Some thoughts on YouTube's new partner program policies

Google Preferred - Think with Google

Enforcement of these guidelines will start February 20. I worked very hard to create nearly 400 videos which live on YouTube currently and now I can't even monetize my work?

NEW YORK (AP) - says humans will now review video from its most popular creators after recent complaints. Now, however, they will need 1,000 subscribers to their channel, and a total of 4,000 hours of video viewed over the previous 12 months. Again, not a YouTube star, but YouTube has always been a key part of my online presence so naturally when I heard about the changes YouTube was making to the partner program policies which will take effect starting February 20, 2018 I was anxious my account would be on the chopping block. Some of those video creators reported as much as an 80 per cent drop in sales following YouTube's tighter restrictions. Ads will only run on a channel once the content has been checked and approved. In response, smaller channels are using the comments section of the blog post to advertise their channels.

The penalty save reactivated the crowd - there was some tension and then they scored. In turn, Espanyol defended well, corrected their mistakes and took their chance.

Previously, creators could join YPP if they had more than 10,000 views over the lifetime of their activity on the site. Their email reveals the real reason for this change in the line, "Creators who haven't yet reached this new threshold can continue to benefit from our Creator Academy..."

YouTube says that these changes are geared to reward creators who make engaging content and prevents spammers from gaming the system. Earlier this month we told you about rumblings that the streaming platform would roll out a new subscription streaming service. The video, posted on Sunday, has been removed. YouTube is giving those channels a 30-day grace period to get their numbers up, but if they do not meet the requirements by the end of the grace period, they will no longer be able to earn money through the partner program. They want your time and effort to basically create your own television channel, and they want to pay you a mere pittance of the revenue they generate from your hard work.

YouTube Making It Hellishly Harder to Get Some $$ from Advertising
YouTube says this verification process will be completed by mid-February in the USA and end of March for the rest of the world. On December 31st, Logan Paul uploaded a video to YouTube showing him and his friends visiting Aokigahara , a forest on Mt.

In a blogpost written by two YouTube executives, chief product officer Neal Mohan and chief business officer Robert Kyncl, the company said that "99% of those affected were making less than $100 per year in the last year, with 90% earning less than $2.50 in the last month". There is definitely panic in the air amongst the YouTube community. People grab viral videos, rehost them on their channel, and rake in the revenue. The preferred program isn't fail safe: Logan Paul Vlogs was part of the program before it posted a video from Japan's infamous "suicide forest" that showed the body of a teen who had recently died by suicide, and YouTube dropped the channel from the program afterward.
