How do assure my views via AdWords count as views on YouTube?

I see my campaign is running smoothly as it has in the past. However, my views on YouTube are not being counted as they have in the past and say they should be in the campaign. Will this update? Or, is there a way to make sure the campaign views are being counted on YouTube? Thank you!

Hi there,

 

Thanks for posting to the Community. It's possible that there may be a lag in your video views incrementing since video views on YouTube are not always updated automatically. The other scenario in which a video ad would not increment your view count is if the ad were an in-stream ad that auto-plays, for example, when the main video is embedded on a third-party site. If an ad auto-plays and a user does not choose to watch it, then this would not increase your video views.

 

Let me know if you have additional questions,
Cassie
