Third party tracking pixel - youtube

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,

 

I would like to add a pixel tracking script to a Youtube ad so that I can track the visitors through my tool instead of Youtube analytics or google adwords.

Hence, I have one URL that has the pixel tracking code and one URL that redirects back to my website. 

 

So far I cannot figure out how to do that.

 

Any suggestions are welcome Smiley Happy

Hi @Dionysios Z

 

We've done this for some additional 3rd party tracking solutions on YouTube.  

 

You may be able to submit a request here or via AdWords Support/Your Dedicated rep.  I'm not sure what you're looking to implement but the vendor of the pixel may have to be on this list:  https://developers.google.com/third-party-ads/adwords-vendors?rd=1

 

I've only ever done this with a certified vendor and our reps handled it for us.

 

Hope this helps!

Hi Tommy,

 

Thanks for the tips.

Does the link will work for Youtube impression tracking too?

 

Cheers,

As far as I know, you can't ad any scripts on your youtube that would count impression - but if you use a click tracking software, you can count the clicks and the conversions back to the tracking software. You wont know the number of impressions tough. 

 

What tracking software do you use?
