Why Won't YouTube Let Me Monetize My Video?

YouTube will not let you monetize your video with AdSense if you do not first meet several guidelines. To monetize your video, you must be at least 18 years old, your video content must be advertiser-friendly, your video must use self-created content or have commercial permissions and your video content must comply with YouTube's Terms of Service and Community Guidelines. Additionally, if your account is not in good standing or has been previously disabled for monetization due to previous violation of any of these guidelines, you won't be able to monetize any videos on your channel.

Age Requirement

If you are not 18 years old or older, YouTube will classify you as an underage publisher and will not allow you to monetize your video with AdSense. If you are rejected for this reason, you will receive an email from YouTube asking you to verify your age. If you are 18 or older and receive this email, you can follow the email's instructions to verify that you are 18 or older and then resubmit your application. If you are under 18, the only method to monetize your videos is to link your YouTube account to an approved AdSense account of a parent or guardian over the age of 18.

Advertiser-Friendly Content

If your video content is not advertiser-friendly, YouTube will not let you monetize your video. Content with nudity or violence that intends to shock or disgust is not appropriate for advertisers. YouTube lists vlogs, home videos, do-it-yourself or how-to videos, original music videos and short films as examples of successful advertiser-friendly content that you can monetize.

Content Permissions

If you do not have copyright permission to use any part of your content, YouTube will not let you monetize your video. You must have created the content entirely yourself or have documented permission to use the copyrighted content of others commercially. Examples of copyrighted content from others than cannot be used commercially without their permission include music (including songs, lyrics and background music), photographs and artwork, movie or TV visuals, video game or software visuals and live performances.

Terms of Service and Community Guidelines

If your content does not comply with YouTube's Terms of Service Agreement as well as its Community Guidelines, it cannot be monetized. Terms of Service prohibit modifying YouTube's embeddable player in any way for your website, using another person's YouTube account without his permission and submitting content that infringes upon local, national or international law. Community Guidelines prohibit pornography, child exploitation, hate speech, graphic violence and negative content such as animal abuse or underage drinking. You can review both sets of rules in their entirety on YouTube's website.

Good—and Bad—News About A Coronavirus Vaccine

Perhaps you’re one of the hundreds of thousands of people turning to the fastest-growing subreddit in the last weeks, r/coronavirus, where new and veteran Reddit users are going for the latest on the novel coronavirus outbreak. Currently topping the list at r/worldnews for comments and upvotes is a linked article that hints at a fast-tracking coronavirus vaccine in development in Saskatchewan, Canada. The lab in this hopeful scenario is the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Organization-International Vaccine Centre (VIDO-InterVac) at the University of Saskatchewan. According to a university news release, research teams there have coaxed the virus to grow in cells and have moved on to testing a new vaccine in animals. The researchers say that they hope for hints by April of whether or not the vaccine might work. In fact, Volker Gerdts, CEO and director of VIDO-InterVac, told Narcity that he is “positive” that the vaccine will work. That tone of hopefulness is likely what grabbed the attent
