Interesting thought since Rumble can't pay you for views received before they start managing your video. If you have garnered 1000's of views before Rumble gets it and your personal YouTube channel is not monetized, then I guess you could consider it almost like "lost" views. Will be waiting to hear the answer.Good point! I upload my videos to YouTube as public. as you do or did. I don't earn money with YouTube yet, so i don't get any money before Rumble monetizes it. I think if you earn money on YouTube (have at least 1000 followers and 4000 watch hours ) you will get money of the videos from YouTube before Rumble Monetize them. If not, it is good to know what the best way is to upload your videos to YouTube ( as 'unlisted'?) before it is monetized. Maybe @Mario can give an answer on this question?
