Want to place my ads to all viewers on youtube videos and channels but not on youtube homepage.

Hello,

 

I am trying to promote my videos on youtube videos. I am getting lots of views but all of them are coming from youtube.com homepage but the retention rate of those users is very low and those who are coming from youtube videos or channels is high. So i want to display my videos ads on youtube videos and channel only. 

Is there any way to remove youtube homepage while running video ads on youtube?

Hello.

 

I've never tried it myself, but can you try adding

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch
https://www.youtube.com/channel/

 

as placements? /watch is how every video page starts and /channel/ is how every channel page starts. In theory ads should not appear on youtube.com withouth /watch or /channel/ after it.

 

Let us know how it turns out. You can't exclude youtube.com (use it as a negative placement) because this would prevent your ads from appearing anywhere on youtube.

 

Hope it helps.
