Video List Transparency

A new level of visibility, with targeting and optimization that lets you plan smarter for your clients. In addition to targeting channels and categories, you can now target your YouTube campaign down to specifically selected videos at scale for your creative message to run adjacent to. As a bonus, by targeting to the video level, you will be able to start reporting out on YouTube performance at the video level (something that cannot be done with non-placement targeting).

How it Works

There’s a method behind the madness.


We curate and enter keywords and phrases to generate a list of relevant YouTube videos. Each video includes a proprietary placement quality VueScore.


We add Channel IDs and video blacklists to focus in on the campaign’s contextual target and brand suitability.


We adjust this list by video publish date, engagement minimums, and optional content categories.


Using our VueCast machine learning algorithm, we apply an anticipated next 30-day view forecast for each collection.

& Finally…

All collections go through an extensive manual review process by our team to ensure brand safety and contextual alignment.
