Hi,

I want to create a video campaign in AdWords for my youtube video and track the conversions. Conversions for me: if people will share my video or make a like on it. Is it possible to do it with adwords?

Hi Alexey
Unfortunately, no. You cannot assign these actions as conversions. However, there are share and view metrics available in AdWords so that you can track them. If you set up a video campaign, they automatically become available in your video campaign reports. If you can't see them, add the columns manually.

You can't use them to optimize for conversions but it's better than having no visibility into them at all. Hope that helps.

Sorry, could you please clarify? If I correctly understand I can see some statistics for share and views. I cannot see statistics on likes. And I cannot manage my campaign based on shares and views. I can only see them.

Is it correct?
