    YouTube is clarifying its policies around profanity, and how using swear words affects monetization.

    YouTube says it takes three main factors into account when making a judgement about ad-friendliness:
    1. The title,
    2. The thumbnail
    3. How often profanity is used at the beginning of a video (ie close to when an ad would play).
    Everything is explained in their video.

    I don't really believe this much. I watch AVGN all the time he swears way too much and still has monetization.

    YouTube is about to get a lot more boring.

    I am pretty careful not to swear when recording, there was one video I let a few fly figured id be cutting that whole section out anyway when editing but then when I was editing I thought it was kind of funny so I used it but I cut the audio out on the actual swear words.

    True story: -- I once got a comment saying "Nice video but I didn't like the profanity." - I had said the word "damn" in the video lol. What is wrong with people always looking to be offended? ^^

    I don't really curse that much in my videos but that video is REALLY cringy. Hate to be other youtubers though.

    That doesn’t make sense to me. Am I allowed to swear as much as I want as long as I wait a couple minutes before I start?
    I just seems like a guideline that is neither clear nor reduce profanity.
