    I just got an email from Youtube that some of my videos may be eligible for Adsense. I logged in (not using the link provided just in case) and was able to 'add' my adsense to my account.

    Has anyone had any success with Youtube videos? I only have two so far - and they are connected to a couple of hubs, so it'll be interesting to see how I can monetize them and perhaps create more videos!

    When I create new videos, do I have to wait until they begin to receive traffic?

      I do, but haven't earned more than about a dollar. Unless you get a "viral video" don't expect much from Adsense on YouTube.

    Hey SimeyC, I only know one person off hand who was invited like yourself and she no longer comes to the forums. I know she is presently trying it out, but I have no clue on her results so far.

    I wish I had more for you. hmm

      Thanks! I'm a little concerned that Youtube may be more open to 'fraudulent' click patterns so I'll have to monitor very carefully and remove ads if things look weird! I don't get that many hits on my videos - perhaps 20 a day, so I don't expect big things anyway!

    I posted a couple of videos on Youtube a long time ago and out of the blue a few weeks ago and received an email saying that my account was approved for monetization. 

    I wasn't sure why they approved me until I started looking at the stats on my videos.  Apparently over time they gained a significant amount of exposure and views.

    I turned ads on for a couple of my videos and the conversion rates have been pretty good.  Like anything I'm sure it depends a lot on topic, etc.

    The requirements are somewhat strict, basically if you don't have rights to all of the content in the video then you can't place ads on it.

      Thanks! I'll have to read the fine print! I'm basically demonstrating how to use a piece of computer software.... will have to see if that infringes copyright at all!

        I'm not 100% certain but I think you can show software images as long as you provide an original voice commentary on the video.  You'll have to confirm that though..  I'm still figuring things out myself.

    I received an invitation from YouTube a few weeks ago also.  I don't have many videos up yet, but it seems as if I make a few cents a day.  I guess it adds up.  I am planning to put more videos up and see what happens then.

    I just got an invite and only have one video up so far. Too early to say how well it works.

    I was invited to link my Adsense and Youtube accounts earlier this year, because one of my videos reached over 1000 views in 24 hours. This was because it was about a current natural disaster, after the news died down, so did the views. Occasional I get impressions on it but I tried to get other videos to become popular but it is hard to achieve 1000 views in 24hours. Therefore I have focused my energy on my web consultancy smile

    Adsense only gets added to videos with more than 1000 views in 24 hours.

    I've had YouTube videos get accepted with Adsense with much less views than 1000 in 24 hours around 30 to 40 views. I think it's a new thing that YouTube are doing now enabling video ads on regularly updated channels, I now post videos every other day or so and the earnings are rising all the time!

    I haven't been on my channel recently, too busy with other projects!

    I heard you get the invite from YouTube for monitization after 6000 views.  Not sure if that's for channel, or for a single video.  And I'm not sure it's true at all.

    I got the invitation too and am giving it a go with some of my videos but thought it seemed ridiculously strict about what is OK in terms of rights. It made me realise that a majority, I would think, of videos on YouTube do not comply with these restrictions. For some reason I have never had much success with traffic or subscribers at YouTube so was a bit surprised they invited me. I need any and all money I can get though so am giving it a go!

    I got the invitation,but have yet to even see an ad appear on my videos. I do not have high hopes for this, but thought I would give it a try.

    I must have missed my email invitation. I just went on YouTube and saw that it was there. Signed up and I am on it. I haven't made any videos targeting traffic and I don't think I have made a dime.
