Google AdWords BugWe have confirmed reports in the Google AdWords Help forum that in-search Google AdWords video ads are not working.

Chris, an AdWords advertiser reported the bug last week saying it simply stopped working. He said while in-search ads stopped working, the in-display started working suddenly. Here is how he described the issue:

Before, In-Search was working fine - I got nearly 2.000.000 ad impressions with 50.000 views in just THREE days - it was very easy to get views on your video. In-Display was NOT working at that time. Now, In-Display has been fixed, but In-Search continues not to work properly.

Google's Zee confirmed the issue in the thread saying:

I've checked with our technical specialists, and they confirmed that this issue is affecting some in-search campaigns not to spend their entire budget. The engineers are working hard on fixing this issue as fast as they can. When I get any update on the fix, I'll announce it.

In the thread there are screen shots showing the impression and click issues caused by this bug.
