GDN video campaign

Not applicable
# 1
Not applicable



Has anyone had a massive decrease in both impressions and clicks for video GDN ads?


I have and cannot see a clear reason as to why as no settings have been altered and as far as I can tell the recent adwords updates should not have affected my GDN targeting.


Any advice would be appreciated

What all formats are you running inside your Video Adwords campaigns?


What is the status of your ad? Is it serving approved or serving approved but limited?


If it is limited then there might be some issue with any particular format of video ad i.e. In search, In slate, In stream or In display...You need to identify that and fix it if that's the case.


Did you exclude any placements inside your target settings? It could be one of the reason for impressions or views going down.
