Q: What is the type of video content made for kids? What kind of content do I have to make for YouTube kids?

You tube has a clear outline of ‘what is content made for kids.’ You can learn more here to help you “determine if your content is made for kids.”

Step By Step Process (sort of) for creating Youtube Kids Videos

  1. Create or have an existing youtube channel dedicated to Kid Safe Videos. In this example my channel name is: “Joannes Channel”

  2. On “Joanne’s Channel” we add content that is kids safe. ONLY content that would be approved for kids. This is one way (we think) youtube knows this channel is following kid safe video rules.

  3. After uploading your video to youtube, let’s tell youtube this is a kid video. In the video editor > under audience > “Is This Video Made for Kids? (required)”

    • You tube needs to know if this content is approved for kids.

    • IF IT COMPLIES WITH THE “CONTENT MADE FOR KIDS,” then click “Yes. it’s made for kids! “

    • This click (we think) adds your video to “the youtube review cue for content screening (jump to the explanation)” for approved you tube kids content.

Q: How does YouTube screen video content for YOUTUBE KIDS? Can I share videos on kids YouTube? Can I upload video to youtube kids?

The basics of youtube screening content for you tube kids includes two steps.

  1. Using a formula (algorithm) that tracks several factors like comments, length of views, etc. and

  2. HUMAN eyes.

You Tube follows a couple of proprietary steps to generate content for YouTube Kids.

Starting at the end of the process, the Human eyes part we are sure of.

We are certain that the community guidelines allows viewers (several humans) to report content that would not be appropriate for YouTube Kids.

We are also certain that the google team has eyes on youtube kids. They conduct regular reviews of content, and flagged community concerns.

Q: How Does YOUTUBE Pick Videos to Show on Youtube Kids? Can you make youtube videos on youtube kids? How to post videos on YouTube kids?

Here is a little bit more about how YouTube curates content for the YouTube Kids app. There is no video upload to youtube kids. Instead if your video has great keywords + kids search terms - then Youtube will:

  • STEP ONE: (we think) Algorithmically filtered for its child-friendliness.

  • STEP TWO: (we think) Using a team who manually samples the videos for quality control, YouTube takes a second - HUMAN - step towards curation.

  • STEP THREE: (we think there is a clearing process). That means, that while content is filtered and scanned by people and machines, there may be a slight delay between when content appears on YouTube first, and when it becomes available in the youtube kids app.

But there is hope! Your channel and ALL of it’s content, can be considered for YouTube Kids!

Q: How Can My Channel for YouTube Kids? Can you make a youtube channel on kids youtube? How do I add my youtube channel to youtube kids?

YOUR CHANNEL AND ALL OF IT’S CONTENT CAN BE CONSIDERED FOR YOUTUBE KIDS

Yes, your video content can be included in the YouTube Kids app, as long as you follow the guidelines and your content qualifies for the app.

Q: Hey Joanne, how do you know all this about YouTube?

We know because YouTube Said So. As your youtube marketing manager, I stay on top of youtube trends, survey and data they put out about YouTube and YouTubers.

We work with great brands that are on Youtube Kids. We work with YouTubers who are monetizing their channel.

But here is a little bit more from YouTube:

For a channel or video to be included in the YouTube Kids app, the content must be family-friendly. For videos to be eligible to be a part of the app, create videos that foster positive interests, promote development and education, and inspire families to engage with each other and the real world.
