My story is not changing. My adsense account is linked to youtube, NOT EXTERNAL WEBSITES. When you sign up for the VALIDATION of youtube you have to create an adsense account. Then it takes you to the "last step" which is the famous counter with your watch time and subs. It does not automatically means I can monetize (! as I have to request to be reviewed and you can only do that if you apply for their requirements of subs and watch time.@Veecharlie - you said earlier in this thread that monetization on your channel is not activated and that you did not have an adsense acccout associated with a website, so it is NOT due to invalid traffic. Now you saying this:
Your story is changing.
They originally posted that:
So its can't be a traffic issue if monetization not on!
It definitively can be traffic, first of all because Youtube themselves claim it (read the pictures attached and Adsense rules on invalid activity) and second, I have only 2 videos or 3 claiming copyright BUT allowing me to still have the video uploaded IF I acknowledge them (did that). The videos have been up over two years with no complaints.
However, all the monetization from those videos (if they get monetized and not just claimed), does NOT go to me! (see proof above)
