Disney vs Google:
The YouTube Boycott &
How It Effects Us Content Creators

Did you ever wonder what would happen if Disney tried to buy out Google? If you laughed at that thought, then you haven't been watching the news, because that's what's going on right now, and why I titled this page. Disney vs Google: The YouTube Boycott & How It Effects Us Content Creators


Today's question about using Google AdSense comes from the SBI content creator's forum, which is private (costs $30 a month to join) and is pointless for me to link to here as the majority of readers on my site do not have SBI accounts and won't be able to access it.

Now the question had nothing to do with the boycott or Disney vs Google, but you know me... long winded and changing topics, resulted in that's what I talked about.

Here's the question:

[quote="Eyal"]

Hi everyone, I'm new to Adsense and couldn't find the answer to my Q in google Adsense help.

My Q is this:

1.  Does every page require to build a new Ad unit? (a new code?)

2. Suppose I'm about to put 2 different Ad units on a page (same size), should I build 2 different Ad units?

3. How can I avoid from watching the same Ads on the same page? 

Thanks

Eyal

See? Absolutely nothing to do with Disney vs Google at all! LOL!

*sigh*

Let's go get my answer and you can read it for yourself and see how it went from answering this question to rambling about Disney vs Google. 

You'll see that I start out answering her question, then, ramble off topic...


While my original answer to this question (Disney vs Google: The YouTube Boycott & How It Effects Us Content Creators) appeared on a thread in the SBI private forums, my answer here on EelKat.com is longer and has more detail then the one posted on the original forum.












Ads by Google


Disney vs Google: 
The YouTube Boycott & 
How It Effects Us Content Creators
My Answer:

I use just 1 ad site wide

I use the responsive ad, so it adjusts size to fit viewer's screen vs spot on my site, depending on if it's mobile or desktop or tv viewer (didn't know about the tv viewers until I saw it mentioned on Google's explanation on how to use the responsive ad)

I put the ad in 3 site-wide dots - the one under first paragraph, one in the middle of the sidebar, and one in the top of the footer;

The reason I put them in site wide dot, is because they automatically show up on every page without my having to remember to place them; 

AND, more importantly for me (as my site contains adult/NSFW content on some pages - Erotica author with sample pages of some of my books on some pages) putting them in site wide dot, means I can turn the ads off on certain pages, by turning those 3 site wide dots off on those pages.

I checked with Google, and they told me you can have ads on sites with adult content as long as the ads are not on the pages that contain the adult content, and the adult content is not the majority of the site content and it has to be "tasteful"  - in other words if my site featured say porn videos or sold sex toys, I couldn't use AdSense, but they said, an author home page with ads turned off on the pages promoting the erotica books, was okay... but they suggested it was a site by site basis situation and you seem to only be allowed to do so if you ask them directly...

I had contacted them, about it, after talking with another author who had been banned from AdSense for having Erotica books on her site... turns out she had risque book covers on her site logo on every page of the site and that was what she lost her AdSense for.

Point is, make sure you check their ToS and make sure nothing on your site is against their ToS (they have a long list - that includes, not posting News videos, and if you have LGBTQ content, you have to request manual review of your site in some instances.

ALL Gypsy, Jew, and LGBTQ content creators have had their AdSense turned off - mine was off for 2 weeks, while under review because I'm a Gypsy of Jewish bloodline and my site features history of Gypsies.

(it's due to the massive hacking of tens of thousands of sites, by the Ku Klux Klan throughout October 2016 to February 2017 - they targeted Gypsy, Jewish, and LGBTQ sites, and hacked sites posting KKK propaganda on them) .... 

Note that Google just changed their guidelines April 8, 2017...

the list of "Thou Shalt Nots" is MASSIVE now due to the boycott of Google going on -

Wall Street Journal, Coke, Pepsi, Starbucks, WalMart, AT&T, BBC, General Motors, Chrysler, CNN, Johnson&Johnson, and 250 other companies just pulled out funding from AdSense and are boycotting Google & YouTube...

(they are boycotting because the KKK's website had been approved for AdSense and was displaying their ads and their ads got played on a public execution that was live streamed on YouTube;

Google claims they didn't know the KKK's web site was being funding by AdSense and have banned it now (March 28, 2017) ... 

How serious is the boycott of advertisers in YouTube and on Google?

How serious is the boycott of advertisers in YouTube and on Google?

Serious for anyone relying on YouTube for full time income; pay is down 88% right now.

I do YouTube as a hobby in my spare time so not living off the income and thus not overly effected, however, I used to earn $10 a month from it, yet in March I earned $3 and so far in April I’m at $1.90. And yet, my views and subscribers are UP from February, by enough to have increased my income to $20 in March instead of the usual $10!

I have a friend who also does YouTube, but with him it’s a part time income; he averages $500 to $800 a month. In March he earned $57 and so far in April he’s not yet reached $10.

Another friend of mine who does YouTube as a career, earns $1,000 to $2,000 a month. In March he made $200. Now in April, he’s almost at $80. He lives off his YouTube income, he NEEDS that $2,000 to feed his family and pay his rent, but because of the boycott, he’ll be lucky if he earns even $100 this month.

And what’s worse...

 YouTube in their panic, unmonetized EVERY video with the words “jew”, “gay”, “lgbtq”, “transgender”, “gypsy”, “equality”, and “boycotte” in the title/description/tags meaning not only did the discriminatory haters get unmonetized, but so too, did ever gay vlogger, all transgender vlogs, all Jewish members, all Gypsy members and every one who was speaking AGAINST haters! (YouTube has said this was an error and they will have it fixed, but it requires a MANUAL review of EVERY umonetized video

 millions of them, and the review team is around 20 people

 its going to be MONTHS before the lgbtq and Jewish and Gypsy vloggers get their channels monetized again, meaning for the next several months they have ZERO income.)

How serious is the boycott? If you look at it from the perspective of the YouTubers who live off this income and are suddenly without a way to buy food or pay the rent, yeah, I’d say it’s pretty serious

Disney vs Google:
Global Giants Dukeing It Out

Disney right now is pulling the strings, threatening to pull their ads from Google, Google stocks are plummeting, they've lost $571million since the boycott started (March 2017) and Google is bending over backwards trying to not lose Disney (which they are saying could end revenue for YouTube creators as they claim Disney pays more then 70% of all AdSense income on YouTube) while trying to get the other's back -

ad income for us content creators is down 88% across the board for every body...

in other words, people who normally earn $1,000 a month are right now struggling to reach $200 a month and if Disney joins the boycott those numbers could drop significantly lower.

(And Yahoo.... Yahoo is also having financial trouble right now and Disney is honing in on them too....)

And every body thought Google was invincible... 

Google is standing on thin ice right now and they've got the viscous Mouse King holding a noose over their heads; 

Disney just bought RevelMode 

Disney is viciously attacking YouTube content creators; Buying out the biggest channels and shutting down ones they don't like.

-then shut it down

Disney just bought Maker Studios 

- then shut it down

Disney just took over primary share holdings of Google's YouTube Red

- then shut down it's biggest shows and replaced them with Disney shows - 

Disney just took over as primary share holder of Google's AdSense Premier Program

- then shut down tens of thousands of YouTube channels deleting millions of videos in an instant; while simultaneously banning AdSense users left and right

And all this has happened in the last 2 months

YouTube Has Been Hit The Hardest

Big advertisers like Coke and Starbucks (and 250+ more) have banded together and issued demands to YouTube, which resulted in YouTube unmonetizing ALL videos using LGBTQ, transgender, etc tags. If you had #Equality2017 as a tag - every video with that tag has been unmonjatized; all gay vloggers have had their entire channels demonetized

This all happened on March 28, it's been all over the news, because it has started a transequality protest to boycott youtube until they stop targeting trans members

Also most minority races have been unmonetitzed as well; all Jewish vloggers, Gypsy vlogger, Romany vlogger, and any one using the tags Jew, Jewish, Gypsy, Traveller, Romani have all been unmonetized.

YouTube claims that LGBT and minority races being demonetized was a mistake and they are working to fix it... they said they were trying to unmonetize anti-gay and pro-Nazi tags, but resulted in all Jewish and Gypsy members (including myself) being unmonetized because of having the tag jewish in videos - we Stephen King's Thinner Gypsies are very unhappy that all our "interviews with Stephen King's Thinner Gypsy" videos have been unmonetized

Yes there are a lot of conspiracies surfacing around the situation, but there are actual facts which caused the theories. There is no evidence that WSJ targeted anyone, no evidence that the advertisers or YouTube targeted lgbtq or minorities, however; there is evidence that 3 reporters from WSJ worked advertisers into a frenzy with fake screenshots they made of an anti-gay and pro-nazi video and that they contacted the advertisers in WSJ's name, thus why WSJ is taking a hit here. If you follow the actual news instead of the youtubers spouting theories, you get a better understanding of what is going on.

Overall, with the top 250+ advertisers pulling out, income on ALL YouTube videos is down by 88%... meaning if you were making $10 a month making your game videos, from now on you'll be making $2 a month instead with the same traffic, and this is why... not much if you were not making much to begin with, but if you are one of the smallish big YouTubers who normally brings in $1,000 a month, it means from now on you'll be seeing $200 a month, and that's a HUGE hit, when you consider you can live on $1k a month but you can't live of $200 a month. So, yeah, this is a big deal, that's why so many YouTubers are coming up with theories about why they's taken an 88% drop in income... one word: Coke. YouTube's statement indicated they are bending over backwards trying to get Coke back and desperately trying not to lose Disney. Apparently those 2 alone pay for almost every YouTube channel, and with Coke gone and Disney threatening to go next, YouTube is seriously panicking because it could bankrupt them, if they lose Disney too after losing Coke and the rest.

Disney wants YouTube and it looks like they are willing to kill AdSense income for everybody to get it.

Google is in financial trouble and Disney is cleaning up the mess - the "family friendly" ToS change of April 8, 2017, is just the first we should expect to see

We are right now watching the death of Google as dozens more advertisers join the boycott every day. And it turns out, like every other company on the planet, Google can't survive without the Mouse. Who knew the Mouse was pulling so many strings behind the scenes of Google?

Google is on edge right now, Disney has the upper hand (and waaaaay more money) if things get nastier then they already are, we could see Disney owning Google by the end of the year. 

The two biggest companies on the planet are dukeing it out right now and Google relies on it's advertisers to keep them going, while Disney is fully self funding and relies on no one but themselves... and poor Google, Disney pays 70% of their advertising income...Google is going down and they're going down fast. 

If they can't get Coke, Pepsi, and WalMart back, they may not be able to fight Disney on this. 

Disney wants YouTube and it looks like they are willing to kill AdSense income for everybody to get it.

I'm waiting to see how this all ends. If Google can recover from this or is Google going to become yet another victim of the Mouse?

The Quaraun Series On Amazon:

I am wondering why has Amazon moved the Quaraun books to the category "Transgender Romance" and also "Gay Erotica"? The base story is a deeply depressed, suicidal, drug addict Elf who's lover commit suicide and he's trying not to do the same. It's an old Elf in a tavern, monologuing a lot of flashbacks and back story scenes of his youth. These stories are dark, bloody, angsty, full of drug use, murder, rape, Medieval torture, mental/physical/emotional abuse, and references to depression and suicide - no romance in it, unless you count the occasional (and usually brutally violent) rape scenes that show up in nearly every volume - sorry - no clue what Amazon is thinking or why they moved these to Romance and Erotica, but these books are NOT even close to being Romance or Erotica on any level at all. When I published these books I put them in "Dark Fantasy" and "Yaoi". If they show up in any category other then "Dark Fantasy" and "Yaoi", it's because Amazon put them there without my authorization or approval.
