First of all, let me start off by apologising for the delay in sending views. I realise this has been a ball-ache, but unfortunately, we had to stop sending views while maintaining the quality of our system.
We had some ratio issues and had to do some maintenance and get that sorted. That said, everything is going to plan, and traffic will recommence very soon.
Video Checker (New Feature)
Further to that, we've decided to add a YouTube Video Checker for your convenience. Why? Well, since many of you are reselling and/or aren't able to see if videos have ads enabled on them before adding those to the panel, this tool will come in handy.
All you need to do is click "Video Checker" right on the TOP bar. Add your URL and click "Analyze". That's it.
Here's an example:
Pretty simple stuff really. You get to check the following information about the video you want to add to a campaign:
Is It Mobile Enabled
Are Views Enabled
Are Comments Enabled
Can It Be Embedded
Are Subscribers Enabled
Are Links Enabled
Pre-Roll Ads Enabled
Duration No Longer Than 65min
That's quite a unique list of features not found anywhere else or by any other supplier. Something unique to CSA. AGAIN.
With that being said, please check videos before adding them to campaigns to ensure there are no issues or delays.
I would like to end off by explaining the whole Adsense debacle. I know that many people are questioning why it needs to be disabled, and it's quite simple really.
Our views are the only views of its type in the industry. We deliver Absolute High Retention views to videos of up to 1 hour. They are WatchPage views and do not require videos to be embedded like 90% of the suppliers out there.
90% of the suppliers are only able to offer views with a retention of up to 2min. While that's great for short videos, the methods used aren't really the safest methods. Especially with YouTube becoming stricter than ever.
We require ads and Adsense to be disabled for no other reason than safety. We are not in the business of getting channels or videos removed, and as such we do everything in our power to maintain a system and service that you truly WANT to come back to.
This is not up for debate and applies to all clients. Big and small across the board. Safety & Quality has and always will be our #1 priority.
Should you enable ads after a campaign has started and get lower retention than expected or your channel gets banned, the onus and risk falls entirely on you. There is a reason we ask for ads to be disabled during the ENTIRE campaign.
