    will Youtube ban your account for buying views and applying for monetization alone?

    That 1000% sure and I can confirm that after 100s of tests.

    My experience in order of importance:

    1) CTR

    12-15% higher the better.

    2) Watch time:

    at least 35% for video over 10min
    at least 50% for video less than 5min

    For my understanding, Youtube tests your thumbnail by showing it in a few places, especially for recent upload.

    Say the first 200-500 impressions you have 15% CTR, and youtube will show it to more and more people testing if you can stay there and, eventually, outrank the competition. Higher CTR = Higher Nr of impressions per day. For me that's the correlation.

    If instead, after the first 200-500 impressions you have 3-5% or less, your impressions rate drops, and youtube will start to show your video to fewer and fewer people.

    This is a very simplified version of what happens to new youtube channels/videos.

    That's why branding is important to catch the attention of the viewers, and for a larger channel, it is easier to jump in the first spot. Subs tend to watch your video immediately and stay there for longer.

    For The Thumbnail, you have to get it right at first BUT you have the opportunity to fix it, change it, and do A/B testing for best results.
    In my opinion it is something that most new youtubers overlook at it but it is the most important along with the content (retention).

    this 100% ^^ thats why having a great thumbnail and content is the most most important. the rest is just seo and getting your vid ranked for the keyword you want

    What are some tricks for monetizing non eligible channels. I read a method about using your own music and claim your videos using some distribution company. Does it work on NSFW channels?

    1) I have google account A - It has adsense. I have google account B - it has Youtube channel. Can I use adsense from A for Youtube which register on B?
    2) Again can you share thoughts about Youtube web traffic? Is Youtube good for web traffic to website? How many clicks to the website you can get from youtube views?
