Question How many ads do you run per video?

I was wondering how many ads do you run per video? Do you break up your content with ads, or do you only run ads at the beginning or end of your videos? I was wondering if interrupting the videos with ads would break up the watch time statistics.

I usually do two! One before the video, and one once the video ends :)

I clicked all available boxes... not sure how many YT inserts. I have whatever YT defaults to. I get paid - so they are putting in some. I suppose it is beginning & end?

As a viewer it would be rare for a vid to keep my interest well enough to put up with a mid-roll ad. Since I would not watch one, I do not add them.

~edit~ I just noticed the checkbox for after the vid... guess I just have them at the beginning. Would anyone watch an end ad? (I know I would not).

Currently you only have one ad being displayed at the beginning of the video :) However all ad types are accepted.

I only have ads playing in the beginning of the videos, mainly because I don't really bother to check monetization as much :v

When It comes to video ads I normally only do the add at the beginning. The reason for that is that people don't like adds and my channel is still small and growing (getting between 25 - 90K views a month) and I believe focusing on growth is more important to my channel than making money right now. In the future, if I ever get to the position where the channel could actually give a decent amount of money I would probably focus more on the monetisation.

But recently I have been doing some experimenting with monetisations, video length, audience retention and multiple ads and stuff like that just to better learn what type of videos to create and better know what to do when I want to focus more on monetisation then I currently do.
