Now a days everyone was choosing YouTube as a platform to earn money through YouTube Partner Program. Through this you can sign up at YouTube Partner Program and monetize your videos to earn money within minutes. This method helped YouTube grow faster but it also brought some problems. People started uploading others hard working videos without their permission and uploading illegal contents. This recently got YouTube a lot of troubles.
Now YouTube took a strong decision against this, from now on you won’t be able to monetize your videos until you have 10,000 Views of your channel. If you are a legit YouTube’r or content creator it won’t stop you, but those spammers won’t have that patience to get 10k views before monetizing. This will help YouTube Partner Program to fight and make YouTube a cleaner place.
“In a few weeks, we’ll also be adding a review process for new creators who apply to be in the YouTube Partner Program. After a creator hits 10k lifetime views on their channel, we’ll review their activity against our policies,” wrote Ariel Bardin, YouTube’s VP of product management. “If everything looks good, we’ll bring this channel into YPP and begin serving ads against their content. Together these new thresholds will help ensure revenue only flows to creators who are playing by the rules.”
This is a great step taken by YouTube to clean YouTube Partner Program
