Is it me or are there loads of youtube ads today on the talks?

Hi Russell, once published, the videos are out there on youtube mercy. Our channel is not monetized, so we are not setting up ads ourselves 😕

Oh okay, yesterday i didn’t get the Ads and today, i had three in one 17min vid
Maybe you should monetize it if they are going to put ads on anyway 😃

Youtube's algo has probably seen the amount of traffic to the channel and is just auto-monetizing to get that sweet, sweet eyeball cash. Creators don't get a choice. It may be worth turning monetization on in case you can put a cap on how many ads are served. https://www.forbes.com/sites/johnkoetsier/2020/11/18/youtube-will-now-show-ads-on-all-videos-even-if-creators-dont-want-them/

Thank you both! Yes probably we should, i will talk with Luca and see what we can do.

Happy to help! 😊 And at worst I think you'll be able to turn off the worst ad categories (weight loss, I'm looking at you).

@russell Evans you can try using Brave 🙂 no ads
