if it says monetized is it definitely monetized?

    i mentioned this in my other thread, but i really need an answer to this specific question before i waste hundreds of hours.

    my accounts were not banned, but they did remove the monetization from them (explanation in other thread). however, i opened another YT account and it allowed me to monetize it and link it to my existing adsense. so i was just going to transfer all my videos to the new accounts.

    however, i started yesterday and none of the views are showing up on my adsense statistics yet. i realize money earned doesnt show, but the views and clicks do. i started yesterday at about noon and still not a single view has shown up in the stats.

    so is my new account actually monetized? or is YT fucking with me making me spend a bazillion hours transferring for nothing? i really dont want to go through the hassle of trying to make a new adsense.

    View analytics takes between 24 to 48 hours to get updated.

    i thought maybe. but if thats the case, wouldnt i still be getting the views showing up from before the account monetization was disabled? or did they just shut them down too from before they made the decision to demonetize me? so do you think it is safe to go ahead and keep uploading the videos to the new account?

    I wouldn't want you to do a lot of work for nothing, so just wait another day or so and see the results, then you'll decide

    I've the same problem as you do. I don't think waiting will help since usually it instantly showed me the views.

    yea, i am confused as hell. i am gonna give it one more day to see if views show up on adsense. but again it just is really strange because i dont get why they would show the videos monetized when they are so quick to de-monetize videos all the time

    i read this and think that this may be the answer

    If your AdSense account has been disabled for invalid click activity or other reasons, you cannot participate in account monetization. If your account is reinstated by AdSense, monetization will be restored within a few days.

    my adsense was never reinstated since it was never banned in the first place. but i am thinking maybe it means that in a few days i will be getting paid again. i hope


    but then this makes me thing the opposite:

    If you receive multiple Community Guidelines strikes, copyright strikes, and/or worldwide Content ID blocks, you may lose the ability to monetize your videos on all the accounts linked to your AdSense account.

    by the sounds of that, if i open a new yt account and it is linked to my adsense, it wont make money. why the fuck is it so hard to get an answer to this stuff?

    i looked at the youtube/adsense forums. apparently a lot of people are having the issues of the views not showing in their adsense. so hopefully its just a bug and not all people that are just starting new accounts or got their monetization disabled. as someone who makes over $100 a day from adsense, sitting back is killing me. not sure if i should try to make a new adsense or if i should just make new youtube accounts. and i dont want to go all out on either in case it doesnt work out
