I know that I can target my video ad to specific videos on youtube. I'm wondering if the same is possible with my text overlay display ads.

Hi @Krishna M,

 

I do not believe so as this is not what text ads are meant to do. 

 

You can use placements with display ads or you may like to use image overlay ads...

 

Image ads created in AdWords Display campaigns can appear as overlays on YouTube videos. Go to the Display Network tab and add "YouTube.com" to the "Placements" targeting to use an image ad as an overlay.

  • Supported sizes: 468x60 and 728x90
  • Image formats: JPEG, JPG, PNG, GIF

Ads that are served by third-party won’t appear as image overlays on videos because they are classified as HTML5 creatives.

 

Kind Regards,

 

James

Hi James,

Thank you for the reply. I tried adding video placements to the image ads
as you said but I still cant target my ad to a specific video. It seems the
only way I can do that is by using a video ad. Am I right?
Thanks again!

Regards,
Krishna
