In an attempt to cut down abusive accounts and copyright theft, YouTube is planning on keeping the ads away from channels that have less than 10000 views.
On Thursday, the company said, that the channels must reach a total of 10,000 views before they can qualify for the platform’s ads which is the easiest way to monetize a channel on the platform.
The company is expecting that this will cut down accounts that violates copyrights policies and starting from Thursday, Google has reconfigured its YouTube Partner Program that activates ads on channels only after a channel has received a combined view of 10,000. The platform however, only counts a view if someone watches a video for at least 30 seconds. Ariel Bardin, vice president of the product said in a post, “Together these new thresholds will help ensure revenue only flows to creators who are playing by the rules.”
However, if you have managed to earn money using a channel with less than 10,000 views, rest assured, you will not be affected but you might gain ideas on how to increase the viewers of your channel by going to the platform’s “YouTube Creator Academy” to reach the 10,000 views goal.
