How much you're earning
This report shows you how much your channel has earned in the last 6 months.
How much you're earning is subject to adjustments due to:
- Invalid traffic
- Content ID claims and disputes
- Certain ad campaign types (for example, cost-per-day campaigns)
If your estimated income fluctuates, it may be because of these adjustments. These adjustments happen two times after earned revenue shows in YouTube Analytics:
- The first adjustment happens after one week, giving a more complete estimate.
- The second adjustment happens in the middle of the following month and reflects your finalized earnings.
