Mike - since there isn't any issue with our own videos, does that mean we just wait still? Our video monetized was October 20th or so, and everything since then - 25 or more videos - haven't been reviewed. Some of them (like Halloween videos) are pretty much played out, at least for this year. We have about 150+ videos monetized and no strikes.

Thanks -

Denise

I would understand days/weeks..but a month + and still no ads?
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? aspergianstar2009 12/1/11 4:35 AM
There is something wrong with the system.  I have had a decent amount of views.  I am not a big partner by any stretch of the imagination.  But I have noticed even a video with 40 000 views has no adds.  Now this has to be a problem in google.  I also have noticed that insight has merged with analytic s   This to me means there has been a big change in the system.

I used to get not much for a few pounds an hour and now its 70p an hour for the same adds.  What the hell is going on.  When there are people at the top like RWJ that make millions and they are laughing and people like me are struggling just to make a few pounds from a video.  

Something is definatly up as the adverts are getting less on all my videos and yet some videos that have not even been getting views for weeks suddenly get adverts.  Yet there are video that I have 40 000 views on over the last few weeks that have no adverts.  What is going on???
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? NextGenRumors 12/1/11 9:18 AM
I too do not understand what is going on. My channel was recently invited to display adsense and my videos still do not show ads after a few days. I have another channel linked to the same adsense account and it does show ads. However, I do not believe that is causing the issue. 

I'm curious as to why this is happening because I have submitted a few videos this month and they are not getting ads displayed on them. I am not using anything that has a copyright either.

If anyone has any tips, let me know. I already unmonetized and then remonetized my videos and still a no-go. 
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? lanuwame 12/1/11 12:21 PM
One of my videos was accepted for adsense ads last week but for some reason, it looks like an ad is about appear, then nothing!   My other accepted videos have been working fine and show ads, but for some reason this one video doesn't.  Each time it looks like an ad is about to appear...then disappears before displaying.  I don't get it.  What would cause this?
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? LessThan3Dubstep 12/2/11 11:31 PM
I sent in a video for monetization probably 12 hours ago and it hasn't been rejected, nor have I gotten an email asking for more information, but there's still no ads?  I don't know if this is common, as I've only been able to monetize for maybe a month now, but usually for me it's within 30 minutes max (I don't have my ads turned off, and I don't have an ad blocker).

Video in question is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YPxMc4ZTGqA

Thanks!
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? MrHeIIs 12/3/11 12:36 PM
Also having the same problem, I understand there is a queue BUT explain how certain videos have been denied for approval yet other videos that I have submitted BEFORE the denied ones have been approved but no ads are showing on them?


Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? RoccosHouse 12/3/11 2:16 PM
I know whats wrong...none of you are shanedawson, sxephil or RWJ. Sorry, unless your on the front page your nobody on Youtube and thats exactly how your treated.


Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? MrHeIIs 12/3/11 2:55 PM
@ RoccoI know what you mean, high ranking partners don't seem to have problems and I do understand to an extent they would get preference over the smaller people but it still kinda sucks that we have been waiting 1 month+ for some of our videos to start having ads showing
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? MrHeIIs 12/3/11 10:02 PM
Another thing I noticed was one of my glitch tutorial videos was rejected for monetize yet a major YouTube glitching Partner channel that uploaded the same video (it was ripped) were able to monetize their video.

P.S. They uploaded their video after me
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? SybsygenOfficial 12/4/11 1:43 PM
I have monetized 2 videos a week ago and I have no answer, no mail to give meore info adn NO ADS! I would like to put more videos asap and start to pormote my channel adn earn some money. However if I have to wait week/weeks for ading ads to every video i put I will never promote myself fast enough adn earn some decent money.

What's wrong with this? I thought that google and youtube are earning money from this too but as I can se they dont really care to put adds as soon as possible to make everyone happy.

I am very dissapointed since i got invite to partner programe i thought that this is serious offer and it doesn't work even close as it should.

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? LegoGuy 12/5/11 11:56 AM
Mike, before Thanksgiving I would upload a video, monetize it, wait a week, then have to request monetization using this form: http://www.google.com/support/youtube/bin/request.py?hl=en&contact_type=revenue_share.  Within a few hours, my video was monetized.  Now I follow the same process and get e-mails from YouTube Partner support like this:
 
"Thanks for checking on the status of your monetization request.  Please
note that we reserve the right to review any video submitted for
monetization against our eligibility criteria.  Some video reviews can
take longer than others, but we assure you that we will process your
request and will be in touch if we have questions about your content
and/or claim."
 
 
What happened after Thanksgiving?  My videos are all product reviews and fall within all guidelines for approval.
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? LegoGuy 12/6/11 12:55 PM
They need to expand auto approve for monetization.  It is obvious that YouTube monetization staffers are overwhelmed at this point.  I have two accounts - one has ads placed on the videos within minutes of upload.  On the other channel, it takes weeks to see ads.  Auto approve should be automatic if you do not any strikes on your account.  It is very frustrating to see thousands of views on my videos that are waiting for monetization review.
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? mytechnologyyy 12/7/11 8:01 AM
I'm still getting the same problem. Had it for about a week now :/
Any updates on this issue?

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? michalch98 12/8/11 5:24 PM
Please, please, please fix this. I have not earned once cent for over a month now after being starting this thing. I don't even care about my other channels, for my main one, I only want a couple of ads. That's it. I don't want about 315 ads, just like 10. I went from ten's of thousands of views per day, to less than 1,000 a day now. Nothing has been going on with my videos, and I'm going crazy because of this. What is wrong? Why can't it be way easier to earn revenue and have placed ads? It's so hard and frustrating, all of this. 
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? QueenNaturalBeauty 12/9/11 6:43 PM
I to have had the same problem. No videos monetized since Oct 25. I emailed and got them monetized a few days ago and was told the problem would be fixed but the videos posted since still arent monetized. Im frustrated to the point of saying forget adsense. I was up to making a few hundred a month, now only 1-2 cent per day. Super frustrating
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? MrHeIIs 12/9/11 9:41 PM
How is this marked as an answered question when it isn't answered?

Seriously Google/YouTube, your major channels ain't having issues with this it just seems like the smaller channels are the ones with an issue, good to see the small timers getting kicked down again


Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? Dan433 12/12/11 1:20 PM
Yeah I have noticed this issue I got my channel monetized and I submitted my videos for monetizing. They were accepted and its almost been 2 months and no ads. So awhile later I monetized another channel of mine and ad's appear on that. I decided to upload the same video on both channels and my first one was approved but no ads appeared and my second channel which has 2 subscribers and 7 lifetime views where my first one has 3k subs and 300k views got ads.

Why?
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? michalch98 12/12/11 8:07 PM
Seriously? I took my comment down, but looks like I need to repost. For the BEST ANSWER, please vote it down! It will remove the answer so this will still be pinned and unsolved. Because IT"S NOT! Also report this as a bug, it will get more attention. The more people, the better. I want this over with already! I WANT THIS FIXED MIKE AND ANYONE ELSE FROM YOUTUBE! PLEASE WORK ON THIS!!
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? thecherrydollface 12/13/11 11:06 PM
Same problem as everyone else! I have videos that are getting tons of views and no monitization approvals in sight. At this point, I think that YouTube made some sort of deal with adsense so that they still get views but don't have to shell out the dough. So annoyed!
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? Suspectscottish 12/15/11 4:17 PM
been waiting for 3 weeks now still not working, iv followed the troubleshooter 5 times on different days its no help.

can any one from youtube/google at least give us an update on whats wrong/happening?

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? LegoGuy 12/15/11 7:45 PM
I have videos turning a month old, no ads.  I have 40 videos with ads, 11 without.  Why won't they tell us what is happening?  The motivation to create new content is fading fast...
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? davidlory 12/16/11 7:24 AM
This has to be a bug, because other people are reporting no issues. The ads are running hit and miss with no explanation. It happened when they changed the formats on youtube. I think that was when the bug hit. I like a lot of the new stuff, but it jams up the works too for different accounts. I'm one of the lucky ones and I see I'm not being picked on because a lot of people are having the same issue.

I have 60 vids not running ads all uploaded after Oct 15th. If this answer helped you, then vote it down so that this issue doesn't get "answered" and they go to work on it.

If we are partners in good standing, we should not have to wait for ads to run. They should run while waiting review and if the review picks up anything then they should stop. But I know my vids have no copyright issues and I should not be treated as if they do.
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? thecherrydollface 12/16/11 4:10 PM
So now you can see what ads are under review... and funny enough they are not approved in chronological order. And my videos with low views get monotized right away, while my videos that have gotten a lot of views quickly are still "pending review." There has to be something more going on here. I really do think that they just don't want to pay. 4 out of the 6 videos I have posted in the last month are still waiting review. And the two that got monotized quickly only have 2000 views. This really sucks.
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? WashingtonLakes 12/16/11 9:06 PM
yes, same problem here. It's frustrating to have no ads show on my two newest videos at the point when they get maximum exposure. Each video has around 1,000 views. I know that's not a lot but it's discouraging to see them not serving ads during the initial burst of interest when they first get released.
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? michalch98 12/17/11 2:45 PM
Well, today I got something. Not what I expected though... After about a month of waiting, I got some action. My 2 latest videos got looked at by Youtube, NOT the ones that i submitted some time ago. Guess what? Lucky me, I got those 2 videos disabled for monetization, since the description didn't really want to make them approve it, I think. I am a gaming channel, but so what? I followed the guidelines, youtube support, other people's tips, and also followed what my friend told me to do. My friend who HAS gaming videos, who HAS ads, who is 30X SMALLER than me. In terms of subs, upload views, channel vies, etc. So I just wanted to post, that I guess YouTube is starting to check videos again, unfortunately for me, this didn't do SHIT. I guess I will further more, wait. Since I don't want to partake in this any longer, since I'll have to wait 'til a miracle happens with Machinima or something. Fucking superfantastic. Just awesome...
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? TheFarmShow 12/17/11 3:33 PM
michalch98 they more than likely didn't approve it because they consider gaming footage copyrighted don't they?  ridiculous if you ask me, but it is a case of it.


My ads are now under review but that means nothing! just says it as soon as you click monetize and fill out the forms! Im still waiting for any action on this!! And now im only making $0.2 a day! F&@*!!! get  your stuff together youtube, im gonna start uploading videos complaining about this, and posting them everywhere!

Guys try messaging youtubehelp @

They reply as far as i know but they get load s of messages so they might not reply for up to 2 weeks ( if they do at all )
altho it may be advisable.
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? TheSmokingAndroid 12/19/11 10:21 AM
Ok, what the heck! I post a video, i enable trueview ads, i double check to make sure the ad is playing...the ad works...

I check back a week later, only banner ad is showing not trueview.

I check to see if true view is enabled...yes it is...and no i don't have ad blocker software preventing my from seeing those ads as some people have mentioned.

My revenue drop's when my ad's are taken out..the worst part is there is no explanation from youtube.

Can someone from youtube please actually address this problem instead of telling us it "might" be a copyright issue when it clearly isn't if you actually check the video...which most of you don't before replying to these types of questions...

god im really getting furious with this!
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? davidlory 12/19/11 11:31 AM
Don't ask questions, because this is what you might get. I don't even know what they are talking about. I just follow whatever they tell me. I've never had anyone click my ads or myself. Oh well, the ads were annoying.

Hello,

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? MrHeIIs 12/20/11 9:38 PM

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? michalch98 12/24/11 6:09 PM
WHAT? HOW? How is a video game unboxing video copyrighted? This is my 3rd video disabled for monetization!! Not to mention the fact that some of my other videos are still awaiting ads. But now im disabling everything, this is unbelievable! THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO COPYRIGHT IN A VIDEO WITH MY VISUALS and MY VOICE! AHHHH!!! I hate Monetization! I need to be partnered with someone to get claims, not this bullcrap. None of my stuff is getting approved. To hell with this!
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? MrHeIIs 12/25/11 11:49 AM
@michalch98 I know what you mean bro, I've submitted stuff that I own full right to and/or are allowed to monetize (certain gaming footage) and yet I get denied
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? puppetgirl 12/25/11 7:24 PM
We have had only one video out of 12, with ads appear since Oct 8.  then a few days we got 3 emails saying 3 of our older video had revenue disabled, but we checked and all still had ads.  Then when we went to check our video's we noticed that the 11 video's that still did not have ads showed that we needed to apply again because the video's showed we had not applied for monetization when we had indeed.  So we have now reapplied on those 11 video's but of course nothing yet. Please yt address this. 
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? DJBRADYBIKES 12/26/11 4:07 AM
@furballfBLES i am having the same problem with my channel, its always 3 videos, today i have logged into my youtube account and half of my videos have been removed from monetisation, mostly videos with absolutely no copyright material in at all, its really winding me up!
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? matt3756 1/1/12 5:15 PM
Why when I monetize for pre roll ads (truview) I don't see them now? The first day I enabled tru view ads for most of my already approved monetized videos I noticed a huge increase in clicks, revenue, and traffic. Now about 4 days has passed and my earnings are much less per day, and I notice tru view ads are not being displayed on videos that have it enabled! ??
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? TyrrantGaming 1/2/12 11:27 AM
I have tried everything anyone has posted anywhere. I can't get the majority of my videos through the "Under review" stage, and the ones that were accepted wont show ads. Can anyone please help me?
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? LegoGuy 1/2/12 2:30 PM
michalch98 - I unbox and review LEGOs.  No music or video games, just LEGOs.  I also just had three videos denied monetization because I do not own all commercial rights.  Could not believe it.  My videos are me, a camera, and a table.  I unbox and review LEGOS on the table.  That is it.  Something is very wrong.  I have 40 of these types of videos currently monetized.  Now they are denying monetization to new videos.  Total madness.  My guess is they are reigning in monetization for non-partners, and this is the plan - deny monetization for no reason.       
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? matt3756 1/2/12 5:53 PM
I don't understand how Ray William Johnson gets approved for what he does. He basically steals other people's footage!!! I seriously doubt him and his "team" search for the original owner of every video and get written documentation for the rights to their footage.

I also see people playing like Minecraft on here that are partners and have ads... how do they have rights to the video game visuals? Google employee, please answer us this...

I submitted a monetization claim for a video with the SAME music that I've used in my past 30 + videos and copy and pasted my information about my rights to use the song, and this newest video got denied... and they don't even tell you why! So you are clueless as to what extra information they are looking for...
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? JohnnySZS 1/2/12 7:58 PM
@matt3756 In Minecraft's TOS, it states that people can do whatever they want with video footage. And any other game, the person is probably partnered with Machinima or TGN so they are allowed to monetize video game footage.

And for me, I am not in the monetization program (I don't think so, because I was never invited) nor am I a partner, but I have the option of TrueView Video Ads.  When I enable these, I can't watch my video and I am stuck on the YouTube buffering screen. I asked my friend to watch my video, and he had the same problem! I had to disable them him to watch my video. But I got comments on my video and they watched it while it was monetized! What's going on?

Can someone check?

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? matt3756 1/2/12 8:27 PM
Ok I guess I get the video game stuff, but for RWJ's content there is no way he seeks every viral video original uploader to ask permission to show their footage. Unless there is some loophole in the "viral video world" that allows people to just use other people's videos in their own and without the owners consent, then I don't see how he keeps getting approved. As far as my knowledge goes with legal stuff in video classes from school, he would have to ask the original uploader of the video for permissions.

And JohnnySZS the video on your channel did not load for me either...
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? Ichabod13 1/5/12 7:16 PM
all my trueview ads aren't showing anymore.  is this happening to anyone else ?  thanks :P
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? Thomas ccook 1/9/12 4:42 AM
Same problem here. My last 10 videos arent showing the ads even tho it says monetised.
 
This system isnt build in logical sense and its very flustrating to see google do not step in and put bit light in this situation.
 
Monetised=no adverts???
Check=no money??
Where this world coming to??
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? smith7391 1/11/12 6:43 AM

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? matt3756 1/11/12 9:02 AM

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? Mandalorian30 1/16/12 1:12 PM
Suddenly my videos are no longer displaying ads even though they are monetized. My AdSense has dropped to 0 earning sin the last few days because of this. There doesn't seem to be any reason or explanation for why this is happening. Can someone please help me figure this out? I depend on those payouts from AdSense for my hard work, and the fact that suddenly, without explanation, things seem to be broken is really hurting me. I need to get this resolved asap. Thanks for any help that can be offered!
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? RallohE 1/18/12 12:57 PM
Well I don't feel so singled out now ... since mid-November ... no videos are being reviewed. All the information is there, all the back up data was submitted and nothing happens. Still shows being reviewed. Sounds like this whole system is breaking down. I pretty much use the same software, same purchased royality free product ... but nothing. Seems to be a waste of time now to even apply each video for monetization. Not to mention email inquiries that got three videos reviewed ... now get no response.
Just can't figure why my video uploads are taking so long and others I know that do the same kind of videos are getting reviewed and approved within a week ... sometimes sooner. Length of video doesn't seem to be a factor either.
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? LegoGuy 1/18/12 1:22 PM
RallohE - Your comment "Sounds like this whole system is breaking down" seems accurate.  I believe they are overwhelmed at this point.  I have 41 videos posted since mid November awaiting monetization. These are all product reviews. No music, images, etc. Just me, a camera, a table, and a LEGO product. Sure wish I knew what is going on. Seems like it is "partneship or bust" at this point, because there is little money to be made posting videos that are not being monetized. Sure wish YTMIke would chime in. Take care everyone.
 
One other thing.  I have a second channel where videos are monetized within minutes of upload.  Nothing makes sense.   
 
 
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? RallohE 1/18/12 1:33 PM
LegoGuy ... now that second channel issue is perplexing ... same thing I'm seeing compared to my associates. Yeah it would be nice if YTmike would "splain" it to us ;-)
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? matt3756 1/19/12 4:08 PM
Wow today and yesterday are really bad days with adsense. anyone else?
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? Thomas ccook 1/20/12 4:45 AM
Here  still the same its ridicullos how much money I lost since 2012 with the same account, more content I making less money than before.
Someone steals our money, thats for sure.
Worst is that it is hard to prove as we dont hold any records.
 
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? RallohE 1/20/12 6:12 AM
Just watching six of the people I follow ... and I'm close friends with. Two had their videos showing ads within 3 hours of uploading their videos, one had ads showing after six hours. Three are still awaiting "review" after 1 day.
 
Meanwhile I'm out two months on one and nothing after that is showing reviewed.
 
So if you have "too many" inquiries to YouTube ... do you get put on a "do not fly" type YouTube list and go into the perpetual pending review category? Something isn't right ... or at the very least something is seriously broken down.
 
Is it time to pack up an go Vimeo.com to post my videos and just forget this whole mess on YouTube?
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? StandUpTomedian 1/22/12 10:51 AM
On 15th December, I was offered the option to monetize my 2nd YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/tjTAKEOVER

I took up this option; I got an e-mail from Adsense, clicked the link, and clicked to monetize 15 of the above videos (all except the Carl Donnelly and Chris Martin one)

This led me on 4th January to send an e-mail to YouTube support. They replied on 5th January asking for links to the videos in question, which I sent on the 6th. On the 10th, I got this reply: 

"Your video's were approved. 
For information on when ads are shown, please visit our Help Centre
article at
http://www.google.com/support/youtube/bin/answer.py?answer=117739"
When I go here: http://www.youtube.com/account_manage - advertisements are enabled. Why aren't adverts appearing on the videos?? I don't see after over 1 month, there are no advertson my 2nd channel, but I can upload a video on my 1st channel and there be adverts on it within 5minutes.
Many thanks for your help.Tom Mayhew.

Also, a friend of mine got offered Monetization within the past week, and he now has adverts on his videos - despite having 15 videos, with a grand total of just over 2000 views.

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? RealMCR12 1/25/12 12:09 PM
ok so it is now 1/25/2012 and my last video was successfully monetize on October 17 2011. UGHHHH I have been searching for a response and nothing i ahve tried uploaded my videos with different browsers..different computers..and nothing. Still dont work i have now been waiting for over 3 months and no legit response. I have over 300 other videos successfully monetize and thankfully those are still bringing revenue but i have close to 100 other videos right now that are "Under Review" NEED AN ANSWER:(
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? GamingPitbull 1/25/12 4:20 PM
What happened to the old system that worked guess its time for a rollback because this system fails.

What about the 3000 views I got before the video was reviewed and how are you going to calculate how many of those people would have clicked on the ads if the ads where there from the beginning?

Also some of the video's that already had ads on them for months have silently been disabled for no reason the button to put ads on is there again so its not like the video's had copyrighted content and the ads where disabled for that reason i could resubmit them if i liked so why was this done.

Is it all a big buggy mess right now and is it going to be fixed or is this just the end of the partnership channels??
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? EMTRailfan 1/27/12 6:41 AM
Yah, I have 2 videos still under monetization review.  1 was just finally processed last evening after a few weeks of sitting in the processing glitch.  BUT, the 2nd video has been processed and already out to my subscribers, other ppl. viewing from searches, etc. so they have been played out already when they would have made me the money, but Google still gets theirs from the side ads, etc.  Are these views retroed to our AdSense accounts, or is this just getting swept under the carpet in a hanky kind of way?
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? worldofapp 1/28/12 2:41 PM
Hi all,

Just a tip: If it's been months you should resubmit. I worked on a channel where they accepted us and then we had videos waiting for review for months, but my videos on my personal channel are processed for ads in minutes to a few days. Check out what your ads should look like on my channel at Http://www.youtube.com/worldofapp/ BTW your content also matters. Vlogs are published faster than animations because animations are more suspicious for example and require more vetting.
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? JeffLangeDVD 1/29/12 6:45 PM
We did try resubmitting. We also post new videos continuously.  It's been since October 21 since we've had our videos regularly monetized, and we do have maybe 150 videos monetized before that.  There is one video that I know has been monetized since then, with 60 or more waiting (some had the buttons go back to normal instead of saying "monetized", I haven't even tried re-monetizing all of them, since some had royalty free music and it's a pain to write in everything again).

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? RallohE 1/30/12 11:09 AM
Denise ... you are so right, collecting the relative informations and support documentation only to have to re-type it is a pain in the backside. You email support and they will send you a new unrelated link instead of addressing the problem.
 
It just seems like such a waste of time on the YouTuber's part. Every time I post a new video I create a document file listing all my back up data ... in case ... so I don't have to retype.
 
Guess I'll continue to send my "what's happening" email each week till they tell me to stop ... or maybe just give me a real answer.
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? AirYell3000 2/2/12 10:42 PM
Mike, what if we went through all the trouble shooting tips and still there are no ads. My account has ads enabled, my account is in good standing, I have not receieved and e-mail on any of my videos stating that I need to submit more information about why I own the rights to them, I do own the rights to my videos, my AdSense account is linked to YouTube (I even double checked the third party link bar), I did receive an e-mail from YouTube stating that my account was ready for monetization and I've accpeted the terms and conditions for monetizing videos. I had a few videos that showed ads immediatly, but now not only are my new ones not showing ads, but the old ones stopped showing ads. Please help.
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? RallohE 2/3/12 4:44 AM
Mike ... like just mentioned ... what's so hard about YouTube explaining what's happening instead of leaving loyal YouTube uploaders hanging out to dry?
 
There's obviously a serious problem with this whole monetization process ... just a simple explaination would help instead of directing people to links that give us the same canned answer that isn't even related to the actual problem many of us have expressed above.
 
We really are asking for help here.
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? RallohE 2/7/12 7:08 AM
I keep uploading videos ... and keep sending inquiries ... but none of my videos are being reviewed since November of last year. So much for any assistance from YouTube ... and after all they invited me to monetize my videos ... sure doesn't make much sense to me.
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? LegoGuy 2/7/12 11:50 AM
Same here, no videos monetized since mid November.  I now have over 50 videos without ads.  Inquiries to YouTube generate a generic response.  Are you out there Mike?  We **really** need an explanation.
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? LegoGuy 2/8/12 3:13 PM
Another generic response from YouTube after I inquired about my 50+ videos that are not monetized.  Below is the entire response.  I told them I own complete rights to all my videos, but that did not matter.  I must have five or six of these e-mails now.  Before mid November, I would get a "your video has been monetized "  e-mail. Things have sure changed.

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? 606media 2/8/12 11:31 PM
My videos have suddenly become stuck in review as well. Systemwide problem with monetization?
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? RealMCR12 2/8/12 11:40 PM
More and more people seem to be having this issue...in a way, i'm happy because maybe youtube will finally decide to fix it if we get enough people!!
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? genericHenle 2/9/12 12:08 AM
I have also just begun to realize that my videos are no longer going through the monetization process. I make simple game walkthroughs and guides which are all legal according to the publishers EULA. I first thought my gameplay videos were being put in "In review" limbo because they were just Gameplay. no voice or anything. I soon realized though that previous videos that were just gameplay went through the process fine. After coming back to make videos after going through of rough patch I realized that no new videos at all seem to pass "In review". This would be fine if I knew WHY. If I knew what was wrong with the video I would be perfectly fine fixing it. But this complete ignorance towards this problem is getting extremely frustrating.
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? ToadTheWetSprocket 2/9/12 4:02 AM
I am having the same problem.. I never have this issue, and my other channels get ads instantly.. but my main channel, refuses to remove from review mode.

I took ads off of a previously accepted video and it too is stuck on review mode. I uploaded a new video, review mode. Removed it then re-added.. Review mode lol

I took off another previously accepted, re-added.. review mode and it's been hours.......
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? finalhourr 2/9/12 6:16 AM

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? 606media 2/9/12 7:34 AM
Checking the major channels like Yogscast and etc, I noticed that no ads are showing on their new videos either. So it seems like it may be a YouTube wide problem right now.
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? 606media 2/9/12 7:40 AM
Doing a little more research, it seems to be pretty hit and miss and to which new subscription videos have ads and which don't.
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? quickshot101 2/9/12 7:46 AM
Same issue. I looked around at some major gaming channels and there videos within about the last 6 hours dont have ads either. something up. question is what?
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? ToadTheWetSprocket 2/9/12 8:16 AM
thanks for the info guys,...that makes me feel better..

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? clipyourcoupons 2/9/12 9:29 AM
I hope it's just a temp glitch.  I uploaded 2 videos together last night and 1 was monetized the other is still in review.  I uploaded another video this morning and it's still in review.  I have never had a problem getting approved.  I hope it's fixed soon.  I did check others that I am sub to and their last video made has no ads.  Lets keep this thread going...... It's like google flicked a switch last night
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? ChristiannaGarrett1 2/9/12 3:10 PM
I get instant ads on 2 of my accounts, but last night I submitted 2 videos, one to each channel,  went through the usual process and they are now stuck under review even though I have always had instant ads. All my own work etc.  My other (main) account has about 50 videos pending since last October. I don't bother filling in the form now at all.  Frustrating, is an understatement.
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? 606media 2/9/12 7:05 PM
Tried to re-monetize the videos again a few minutes ago and now after submitting they just kick back to the "not monetized" status...no "under review" or anything.

I give up for the time being, hopefully in a few days YT will have things sorted out.
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? ChristiannaGarrett1 2/9/12 7:14 PM
606media

Try again! My ads  have just gone on and I just posted a new one just now  and the ad took about 10 minutes to show, I think the system is jammed up;)
 
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? 606media 2/9/12 7:23 PM
^ Just tried again and no luck, they went straight back to "not monetized". I'll try again in a few hours and see if it works then.
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? crazybonkers 2/9/12 7:44 PM
I have the same issue as 606media, so I just copy paste :) Tried to re-monetize the videos again a few minutes ago and now after submitting they just kick back to the "not monetized" status...no "under review" or anything.
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? ChristiannaGarrett1 2/9/12 8:00 PM
I wouldn't keep re-trying I think it sets you back each time. Just leave it and wait. I thik they are just receing a huge volume maybe.
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? RealMCR12 2/9/12 8:52 PM
After over 3 months month, Youtube finally decided to listened to my cries for help. I just went over like 80 of my videos to monetize my videos and they all got accepted instantly. One neat thing that I noticed is that any of my videos that had background music in it, didn't get accepted. It got denied automatically. I think this is what google was working on and maybe other things. Thank you Google/Youtube.
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? RallohE 2/10/12 7:24 AM
I'd like to think they were working on it but my gut feel is they are not working on it and just shelving the review process for some reason. Maybe that reason is they're overloaded ... maybe it's that they are understaffed ... whatever the reason it would be good to answer the question of what's going on even if it was a general post somewhere. Basically they are doing nothing visible for months and months. 
 
It's very frustrating to get no response from them ... or even the OP of this string ... and if you do get an email response it's a canned answer to a link that has no bearing on the problem.
 
Of course I'm basically venting here ... because even posting this feels like a waste of time other than to just vent.
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? lololicious69 2/10/12 9:14 AM
Well I was having that problem...now when I submit the video for rev share it goes into review, then it goes back to not monetized after I refresh the page! I have resubmitted like 50 times and it keeps doing the same thing...
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? ChromeMagTV 2/10/12 2:23 PM
Having the exact same problem! when i try to monetize it the second i refresh the page it goes straight back to 'Not Monetized'. If anyone finds out whats going on please let me know.

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? ChristiannaGarrett1 2/10/12 4:08 PM
Hi!  After waiting 5 months on one account for my  videos to be reviewed,  and a disabling of my other 2 accounts that have instant ads, 2 nights ago, it finally righted itself last night!  They may be working in alphabetical order. I am G so quite near the top of the alphabet. I've worked back office and it's always done this way. Just a thought. Good Luck!
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? 606media 2/10/12 4:40 PM
I'm thinking they may have disabled monetization temporarily while they work through the backlog of videos they already have. Or, it could just be YouTube glitching out again.
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? somethingsquad 2/10/12 5:36 PM
@606media that would make sense, but wouldn't they just be setting themselves up for another backlog when everyone who is currently having trouble re-submits at the same time when they re-enable it?
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? ChromeMagTV 2/11/12 9:43 AM
Still unable to monetize, this is becoming a joke. Has this ever happened before? 
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? RallohE 2/12/12 1:57 AM
Still no joy nor productive answers from YouTube as to why they are not reviewing a vast majority of videos. Still see videos posted by others that get approved and are showing ads within hours of posting though. Wonder what the magic criteria is for being worthy of such approval?
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? RallohE 2/15/12 4:08 PM
I just got this and replied to it today. I'm not sure what is being said. But it definitely doesn't feel very friendly. I guess I'll be looking at forgetting this whole monetization program. Just making my videos for my own enjoyment and maybe posting else where. This is too frustrating to make sure all the I's are dotted and the T's are crossed just to be sort of threadened for continuing to ask for assistance.
 
I hope the rest of you have better luck than I've had ... but I've definitely had enough.
 
Last two exchanges posted below for you amusement ...
 
So Felipe
You are saying that on a whim if you don't like my video ... even if it's perfectly within your guidelines and using only original or purchased legitimate royality free material and I have proof of ownership ... you might remove my video anyway? Really?
So what is the benefit to me monetizing my videos ... a program to which you kind folks offered to me? I'm confused. What am I doing wrong?
Regards ... Michael

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? utahactor 2/15/12 10:04 PM
I have UNLISTED ALL of my videos that are not being monetized for whatever reason.

I am NOT uploading anymore videos.

YouTube must MONETIZED all of my videos that I own ALL content to and/or have the rights to use material in.

I am DONE with YouTube unless they monetize the videos I have already submitted and are "Under Review."

AT A CERTAIN POINT IN THE NEAR FUTURE, I will start deleting my monetized videos until none are left.  Then I will delete my channel.  This is NOT WORTH the pennies YouTube is tossing my way.  Once I was invited to monetize videos, I worked them and saw views and earnings going almost straight up in a very short amount of time.  That encouraged me to start planning better subject matter and videos, but now that has all changed.  I don't like to be screwed with, and once I walk away, I don't ever look back.
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? RallohE 2/16/12 12:38 AM
I've been reading an article on how YouTube and some others are directing their efforts more toward mainline content like networks and professionally produced video content these days.
 
This is just me speculating, but it would seem the amateur videographer is getting pushed aside. If that's what's happening it would be a shame to think they would abandown that which made them what they are. Wouldn't be the first company to do such ... but it surely would be a shame.
 
Sure does seem odd that all this has started for so many folks around the November time frame ..
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? EricPreslik 2/23/12 5:20 AM

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? BookProX 2/25/12 1:22 PM
I also had some videos that didn't get ads and I was really confused about why I didn't approved for revenue sharing on those videos. I realized that after three days or a week for not being approved, there must be something I overlooked in the ownership details form. When I looked at my records, I noticed that when I submit my revenue sharing statement to a video, the first line in the ownership statement must be assertive and very specific. Another thing that I missed was details about Links to the song. In fact the information I had was "Links to the song: YouTube"… link to the song must be also specific. 
Since then, I organized a folder where I keep all the information submitted to revenue sharing of each and every video and this has helped me a lot to keep track of my work too.

I also got this helpful link from YouTube:

This is the new format I use for revenue sharing on my videos:
I created this video and I own all rights to all content in the video ID: <video ID>.
Programs used and legal terms:

Soundtrack: all
Artist: first/last (a.k.a. <channel name> on YouTube)
Name of track: <name> (year)
Genre: <type>
Label: Unsigned
Arrangement: 15 software instruments
Software: Logic Express 9
Link to the song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=<video ID>
License terms: Standard YouTube
The rights owner’s contact information: <mail acc>@gmail.com
Name (first/last): <name> 

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? RallohE 2/25/12 2:38 PM
Well actually I have a very similar format that I specifically laid out all that information as well ... but no videos since November are getting reviewed. I document what is used, where I obtained it and the ownership info. I even provide the invoicing of purchased material as proof of ownership and still ... they are just not getting reviewed ... period.
 
I'm currently traveling in China but as soon as I get from behind this censor wall that blocks YouTube I fully intend to leave the monetization program. The hassles, the "threats implied" by YouTube employees ... see Felipe's response above ... are just not worth my time or further concerns.
 
I just like making the videos and if they are not reviewed early in their life cycle the small rewards of the Monetization program are just not worth the hassles associated with it.
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? RallohE 2/25/12 5:26 PM
Again ... read his response.
Yes ... I've been asked last year for copies showing that the listed sources of royality free product was actually purchased by myself. Which I've done. Each posted video gets a list of products used, the specific item used ... it's fully referenced. If you'll read back through some of these posts it's not just me but as of Nov 2011 videos posted DO NOT get reviewed.
 
And yes I think that Felipe's response below was saying just what it said, if we don't monetize it ... we might just remove it. Not if it's in violation of copyrights we'll remove it ... just "hey it's our choice and we could remove it". Since I've asked him or someone at that email address for updates once a week, I'm pretty sure it's a way of saying "don't continue to ask or we'll remove it. Like I said at this point I really don't care. I've created videos. I've used only royality free product or product I've fully created being very careful not to cross over anyone's copyrighted material. I've documented what I've used. I've made sure to prove I owned my material or had permission to use it. When you inquire, all you get are links that 9 times out of 10 are not related to the inquiry. So when I got this response ... while it can be argued that I'm a bit overly sensitive at this point ... I basically give up. It's their house, their rules ... I just wish there was a consistency to them. :

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? Alex Intchovski 2/26/12 12:28 PM
Hello everyone, 

I am not a major partner but have been one for quite some months now and have constantly made a decent amount of money. As of the last two days there have been $0.00 earnings for both days on my adsense, and I do not see ads on my channel or videos. Occasionally I'll hit a video with ads on the sides. But I'm getting freaked out, no revenue is accumulating. I've never had any actual issues aside from a past infraction of a video being filmed in public and having light music that was hardly noticeable in the background. Other videos recently, my last two, had like 8-9 seconds of music in the opening but because I knew that I used edit to trim that off. I doubt that is the issue to be honest, but I'm kind of stressed out over it. Please let me know who I contact to make the issue become resolved. A direct phone number would be best.
here is a screenshot of my current account and it says it's in good standing and whatnot and i recently managed to hook up my bank account to adsense, but again that's irrelevant. My monetization tab or whatever, is still green and I am still a partner but it seems I can't submit anything for revenue sharing or have ads appear on old videos, some old ads appear on the sides, but when i try to make them video ads it doesn't work anymore. I don't know what's wrong, please help with something other than directing me to the google adsense forum. Experienced users or employees please help.


Please help I need the money to pay for college books and AP classes this year. I don't want to quit youtube but it's made me reconsider abandoning all my friends, contacts, fans, etc. I don't want to adhere to something so ridiculous as that. It's a part of my life now and I really want a youtube/google employee to help me deal with this as soon as possible.

YES I HAVE BEEN AND STILL AM A FULL PARTNER! It just started about five days ago that my ads stopped being placed. AND NO, I have NOT received any emails from google or youtube as to any reason why.

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? RallohE 2/26/12 3:06 PM
Last comment on any of this BookProX ... and I'll try to make is very simple. IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH WITH YOUTUBE'S TERMS OF SERVICE ... that is very clear. I am tickled to death that you have having no issues. However many of us while closely adhering to those very same guidelines including documentation of ownership (even as you yourself outlined) are getting no response or reviews completed or posted to videos since Nov 2011. Something has changed to those of us that have posted here. ALL WE WANTED was a simple explaination of what has changed, what has happened ... just something. Again I am very glad you are not experiencing this same issue ... I hope it continues for you.
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? MMCB Best Music 2/27/12 6:28 AM
OH NO HE JUST I'I'.  One of America's top song writers got pissed over this and wrote a hilarious sarcastic song about the situation.  It says his name lots of times but he's singing about how it's obviously stolen from Britney Spears.  OMG too funny.  The name is "Youtube Monetize Button Missing Disabled Broke Problem Sucks Stuck Under Review Monetization" weird song title, great song.  Search that or just use the link below.  Apparently it takes customer support long enough that he can conceive a song, record all the parts and even make a video to it.

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? BookProX 2/28/12 5:14 PM
Hi Guys,
I heard that is taking YouTube a lot of time for to migrate over a billion or so, of old channels to the new ones. My channel has some service disruption too, in Monetization and Analytics… Probably is going to take some time to see all the bells and whistles running again with flying colors, as many of diehard youtubers still don't want to migrate to the new design.

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? HIoW 3/9/12 4:59 PM
I've had a video that was uploaded on March 5 stuck on "under review" ever since. Tried re-submitting today with no effect yet. I tried submitting another, older upload and it too is taking much longer than usual under review (almost an hour so far). Usually I've found them approved within 30 minutes.

There seems to be a systemic problem with monetization over the last few days, based on other reports I'm reading on here.

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? HIoW 3/10/12 9:49 AM
Update: The older video was approved overnight, but the video that was uploaded on March 5, and has now been submitted for the second time, is still stuck "under review."

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? PhotographersOnUTube 3/26/12 8:29 AM
My ads are running BUT not the ones I want. It's running banner ad when the system says it's playing standard in stream ad or true view in stream ad. Something is not right.


I don't know what's going on since I became a partner. On March 22nd I became a YouTube partner and right away my revenue dropped. My Page CTR has been dropping since then everyday. I used to be like 9 or 10% but now it's down to 4 and 5%. My page views are the same but my clicks have dropped like 50% I am basically making less money now since becoming the partner.

Here is the thing I found. All my videos are monetized. It even says, monetized but in so many of my videos where it's monetized for "true view in stream" and "standard in stream" ads, it's not playing any commercial. It's only showing the banner ad which is the video inlay or something. That explains the dramatic drop in click. Before I didn't even have standard in stream ad option so I thought once I put those on my videos, my revenue would increase even more as no one would be able to skip the ad but instead it dropped the revenue.

I was wondering if this has anything to do with YouTube making changes or I have some how screwed up things? I rather give up my partnership if I have to settle for half the revenue than before.

I have been having trouble with monetizing video's.

Some video's monetize right away! Others stay in review. And some even get disabled even though it's the same type of content that all my other video's are of!!! And they have it enabled!!!

Does YouTube have a bunch of interns that just graduated some sort of legal degree monitoring the monetization requests?  Because it sure seems like a lot of the disabled video's are perfectly fine when it comes to copyright issues!

Get your things together youtube! maybe some more training for those in that department might be necessary.

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? The Variety Channel 4/4/12 3:59 PM
2 of my videos listed below have mysteriously been demonetized recently. I
have no idea why. There is no monetization logo next to them either. When
I edit to check, the advertising options features are all active and checked off.
This is very strange. As when I posted the videos all content was created by myself and in public domain. Furthermore, I have not received any notifications from youtube in reference to the videos.
I am assuming this is a bug or a glitch but it still has not been fixed. Can someone help me with this please?

Thank you.

I have a question.
Well, this is my youtube account: www.youtube.com/user/ONTFilms
as you can see my monitisation is still in use because i used my brothers adsense account and i used his gmail and associated it with monitisation. but my gmail account linked to my youutbe account (which is in my name) has a disabled adsense on it.
but now im wondering if i can still be partnered if my linked google account is disabled but i still have a monitisation account active?
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? DontLikeYoutubePROBLEMS 4/13/12 12:31 AM
Hello, I received mail from yt that i can earn money, so i configured adsense and yt account but in Monetisation options IN ADVERTISING OPTIONS i don't have ENABLE OVERLAY in-video ads - and this is why ads don't show on my videos even videos are good for youtube to revenue.

This is example video from my channel - it was added to monetise but i have only option to Enable TrueView in-stream ads http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eDpTFx77lbI

My colleague have in this place also Enable TrueView in-stream ads and enable overlay in-video ads - please tell me WHY i don't have both options

Please help me Mike:)

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? Jaleetah 4/16/12 7:43 AM
A couple of days in a row; ads were showing in my youtube video's. After those couple of days, they suddenly weren't there anymore. I didn't change anything in my account nor did I change anything in my adsense acount. I hate the fact that I can't contact adsense properly by phone or e-mail, and neither can I contact youtube that way. What can I do to fix this? This is really annoying!
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? Jaleetah 4/16/12 7:55 AM
I have the exact same problem. video's showed up in my video's for a couple of days and then just were gone. youtube green, adsense ok.... nobody replyin here on the forum nor on the adsense forum.

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? Sugar&Spice 4/24/12 11:08 AM
Guess I'm not the only one suffering from this problem. My video's before the ones I've uploaded now, had no problem getting easily submitted in less then 2 mins. Now anything I upload, takes days on end to be submitted. Then when I do log back onto my account, I sometimes recieve an email that it's been disabled, when I clearly own the video. I wouldn't be uploading something I don't own the rights to, and then trying monetize it. I have a video right now, that's only 10secs long, yet it's taking FOREVER to be reviewed. It's only 2 pictures. What type of crap is that? Do you have to be a Shane, or Justine, just to get some service around here?? It's quite ridiculous! >:/
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? Sugar&Spice 4/24/12 11:11 AM
Here's the video I'm refering too:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aioBcfLhhck

It's a minor, 10 second video, yet it's STILL under review. Are there even any people coming to this forum?? :/
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? heskicks 4/24/12 3:32 PM
i am having the exact same problem.  i post shoe review videos of kicks that i purchase, and i have had 2 out of 51 videos removed from ad sharing for no reason.  i filled out the form to dispute it, but no word back.  It is very frustrating because if i am doing something wrong when submitting for monetization, i would like to know.  i dont think i am doing anything wrong however, i have 2 channels with over 20k subscribers combined, so its not like i dont know the rules!  very annoying not to get any help on this.
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? ONTFilms 4/25/12 4:28 AM
OMG same with me, i had posted a video with a non copyrighted video, with music that the owner allowed me to use, with actual statements by the owner, and my video gets disabled for revenue sharing, even videos with only my clips of me running and stuff, no music, and it still gets disabled for revenue sharing
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? kanthony515 4/26/12 1:17 PM
Is YouTube ever going to fix this problem? My account is fully enabled for revenue sharing, my google adsense account is active and all set up with YouTube, the majority of all my videos are enabled for monetization, all of them say "monetized" yet there are no ads being shown? This has been going on for 2 weeks, come on YouTube!
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? MinistryOfGeeks 4/28/12 1:14 PM
Same with me! this has been going on since i got monetised!
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? MinistryOfGeeks 4/28/12 1:16 PM
YTMike, There have been no ads showing on my videos since i got monetised! most of my videos have been monetised, and show a green dollar sign with white text, and it says "Monetized", but i've never had an ad show on any of my videos yet!
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? DontLikeProblemsofYoutube 5/2/12 4:37 PM
Hi,
I would like to submit at least two problems with the theme youtube / adsense, which plagued me for 2 months and despite many requests from my side and others have not been resolved.

Case No. 1
When an account gets the first warning about copyright infringement, none of the films added later do not pass the approval process for monetization. This situation has repeated itself a few people that I know - for the person who even accidentally violate the copyright, and wants to make money on youtube / adsense YouTube account is then disposed of. PLEASE RESOLVE IT - I HAD 2 VERY GOOD ACCOUNTS with many millions of views and now i can't earn on them.

Case number 2
At the time when I received a message from YouTube that my account allows you to generate revenue immediately joined them with my adsense account - all I did well - pasted mail from my adsense account for income generation settings in your account and my youtube videos to be valid and have been admitted to the process monetization. A day later, on my films THERE WAS NO LONGER ADVERTISING, although each of my films have a green U.S. dollars denoting conformity with the rules and admission to monetize! What is more email from adsense revenue generating options on youtube just disappeared - please tell me WHY!

At first I thought that this only applies to new accounts, youtube, but two days ago I checked a long-forgotten account to which this process is repeated.

Please, any response from the administrators of this board or someone who knows why these problems occur between 2 months and nobody is going to solve them. During those two months I lost by these problems about 1 000 euro, which for student is a considerable amount.

I would like to point out that the problems described by me are not my invention and only personal trouble. Lots of people complain about the same, and youtube at the moment ignore us.

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? kanthony515 5/2/12 4:58 PM
This is very annoying! It's been a month now with no ads and I've done everything possible for a fix! Why is YouTube not doing a damn thing to help us, it just goes to show they don't care for their users anymore.
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? jevchance 5/4/12 11:44 AM
I have videos that have been monetized for 9 months now and still aren't showing ads.

The system is broken.

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? Aliblogger 5/4/12 1:19 PM
i Have Changed the Adsense A/c on youtube but ads not showing now. in monetization section it show old publisher ID but when i click CHange Adsense> it shows new Publisher ID.
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? klawdek 5/5/12 11:35 AM
They started showing ads on my videos right away.  But when I signed up to monetize they took away all data on monetization in analytics.  So I have no way of knowing if I am getting any revenue from the ads or if the ads are just annoying people.

I am going to turn off monetization for all my videos in the next few days.  I am beginning to wonder if YouTube monetization is the way to go at all.  I think I would be better off at a real website and then go with affiliate programs.

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? mpickle 5/5/12 5:48 PM
My videos have always been enabled for monetization almost instantly, but my most recent one is stuck at "Under Review".  Is there something I can do?  Will re-uploading help?
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? MangaReaderZ 5/7/12 1:22 PM

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? maltonge 5/13/12 12:01 AM
I don't receive ads at all on youtube no matter what channel i visit i can not see ads it would help big time if someone could check it for me. Im thinking that its because of the country i reside in which is UAE Dubai although i did use to see ads. my channel is http://www.youtube.com/maltonge
Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? Sabrewolf1377 5/16/12 1:12 PM
Mike,

I have submitted a video for monetization, and it's still in the "under review" status. Also, two of my previous videos that were monetized, are no longer monetized. What is going on here? How long will this take? Is there a glitch? I need some answers.

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? Jackandmattshow 5/19/12 1:08 PM
I have been waiting 3 MONTHS for adverts to appear on my videos. They have been reviewed and OK'd - but still nothing! How long will it be youtube? You said you would get back to me on the issue. But that was 2 MONTHS ago. I sent you another email - and nothing!

So I just got my an adsense account approved for my youtube channel (second attempt now that I have more content) My issue now is my monetization tab was disabled not because I did anything wrong but because I didn't yet have an approved adsense account and insufficient content. So mike, can you or someone eles at youtube re enable my Monetization tab because I'd really like to be able to use it. Thanks for your time. MsDesignDiva

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? Reenie2012 5/26/12 7:00 AM
Hi Mike,  Maybe you can help me out.  I uploaded a video (Wild Man Workout) to may account last week with music that I had the rights to, but YT would not allow it for monetization.  So...I decided to upload the video AGAIN, but this time without any music or any other material that may be questionable.  It was monetized the first day, and now I see that the monetization was removed.

I havent even received any kind of message or info as to why they took the monetization off this video.  Can you please tell me why they did it and why they do this without any explanation whatsoever?  Are they confusing it with the first video that had music, without looking to see if this one has been changed?

Thanks for any assistance or insight you may provide!  Reenie

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? aTroubledArtist 6/12/12 10:18 AM
This needs thread re-iterating.

Youtube where is your response.

Some weeks ago, my monetisation dispute forms were handled with great diligence and everything went smoothly. As of last month, my response to monetisation dispute form entries with ALL THE CONFIRMATION YOU NEED that I have rights to make money from my work, has reduced to ZERO.

As a matter of fact, every since "Karin" has been merrily cutting and pasting insulting nonsensical reasons why my videos are not suitable for monetisation at me.. (Videos in the entirely same vein as those that other youtube members of the revenue share team were very happy to monetise in the not-too-distant-past.) I have had not a single video approved for monetisation that required the use of the dispute process.

Regardless of the fact that you simply sit on the "right to not monetise", this does not make it fair, or right that you take away such priveleges from the very people that made Youtube what it is today; the uploaders ourselves.

I am truly disgusted.

Re: Why aren't ads showing on your video? PhotographersOnUTube 6/12/12 10:59 AM
All my videos are monitized. Every video has TruView ad meaning those skipable commercials but ads are not running on most of the video. In some videos there isn't even an overlay and in some the overlay is a blank banner. Point is.. it should not be any kind of overlay as I selected TruView with overlay. So the overlay should only work when my videos are embedded on other sites where skippable commercials don't run.

I just don't get it. I went from making 40 bucks a day to 15 bucks a day because ads are not running and all these problems started after I became a partner. I never had issues when I wasn't a partner and so far YouTube hasn't replied to any of the questions because they never updated my e-mail address. So according to their record, I'm not even a partner lol.

If ads are not running then YouTube is not making money either. They should look into this. Myself AND YouTube, both are losing money. They can afford it... I can't.
