Get to Know YouTube Video Ads:

YouTube offers a few different types of video ads, each with its own requirements and its own advantages and disadvantages.
  • Video Discovery – These are a form of search ads. They are video ads that appear at the top of search results or in the list of related videos. When a viewer opens one of these up to watch, they will also see a related banner ad next to the video viewer.

  • In-Stream Ads – These ads play automatically before the viewer watches a regular YouTube video. In most cases, they can choose to skip the ad after five seconds so it’s important to make those first five seconds count.

  • Preroll Ads – These videos can’t be skipped but they can only be 10-20 seconds long, depending on whether they appear in the beginning or middle of the viewer’s video.

  • Bumpers – Bumpers are only six seconds long and play at the beginning of regular videos. Because they’re so short, they make great teasers for other media and bigger campaigns.


What is a YouTube ad?

YouTube ads come in a number of different formats, but just like everything else on YouTube, most of them are video. Some YouTube ads are videos that show up in search results or in viewers “related videos” list. Others automatically play while viewers are watching other videos. The length and content of your ad will both depend on which of these formats you choose.
