Hi @wengthemeng, thanks for all the useful tips you post on BHW. Quick question, why would youtube demonetise an account? I create my own content with voice over, I shouldn’t be worried about getting demonetised, right?

Best way to do keyword research with free methods/tools?
You can watch my video here on how I do KW research

i tried smm panel to one of my accounts not yet monetized and I looked at the analytics and it says 90% traffic source is "Direct or unknown" will youtube still monetize my channel if I reack 4k hrs with that kind of traffic source coz direct is like putting the url directly to the browser and its not natural traffic like Youtube search or Youtube recommendation. I tried another smm and analtics says 70+% of my traffic comes from Youtuibe search which is really perfect. Are these traffic source essential to approval?
I always stay away from BH methods when it comes to youtube. Everything i do is organic. All i know is that youtube is quite good a detecting what they like to call "invalid traffic" at which point they can suspend, demonetize, or even terminate your adsense account. Id stay away from it.

First of all, thank you for all the awesome info shared with us.

My question is would you recommend buying subs in order to meet the 1000 threshold? If so do you think it will affect my overall channel?

I`m currently struggling on one of my channels as I have more than enough watched hours (getting roughly 100+ hours/day) but my subs are somewhere around 600 and growing really slow (maybe 2-5 a day).

Virtually all my videos are getting in suggested after a day or two.

Thank you.
Usually watch hours are the harder one to get over subs. If i were you, if youre getting videos that are already in the algo and they re genuine videos, you can capitalize on them through playlists and endscreens. Do you have a CTA in your video saying to subscribe?


God I really appreciate your stuff so much man. I'm finally earning on YT and 99% of why is because of you! Thanks for this thread and I'm definitely buying one of your packages soon! real soon!
Happy to help man truly! THere's more than enough room for others on YT
so the videos you make are similar to like what this is?


thumbnails look very simple with clickbait titles

Do you have any example of how to translate this over to the tech space, like giving news and analysis on iphones, airpods max, tesla cars etc.
Yes similar to that. I would find some top 10 tech channels where there is no face involved. Look into techgumbo to give you an idea.
Can I be monetized with text to speech videos?
There's a possibility that you get away with and be monetized with TTS but ive heard too many bad occurences happen to IRL people i know where they get demonetized after some time. I wouldnt have my YT business model revolve around TTS- that's forsure.

Please, can you recommend some software you use for video editing?
I use final cut pro x

Why some of my videos not show after typing the title?
There's only room for so many videos in "search." If your CTR and average watch tiem is not comparable to those in the top 10 search results, it's not gonna appear.

Hello, I recently saw a country comparison YouTube channel called "Facts King" using a kind of video template with music background.

I noticed that there is no ads running on the channel.

Can this kind of videos get monitiezed?
I think i replied to this on a different thread but my answer was assuming no!

Hi @wengthemeng, thanks for all the useful tips you post on BHW. Quick question, why would youtube demonetise an account? I create my own content with voice over, I shouldn’t be worried about getting demonetised, right?
So ive spoken with a google rep before and three reasons why your channel would get demonetized:
1. You no longer meet the 4k watch hour/ 1k sub threshold
2. Your adsense was associated with a demonetized channel before.
3. You stop posting completely.

If youre making genuine VO content, you shouldnt worry about getting demonetized.[/MEDIA]

@wengthemeng since you upload loads of videos monthly, have you ever thought of using something like https://www.synthesia.io/? Their personal plan is shit but I am pretty sure you could make a good use of their corporate plans

Have you ever experienced drop in views after connecting mutiple channels to the same adsense account?
I read a thread where someone claim to experience drop in views after adding a second channel to an adsense account already connect to another channel.

I'm thinking this could be a considence or due to something else but since I only have one channel connected to my adsense account I can't check it my self.

Do you have mutiple channels connected to the same adsense account and have you ever experience any negative effect due to that?

Curious - Weng, what is your opinion on the advice of the two main gurus - Let's call them Patt Marr and Morden Jackey?

Thanks

I have thought of using an AI before! What i dont like about it is simply just the voice. I feel like voiceover artists are more engaging and trustworthy; and with those two elements, watch time should hopefully increase.

Please, recommend a place or sites to buy high quality voice overs for youtube videos? Thanks
I always get mine from fiverr or upwork. It requires a lot of "interviewing" of people but trust me, quality voiceovers are out there for affordable prices.

Should i make a completely new AdSense if my old one is associated with a demonetised account?
Was your demonetized account ever remonetized again? Youre only allowed to have one adsense account, so i would stick with the one you have.

when it comes to the videos on youtube, why do some videos get flagged and others don't? when they have the exact same content

thanks in advance
If you can give me examples of this, i would be happy to provide an answer.

hey bud, i have not experienced a drop in views after connecting multiple channels to the same adsense account. I wont disclose how many channels i have connected BUT what i have noticed is this:

There's always a drop in views at the beginning of the month which slowly ramps up towards the end of the month. This- to me- is an interesting coincidence that has happened most months out of the past year.

Curious - Weng, what is your opinion on the advice of the two main gurus - Let's call them Patt Marr and Morden Jackey?

I try my best focus on myself and do the experimenting and testing myself. I respect the hustle on both of them and i know Matt Parr in particular is always appearing in my YT ads haha. I always respect people who are grinding and taking action- you can never go wrong with that. If you want to ask me more specific questions regardings what i teach though, id be happy to give my input.

Apologies! I can't seem to send you a pm, I was hoping I could get a link to that YouTube video of how to start a gaming channel please? Thank you!
Sure thing!

I want to ask a question — and I don’t mean to offend you as I’m genuinely curious — how come your giving our advice on YouTube growth when your own channel has so few views?

Because he has a dozen of cash cow channels that make him a lot of money. Just because his personal channel has 1k subs, it doesn't mean that he doesn't know what he is talking about. If Warren Buffet opens a new channel and has 10 subs, it means that he doesn't know a thing about investing and making money?

I get what you’re saying and maybe I was too hasty as I didn’t research him enough before “implying” something. I guess his methods are better suited for growing multiple channels with viral niche ideas, and not really for single channels focused on long term growth where one puts themselves out there with face and all that

Hey, bud! no offense taken! You're definitely not the first one to ask. But I basically run multiple channels. My time is quite constrained that I find it hard to actually film on my personal channel so I just post here and there on my actual film channel

Good day BHW,

I found myself answering a bunch of people's questions quite thoroughly in this section of the forum to only realize that not everyone is probably gonna read my answers. So why not start an AMA?

I hope to inspire/ motivate people to take action on YouTube:)

Ask me anything regarding the following topics (credits to @Takurah for this list)
  • Content Creation
  • Keywords
  • Proper Titles
  • Traffic sourcing
  • Fake view boosting
  • Back Linking
  • Editing Software
  • Niche Finding
  • What to film/edit/make next?
  • Why things go viral.
  • Basic Algorithms
  • Collaborations
  • Camera
  • Lighting
  • Monetizing your Youtube Channel

All that and any of that plus more.

Here are a few questions I've answered already:

Q: If I bought subs+ views and reached monetization criteria, will my channel get monetized?
A: A lot more details are factored when it comes to monetizing your channel. I ll layout my process of how someone i know monetizes their channel and has actually done it for me too.
1) aged YT account
2) i branded the account, actually created a profile pic/ banner/ created twitter page as well to link it with.
3) posted 3 videos; 2 10 min long ones, and 1 2 hour long one- similar niche, commentary/ screen record type videos.
4) Buying subs is easy, im not gonna recommend an SMM panel though but justbuy 1k.
5) as for teh watch hours, my friend has his guy bot the watch time on his 2 hour long video.
6) apply for monetization; receive acceptance after 2-3 weeks.

Now this is the general criteria I follow after I receive approval:
1) Keep videos public until more than 10 new videos are posted.
2. dont change primary owner for another 6 months
3. NEVER turn on monetization for the watch hours video
4. Dont change passwords for a couple of months
5. dont change emails for a couple of months
6. It’s OKAY to monetize new videos on the channel that you post.

--------

Q: If my YouTube account was connected to a banned adsense acccount, is it still okay for me to connect another adsense account to it?
A: From what I've learned from google reps through chat is this:
Channel A is connected to Adsense A.
Adsense A gets banned, but Channel A is still monetizable.
You are still allowed to connect Channel A to Adsense B.

If the reasons why Adsense A got banned though is BECAUSE of YouTube activity, then youre gonna need to fix your youtube to abide by YouTube policies. If you don't, then you would then be putting Adsense B at harm.
If the reasons why Adsense A got banned is NOT because of YouTube activity, then connecting Channel A to Adsense B should be perfectly fine.

You'll know if Adsense A got banned because of Channel A if you receive a notification or copyright strike or etc. that it was related to youtube activity.


-----------------------
Looking forward to answering your questions during this quarantine time.
I really need some ideas that how to start in e commerce world ,could you kindly give me some encouraging thoughts?

For e-commerce, I honestly believe you should nail down ads (Facebook pref) first before considering organic YT as an option. Are you already profitable with ads?

What's your advice to a beginner on youtube?
Very vague question. You can read my journey thread here: https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/youtube-viral-video-empire-journey-to-30k-month-with-adsense.1176936/page-34#post-14145231 you ll probably learn a lot.

Right off the bat:

1. YouTube is a long-term game
2. Make sure you post creative videos
3. Spend as much time on your thumbnail as you do your entire video
4. Capitalize on trending topics
5. Don’t spend more than 20 seconds on tags

Any good editing software that fuse function between premier and after effect. But not as heavy as both of them
