auto-tracking video ad clicks

Hi

 

I get clicks from video ads shown at YouTube (video ad campaign), but I don´t get any reporting for these clicks in Analytics. Do I need to manually tag links in videos to get that?

David,
If these have been setup as an AdWords campaign then the information should be reporting through to Google Analytics (ensuring that Auto-tagging has be switched on).

You can of course manually tag the URL's if this doesn't seem to be operating.

Thanks,
Matt

Hi

 

Well they are not showing up in Analytics. Yes AdWords and Analytics accounts are linked and auto-tagging is on (sorry my mistype in post-title, should be auto-tagging, not auto-tracking).

 

By the way, I actually wonder where these clicks come from. Cause links in videos are not clickable. What are "clicks" reported in the video-campaign?
