YouTube Release New Options To Appeal Videos Misclassified For Advertising.

Updated: May 2, 2018

YouTube have today announced that they are rolling out new monetization icons that will give you more information on whether the video is being monetized, as well as expanding the ability to appeal videos that have been flagged as unsafe for advertisers.


"As a part of these recent changes, however, some videos were classified as not suitable for all advertisers, limiting the number of ads served on those videos. There was also no ability to directly appeal in Video Manager. Over the next few weeks, we plan to roll out new icons that will give you a more detailed understanding of how each and every video on your channel (or channels) is monetizing as well as the ability to appeal if you think a video is misclassified. We want our systems to get better and better - and every appeal helps"

When this feature is available in your account, you will see a notification in Creator Studio. It’s important to note that the revenue being earned by your video is not changing with this launch. Instead, this update gives you a more detailed understanding of whether your video has been identified as not suitable for all advertisers and provides the chance to appeal in Video Manager.
