YouTube will be adding mid rolls to eight-minute long videos at the end of July.
I’m going to show you how you can turn this setting on, so you can get the most out of your YouTube channel, boost your CPM revenue, making a little bit more money, especially just before Christmas and all of this US election stuff.
Add Mid Rolls To 8 Minute Videos on YouTube [From July 2020]
Now, for some of you that already have videos over 10-minutes long, you know how this works. You can either automatically place things in based on the YouTube algorithm, and it will generate adverts in seemingly the best places, but it’s not always perfect. Or you can add them yourself using the video editor.
I did a video on how to add to your own mid rolls. I’ll put it in the info cards up here.
Now, all it’s doing is moving from 10 minutes to 8 minutes.
So now there’s more videos that are relevant. It may even be that they’ve noticed on the platform that people are just under the 10-minute threshold.
How many videos have you seen recently that are nine minutes and 30-odd seconds?
So, this moves it a little bit down and four minutes with a mid roll seems about right.
What you need to do is go to your Monetization page and you will see a warning.
You can click here to see more information, which basically says that we’re going to be readjusting them for eight-minute mid rolls.
You don’t always have to use the mid rolls if you don’t want to, but there’s also this option setting where you can now choose between: “Yes, I want to opt in. No, I don’t want to.”
If you opt in, it will help you set all of your future videos from eight minutes on, and even retro set the old ones for you as well.
If you want to know how these mid rolls work, once again, there’d be an info card here, or if you want to make money outside, I’ve done a play list and a video that you can see here somewhere on this screen.
I’ll see you soon.
