Has anyone suggested Youtube not feature videos until after Advertisements have been reviewed? DorkVader 4/12/12 8:34 PM
I just recently got Advertisements on my personal Youtube account. I'm trying to maximize revenue off of it. But I've run into one major problem. While the video is being reviewed for Advertisements numerous people view the video. It's cost me any place from 50-500 views or more. Is there anyway around this?

To try and prevent it on my most recent upload I've made the video private until the advertisements get approved and start to run ads on it.

How ever why doesn't youtube allow a feature in which the video wont be public or able to be viewed until the review of advertisements is complete.

If you become a partner then you can schedule videos to be published at a specific time/date, however until then you'll need to upload as private or unlisted until the ads are approved, if you want to maximize revenue.

Although, yes, that feature would be pretty neat.

Dork - They actually used to do this! I would always upload my videos and keep them set to 'private'. Then I would apply for monetization. Once they got ads on them, they'd automatically go public!
 Sometime a couple months ago it stopped working this way, and all vids would stay private until I manually changed them. I guess it came with the new design (another 'upgrade'?)
 I guess in the meantime, it's best to just set it to private until you see ads, then manually change it to public.
