Get help with videos in the review process
If the monetization status has not changed for more than 72 hours or it seems stuck in the review process, check to see if Google sent you a follow-up email requesting more information. Make sure to check that the email address associated to your YouTube channel is correct in your account settings and you’ve opted in to email notifications.

Note: Repeated submission of ineligible videos, the same information, or insufficient documentation will not expedite the review time and may impact your ability to monetize videos in the future.

How long does review take?
Review time depends on a variety of factors, such as video and channel performance. Google receives many requests every day and review these submissions as quickly as possible. However, right now Google is only able to review videos with at least 1,000 views in the past 7 days.

Still having issues?
Try these troubleshooting steps:

  • If you’ve disabled ads for your channel within your Account Settings, ads will not serve on any of your videos.
  • Ads may not display on each video view. You can check your earnings to see if ads have been displaying on specific videos in YouTube Analytics.
