Most Asked YouTuber Questions

We have provided all the 10 most asked YouTuber questions and the response by YouTube in this article below for the access of YouTube video creators.

1. How to get started creating videos on YouTube?

There are a few ways to get started on YouTube. It offers up different formats and functionalities, giving you the flexibility to create everything from Shorts, which are vertical videos that run 60 seconds or less, to longer-form videos.

No matter what you’re creating, you’ll need to start by creating a YouTube Channel.

  • First, you need to sign in to YouTube using a Google Account.
  • Once you’re signed in, click ‘Create Account’, and choose whether it’s for you or for your business.
  • You can then create a YouTube channel on your account, upload videos, leave comments and create Shorts and playlists.

Next, you’ll want to upload your videos!

  • Uploading is easy. You just sign in to your YouTube account and then click on the ‘Create’ icon.
  • If you’re planning to upload a longer form video, select ‘upload video’ and then choose your desired video file — you can upload 15 files at a time!
  • If you’d like to upload a YouTube Short, you’ll need to be signed in to YouTube mobile, where you’ll tap ‘Create’ and then ‘Create a Short’. From here, you can either upload a video from your camera roll or create one using its suite of lightweight tools.

2. How to grow a YouTube channel?

Growing a channel is all about creating videos viewers want to watch and accurately presenting them to the audience. When doing so, here’s a few tips to keep in mind.

With each video, think carefully about the title, description and thumbnail you plan to use — these should all accurately reflect your content and let viewers know what they can expect from the video. If you’re a Shorts creator, think about how the first 1–2 seconds of your content can grab viewers scrolling through the video feed!

Once you’ve got viewers watching, you can redirect their attention via hashtags, playlists, cards, end screens and more.

3. How to make edits to a channel?

Another question among most asked YouTuber questions is about editing a channel. YouTube Studio is the home base for posting videos and making edits to a channel. To update a channel’s basic info like name, profile picture and banner, just log in and tap ‘Customisation’ to see your options.

You can also make changes to your channel using the Studio Mobile app. You can tap ‘Your Channel’ and then ‘Edit Channel’ to update and edit how your channel looks to your viewers. Note that you can only change your channel’s name three times every 90 days. Read more about managing your channel.

4. How to promote YouTube videos?

Promoting your videos is all about getting the word out there. On YouTube, you can use tools like cards, end screens, Stories and Community posts to drive viewers to a specific piece of content!

Off-platform, think about promoting your videos on your socials and relevant communities, podcasts or platforms that align with your content and your intended audience. Read more about promoting your videos.

5. How do Trending videos happen?

Among most asked YouTuber questions, Trending section of the video platform is prominent. Trending is all about helping viewers see what’s happening on YouTube, and in the world. Trending tries to surface videos that a wide range of viewers would find interesting.

Trending isn’t personalised, and it displays the same list of trending videos in each country to all users, which is why you may see videos in Trending that aren’t in the same language as your browser.

At any given time, at least 50% of the videos on Trending in major markets are from YouTube Creators, with the remainder coming from music and traditional media. See what’s Trending now!

6. How does the YouTube algorithm work?

YouTube’s search and discovery systems are built to find videos that match viewers’ individual interests. It recommends videos based on things such as: what your audience watches and doesn’t watch, how much time they spend watching, what they like and dislike, if they mark a video as ‘not interested’ and on satisfaction surveys.

So, rather than trying to find a secret code to these systems, focus instead on making videos that you think will resonate with your audience. A great tool here is YouTube Analytics, which provides data that can help you understand how your existing content is performing and provide insights for future videos!

7. How to make money on YouTube?

Most asked YouTuber questions also include queries about monetization. There are a few ways for creators to make money on YouTube, but most start with becoming a member of the YouTube Partner Program (YPP), which is subject to eligibility requirements.

Once accepted, you’ll begin to gain access to a variety of monetisation products, including a share of the Ad and YouTube Premium Revenue generated by your videos; Channel memberships; merch shelf; Super Chat and Super Stickers; and BrandConnect. Each feature has its own performance and eligibility requirements.

The platform’s newest offering through the YouTube Shorts Fund is not limited to creators in the YouTube Partner Programme. Anyone is eligible to participate by creating unique Shorts that delight the YouTube Community. Each month, it’ll get in touch with thousands of creators with the most popular Shorts to reward them for their contributions. Read more about how YouTube video monetization works.

8. How to fix a YouTube copyright strike?

A copyright strike means that a copyright owner submitted a verified, legal takedown request on a video that uses their content.

To comply with copyright law, YouTube takes the video down. A copyright strike is a warning. The first copyright strike is a warning. If you get one, you’ll need to go through Copyright School, which helps you understand copyright and how it’s enforced on YouTube. Here are the three ways to resolve a copyright strike.

9. How to fix a demonetised channel?

There are a few reasons your YouTube channel can have monetisation disabled. Any of these actions can result in the suspension of payments:

  • Attempting to monetise videos you don’t own. Make sure that you have the right to upload the content: Check the copyright FAQ, and make sure that you know how fair use works.
  • Attempting monetisation of videos that don’t meet our advertiser-friendly content guidelines. YouTube may reserve the right to disable ads on your entire channel in situations where the majority of your content is not suitable for any advertisers, or where there are repeated, serious violations (e.g. uploading of content which is incendiary, demeaning or hateful).
  • Violations of YouTube monetisation policies, YouTube spam policies, AdSense programme policies or YouTube Terms of Service.

Depending on the issue with your video or channel, there are steps you can take to reinstate monetisation.

Remember: Severe violations of our YouTube monetisation policies may result in monetisation being permanently disabled on any of your accounts.

Your channel’s monetisation can also be paused. This happens when there isn’t an active and approved AdSense account linked to your channel. If you’re in the YouTube Partner Programme and your monetisation was paused, don’t worry — you’re still in the programme. Monetisation will resume after linking an active and approved AdSense account. See detailed policies and guidelines.

10. How to fix a hacked account?

Fixing a hacked account is also among the most asked YouTuber questions. If you notice that your YouTube account or channel has been hacked or compromised, you’ll first want to check whether or not you can sign in to your account.

If you can’t sign in to your account, you’ll need to recover your Google Account by answering some security questions to verify it’s yours. Then, you’ll be prompted to reset your password.

To keep your account protected, YouTube also recommends turning on 2-step verification, which can be done in your security settings. Read more on hacked accounts.
