YouTube Partner update: new option to appeal if your video is "not suitable for all advertisers"

Some YouTube Partners have noticed that they have a video that is monetized, but seems to be rarely showing ads.

YouTube is rolling out changes that make it clearer when a video is deemed "not suitable for all advertisers" and implementing the option to appeal.

A video will be marked "Not suitable for all advertisers" in Video Manager if:

It is not considered suitable for all brands, so the video will receive fewer ads.
It does not meet the criteria for advertiser-friendly content, so the video is not eligible for advertising.

* In your video manager, there is a new yellow monetization icon.

Previously, some of these videos may have had either a green icon or strikethrough icon in Video Manager. Now, they may have a yellow icon with a note that says, "Not suitable for all advertisers."

* If you believe that your video should be suitable for advertisers, you may be able to appeal that. There are a couple of caveats though:

> right now YouTube is only able to review videos with at least 1,000 views in the past 28 days.

> the review may take a long while. This is what YouTube says:

Review time depends on a variety of factors, such as video and channel performance, the history of videos you've submitted for monetization, and the eligibility of your content.

Keep in mind that we receive many requests to monetize videos every day and review these submissions as quickly as possible. We may not be able to process every submission, but we continually monitor these factors and prioritize accordingly.
