Ads that appear before other videos on YouTube, beside videos that are playing and in search results.
There are 3 main types of YouTube ads, namely: Banner Ads, In-Video Overlay ads & In-Stream video ads. There are also several other configurations advertisers can consider such as, which part of your banner ads will appear where, or whether you want your ad to be skippable or not.
These ads appears to the right of the feature video and above the video suggestions list. For larger players, this ad may appear below the player.
These ads are semi-transparent overlay ads that appear on the lower 20% portion of your video.
These skippable video ads allow viewers to skip ads after 5 seconds, if they choose. Inserted before, during, or after the main video.
These non-skippable video ads must be watched before your video can be viewed.
These long non-skippable video ads may be up to 30 seconds long.
These ads can appear before, during, or after the main video.
Sponsored cards display content that may be relevant to your video, such as products featured in the video.
Viewers will see a teaser for the card for a few seconds. They can also click the icon in the top right corner of the video to browse the cards.
