Subtitles section Play video Print subtitles Welcome back to this three-part series about YouTube's rules of the road. In the first two videos we talked about Community Guidelines and copyright. In this last video, I'll get into how the YouTube Partner Program and our advertiser-friendly guidelines work. Now that you've posted content that complies with those what else could there be? Well, in order to make money on YouTube you need to join the YouTube Partner Program (YPP). We built policies for YPP with the goal of rewarding creators who work hard on unique and original content. The success of the YouTube Partner Program relies on advertisers willing to associate their brands with YouTube videos. If they lose trust in YouTube, it can hurt the earnings of all creators. So, we don't allow egregious behavior that has a large negative impact on the community. This means you should be respectful of your viewers, your fellow creators, and our advertisers -- both on and off YouTube. For an overview of each YPP policy, click the Card in the top right hand corner of this video. Once you're in YPP you can make money from features like channel memberships, Super Chat, or even create your own merch. You can also run ads on your videos but, in order to make money from ads on YouTube your content must follow YouTube's advertiser-friendly content guidelines. Brands come to YouTube to connect with potential customers but it's important to them that their advertisements only show on content that aligns with their brand. Because of that, we've worked closely with advertisers and based on their feedback, have created advertiser-friendly guidelines. Advertiser-friendly content is appropriate for most audiences it doesn't include sensitive themes like sexually suggestive material or drug consumption. Some brands are willing to show their ads on more mature content but if your video contains mature themes it might receive less revenue from ads overall because fewer brands are interested in showing ads on your video.

We hope this was a helpful overview of YouTube's Community Guidelines basic copyright, YouTube Partner Program policies and advertiser-friendly guidelines. These systems all work together to keep YouTube safe, legal, and allow you to make money so be sure to familiarize yourself with the ones that make sense for the way you intend to use YouTube.
