Does anyone notice an increase in their discovery once monetised?

    Hey guys!

    I have been worried recently if this is the case. Having a channel of 600 subscribers I have been monetising for a while. However I now have a second channel of nearly 190 subs and fast approaching 10,000 views.

    I now am debating whether to activate the monetisation at 10,000 views or leave it for the moment. I know I wont get much money and my past argument was whilst we are small we don't want to discourage people from watching our content by putting ads in.

    However, I am now wondering if YouTube puts preference to those channels that do allow adverts, and therefore making you more easily discoverable. Has anyone got an evidence or experience to suggest this?

    I don't have personal experience with this, as this channel isn't monetised (haven't reached 10K views yet) and my previous channel was monetised since it started, but I have seen other people show graphs of when their videos get demonetised and their view counts immediately drop. I would recommend just experimenting with it for a couple or weeks and see if ads make a difference and then you can go from there. Either way though people are very used to ads on videos now anyway so I doubt that it would discourage many people, and for those sorts of people they'll probably have an ad-blocker on or have YouTube Red if it's available to them.
