Youtube estimated view WAY off of actual views from ads

Hello everyone I recently bought a campaign from youtube and it gave me an estimation of 750 views. I thought I could start out with this and pay more later. Well I bought it and a week later I had 50 views. Did I do something wrong? I am not sure what to do but I most defiantly do not feel very satisfied or comfortable for paying for something that I didn't receive.

Hi Kyle,


Thanks for posting. It's important to bear in mind with AdWords for Video campaigns that you only pay when someone watches your video. The estimate is there to give you a rough guide of what might happen in the campaign but it isn't a guarantee. It also doesn't affect how you are charged.


I'll check with our guys to see if there's anything they can do to help you out. But I just want to clarify that you are only charged for the views you actually receive, not an estimate that you might see in your account.
