How to track keywords for YouTube Discovery ads?

I want to track the wining keywords with an external tracking program (ClickMagic). I know that for text ads my page URL needs to be:  

 

www.mysite.com/{keyword}     <<< for text ads

 

 

If i place the same URL to my YouTube Card/Annotation (www.mysite.com/{keyword}), it don't work because the keyword is lost... so in my tracking program i see only the word "keyword".

Hi 

Youtube discovery ads will land the user on your youtube channel / video and from there you are taking user to your website via annotations. 

 

If I am assuming the user journey as you intend it to be then unfortunately there is no way to carry keyword from youtube ads and pass it along in annotation links.
