Governor of Florida opens an account on one of America’s fastest-growing video platforms
Rumble is proud to welcome Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to our video-sharing platform. A U.S. Navy veteran and graduate of Harvard Law School, Gov. DeSantis is a valued addition to our community of more than 4 million video creators and public figures.
“Gov. Ron DeSantis is a longtime proponent of free speech and has been at the forefront of the effort to demonopolize Big Tech. He understands firsthand Americans’ distrust of monolithic tech companies and the danger they pose to free expression and free markets. In fact, YouTube recently removed from its platform a video of the governor and a handful of Ivy League-educated medical experts discussing the downsides of prolonged pandemic-related lockdowns. Rumble, on the other hand, invites robust and civic dialogue on our platform, including Gov. DeSantis’ insights and expertise,” Rumble CEO Chris Pavlovski said ahead of the announcement.
Rumble is one of the most respected independent and privately owned companies in the online video-sharing platform industry and its business model is premised upon helping small and independent video creators grow their footprint. Rumble has more than 4 million small creators, with a reach of over 75 million monhtly unique users.
TORONTO, CANADA – Rumble, a video platform focused on helping over two million creators manage, distribute, and monetize their video content, filed a lawsuit today against the multinational technology company Google LLC, “for monetary damages well in excess of $2,000,000,000 that Rumble has sustained and continues to sustain as a proximate result of Google’s antitrust violations.” Because Rumble shares revenue with its content creators, this has harmed them as well.
The complaint charges, “by unfairly rigging its search algorithms such that YouTube is the first-listed links ‘above the fold’ on its search results page, Google, through its search engine, was able to wrongfully divert massive traffic to YouTube, depriving Rumble of the additional traffic, users, uploads, brand awareness and revenue it would have otherwise received.”
Using data from Google and YouTube analytics regarding views of Rumble’s original content videos on YouTube, the complaint also alleges that “Rumble lost a huge amount of revenue on the 9.3 billion views that Google wrongfully directed to YouTube with its unfair YouTube-preferencing algorithms. If even a portion of those 9.3 billion views had occurred on Rumble’s website instead of YouTube, that would have generated well in excess of 100 million additional video uploads to the Rumble platform, which in turn would have generated billions of more views on the Rumble platform, and massive amounts of additional revenue for Rumble and its content creators.”
Because Rumble has exclusive rights to original content videos, it has been able to determine that Google wrongfully self-preferences YouTube over Rumble. For example, even if the Google search term specifically asks for “dog videos on rumble,” Google lists unrelated YouTube videos ahead of Rumble.com’s listings. And, even if the search term asks for an exclusive Rumble video by its exact title, for example, “Baby preciously cuddles cat for nap time,” the Google search page still self-preferences YouTube, even though Google has publicly stated that it gives preference to and “elevates” original reporting in its search results.
Rumble is one of the most respected independent and privately owned companies in the online videosharing platform industry and its business model is premised upon helping small and independent video creators.
“As stated in the complaints filed by the Department of Justice and many state Attorneys General against Google, Google uses its search engine monopoly to wrongfully achieve and maintain monopolies for its many companies, and in this case, we have indisputable proof that it does so for its YouTube platform, harming competition, competitors and consumers. Google’s monopoly power is being used to unjustly and wrongfully deprive Rumble of the views, users, uploads, and consumer awareness, and the revenue for it and its content creators, that would be theirs in an un-rigged marketplace,” stated Chris Pavlovski, CEO of Rumble.
As (COVID-19) continues to spread, Rumble wants you to know what to expect from our services.
As the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread around the world, Rumble will continue to provide its services at the high levels you have come to expect.
With that said, there are three main priorities that are driving our decision making during this crucial time:
1. Keeping our people and our communities safe by implementing a work from home policy for all our team members. 2. Rumble is very focused on continuing to deliver all of our operations at the highest level. We’ve had business continuity plans in place and have designed our business, technology, and customer experience to function flawlessly in an event such as this. You remain in great hands. 3. Doing our part to help slow down and stop the spread of the virus by putting in place a global travel ban for our team members and restricting attendance to mass gatherings and events.
It is also important to note that as coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread around the world, Rumble is prepared for an unprecedented drop in CPM (cost per mille) over the next few weeks and especially through April as a result of various factors that lead to lower ad spend which will temporarily affect earnings. We know that as creators this is one of the most important aspects of working with Rumble and we are here to support you every step of the way.
For those of you cooped up at home, we will continue to post entertaining content across all our social media channels and our viral channel per usual. Enjoy, and please stay safe.

Let’s keep making Rumble the best video platform on the internet.
Hey everyone, Wojtek here from Rumble. Many people were inquiring, so I felt I should provide a little explanation on what “Rumbling” means on your Pending Videos page.
After uploading and selecting your licensing option, videos get placed into a queue. In this queue an automated technology dubbed ‘Rumble Rank’ makes a decision on the value and virality of the content you uploaded, and if our Rumble Rank ‘likes’ the content, it will be sent to our newsroom for a final decision and audit. If for any reason Rumble Rank and/or editors are not certain (possibly due to not enough data) but they see potential value in your content,it will get placed into a separate queue called ‘Rumbling’. At this point your chances are pretty good that it will get purchased/approved, but still not certain. Most people can expect a reply within two weeks while rumbling, in some cases this can take longer.
Some tips to help get your video noticed, or noticed faster:
Film in landscape mode (hold your phone sideways)
Upload the highest quality video you can.
Cut any lead up / part of the clip that is not needed.
Tell your friends to watch your clip on Rumble
I hope that helps. Feel free to leave comments and questions below, and maybe on my next post I’ll address it 🙂
After receiving feedback over the last 60 days, we have decided to ramp up our payout frequencies. We are now moving Rumble to a weekly payout schedule, every Friday as long as you make a withdrawal request in the previous week. Let me explain with further clarity inflatable sumo suits.
You make a withdrawal request of $100 on Tuesday.
You will be paid on the following Friday, 10 days later.
You make a withdrawal request of $100 on Friday.
You will be paid on the following Friday, 7 days later
If the Friday lands on a holiday in Canada, the payout will be issued on the following business day. It is very important to note that you MUST make a withdrawal request. If you fail to do so, you will not receive payment and your balance will accumulate. The minimum payout threshold will stay at $50.
