    we can build a list of scam youtube networks which never pay, or never let you cancel your contract

    i had a bad experience with Scale Lab network

    they offered a "no lock in" contract which i was supposed to cancel whenever i like, but sadly i cannot since they are not answering any of my mails and i do not even have unlink option on youtube dashboard

    they are also filthy thieves, since they paid me just $2 for over 100k real, organic views


    so, do not have any business with them please


    feel free to write your bad experience here

    Freedom.tm isn't a scam network, however they sometimes miss payments, they've accumulated $XXX of unpaid balances for me over some time which isn't the end of the world but still it's disappointing since I expect to receive all the money I earn through them through my ads. I've since left them and now I am independent again.

    Honestly, I don't understand why people use YouTube networks, with extra effort you can grow and have 100% instead of 60-90%. If someone could clarify why people use them? Is it to do with multiple channels or something?

    partnership networks were the only option to monetize youtube videos in my country up until a few months ago

    people use them if they want to experiment with mass uploading, copyrighted content, promotions and other stuff

    but they are not good overall

    i have one channel linked to machinima (since that was the only option back then) and it earns just $15 a month
    i have other channel with just a few videos and i am not doing anything on it, but it is linked to adsense and it earns about $30-35 a month for more than half less monthly views than the first one
    i have another channel with socialblade and they are good and pay regularly
    i have several other channels with some random networks and concluded that Scale Lab was total scam and that Freedom is borderline scam

    I think Famebit is trusted. You can check the thread.
