Mature Audience Video Promotion

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi there,

 

Just wondering on policy guidelines for Adwords for Youtube.

 

I have a Video which is on Youtube, classified with content warning. It has violent content and hence the classification. It's not an R18 video or anything. Just a promo with language and content that classifies it suitable for 17+

 

On first instance Google has disapproved the video as an Ad for Adwords for Youtube.

 

If anyone has any past experiences or any details to share.

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Cheers

 

Bharat

Hi Bharat T,
Unfortunatly YouTube age-restricted videos cannot be promoted in TrueView ads.

You can read about Age-restricted content here: https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/2802167?hl=en&rd=1
