If you have questions  about the yellow monetization icons and how they work, here is some info that might help.
  • Our automated ads systems run multiple scans to determine whether a given video meets our advertiser-friendly content guidelines. You can see if  your content is likely to receive a yellow icon before making the video public  by uploading it as unlisted or private. We typically do an initial classification of the video within 2 hours after upload.  A video's classification may change after publishing as the system continues to analyze more information from your video. We’re actively working to make this process happen faster.
  • If you have more than 10k subscribers, you can request a manual review of your unlisted or private video regardless of view count. Then, you can wait to publish the video until you’ve received an email update with the outcome of the review. We know this is difficult for some types of videos, like breaking news, and we’ll continue improving our systems to minimize the need for appeals.
  • If you don’t have 10k subscribers or meet the human review thresholds, make sure you've reviewed our advertiser-friendly content guidelines. The title, description, thumbnail, and tags of a video should meet those guidelines..  If you change the title, description or thumbnail, the system will take another look at the video within 24 hours (without having to request a manual review).
We’ll continue to update this list as we make changes and improvements. Check out how we're improving the technology behind our monetization icons.
