No impressions on targeted placements for In Display & In Stream, why?

Follower ✭ ✭ ☆

Hi there,

 

I've got an AdWords YouTube campaign running but am having a few issues.

I have In Display campaigns and In Stream campaigns running, and I have set targeted Google Display Network placements with a long list. However when viewing my report data, I'm not seeing any impressions/views on the targeted placement list, and all other videos my ad was shown on are irrelevant sites.

I don't have any other targeting options defined so am unsure why my ads have been displayed this way - I thought it was limited to my targeted placements?

 

Appreciate any help!

Yes Matt, that's one of the ad formats, your ads are shown in display network and also search results. The set up is as like other video campaigns and not as a google display advert.

Hi Matt
I would suggest you do a placement diagnosis first to check why your ads are not appearing where you expected them to. For a step by step guide, please visit https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/2497830?hl=en. Hope this helps. Please feel free to ask if it does not.

Thanks

According to support, my Campaign Settings included Video and YouTube so where I had included only YouTube channels in my adgroups placements, spend had been used up on Google Display Network, and vice-versa.

Does anyone know if its possible to run video ads on the Google Display Network which doesn't include YouTube? Would this have to be setup as a Google Display advert, so not a video ad?
