Where can I see the metric "Earned comments" for video ads ?

Hello,

 

I have been reading here that we can see as earned actions also video comments, for a video ad.

 

https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/2375431?hl=en

 

"You'll be able to see the following metrics:

  • .......
  • Earned actions, such as earned views, earned comments, earned likes, etc."

 

In the current video reports I cannot see such a metric  , I only have :

- Earned views

- Earned subscribers

- Earned playlist additions

- Earned likes

-Earned shares

Any of the above can be interpreted as the "Earned comments" metric ?

 

As this problem is also an answer variant as a part of the "AdWords Video ads exam", I thought it would be useful to clarify if "earned comments" is indeed available or not as a metric.

Hi Adrian
I think the Youtube account MUST be linked to the AdWords account for these to show. The ones you are seeing are only available when the YT account isn't linked.

Can you check if it's linked? (You should see a yellow banner at the top of your campaigns page if it's not).

I checked 5 AdWords accounts with Video campaigns, all linked to their youtube channel from day 1 of the video campaigns and this metric "Earned comments" is not available. Maybe it was a metric at some point and it was retired. But the video exam still asks about this metric.

@Adrian B

I do not have an answer on the status of "earned comments" but I will notify the Google Partners team that manages the exams about it.
