Hi Shradhyeya,

Its very hard to calculate the number of clicks "lost".

First you need to understand that impression share (IS) is the number of impressions you've received divided by the estimated number of impressions you were eligible to receive.

However, just because you get an impression, does not guarantee that you'll receive a click.

So really, you'll want to understand how many impressions you've lost out on, and focus on increasing your impression share, and quality of your ad to encourage clicks when it is showing.
