Common Reasons Why a YouTube Channel is Not Monetized & How to Monetize It

YouTube is a popular platform for content creators to share their work and potentially earn revenue. However, not all channels are eligible for monetization. Here are some common reasons why a YouTube channel might not be monetized and how you can monetize your channel, including YouTube Shorts.

Reasons for Non-Monetization

In addition, if your channel doesn't meet the current YouTube Partner Program (YPP) requirements, it won't be monetized. As of 2022, creators need to have at least 1,000 subscribers and at least 4,000 hours of watch time over a rolling 365-day period.

How to Monetize Your YouTube Channel

To monetize your YouTube channel, you need to apply for the YouTube Partner Program (YPP).
Here are the steps:

Monetizing YouTube Shorts

YouTube Shorts are also eligible for monetization. Revenue sharing on YouTube Shorts started on February 1, 2023. Monetizing partners can earn money from ads that are viewed between videos in the Shorts Feed. This new revenue sharing model has replaced the YouTube Shorts Fund.

To start sharing in Shorts ad revenue, monetizing partners will need to accept the Shorts Monetization Module – terms that let you earn from ads and YouTube Premium in the Shorts Feed. Shorts ad revenue sharing will apply to your channel’s eligible Shorts views starting on the date you accept.

Remember, all content monetizing with ads must follow YouTube's advertiser-friendly content guidelines. On Shorts, only views of content that follow these guidelines will be eligible for revenue sharing.
