Slomo makes everything better
Monday, June 24, 2013
Anyone who’s seen a slow motion video of a
dog drinking water
elastic bands breaking a watermelon
footballs in faces
knows the age-old proverb:
slomo makes everything better
. What’s the best way to make slomo better? Let everyone make their own slomo video on YouTube.
To create a slomo video, visit the
tool or the
and apply it to one of your existing videos. You’ll get a smooth, slomo video that makes it look like it was filmed with a high-speed camera. Here’s a video reduced to 1/8th speed to give you an idea how it looks:

Celebrating 10 years of shared success
Tuesday, June 18, 2013
Ten years ago, we launched AdSense to help publishers earn money by placing relevant ads on their websites. I can still remember the excitement and anticipation as AdSense went live that first day.
Our small team huddled together in a cramped conference room, and straight away we saw that publishers were as excited about AdSense as we were.
Fast-forward ten years, and AdSense has become a core part of Google’s advertising business. The AdSense community has grown to include over two million publishers, and last year alone, publishers earned over $7 billion from AdSense. AdSense is a community that thrives because of all the content creators we are so fortunate to partner with. Their stories inspire us to do our part to make AdSense great.
On this occasion, it’s especially inspiring to hear the stories of partners who have been with us since the very beginning. Like a retiree in New Zealand who was able to pursue her dream of writing about her garden, a tech support expert in Colorado who can spend more time with his kids and a theme park reviewer who now sends employees around the world to test and review rides -- all thanks to money earned from AdSense.[a]
As part of our 10th anniversary celebrations, we hope you’ll tune into our live Hangout on Air today at 10am PDT (5pm GMT) on the AdSense +page. I look forward to joining several of our partners to share stories from the early days of AdSense, talk about how we’ve all grown since then and discuss the future for publishers and online advertising. And if you want even more 10th anniversary celebrations, just visit our AdSense 10th anniversary page at any time.

Connect your Channel with a Google+ Page
Thursday, June 6, 2013
Throughout the coming weeks, YouTube creators will begin to see the option to connect their channel with a Google+ page. Connecting with Google+ will
unlock great new features
for your channel, so we want creators to understand all of their options. When you connect a channel with Google+, the channel will have a shared name and avatar with Google+, so making the right choice is important. A couple of quick notes before starting:
If you already have a corresponding Google+ page that you’d like to connect with your channel, make sure that you've added your channel’s Google account as a
of that page.
If you don’t already have a Google+ page that you’d like to connect with, that’s fine, the linking process will allow you to easily create a new one.
Below is an example screen for my channel (Superman87), and here’s what the options mean:
This option will connect my channel with an existing Google+ page that my channel’s Google account
This option will create a new Google+ page for your channel with your existing channel name.
Choose a better name:
This option will create a new Google+ page for your channel with a different name that you specify. If you want to, you can change your name entirely, or you can make subtle adjustments to your channel username, such as adding a space or other punctuation (Superman 87).
This will link your channel with the Google+ profile on your channel’s Google account. We advise partners to link their channel with a Google+ page instead, so if you are considering using a profile instead, please
view these guidelines
To start the process right now, go to your
advanced account settings
in YouTube and click
Connect with a Google+ Page

YouTube One Channel Launching across All Channels on June 5th
Wednesday, June 5, 2013
We’ve been excited to see more than 70 million channels around the world opt in to the new YouTube One Channel during the open beta. We have integrated a lot of your feedback, including improving the What to Watch Next module and making it easier for you to create sections from playlists.
Channels that have already made the switch are experiencing several benefits. Their branding shines through in more places because Channel Art is visible on iOS apps, Android apps and TV. These channels are also getting more visits because clicks from the YouTube guide go directly to their channel pages instead of to their activity feeds.
Now that YouTube One Channel is ready for prime time, we’ll be launching across all channels on May 29th.
This means that if you have not opted in by 5th of June, your channel will be automatically and permanently moved to the new design.
If you’re ready to move to the new design today,
opt in here
Before the deadline, we’ll make sure to share several reminders so that you won’t be caught off guard. We’ve also put together tips and tricks from the
to set up your channel in the new design. It only takes a few minutes to migrate,
so start upgrading today
