The percentage of impressions that received a link click out of the total number of impressions.
Why it is important
CTR (link click-through rate) indicates how many link clicks your ad received compared to the number of impressions it received. It is a common metric used by online advertisers to understand how ads drive traffic to websites and other destinations.

Suppose you're running a Facebook ad campaign to drive users to your website, and during the campaign, your ad generated 500 link clicks from users. Additionally, your ad had 20,000 total impressions, which represents the number of times your ad was shown to users.
