video ad campaign_targeting criteria 'YouTube search keywords' shows 0 Impressions and 0 views

I was trying to understand which targeting group is doing better on my google online video campaign. In total I see 50 website clicks, 128 thumb, 3093 video, 481 views. When I clicked on the targeting criteria 'YouTube search keywords' I found 0 Impressions and 0 views. I had done a keyword tool research before launching the campaign and used the keywords which are ideal for the campaign. For us it is very important that people ' 'search', 'find' und 'click' on us through the selected keywords, this is our real potential customer. Not the ones who arrive by chance. Can somebody please explain to me why YouTube search keywords counts is 0 and what we need to to change this ?

Kindest regards
Ines

Hello again YwPllc;

 

There is some misunderstanding  here: (if I got you correctly)

The search keyword on YouTube is one of the criteria that you can use to target your video ad on YouTube . It's a targeting method not a reporting.

Hi Moshe my friend,

 

So you mean that all the results " 50 website clicks, 128 thumb, 3093 videos, 481 views" are all generated by the keywords I have targeted ?  Why then when I click on the 'youtube search keyword criteria' it shows 0 inpressions and 0 views. I would like to understand which is the keyword that generates the most impressions/clicks....hoiw can I find out if they all show 0 results ?
