Types of YouTube Ads
Trackable with Wicked Reports because the CTA allows you to link to a landing page.
NOTE: In-stream ads require you to manually add UTMs to the tracking params section of your ad. Adwords/YouTube is NOT applying the tracking template to these ads.
NOTE: If you add Cards to your In-Stream video Ads, you will need to add UTM tracking to the links in the Cards as the Template does not get applied to those clicks. We recommend using the same UTMs you use on the In-Stream ads, themselves
In-display Ads(not able to link to an outside landing page)
NOT TRACKABLE with Wicked Reports. However, you can add links and calls to action in your video if someone clicks on it, and to your YouTube Description Links
Links to your YouTube video, and there are two options for the viewer to click to your website after the video has played. If you are able to add tracking links to the CTA inside the video, and the description link, you can track these ads.
HOWEVER... You will not get costs associated with the actual ad. Why? The click is taking people to your YouTube page, or YouTube video, therefore, the click is not trackable by Wicked Reports since you're not sending that traffic to an external URL/Landing Page.
