At that point there was the Logan Paul outrage, PewDiePie and furthermore sexualised recordings of minors that tormented the stage.
YouTube has rushed to react to the worries of sponsors and fundamentally expanded brand security controls and checking of substance on the stage. This included setting significantly harder benchmarks for recordings that can be monetised, putting resources into AI innovation and expelling up to 150,000 advertisements from two million recordings.
Google chief of brand, innovative and media offices, Kevin Ackhurst, disclosed to AdNews that a large portion of the promoters that took a rest from YouTube a year prior have returned on board.
“We feel that the stage is in a greatly improved place now than a year back and that our association with promoters is significantly more grounded and superior to anything it was,” Ackhurst said.

Ackhurst brought up it has taken YouTube a great deal of work to better comprehend the worries of promoters and alter arrangements and item advancement appropriately. One test is endeavoring to locate the correct harmony between being a flexibility of articulation stage and having the correct governing rules set up to guarantee YouTube remains a brand safe condition.
