Get ready to start seeing more local ads on YouTube

A report from Newsweek said YouTube has enacted a new policy putting restrictions on videos that promote the sale of firearms and accessories.

The timing of this USA expansion is relevant because YouTube just last week announced new AdWords experiences that tie together Google searches with YouTube advertising and calls-to-action.

YouTube, which is owned by Google, has faced mounting pressure from gun control activists over the prevalence of gun-related videos posted to its site.

Full quote: "There's a lot more people in our funnel that we can frustrate and seduce to become subscribers". They will "smoke out" people who can afford to pay for a subscription and shepherd them to the new service.

YouTube Director onsite works by connecting area businesses with YouTube-approved filmmakers, who will schedule call with the advertiser to learn about the business and help them to write a script. "1/3rd of my videos or more will need to be removed".

According to MacRumors, thousands of Google employees are now involved in the testing phase for the new subscription service. "Everyone is drunk on the growth of subscription". You'd have to record your video through the encoder and then link the encoder stream to YouTube.

In short, if YouTube starts swamping music lovers with ads, why would they subscribe? It now has 71 million subscribers. With 159 million monthly active users, 88 million people around the world use the service's free, ad-supported service. The service provides 30 minutes of ad-free listening just for viewing a 30-second ad.

In a bid to lure users away from broadcasting services like Twitch, YouTube has finally launched a feature that lets users livestream from directly within the Chrome browser.

Besides finding a new revenue source, YouTube hopes that a successful service will pacify music industry criticisms that the Google video network is harmful.
