YouTube Monetization: I May Have to Wait Until WHEN 2020 SMZEESOFT

  We'll return to this top section later, first let's get to the important section about channels still under review. It states we know many of you applying for YPP still see channel under review in the Creator Studio. This means our review team has not come to a clear decision during the initial review, so we're putting extra effort and resources into reviewing your channel multiple times before making a final decision. We are hoping to share our final decisions with all of these channels by the end of the year. In the meantime, the best thing you can do is keep uploading original content as the more info/content to review, the better. All the best practices and policies shared above are relevant for you too! So, yet again, YouTube has set themselves a time frame,

 two months to try and get all of those channels currently in review out of a review by the end of the year. We're going to canvas your opinion on that particular question, but we think we already know what your answer's going to be. The problem is YouTube'strack record on delivering on this particular promise hasn't been good. When YouTube introduced the new monetization requirements in February, which are, of course, 1000 subscribers, 4000 hours of watch time and you have met those requirements, one of three things would happen. You would get accepted into a program, rejected or moved interview 'cause YouTube needed more information. The problem was, many channels didn't get any decision as we moved into summer. I think, at this post, YouTube had realized how much of a backlog they had created by these new requirements. 

- So, by the end of June, if a channel had been waiting 30 days or more, they will be reviewed by the team. - The problem was, a lot of those channels did get a decision and that was to be put into the review and they have been there ever since. So we're not just talking about channels that have just entered the in the review stage, these channels have been there for six months, maybe even an entire year. Now YouTube know that this is a hot potato, well, actually this just a pair of socks, but they do know that monetization is a huge issue for many channels and YouTube users. So they posted a video about this. Unfortunately for some video creators who were right in the middle of this in the review process, this video may have done more harm than good. - And do we have a rough ETA for how long that secondary review might take? 

-d even when you do get a decision, it can be vague and downright unhelpful. Now, okay, an automated email, such as this one, that puts you in review, we can accept. But when the following email, which rejects a channel from the program is also automated, this is where frustration can start to mount. At this stage, a video creator doesn't want to read general guidelines and policies. They want to know exactly what videos and what content is causing concern for YouTube. - In this case, the final call's always made by a human being. We use all kinds of systems,machine-learning stuff, of course, to give those people information, to give them signals about what's going on with a given channel. But a person who makes the final call. - And I think, for most video creators, this is what it boils down to. If a human is going to review my channel and make the final decision, 

then I, as a video creator deserve a human response, not an automated response, but something that tells me what policy I'm maybe not following and which videos, precisely, are the ones causing the issue so that I can go and rectify that and apply again in the future. It won't surprise you to know that we had a lot more to say on this subject so we posted a comment on that video from Creator Insider. There is a link onscreen now. Do go check it out. Now while we did say there was no official way to contact, hang on, right. While I did say there's no official way to contact YouTube on this topic, there are a couple of suggestions we do have which may jab then in the right place. The Team YouTube Twitter account is there to answer stories coming from this technique so if you want to know more click and watch the video onscreen now. Alright, let's now say that your channel has been in review and you did get a response but its that dreaded duplication. What does that mean? - A lot of time that refers to content that's coming from other sources, where the creator really isn't adding much to it. So that could be videos from other platforms or it could be TV content.

 - On the surface, that sounds relatively straightforward, however, there is some really important wording in the forum post we showed you at the start of this video that sheds more light. It says it's important to note that duplicative content is not just about copyright, the spirit of this YPP policy is to make sure we're only allowing channels into the program when the content adds value and is original and relevant. There are two crucial elements there. First of all the spirit of the YouTube Partner Program. This element adds judgment to the requirement. So not only do you need 1000 subscribers rated voice, a channel re-uploads other people's content, and generally, like, content farms that just, you know, are producing content to try and kind of game the system, will not be monetizable. (cow moos) - Now I know what you are going to say at this point, aren't I guilty of this exact thing in this very video? I am indeed using clips from the Creator InsiderChannel for this video, the difference is fair use. In a nutshell, fair use allows people to use the copyrighted content without the owner's permission if it meets various guidelines that, due to the nature of video content,
