Hey, guys. My name is Tim Schmoyer, and
it’s Thursday. Time for some YouTube Q&A with you guys. myyoutube912 wrote and asked
this, “Hi Tim. Is there a way to limit what types of commercials are played in my videos
when I am a Partner? There are some that I find inappropriate for my target audience.
Thanks.” Yes, there is, and it’s actually very easy. If you log in to your AdSense
account, at the very top you will see a link that says Allow and Block Ads. You click on
that and then you’ll have all these different options right here. So, advertiser URLs,
you can put the URL of the advertiser whose ads that you don’t want to be displaying on
your content. General categories that you can just eliminate, disallow or allow, if
you just kind of want to be like, “I don’t want any clothing stuff to show up on my-,”
that you can kind of drill down to these a little bit, too, if you want. There are
other categories, sensitive categories, that some people kind of want to. . . Maybe, you
don’t want religion, or you don’t want dating stuff. You can just disallow each of those.
Then you also have the Ad Review Center where you can review different ads for your
account and things like that. Everything in there is pretty self-explanatory, and if
you have any questions the Help menus make it really easy to understand. If any of you
guys have used this tool before and have some tips and ideas about how we can best utilize
this tool for blocking and allowing ads, please comment below and let us know. I haven’t
used it a whole lot, just for a couple of little things here and there, so I’d love
to learn from you guys. If you have a question about YouTube or online video audience development,
whatever, that you’d like me to answer in an upcoming Thursday, comment on it below,
or in the description text of this video, you’ll find a link where you can send me a
video of you asking me your question. It would be awesome to actually just put your
face right here and just interact with you guys a little bit that way. So go check
that out, and if this is your first time here, we’d love to have you subscribe. Every Tuesday
we take a look at online video news, talk about the latest things that are happening
in this industry, what it means for us as video creators. On Tuesdays, we give you
guys some YouTube tips and advice, and here on Thursdays we do some Q&A with you guys.
And I do it all because I really believe that a lot of you guys have messages that
people out there really need to hear, and I’m going to help you guys get your message
to connect to the people who need to hear it and be changed by what you have to say.
Thank you for letting me help you guys do that, so subscribe and I will see you guys
again next week. Bye.
