HI

 

I'm setting up a campaign targeting the display network and choosing Youtube specifically. I'm a bit confused about the various YouTube placement options available.

 

I'm looking to place ads on the main pages where video content appears, but not show ads at the bottom of a video when it is playing. 

 

Which is the best placement option to choose?

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi

 

Thanks for your responses. I think I've found my answer now.

 

I want to use image and text ads on YouTube so I have created a campaign targeting the Display Network and have chosen 'YouTube' as a managed placement.

 

I didn't want the ads to show on videos when they play in the player so have excluded the 'in-video' category.

 

Hopefully I have done this correctly.

Hi WRD,

 

I am not sure if you happen to use the Placement tool

http://support.google.com/adwords/answer/2471191

 

What you can do is that you can filter ideas based on ad types i.e. Text, display, instream....

 

I hope that helps somewhere!

Hi

 

Yes, I have used this, but I'm not sure what the placement options mean.

 

For example, if I choose the following placements, where will my ads appear?

 

 

'youtube.com: PyvYTWatch'  'youtube.com: PyvWatchNoAdX'

 

Thanks

Your ads will be shown based on the type of ads you choose (Instream,  promoted video, banners ...etc) and the types of ads slots available on   the YouTube channel .
