If you have an online shopping business and are enjoying great revenue with your existing YouTube channel and Mageto mobile app, then it’s the time to think about increasing your views of YouTube videos as the global leading online video streaming giant has announced to block ads on channels with under 10,000 views.
“Video channels on YouTube must now have more than 10,000 total views in order to have ads displayed on their videos,” says YouTube.
This major shift in policy the company said is designed to punish rule breakers. The step has been taken to ensure the user-generated content doesn’t end-up positioning ads next to questionable content. Only genuine channels with more than 10,000 view total across all their posted videos will be allowed to have ads posted. The measure has been in development since November last year, and it’s intended to block channels which steal content from other sources.
The step will only put a hurdle for the fraudulent and block channels from making money from stolen content, “With immediate effect, Youtube will no longer serve ads on YPP videos until the channel reaches the minimum lifetime views of 10k. This step will give the platform to determine the validity and reliability of a channel. This will also allow us to check if the guidelines are followed by channel owners. By keeping this limitation, we also ensure that there will be minimum impact on our aspiring creators,”
Once the creators reach the threshold, the platform will evaluate said aspiring creators, just to make sure that the channel meets all the requirements and guidelines set by YouTube. The online video browsing platform is facing a significant backlash from displaying ads from partners against content that is found to be objectionable. Following the issue, various leading brands like PepsiCo, Coca-Cola and more have already pulled advertising other than target search following reports by the WSJ of the ads being displayed against unsavory content.
YouTube launched its YouTube Partner Program (YPP) to everyone in 2007. The launch achieved great response with millions of online channel owners applying to have their videos monetized. The advertisers could have access to obscure audience while offering a chance to earn money for the channel owners. Not everyone who applies has such noble aims, though.
So, if you have a channel YouTube which is not receiving revenue anymore, it’s the time that you start promoting it and add new videos to bring more views.
