Impression Tracking for Youtube Video

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi

We would like to track impressions for our youtube videos so we can retarget viewers with a brand survey. I was wondering if (and where) it is possible to upload a 3rd party impression tracker ? 
Thank you for your help

Hi David,

We can't vouch for any 3rd party solutions in the Community, and if you found one that worked for you, you would need to work with them and their documentation to determine if it would work with AdWords.

However, I think that may not be entirely necessary. You can already set up a remarketing campaign in AdWords which targets people who have viewed videos on your channel just by linking your AdWords and YouTube accounts--no 3rd party tracking necessary.

Does that address your issue, or are you asking about something else?
