YouTube Partner Program (YPP) New Rule

This post is a little rant as well as a plea for help! As you’ve noticed from the heading, it’s all about the new YouTube Partner Program (YPP) rules. I mentioned it in a previous post not all that long ago.

If you’re a YouTuber, you’re probably received notification of their YouTube Partner Program (YPP) modification. These new rules will be preventing who knows how many hundreds of thousands of YouTubers from monetising their videos. This will take place mid-February!

YouTube Partner Program (YPP) Requirements

YouTube Partner ProgramWhat is now required to monetise your videos? According to their site; “Starting today, we’re changing the eligibility requirement for monetization to 4,000 hours of watchtime within the past 12 months and 1,000 subscribers.?” Too bad they don’t use Grammarly because there’s an error in that statement.  :cool:

Why are they doing this? Well, it’s because they’re hoping to, “prevent bad actors from harming the inspiring and original creators around the world who make their living on YouTube.”

It seems they’re not at all worried about all the good people who are currently on YouTube earning a little supplementary income. Nope, according to them, “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.” In other words, the little guys have to suffer, once again!

Which seems entirely unfair to me because some of the channels I’ve noticed, who have the subscribers and the views, are blatantly violating some of their rules anyway, copyright rules being just one of the infringements I’ve seen.

You Subscribe To Mine I’ll Return The Favour

So, we have to February the 20th 2018 to meet the deadline. Which brings me to the purpose of this post. I’m asking anyone who has the time, to subscribe to my YouTube channel!

There are many reasons to subscribe too. My videos are all in HD! They’re entertaining and cover many topics, from reviews to jokes. There are also a few ‘How To” videos covering varied topics from WordPress to fixing a leaking toilet.

I know there are a lot of others in the same boat and I feel we could all help each other out. So, I am more than happy to subscribe to anyone who has subscribed to my channel. Hopefully, if we all get involved, we can all build up our YouTube subscriptions.

Here’s my latest video on the subject. It’s all about the New YouTube Rules and my feeling about it.


I had initially posted this on the Warrior Forum, but they deleted it because of “Self-promotion!” Oh well, their loss.

Blogging For Money Revisited

I reckon it’s time for a Blogging For Money Revisited post. When I first started this blog, it was more about blogging for money. It has heaps of posts all about blogging for money. I’ve even devoted a page to it called Make Money Online. There was also a time when I used to make a little money with Google Adsense, but then I went and got to be Too Sexy For Google.

That didn’t bother me because I was making way more money as a Lottery Affiliate with my two favourite lottery sites, Buy Online Lotto Tickets and Get Online Lottery. Unfortunately, I’m still trying to crack the Ez eSports Betting market.

One thing I have discovered is that there are other ways of making money online other than blogging. YouTube for example! I even started another category on one of my other blogs called YouTube Tips. Why on that blog and not on this one? I’m so glad you asked.  :drunk_tb: Read on McDuff!

Blogging For Money Revisited Why?

blogging for money revisited

Created by The Creator which I absolutely love.

I’ve decided that I’m going to give Adsense another go and because I can’t have Adsense on this blog I’m concentrating on my other blogs. Another reason for the blogging for money revisited tagline. This means I’m going to have to update them a lot more. This blog is still my most favourite blog, getting more visits than all the other ones combined. That being the case it makes perfect sense to use it to promote my other blogs.

Also, because my Friday Funnies posts are bringing the most significant chunk of traffic, I thought it would be a good idea to do the same thing for one of the other Adsense ready blogs. And so Heaps Of Jokes was born. Going to try and not piss off Google this time though. :tongue_laugh_ee:

Consolidating Web Hosting

In an effort to increase the profitability of my blogging online attempt I’m continuing to consolidate my web hosting. This month I will be moving another three sites over to my Inmotion hosting account.

As for Youtube, my biggest hurdle is trying to find the right subject matter for my videos. Of my recent videos the How To Cut Curves In Laminate Floorboards is doing quite well. I reckon my Ryobi Brushless Lawnmower Review will do quite well. I’m hoping that as time goes by more of my videos will be as popular as my motorbike stunts video which to date has generated nearly $900.

Although I’ve done a lot of posts that may help newbie bloggers, none of them is as comprehensive as the one by Paul Aroloye entitled How To Start A Successful Blog.

My Top Ten YouTube Videos

I first started my YouTube video career way back in March of 2008! I put that particular video together as a paid post I did for buy.com. It would have to be one of my worst ever YouTube videos getting only 73 views. I haven’t even bothered to monetise that video because I’m a teeny weeny bit embarrassed about it.

Since then I have produced 71 videos which have been viewed over 320,000 times earning me over $650! I’ve also got 280 subscribers which is pretty cool I think.

All that aside I thought I would share with you my top ten YouTube videos.

top ten youtube videosObviously the most profitable and most popular video is the Freestyle motorbike one. Candy Crush 147 is definitely second but it’s popularity has died down sum which is probably why it’s not earning as much money, While my split second photos video is gaining in popularity it’s earning potential just isn’t up to scratch.

If you were to compare the Split second video to the ‘How to fix toilet’ video, which is a lot older and has less views, the toilet one has earned a lot more money. Does this mean that viewers who like ‘How To” videos are more likely to click on an ad? if you check my other ‘How To’ videos you’ll notice they’re all pretty good earners.

Problem with that is those ‘How To’ videos are a lot harder to produce because you really need to  know the subject matter before producing a video. Even so they should be a part of your top 10 YouTube videos list.

Even though my Split Second Photo video, which has quite a few views, isn’t performing so well I’ve decided to produce another video along similar lines. This time though it’s not going to be about hot sports women, just in case that’s keeping some advertisers away. Nope, this time it’s all about….

35 Perfectly Timed Photos In Sport

You can help the video along it’s merry way by giving it a thumbs up  :thumbup_tb: and sharing it with you’re friends. I’m happy to return the favour if you have a video you would like promoted. As long as it’s nothing offensive  :naughty:

So, how are your videos going? Do you have a top ten YouTube videos list?

Using YouTube To Leverage Traffic To Your Site

I love creating YouTube videos. It’s true that wasn’t always the case. The thought of putting a video online used to terrify me. Now, I’m always thinking of new videos to put online.

Last December, man I can’t believe it was that long ago, I wrote a post on How To Make Money With YouTube! Since writing that post I have continued to upload videos and they are actually making me money. Not heaps of money, but then it’s a work in progress.

Yesterday I uploaded my latest YouTube video which you can watch below. I have to be completely honest though. The idea for the video was not my own. The idea came from one of Marc Sylvester’s, the creator of The Logo Creator, tutorials.

Using my Camtasia for Mac, The Logo Creator, Google search and my Aussie wit I put together the first of what I hoped to be a series of videos together. One that I’m hoping will not only make me heaps of money but will also send a truck load of traffic to the best ever sports betting site:innocent1_tb:

Using YouTube To Leverage Traffic

To be successful the video had to be sports related. It also had to be something that could attract a lot of interest. As Marc pointed out this type of video has attracted a lot of attention in the past and so there is no reason why it shouldn’t do so again. Just check out the image below.

Using YouTube To Leverage Traffic To Your Site

Notice how the fist video has received over 11 million views in just a year! Man I’d be happy with just 10% of that.

It took me a lot longer than normal to produce that video. I had to source the best high qualaity photos on the web which I could use. I then had to place them in the right order and come up with something smart to say that would amuse the viewers.

Finally I added a photo with the promise of more hot sports babes  with a link leading to my Hot Sports Babes posts. That way I get the traffic as well as increasing my YouTube earnings.

Just a couple of things to finish off. I just notice that with only 66 videos I now have 206 subscribers. That’s more than I have for this blog.  :party:

If you like the video I’d love for you to give it the old thumbs up.  :drunk_tb:
