YouTube rolled out new icons to give content creators a more detailed understanding of how each video on their channel (or channels) is monetizing as well as the ability to appeal if they think a video is misclassified. The icons will appear in the Creator Studio. If you have enabled monetization for your YouTube channel, you may see one of the following monetization icons next to your video: The green icon indicates videos that can earn money from the broadest set of advertisers and from YouTube Red. The yellow icon indicates videos that are still eligible to earn money in YouTube Red, but will have limited or no ads because these videos have been classified as unsuitable for all advertisers. The icon indicates videos that will receive no revenue from ads or YouTube Red. This might be because of a copyright strike, Content ID claim, or Community Guidelines strike. If you think your video is misclassified and is suitable for all brands and audiences, you can use YouTube’s monetization troubleshooter to get help with monetization issues. If your appeal is successful, more ads might be served on your videos.
