I am trying to post a display ad to a specific youtube video that mentions our product. I would like a very easy way for the viewer to go to our site. I don't want to advertise to youtube as a whole or to a keyword on youtube. Just that specific video.

Hi @Niels G

 

Placement targeting also work for display campaigns. Placements are locations on the Google Display Network where your ads can appear. A placement can be a website or a specific page on a site, a mobile app, video content, or even an individual ad unit.

 

You can learn more about managed placement targeting and also see how to add, edit or remove managed placements.

 

Hope this helps!

Hi @Niels G

 

Welcome to the Google Advertiser Community.

 

Placement targeting allows you to target unique channels, videos, apps, websites, or placements within websites. This means that you can target a specific YouTube video as a placement. Learn more about video targeting here: https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/2454017?hl=en

 

Follow these steps to add placement targeting:

  1. Click the Video targeting tab in your AdWords account and select an ad group.
  2. Click the Placements sub-tab.
  3. On the "Managed" sub-tab, click +PLACEMENTS.
  4. Add URLs or search for the YouTube placements and Display Network placements you want. Click >> to add, and then click Save.

Learn more about adding targeting to your video campaigns here: https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/7131506

 

However, it is important to know the kind of targeting you want to do will narrow your target audience and limit your potential impressions.

 

All the best,

Taslim

Will this only work for video targeting or can I also use this for a display campaign?  

 

I put the exact URLs of the youtube videos in the multiple placements area and it came up as so: http://imgur.com/a/WDkmY
