What is Frequency Capping?
Frequency capping definition: frequency capping is an online advertising term meaning to limit the number of times an ad is shown to a specific user.
Frequency capping is used to prevent overexposure to an ad, and is applied in one of two ways:
- Manually: the advertiser chooses a frequency cap before launching a campaign
- Automatically: the advertising platform applies a frequency cap
Each of these has its own benefits and should be informed by analytics data.
