101 Digital Marketing Terms You Need To Know In 2022


Every year, without exception, the number of digital marketing terms you are expected to know continues to grow. Our industry’s lexicon simply refuses to stop expanding  – and it can be hard to keep up.

So here is our yearly round-up of the most important 101 digital marketing terms of the year. As well as learning something new, you’ll also find terms you are familiar with but which are being used more and more for one reason or another.

Some of the below are new words for new ideas, while some are old words for old ideas that have come to prominence once more (I’m looking at you DAGMAR).

And then there are new names for old things (*cough* Google Business Profile *cough*) or people reinventing things that already exist (*cough cough* nCPA *cough cough*).

Don’t get bamboozled by new jargon. Read the below (and consider bookmarking our online advertising glossary) to keep ahead of the curve.

The Ad Rank of an ad will pretty much determine that ad’s level of success.

5) AdChoices: An advertising industry initiative to ensure that behavioural advertising isn’t rejected by the general public by staying within the law.

[Note: I would not recommend websites turn it on as it feels incredibly invasive]

15) ATC: A metric called Add-to-Cart (or Add to Basket in Google Analytics). This is where a user adds something to a cart on an eCommerce site.

99) Two-Click Penalty: A method that Google uses to prevent click fraud. If Google suspects that clicks on display ads on a website are frequently fraudulent or accidental it may implement a Two-Click Penalty. When this happens, when people click on an ad on that site an overlay will appear asking them to Click to go the site (or similar).

This means that ads need two clicks to get someone to the site. This of course reduces the amount of traffic that ads send (legitimately or otherwise) and so also reduces revenue from those ads (which is why it’s called a penalty).
Most useful for: Website Publishing
