    i've checked reports and since start of this month impressions and CPC dropped very much, views are still same and even better but ad impressions and cpc is very low, i'm making videos for kids and cpc was not good in the past it was 0.02 but now it is even worse 0.01 now and impressions are very low compared to pageviews, what's happening google really got hit from advertisers who decided to stop their Adwords campaigns on Youtube?

    Hey there, I am not certain but I think it had something to do after the pewdiepie accidident because he supported the nazi's. A lot of youtube campains held back because of it. At least that is what i've read yesterday. So don't quote me on it.

    Lmao no.

    Big advertisers are boycotting YT because their ads are being shown on videos that contain inappropriate content. Which is super ironic bc a lot of those companies sell their products to racists and terrorists, but don't want to advertise to them.

    You take their money but you don't want their business. Wtf is that?

    Anyway, this is what happens when you get to be too big for your britches. G is feeling what it's like to be at the whim of the fickle public they serve.

    If you're relying on adsense as your only form of monetization for Youtube, you're doing it wrong :-/

    Good thing I never decided to get into YT publisher. They've always been cheap IMO.
