Can someone explain me what this message means? I saw it today and my conversions dropped to half. I run a display video ad with placement option

Hi @catalin m,

 

Don't quote me on this, but this notification might be related to a controversy that YouTube is facing with some big brands at the moment. Judging by the language used in the notification, I don't think this action is unique to you.

 

Edit: In fact, I've just looked into one of my accounts and I can see the same notification.

Once I tried keyword targeting with "ballet" and I got videos on Trump and how to cleaning toilet with vinegar in placement report. I am not surprised if big companies start to withdraw from YouTube ads.

 Seeing a significant drop in the ad impressions (advertising campaigns on youtube) in the past couple of days. The video campaigns are barely getting any views and im setting the budget to high amounts.

 

Google must be doing some emergency campaign targeting fixing. Hopefully this won't take long as I have about 90 video campaigns active and they're barely getting views Smiley Sad

Thank you, I hope Google sees this and fixes it asap. It's ridiculous. I would promote a hip hop song and target hip hop audience, but get views from weird Chinese videos, abc songs, etc. I haven't seen my ads on some extremist videos though, so that's good Smiley Happy
