    I'm new to Youtube and I've been hearing a lot of thing about strikes, accounts banned, etc. My idea is to use Youtube only as a traffic method to get visits to my blog. This means I wont monetize the channel, or at least not all the videos. My question is, can I use any music or movie clip as long as you don't monetize the video? Of course, I have Adsense on my blog. Can this be a problem?

    YouTube content system is pretty strict about movies. YouTube still hasn't quite caught up to compilation channels that are getting huge off of stolen content. If you're gonna steal content to drive traffic, I'd do something a little newer than movies. Seems like a ton of channels (even in some of my niches) are able to steal compilation content, add watermarks and do editing, and get away with it.

    Yeah you can use it for your blog and it would be save for your Adsense too. But be sure to comply with YouTube in terms of copyright infringement as it might ban your account.

    Oh, I re-read your post. Yes, you can use short movie clips in your video and as long as you do not monetize, then you will be fine. YouTube is a good way to drive traffic if you are smart about it.

    YouTube is tough in 2019. There are a lot newer platforms that can be "abused" but you can definitely still drive traffic on YouTube. Experiment and aim for a high watch time per impression rate and above average to high audience retention rate.

    You can market your YouTube on external websites and social media which can help you get recommended (assuming your content generates high watch time per impression).

    So, if I want to create a video talking about the best 10 horror movies, I can't use 10 clips of the movies I'm talking about, right?

    Thank you all for your answers. My idea is creating videos in a style "the 10 best horror movies of all time" or "The 10 best rock guitars ever". Of course, to do this you need to include scenes from movies, video clips, music, etc. Then of course, I would add text or even my voice over the video explaining a few things about the clips. I've seen a lot of channels doing this but with the new restrictions and how Youtube is acting, I'm not sure if it's safe.
