Google Analytics Reports for Site Moderation

After the registration in the Clickio platform, every site undergoes several check-ups, among which traffic verification. Monthly traffic is verified using independent services such as Alexa, SimilarWeb, ComScore.  In case of the impossibility of such verification, publishers must grant access to Google Analytics / Yandex Metrica. Alternatively, publishers can provide Google Analytics reports for the last 6 months, attesting traffic volume, its structure, and sources.
