Hi everybody,


I have a this small problem with youtube ads, I am running a small video (in-stream ad)  I have chosen  my audience based on interests and demography. 


The problem is my video is being played on many semi or adult content which is obviously not my TG, I tried category exclusion but i couldn't find adult category,


Any suggestion how do i stop my ads being played on unwanted sites.

Hi SuryaKant S,


Welcome to Adwords Community Smiley Happy


You can exclude specific videos or channels from your overall targeting group with placement exclusions:


Videos: Use the URL format[VIDEO ID]. For 12345abcdefgHIJ is the ID of the video. You can find the ID of the video by looking at the URL of the actual video while watching it on YouTube: (The video ID is the long alpha-numeric code within the Watch page URL after "v=".)


Channel pages: Enter the URL of the channel. For example: To exclude all the video content within a channel, you'll need to exclude each video individually.

Hope that help.
