Asset Insights

Asset Insights track user ratings and usage statistics of images that are used in third-party websites, marketing campaigns, and Adobe's creative solutions. It helps provide insights about performance and popularity of the images.
Assets Insights captures user activity details, such as the number of times an image is rated, clicked, and impressions (number of times an image is loaded on the website). It assigns scores to images based on these statistics. You can use the scores and performance statistics to select popular images for inclusion in catalogs, marketing campaigns, and so on. You can even formulate archival and license renewal policies based on these statistics.
For Assets Insights to capture usage statistics for images from a website, you must include the embed code for the image in the website code.
To let Asset Insights display usage statistics for assets, first configure the feature to fetch reporting data from Adobe Analytics. For details, see Configure Asset Insights .
Insights are only supported and provided for images.

    Usage score describes the numbers of times asset is used in various solutions.
    The Impressions score is the number of times the asset is loaded on the web site. The number displayed under Clicks is the number of times the asset is clicked.
  4. Review the Usage Statistics section to know which entities the asset was part of and which creative solutions recently used it. The higher the usage, the greater the chances that the asset is popular among users. Usage data is displayed under the following heads:
    • Asset : The number of times the asset was part of a collection or compound asset.
    • Web & Mobile : The number of times the asset was part of websites and apps.
    • Social : The number of times the asset was used in solutions, such as Adobe Social and Adobe Campaign.
    • Email : The number of times the asset was used in email campaigns.
