Youtube doesn't show any image ads, is there any change?
We're using Adwords >Display Network only > Image ads for a while without a problem.
But starting 28th March 2017, total impression, conversion etc decreased dramatically like impression decreased 5m to 87k. (We mostly used placement campaigns)
And we saw that our campaigns couldn't use the budget, too.
We were receiving +90% conversion from Youtube and we saw that our ads were started not to be shown on Youtube after 28th March.
As we checked youtube as a normal user, we didn't see any image ads of other advertisers, too.
You know tiny yellow dots below the video which shows that ad is coming at the point, right? We checked many videos and these points as we did this many many times before to check competitors, but we didn't see any image ads of other advertisers. We could only see interstitial video ads.
Is there any problem on Youtube or something is changed with advertising to youtube?
This problem occurs only in Turkey? (Our location is Turkey and we only show ads to Turkey.)
As we contacted Adwords support, they told us that they didn't receive a notification like this yet.
Thank you for reading,
Have a nice day

Hi @Deniz Y,
Recently, YouTube had a number of cases where brands ads appeared on content that was not aligned with their values (terrorist, isis, hate speech, etc.)
Google is working on removing ads more effectively from content that is attacking or harassing people based on their race,
religion, gender or similar categories.
