ORP stands for Open Recommendation Platform. ORP enables users to test and track their algorithm's statistics, including: impressions, clicks, ctr and any errors caught.
Yes. As ORP utilizes Twitter Bootstrap, the site and its components resize no matter what screen size you use. Although, the zoom functionality is imparied on small resolutions. A notebook or desktop is recommended for an optimal experience.
The Dashboard displays a general overview of your account. The area graphs display the overall statistics for each algorithm associated with your account. Both enabled and disabled algorithms are shown to help you gauge your results. The buttons to the right of each area graph [example] control the comparitive statistics of said algorithm. To the right of these are three (3) icons , , and .
  • displays number of errors created recently by the algorithm.
  • opens a form that allows you to edit and save the settings of the algorithm.
  • will open a confirmation prompt that on acceptance will remove the link between your account and the algorithm.
All new algorithms can be added with the Add new algorithm form.
The Statistics page displays a single modular graph and table to convey the data accumulated over time. The graph and table assist in visualizing the growth and decay of the selected algorithms across local publishers.
The Debug page displays all errors caught or generated throughout the process of displaying your ads.
The account page allows editing of vital account information, such as:
  • Email
  • Password
The graphs with zooming and data manipulation functionality appear on the Statistics and Debug pages. These line graphs display a default period of 3 months prior from your current visiting date for all account related algorithms on all publishers. These dates and the data sources for the graph can be modified in the form directly below the corresponding graph. Above each graph there are buttons containing both a title and an averaged value. Upon clicking one of these buttons the correct dataset will be displayed in the graph. Scrolling over the line on the upper graph will display important data points and their associated date. The lower graph is utilized as a controller. By clicking and while still holding down the left mouse button, dragging the mouse, a new intermediate date selection will be rendered above.
