My 10-year-old son has a Youtube account and has been making/posting videos relating to one of his favorite hobbies. He is not getting tons of views or subscribers, but at this point has gotten enough that Youtube has invited him to join their revenue sharing program.
I would love to encourage him to make a little money at this, even if it's just a few pennies like I'm getting here on HubPages. I'm hesitant because he will have to share my adsense, correct? One account per physical address?
I'm wondering how common it is for kids who are being kids to break the rules and get their parents' Adsense accounts yanked. For example, what if his friends decide to help him out and click a bunch of his ads? Also, there are so many trolls on Youtube. If some troll posts a bunch of profane comments on his videos, would that endanger my account? So far there has been nothing going on like that, but he is a kid, as are all his friends and just about anyone who would view his videos.
I would love for him to get a taste of online entrepreneurship and make a little money. Would I be foolishly jeopardizing my account to let him join in on it? Is it impossible to get two accounts per address? If mine gets revoked over something a kid does, is it impossible to get another one? What do you guys think I should do?
My wife and I have had seperate adsense accounts for about 5 years with no problems from Google and of course we share the same address and IP number so I dont think that there would be any problems with your son having an account although I am not sure if your sons age would be taken into account. I am not sure but I think that you need to be over 18 years old for adsense......jimmy
I have always understood it is one account per household, and once yanked it will never be re-instated. I have heard of a very few people that have been reinstated, but very, very rare.
How important is adsense to you? Do you care if it is pulled? Your mention of friends clicking ads would seem to be very valid - I can't see a 10 year old never telling his friends about his endeavors, and I can't see a group of friends not clicking the ads.
Very risky, in my mind.
First, I've periodically gotten notices on my blog that I'm currently using adsense account such-and-such and would I like to switch to another adsense account. So I don't know what Google is up to these days as regarding multiple accounts. Plow through their rules line by line. Maybe they have changed things somewhat and you will get lucky. Who knows; maybe they have sub-accounts going on now?
As to using your account for your kid, I know of at least one other Hubber that is doing exactly that and tossing the resulting revenue into a college fund. As to the risks you have stated, you have a point... I'm not even sure what I would do in this situation.
