Appeal videos marked "Not suitable for all advertisers"
If the content of a video you uploaded is identified as not suitable for all advertisers, you'll see a yellow dollar sign next to the video. You'll also get an email to the email address associated with your YouTube account.
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.
How to appeal
If you believe that your video is suitable for all brands, you can request manual review. We receive many requests to monetize videos every day and review these submissions as quickly as possible. However, right now we’re only able to review videos with at least 1,000 views in the past 7 days.
Follow these steps to appeal:
- Sign in to your YouTube account and go to the video in your Video Manager.
- Make sure that your content follows the advertiser-friendly guidelines — advertisers have a choice about where to show their ads.
- Click Request review and follow the on-screen instructions. You'll only see this option if your video is eligible for appeal. Once you submit, the text next to the video in Video Manager will update with your appeal's status.
How long does review take?
Review time depends on a variety of factors, such as video and channel performance. We receive many requests to monetize videos every day and review these submissions as quickly as possible. However, right now we’re only able to review videos with at least 1,000 views in the past 7 days.
Videos can only be submitted for review one time and the review decision cannot be appealed.
