Q. As far as I am concerned, YouTube doesn’t allow monetization in Bangladesh. I set another country in the advanced settings of my channel. Well it somehow changed to Bangladesh now, but the monetization status is still okay. How is this possible?
A. From the looks of it Google may have changed its viewpoint towards a few countries including Bangladesh. As for Bangladesh, many people recently have been passing time on YouTube instead of traditional ways of entertainment like television. That’s why Google has understood the importance of such a big audience which they plan to utilize to their benefit. This is the reason they now allow monetization in Bangladesh. Also they changed the programming in their system so that any false/fake country can’t be set in the advanced settings of a channel.
Q. I am a mobile bank user from Bangladesh. Recently on 21st of this month I got a mail saying that Google had sent me $144, but when I checked my account I saw the balance was still the 77 BDT that I previously had. What happened?
A. Well, the payment Google has sent to your bank account is an electronic payment. It takes 5 to 10 business days for the money to show on your account. Have patience till then. If you don’t receive the payment even after 10 business days, then you’re supposed to contact Google regarding the issue.
Q. I have got 3500 clicks on my videos. Surely I have earned some money, but it doesn’t reflect on my AdSense account. Now what to do?
A. Probably you don’t know about the policy of Google that YouTube earnings are not daily updated on your AdSense, rather they are submitted to your AdSense balance on the 12th of each month (just once in a month).
Q. I got a strike on one of my YouTube videos. The video was fully created by me and the content of the video solely belongs to me. Why did I then receive a strike? I just copied someone else’s video’s title and tags.
A. Well, you should know that there are two types of strikes. The video’s content is fully yours, that’s why you didn’t receive copyright strike. But you used someone else’s video’s title and tags and thus tried to trick YouTube’s artificial intelligence in order to get more views and viewers in an illegal way. Since you cheated with YouTube viewers’ community, you got a community strike.
