Campaign Performance report

The features described in this article are available only to partners who use YouTube's Content ID matching system.

The Campaign Performance report provides data on clicks to a campaign over the set of assets applied to the campaign, and is available on a weekly basis from the Reports section of the Content Manager. Use the report to assess how different campaigns are performing over time relative to one another.

This report does not include default “Feature official videos on fan uploads” links, or automatic links for transactional content. Refer to this Help Center article to learn more about how to choose the campaign type that’s right for you.
