What should a creator consider to be on the safe side?

Here are the most significant and common factors that tend to get duplication.

Video Spam:

Suppose video spam is the main reason to turn off your channel monetization. In that case, we can find the activity of uploading many similar videos, for example, if you upload how to make up, how to make up at home, how to use home remedies, and how to make up, etc. These all are similar to the same theme. Then it is considered spam.


The channel monetization disabled due to impersonation means that your YouTube channel is the mirror image of others. Your channel is similar to others where we can find the same videos, same avatar, same banner, same name, exact thumbnails, and identical video titles.

Misleading Thumbnails:

It is most commonly occurring on YouTube. Suppose you are searching for a “Beauty and the Beast” movie on YouTube. Then it shows plenty of results with the movie thumbnail, but when you click on that plays another old movie. In such type of situation, they turn off monetization. Here your thumbnail is not showing the content you have actually.

View Count Spam:

That means the involvement of third parties to gain the views at a time might lead to turning off monetization. Here is the usage of bots, making an exchange which means a picture for view or subscription for subscription, motivating the audience to watch your video content, buying fake opinions from third parties, and running your videos in the background for an extended period.

An activity of Invalid Click:

If the viewers like you are using bots to click the video ad to generate the bucks with no interest in watching may lead to turning off the monetization.

Monetization for your channel is still disabled even after reapplying.

Suppose your approach to the YouTube Partner Program and monetization is still disabled; you might have submitted insufficient documentation or ineligible video content. In this situation, the right one has claimed the videos submitted by you. The videos of you are confirmed repeatedly as not advertiser-friendly. You might not attach sufficient documentation as required.


Gaining through genuine activity helps the creators to be on the right track. Just trigger yourself to feed your enthusiastic audience with boosting and fresh video content. Before getting into the duplication, consider the above-stated factors to avoid repetition.
