If you have a pending application, when should you expect to hear back?
We’ve now grown our review team and are currently moving through pending applications at a faster pace. We’re hoping to get caught up by the end of June and will let you know if anything changes.
When we review your application we look at your channel activity–things like uploaded videos, strikes, views, subs, and watch time–and you’ll be approved for YPP if everything meets our Community Guidelines and our YouTube Partner Program policies.
While you wait, please keep focusing on growing your audience! The best way to build a business and earn money on YouTube is to have an engaged audience. We have a number of resources to help you create great content, grow your audience, and get discovered.
