I have created the Adwords campaign for video ads to increase the views of our youtube, it has been approved but still no impressions & views were counted simply it shows zero. Kindly help me to get it resolved. Even I have updated my bidding costs I'm facing the same issues.

Hi,

The most common reason: May you bid too low "If it's your first time using AdWords, we recommend choosing a budget between $5 and $50 – as long as that's within your advertising budget." https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/6385083?hl=en&ref_topic=3123098&visit_id=1-636330215975472...

Also check the following things that could narrow the targeting:

1) Are you targeting a very small city with a potential of very few users?
2) Have you restricted gender targeting by removing "unknown" gender?
3) Have you restricted age targeting to only one age segment?
4) Did you target only a couple of interests?
5) Did you set negative targeting for age, gender or any other criteria


Thanks!!

I also get no impressions either.

 

My intention was to do IN-STREAM advertising. The idea was so that the video I am promoting would appear before or after a set of videos I was going to target.   

1. I chose 75 Youtube videos to target. I put the 75 URLs in the Placements > YouTube area

2. I made no restrictions or any other thing. I didn't touch anything else.

3.  I made a bid, that was higher than the one AdWords was suggesting.

 

I get Zero impressions.

Maybe these 75 videos don't have any organic traffic on youtube so you can't expect anything with your instream ads

Hi, I think there is something wrong with In Stream - Video Ads on Youtube.
The reason is that I placed the same 75 videos on "Banner Ads" placement
and they did generate impressions. That means there is some activity,
but for some reason "in Stream" is not getting impressions.

Is there a way to get a Google Adwords representative to look into my
account? I want to get it right so I can have "in-Stream" advertising
from now on more often.

Not much help to you but I've had similar problems.  I targeted 63 channels with instream and saw 0 impressions.  i targeted the same channels with discovery and that worked.   I then took individual videos from the 63 channels and targeted these with instream and that also worked.

Are the 75 placements you've added video urls or channel urls?  If channel, try adding the recent videos from each of these channels instead and see if that works?
