YouTube managed placements not where ads were shown

I have a video ad I'd like to run only on specific videos or video channels, so I added those to my managed placements. However, after running the ads for a few days I see 0 impressions from my managed placements despite my daily budget being maxed out. When I click on "where ads were shown" tab I see a bunch of other random videos completely unrelated to my targeted placements.

 

How can I limit my YouTube ads to ONLY run on specific videos or YouTube channels?


Thanks!

Are you getting the impressions and views on the placements, that are non-YouTube properties. If yes, then it means, you have targeted "Video Partner on Display Network".

 

So go to the Campaign Setting>> Networks>> uncheck the Video partners on the Display Network.

 

Also, make sure that you have not added any other targeting in your campaigns like Interest or Topics under Video targeting section.
