YouTube Advertisers Boycott - Real Talk!
I want to preface the following content by saying that I don't like to see YouTubers or YouTube creators hurt financially at all! I just heard about this yesterday April 9, 2017.
I would however be remiss if I did not at least acknowledge my sweet satisfaction in knowing that Google will be losing a lot of money from YouTube advertising revenue. This is something that has been a long time coming and as a web developer and website owner who has had his websites penalized and lost a lot because of changes Google has made, I say it's about F ing time!
The only thing I can say is - it sucks big time, doesn't it? How does it feel to have someone change the rules on you? How does it feel to lose money and have your world rocked, significantly. You (Google) will be losing an estimated 750 million dollars in advertising revenue because of this boycott.
Lord knows you deserve it too! How much have you cost small businesses over the years by changing your rules and search algorithm. I'm sure I'm not alone when I say, yeah take that, how does that feel? Now you can have a taste of your own medicine. Taste it, taste the same shit you have been cramming down the throats of website owners for years! Can someone please get Alanis Morissette on the phone, I believe Google has a Jagged Little Pill to swallow along with a huge bag of dicks!
I don't know why I feel such a sweet satisfaction over this but I do. Oh wait, yes I do! I say well played Wall Street Journal or whoever got this boycott kicked off! If it was the Wall Street Journal then you have succeeded in making yourself relevant again.
To the YouTube video creators - I am very sorry for your loss of revenue and the impact it will have on your livelihood. You will now feel the sting and intense rage that website owners have felt for years. Investing your time and effort into something only to have it ripped away from you when things are going great! It sucks! I am pulling for all creators to make it through and be better for the experience.
Anyone considering bringing their talents to the internet would be well advised to diversify their income as much as possible. When you only have one source it makes it a lot easier and a lot more likely you will eventually lose it. I don't say this lightly or to dissuade you but it's best you know exactly what you're getting yourself into.
