YouTube Making It Hellishly Harder to Get Some $$ from Advertising

YouTube Increases its Minimum Thresholds for Earning Revenue

In addition, YouTube said its content management staff will manually screen all videos included in Google Preferred - a premium service that grants advertisers access to YouTube's top-viewed content. Ads will only run on Google Preferred videos verified to be compliant with YouTube's ad criteria.

The downfall from the upload has been massive, and now everybody is feeling it. Google announced changes coming to Youtube regarding monetization.

YouTube blogger Kat Blaque expressed dismay at the new rules, saying the lack of controls on profitable personalities ultimately led the company to impose measures that punish those who post inoffensive content.

Small-time YouTube creators are going to find it harder to make money on the site from next month when the Google-owned company implements new rules to help it focus its resources in a bid to please advertisers. The new rules come into place on February 20, 2018, and they mean that only channels with 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 watch hours in the last 12 months can make money from YPP.

Neymar tears Dijon apart with four goals and two assists
Meunier believes it was unfair to react in such a way, especially given Neymar's overall performance in the commanding win. Argentina forward Angel Di Maria bagged a brace while Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani each scored a goal.

Christophe Paquette, half of the Gatineau-based duo behind YouTube video blog Hops and Bros, said his channel has been feeling the pinch.

On December 31st, Logan Paul uploaded a video to YouTube showing him and his friends visiting Aokigahara, a forest on Mt. Fuji in Japan known as the "Suicide Forest".

For creators, changes will hit the YouTube Partner Program (YPP), which recruits popular creators and gives them better tools for promoting their work and engaging with fans, as well as the option of receiving a cut of the advertising revenue earned from their videos on the site. YouTube says this verification process will be completed by mid-February in the USA and end of March for the rest of the world.

Advertisers don't want their ads — YouTube's lifeblood — running next to troubling videos. In the next few months, a three-tier suitability system will be introduced to enable advertisers to review appropriate placements for their brand versus potential reach trade-offs.

Duterte orders closure of website that reported drug crackdown
In his second State of the Nation Address in July 2017, President Rodrigo Duterte hinted that Rappler has foreign owners. Ressa said that this did not give Omidyar control, but rather, "the power to leave if they don't like what we're doing".

YouTube came under fire from brands on multiple occasions previous year when their ads showed up alongside extreme video content widely considered as unfit for the popular streaming site. It also pledged to closely take into account factors like community strikes, spam and abuse flags to remove inappropriate accounts and channels from YouTube.

In late December, CEO Susan Wojcicki acknowledged in a pair of blog posts that YouTube needed to make changes to how it monitored content on its platform.
