YouTube Officially Launched In Pakistan – Now Allows You To Earn Money Through Videos

After suffering a nearly three and a half year ban in Pakistan, YouTube was unblocked earlier this year when Google launched a localized version of the website. This gave local authorities the power to remove any content that is deemed inappropriate according to Pakistan’s standards.

But the localized version of YouTube was mostly kept quiet. You could only tell it was local because the logo showed the ‘PK’ extension.
