Difference between video and online campaigns

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I created an ad for my youtube video and it is placed under 'All video campaigns'


What is the difference between a video campaign and an online campaign?


I cannot seem to find my ad even when I look for it on the ad preview and diagnostics page.

Hi Justin


Thanks for posting! An AdWords for Vdieo campaign would be one where you are using videos as your creatives, whereas the campaigns under 'All Online Campaigns' are either for text ads or display ads (image ads or animated ads).


There isn't an ad preview tool for AdWords for Video campaigns at the moment I'm afraid (although that's a great idea!), which means you would need to look at the stats in your campaign to see how your ads are getting on. 


Hope this helps a little!
