Hi Abhinav,

 

This is across all advertisers, not just you. The notification is related to a controversy that YouTube is facing with some big brands not wanting brands tied to certain negative actions of the channels the ads are seen on. There is no timeline for when this will be fixed as it is up to YouTube completely. We all must wait for the outcome.

 

All the Best,

 

James

Hi,

 

The Auction Display ads and Reservation Sponsorship ads are slated to return mid to late May 2017, and the TrueView Discovery ads on YouTube Search are slated to return mid to late June 2017. These times are subject to change, if needed, but the team is working on everything as quickly as possible. 

 

Thanks,

 

James

Hi James,

Since end of June has already passed, is there any new estimated time when TrueView Discovery ads on YouTube Search will be back?

Hi Mike,

 

It is being worked on as quickly as possible. Things should be back soon. Usman's timeline seems pretty solid at this point. 

 

Kind Regards,

 

James

Hi Mike,

 

Very welcome, sir. 

 

Unfortunately, the work continues by the engineering team which extends the timeline (which was always a possibility) and we are not given a new timeline... just that everything is being worked on as quickly as possible. Rest assured, YouTube knows this is highly desired and AdWords knows there is no revenue for them while the ads are not available. 

 

All the Best,

 

James
