What is the difference between CPM and CPC pricing?


CPM stands for Cost per mille viz. Cost per Thousand Impression. You pay when your ad is shown 1000 times. 

CPC stands for Cost per Click. You pay when someone clicks on your ad.


Can the impressions be distributed equally across he campaign?


Daily impression delivery doesn’t remain constant but can fluctuate by up to 200%.


Can there be a difference between number of clicks reported by the publisher to clicks being shown in my Google analytics?


The clicks shown on the report may not match the actual visits (as per your analytics) to the website as there is usually a significant click to drop off rate. Every click recorded by the advertiser's dashboard does not end up on the landing page which causes this discrepancy.
