After all this time inactive I'm still gaining subscribers and getting views. My channel has been like this for about three years now. It sees this activity about every two days. Analytically it cannot be said my channel isn't making someone money, But it's not making me anything. Let me give you a breakdown On YT and what I was making monthly through them. Before the demonetization a few years ago my youtube was making about a hundred fifty dollars a month, Now, I know that isn't much, But consider, Channels like mine exist, Making Google money, And we don't see a dime of that because we don't meet the monetization criteria, Yet my videos do have a steady flow of traffic they are still till this day pulling down about meh, four hundred unique views per week. There are many channels like mine, And they continue to make Google money, But not us, Not the creators. Oh well, I know it's chicken feed, But it came from my own hands, That content is mine I created it. it does generate google money, So why does it not benefit me? Don't get me wrong, This has happened to many people, So It's not like I'm jumping from a rainslick precipice of darkness or going ballistic or anything. But dude. It's pulling down money for Google, that's an absolute fact, And we reap none of the rewards.
