    I was doing some research for a few different niches to work on creating videos for youtube. I understand the basics of YT SEO and things like that should be considered to be the basics.

    I am not trying to use other people's content or anything, I'd be creating my own unique content in what would seem like some pretty lucrative niches, where level of expertise would protect me from people flagging my videos or competition unless there are other people with similar skill level but even then I doubt they'd do youtube videos.


    I don't mind sharing a little about the niches; One niche is in learning foreign language and the other niche is in learning related to software.

    Looking at google keyword planner there are some pretty decent search volume, with multiple keywords global monthly searches, 800-20k. Although there are some really old videos ranked high, when I look at the associated pages for each video on the first 3 pages, they all seem to have done 1 maybe 2 videos and then totally disappeared.

    These niches while they seem okay to me, I was wondering about adblockers. The people who would be interested in these topics might not be interested in seeing ads, banners or otherwise when they are watching my content. I don't have anything that would "go viral" but these niches seem like people will always be looking for the information that I provide.

    I plan to do 15 minute episodes to get a few changes for preroll video ads, a few banners and maybe an ad in the middle or towards the end of the video.

    There are a lot of experienced youtubers on here, do you think adblockers would be a problem? Especially in niches like these?

    Anyone have experienced issues with adblockers killing revenue?

    YouTube plays ad on the middle of video, I don't think adblocker can block those ads..

    the adblocker is blocking any communication from your browser to the ad server youtube use, so it basicly block it perfectly.


    if you have a good content, i suggest you focus on ranking high and replace those old videos at the top, don't worry about ad blockers, this is a minor % from the total visits, you should consider adding a profitable CPA offers
    that i'm sure you can easily find for your above niches, this can be a backup and a booster for your monetization

    Actually I made two videos with about 15 minutes of content each. They rank well, easier to rank than I though, just proper tag and good SEO. Actually in the beginning my videos didn't actually rank but I think because of the proper use of tags my video was shown to visitors and then they moved up to the top of the second page bottom of the first page. That's and my videos get about 80% completion.

    They do have adsense on them but the payment seems low and it took me about 8 hours do do 1 video. This while could work in the long term as a white hat method, I am already bored and would like to do something different with my skills.
