The view count shown does not match real views

Hello! I can see more than 6oo views from my TrueView Discovery ad, but they are not added to the views of my video page. Why is that?!

 

I checked if the YouTube channel is properly connected to Analytics and it is. I found this closed thread https://www.en.advertisercommunity.com/t5/AdWords-for-Video/view-count-shown-not-matching-real-views... and tried to follow it, but meanwhile the advanced settings don't look like they do on the screenshot anymore and I cannot find the permission section.

 

Thanks for the help!

Hi Verena K,

 

Since YouTube Analytics includes video data for all videos, and AdWords provides data for a portion of those views (your paid views), there will be differences in video view totals.

 

More info here, under "differences between view statistics".

 

Best,
