    So this is my 100th post and I wanted to share a tip I find I use all the time and people don't realize they can do.

    What are Non-skippable in-stream ads: <taken from google>
    Non-skippable in-stream ads are video ads that may appear pre-, mid-, or post-roll while viewing partner content. They can be up to 15-20 seconds long and viewers must watch the ad before they're able to watch the selected video. A companion 300x60 ad unit is usually displayed alongside YouTube videos that show in-stream ads

    Who has access to them?
    If you are part of any partnership other than adsense, you automatically have non-skippable ads. So how do adsense members take advantage of non-skippable ads?

    If you have adsense, how do you enable them?

    Here's a successful use case for it. In youtube analytics page, look at your ad performance tab and you can see the numbers. I have included a sample. It shows up in youtube analytics as Standard Reserved In-stream and is one of the highest paying ad types. ENABLE IT!

    Yeah but guess what? A lot of people will just dislike the video if you put those non-skipable ads. I know I would... for example as strategy I use messages to drive traffic to my videos. It`s not enough that I spam the shit out of people they would have to face a long 20-40 secs ad? No thanks it will kill my video. Maybe earnings would go up but its useless if the video gets deranked.

    I've never had a video deranked because of enabling ads. Its part of youtube now. Do people actually remember youtube without ads? This feature is the same feature that Vevo and other partners have enabled. Adsense users just have to manually submit for this feature to be enabled. As for Officialgt, please read Google's link and you will see that its not my link you are getting but rather Google's. I just posted it for everyone to skip the read and go directly to the page.
