Recently, YouTube announced that, YouTube will no longer show advertisements on the channels with less than 10,000 lifetime views.
In their official blog, Ariel Bardin, VP of Product Management said “Today, more creators are making a living on YouTube than ever before. However, with this growth we’ve started seeing cases of abuse where great, original content is re-uploaded by others who try to earn revenue from it. To help protect creator revenue, we recently made it easy for anyone to report an impersonating channel. To date, this change has helped us terminate hundreds of thousands of channels violating our policies. Now, we’re taking another step to protect creators by updating the thresholds required to join the YouTube Partner Program.”
They also said that, it will be adding a review process for the new creators who apply to be in the YouTube Partner Program (YPP). Once the creator’s channel got 10,000 views, YouTube would review their activity and add the channel to the YPP and start serving advertisements.
