I HAVE GOOD NEWS! YouTube monetization was disabled for my channel yesterday but is enabled today, 6/21/2018. I was looking at a video on my channel and saw an ad play at the beginning. I quickly checked the channel settings and it’s active!
For those of you relying on YouTube for side money or your entire income, you are aware of the monetization delays. YouTube is not paying their video creators. They have put a hold on the ability to make money on videos created and say it will take until the end of June for them to get caught up. YouTube has been saying this for months.
I currently have close to 5,000 subscribers and over 4,000 hours of viewing and monetization is enabled! This hopefully shows YouTube is not favoring larger channels first. Don’t lose hope. Your YouTube channel could be monetized any day now. Remeber to follow their rules and good luck to you all.
A growing number of video creators / YouTube partners have their mind set to believe YouTube monetization will never happen. YouTube monetization delays have been forecasted until end of june 2018. YouTube has been stringing along their partners since November 2017, taking away monetization and placing the blame on not having enough help to sort through all the videos and channels?!
