Can someone confirm is using masked links directly to the offer page in in-display ads get your account suspended or if its not permitted. Did they recently change the landing page guidelines for in-display ads?   Thnx

Hi Art S,

 

YouTube channel page or a specific video page URL is allowed for In-display ads. External URLs aren't allowed, probably because the objective of this ad is to get the user to watch the video or other videos in the channel.

 

You can however, use CTAs (requires channel linking) in the ad to direct users to the offer page in your website. More info about video ad policies here.

 

Hope that helps, feel free to write back!
