2018 - Adsense for Youtube New Ad Monetization Rules - Small Channels

January 2018 Youtube announced changes to their Advertising rules relating to channels that show Ads...



10000 Views
4000 Hours per Year
1000 Channel Subscribers...

This pretty much kills of 90% of small hardworking content creators.... or as YouTube puts it...

"Though these changes will affect a significant number of channels, 99% of those affected were making less than $100 per year in the last year, with 90% earning less than $2.50 in the last month. Any of the channels who no longer meet this threshold will be paid what they’ve already earned based on our AdSense policies..."

So here's the thing... We are a small channel and like almost all the other small channels we know, have a few loyal subscribers. The content created is created from passion and a willingness to make a happier positive difference... We are not going to argue if this move is good or bad and all the stuff you would see on Forbes etc... Here are the facts...



We began our content creating careers 3 years ago... and when the first email to monetize a video came from google we were excited... Thinking it would change our lives we enabled and signed up. The Ads were on the video and boom... We were Youtube Partners... How nice it sounded... 

Adsense payments rules indicate a R1000.00/$100.00 threshold... Which means you can withdraw the money only after the amount passes the threshold. 

The first year passed and the amount was ... Not alot... Not even 10% of the threshold... Not even dinner, a nice meal or a day out at the park... Our posts were more informative than created for viral. They target specific niches of business and people. So we assumed the penny's were a result of this. Furthermore we cannot withdraw the pennies due to the Threshold. Ok... the good thing is we are not relying on this partnership for our daily bread and butter. Work continues as normal. 

You will blow more money and time and data... Much more...

So we logged back into Google last year around July 2017... and things were not much different. The figures had not yet reached the threshold and had peaked to about 80%... So basically 90% of small advertisers will not or never reach the threshold. So their $2.50 will never get paid. But the advertiser payed google along time ago. The money is has earned interest and grown exponentially. Now our figures are not Youtube Preferred figures or anything like that but they are good and target specific niches. 



To cut the long story short... Most channels and small businesses may get to 10000 views, with a little godly luck may get the 1000 subscribers but will never reach 4000 hours of views... That is 240 000 minutes. Even if you do... the second later Google can announce more stricter changes which leaves you blank again.

So as a small time business you would be way better of if you focused your business on business. Google is blaming the new rules on "Bad Actors" however unless and until google can humanly verify and check all channels rather than using machine learning algorithms... problems will continue to arise. True human potential and individuals will never be recognized, found and these individuals will move along.

Grow A Network of Social Media Followers

How To: Grow A Network of Social Media Followers...

Back in 2013-2014 we sat down with Inland Finder ... The company had some 234 followers on twitter and about 300 friend likes on Facebook... It had also only purchased the www.ladysmith.info domain and had approached us to Web Design and Search Engine Optimize. With our little and fresh knowledge Live Lab steadied on full steam with boastful confidence


Excited about the new Startup we called 10 local well established businesses to advertise on the www.ladysmith.info domain. 9 of them told us to F#%&Off they are not interested as they are paying the local newspapers.... Confidence smacked down within a few hours... Boomed... Bashed and Broken...

So we sat down with Inland Finder and explained to them that we are dealing with a Donkey Years ago advertising Dynamic. These businesses are NOT advanced and people still have Nokia 3310's. They have mediocre facebook pages and no clue about twitter.



The company... Not to be outdone by sharks sniffing around... Purchased 2 more .info domains... making a total of 3...

www.ladysmith.info - www.amajuba.infowww.estcourt.info ....

Basically the 3 adjacent towns next to Ladysmith .... In a rare twist of Luck Inland Finder had approached Geo Solutions to advertise.... Geo Solutions was not happy with the Local Advertising as their reach was local. The company saw potential as made an offer to purchase Inland Finder. The offer was accepted and the new bosses insisted that rural areas be tagged. Geo Solutions provided Live Lab Design with a list of areas that the company operates and we tagged these areas to the Key Words...

Numerous Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc accounts fell under our Social Media Management and the responsibility to grow their following was enormous.

We only followed back mostly and saw steady progress... We also only retweeted and shared verified links, stayed away from news and focused primarily on happy build a life for yourself content. Most of our following was farm and small town people. Rural Entrepreneur Development...

People began to Notice... More importantly Inland Finder's following grew... The company had found some good local businesses with the added trust. 



So we did not feel so bad about all the data blown and costs spent in theory and development. Facebook nor Google or Twitter can control the internet. It can control your feed but sooner or later something or someone smarter comes along. Betting on them is like betting on Nokia back then. The wonder of evolution and time. However these two giants seem stable minded and look like they will be around for some time so we going for the safety and give them the Thumbs Up. Similar to a Nokia they did the Job and Seldom Break. The sponsored posts are an awesome feature. 



We also began following followers of interest, retweeting, sharing other businesses and influencers content. everyone has a story to tell. So our follower counts are wonkey and we Love IT.. 


Time, Patience and Real Content that makes a difference and changes peoples lives... As you cannot milk skinny cows... You first have to Fatten them up...
