About bloody time.

Speaking of which, doing the bushes on the M3 last night involved a lot of blood and swearing. Interesting to see if YouTube will flag the video up! scratchchin

How easily does that happen? As a rule of thumb, I don't swear in videos but the other day had one where someone else did and I wasn't sure whether to leave it in. Having published it without removing, the video didn't seem to get any negative consequence as a result.

I guess it all comes down to context and the kind of personality you portray? I don't hear that much swearing in yours, Danny's etc whereas the like of DMO'mydaze can't string more than a couple of words together without one expletive or another. But denday is street innit fam.

My videos usually go yellow for the first day or two, then back to green after they've been reviewed. I'm not sure if you saw the controversy the other week, but YouTube apparently uses this period to categorise the video with a rating system (PG/13/Mature etc), then uses this to target the ads. There's no way of telling which category you're in, as YouTube are still being quiet about this, but as a general rule swearing will put you in the mature category.

I'm not sure if I receive any ad revenue during the review time, it's not a massive concern for my channel being fairly small, but I would be concerned with a channel of your size to probably keep the swearing out.

Did you notice a drop in ad revenue from it, or was there a delay in getting the green monetisation tick?

There was no noticeable loss of earnings on that video at all; I would say it hit the same RPM as anything else at current. On the other hand, for whatever reason that video did not get a huge amount of views in total so it's not easily comparable.

I'm sure that YouTube promote videos that earn them more; although they might not admit to it. I.e. a video connected to high rate advertisers gets naturally more views as well as more revenue, than something that's less easily connected to adverts.

Tim, just out of pure curiosity, does it ever annoy you the sheer amount of times people seem to misspell Shmee "Schmee"?

It did 5+ years ago but I guess I'm completely normalised now to all sorts of strange spellings. Most phones will autocorrect it to 'Ahmed' too which is always funny.

Somehow, it seems that is actually an account with a grand total of 4 followers on Instagram!
