      You may have to submit your pages to social bookmarking site and on feed directories. You can search here in hubpages on how to do that.

      It took me ages to implement these ads and i wish i had come here first for simple directions!

      I would like to know if any one has any success in using Youtube vid units!! I did have them on some of my blogs, but removed because of poor performance!

      I also have AdSense for search boxes on many of my blogs and have relocated them many times and never earn anything worth writing about!!

      hot dorkage, nope it doesn't have to be your own video. The videos showing ADS are coming from advertisers. Just specify the category of videos and embed the code to your site or blog.
