Setup Google Adsense – Make Money Blogging & YouTubing
hello earthlings welcome to this video so in today’s video I will show you how to set up a Google Adsense account for your blog or YouTube channel step-by-step now there are two ways that you can set up an adsense account you can either do it through Adsense directly or you can do it through the YouTube route however I find that the YouTube browsers easier and it’s going to have a YouTube channel to promote your blog posts as well so this is why I recommend doing it this way now if you have a blog post you can easily add your website to absence after completing this process now the whole bit get started there’s a few questions that I would like to answer just to avoid any confusion now number one if you’re setting up your adsense account solely for YouTube you don’t need to have a thousand subscribers to monetize your videos however since the beginning of April you’ll need to have at least 10,000 views in total on your channel to be able to monetize your videos so this is a new rule that was introduced by YouTube number two yes you need to be 18 years and older to set up an adsense account so if you’re under 18 years old then get a guardian or a friend or relatives to help you set up accents sometimes you do ask is Google taking money from me or are they paying me money Google Adsense pays you money for content that you post on your YouTube channel and on your blogs whereas Google AdWords this is where you pay Google in order to create ads to display on other people’s websites or YouTube so this is the difference now YouTube places app on your YouTube videos automatically you don’t have to do that whereas if you have a blog you need to manually put the ads on your blog and I’ll show you how to do that in this video and the final thing is you’ll need to make at least $10 to be able to verify your adsense account and also link your bank account details to Google Adsense so now that we have clarified all this let’s get started now I do recommend that you use either Google Chrome or Mozilla not Internet Explorer to set up your Google Adsense because I’ve had a lot of people complaining that when they use Internet Explorer to set up their absence account it doesn’t work so use Mozilla Oh Google Chrome to set it up first thing that you need to do is create a gmail email address so I’m going to just go to Gmail signup so I’m typing that in the search area here and here the first link create your Google account sign in click on that I do recommend that you use legit information because you know who is going to send you a pin and all of that stuff if they’re your employer so make sure you use legit information okay so I’ve just completed the form and there’s just one thing I would like to point out and this is your current email address now when you’re filling out this part here make sure to use a legit email address so if it’s one that has already been discredited by YouTube in the past then don’t use that make sure you create a new email address first with hotmail yahoo or whatever and then put that in there so once you’ve completed this form hit next step of course it is a good idea to read through the terms and conditions so I do recommend that and once you’ve done that then click on I agree so you’ve basically overcome the first hurdle and if you go up here to the top right hand corner and hit this icon here with the boxes you can see that you’ve already got a YouTube channel you’ve got Maps your Google Drive account and lots more google applications it’s pretty awesome that’s pretty much what you have to do okay so next thing we want to do is we want to go to our YouTube channel go to YouTube here now it says here to sign in again so just click on sign in and it will automatically assign you in because you’ve already completed that first step next thing we want to do is go to my channel alright so it’s asking to use YouTube as green pepper so yes we let’s do that obviously your name will display here through a channel voila this is how easy it is to set up new YouTube channel I mean it couldn’t be easier make sure it took me five minutes to do this okay so the next step I’m not going to add all of the fancy shenanigans here if you want to know how to set up your YouTube channel in about 10 minutes I’ve created a video on this so check it out in the description box now the reason why I recommend that you upload a video before we continue with linking our YouTube channel for Adsense is that we can then monitor if our video is monetized or not so I do recommend that you upload at least one short video it can be a minute long or half a minute long whatever so that’s what I’m going to do now I’m going to go up here to upload going to go here select file and I’m just going to choose a video on my computer okay so I’m selecting this short videos about 5 seconds long open so my video has finished uploading and now going to publish it ok so the next thing we want to do is just go to our video managers so down here where it says video manager click on that and this is the area where all of the magic happens so here on the left hand side corner so the next thing we want to do is click on channel and the first step is to verify our account so we’re going to do that now let’s verify our account here so click on verify you can either get YouTube to call you with an automated voice message or you can ask them to text you the verification code I usually choose the second option here so text me the verification code so I’ve just received the verification code which I will add into this area here and that’s pretty much it that’s the first step done you verified your account so click continue so the next step is to monetize our videos so what we need to do is to click on this and able button here where it says monetization just click on that and able next step is to well apply for monetization so let’s start click on start here of course it is a good idea to read through the Terms & Conditions so once you’ve done that main thing is not to use copyright material and if we send you know it’s important to create content that is advertised friendly as well so no content that have obscene language violence if you need more information on the YouTube guidelines I will link it down in the description box ok so once you’ve read through the Terms & Conditions you can click yes yes yes click all of these boxes and then click I accept alright so you’ve done the first step which is YouTube Partner Program Terms accepted number two final for absents alright so click site now if you need extra information about how all you need to be to set up adsense or how long it takes for your application to get reviewed then you can go ahead and click on any of these hyperlinks here.
so now we’re going to click on the “next” button and now we’re going to click on the “sign in” button, rather than create account.
I find this service really important because a many observe that when they click on create accounts it takes them someplace else and they have other problems.
so click on sign in and use your new or existing google gmail email address that you’ve just created to follow the process really so click sign in and what we’re doing here now is we’re linking YouTube with Adsense so it says your website as you can see it’s automatically added my youtube link here so I didn’t have to do that manually and I’m hoping that works for you as well that’s another reason why I recommend that you choose the option sign in rather than create account content language English is fine so save and continue so I’ve completed my personal information I’ve got my time zone which is my Robie if you can’t find your time zone here and choose something that is close to your time zone because it can be a bit tricky to find your time zone in here fine anyways I’m an individual so I’ve chosen individual got my address here telephone number really important that you put here your telephone number because you will need to verify your Google Adsense account in future or for anything like that you know you want to have your own test Maron here that you can use to verify your account in the future I think like that now for Isis email preferences I’m just going to click on no here but schools if you’re interested in any of these then feel free to click yes and I’ll submit my application fingers crossed and you get to the next step next thing again you’ve got terms and conditions so again you know read through them and then once you’re happy click on yes I’ve read and accepted agreement and accept so the next step is complete which is your Adsense Association so number three we need to set up monetization preferences okay so let’s start and here it says monetize all existing and future videos yes that sounds pretty good to us I think so let’s see so as you can see in test here upon reaching 10,000 views your channel is automatically reviewed to make sure that it complies with the YouTube Partner Program terms and our Community Guidelines will email you with a decision within a week so you can expect to get an email from YouTube from Google Adsense after you’ve reached 10,000 views so now that we have named our YouTube channel to Google Adsense the next step that we need to do is to go to our Google Adsense account and add our website so we can either sign into our Google Adsense account through this link here which was sent to us by email or another way to get to it is if we open a new tab just type in the new tab Google and then type in the search area Adsense and here at Google Adsense click on that be aware that an already logged in so I don’t need to complete login details again okay so as you can see my application is currently in review and I won’t be able to link my website details to Google Adsense as of yet however I’m expecting this to change in a couple of hours to a day so it’s the next day I’ve just checked my Adsense and I can now access my absence now there are some things that you do need to be aware of so what I recommend is only submit your blog post to Google Adsense for monetization once you have round about 20 to 30 people visiting your site on a daily basis number to your blog articles need to be at least 500 words in length so if your blog articles are less than 500 words usually then you are most likely going to get this screw from Google Adsense also all of your content needs to be original if you’ve copied content and put it on your website then you’re most likely going to get disapproved as well and finally your content needs to be advertising or friendly so it whistle there all of these things in mind so I’m just at the Google homepage area so I’m going to type in the search area Adsense mind you I’m already logged in with my gmail email address so I don’t have to read login then I’m going to click on Google Adsense here say hello to your new home page so this is the dashboard area of your Google Adsense account and what we want to do now is link our website to this account here and in order to do that what we need to do is go here to the left hand side corner and click on settings and then click on my site okay and then what we can do is click on this plus icon here and this is where we can add a new website blog post anything like that so it says here please enter the URL of the site that you would like to add so I’m just going to put my website just put in the URL of your website and add site that’s it boom so as you can see it’s already been approved straight away if you’re starting all this new then it probably will take a couple of days to a week or even longer for Adsense to approve your website the reason why mine is approved straight away is because this absence account is linked to my other adsense account so what you need to do now is wait a couple of days to a week maybe even longer depending on your content on the website and just keep checking your gmail email address to see if you’ve been approved or the approved once you have been approved oh this is what you need to do to put AdWords on your website so let me show you how to do that now so in order to place ads on to our blog post or website what we need to do is go here to the left-hand sidebar and click on my ads and once your website has been approved this is what you should see so then click on new ad unit and we’re going to give it a name I’m going to call it ad 1 now as you can see you’ve got here some recommended sizes by Google Adsense so you can choose any of these if you like the one that I usually go for on my website so what I put on my widget area let me just show you as an example so this is my widget area here and as you can see this is the ad that has been placed on my widget area here and this ad in particular is the rectangular 250 by 250 square ad so that’s usually what I put on my widget area it really depends on your website and how big your widget area is so you may have to play around with the sizes to see which one fits I’m going to select this one here Mel however I want to point out as well that what you can do is you can also place banner ad on your website so banner ads go right across like this like a banner and you can choose those here so as you can see it says horizontal banner so you’ve got all of these different sizes that you can choose from as well to place banner ads on your website so feel free to play around with these different sizes I’m going to just go here for the rectangular 250 by 250 so I’m going to select that I’m going to leave this as it is text then display ad so that just means you’ve got text and some image here as well showing so expand display here alright so we’ll leave that now you can also modify the text ad style to do that click on the arrow that is pointing to be right and then click on copy and edit again just give it a name I’m going to call it ad one and if you want to change the text color click in the middle of the color box here and then choose whatever you fancy I’m just going to go for purple just for demonstration purposes and you can really play around with all of these different colors I’m just going to leave it as is and save if you want you can choose back up ads which means that if a suitable ad is not available for your website YouTube will choose some back up ad for your website I usually don’t choose this option I just leave it as show blank space but it’s really up to you and what you want to do and then once you’re happy save and get code alright so what I usually do is change this option to synchronous rather than asynchronous I find that whenever I choose asynchronous it doesn’t display the ad doesn’t display on my website but sometimes it does display so you may have to again play around with both of these options I’m just going to copy this and then head over to my website so as you can see this is the dashboard area of my web press website I’m going to place the ad as a widget again on the widget area so I’m going to go to appearance widgets let’s hope this works ok so I’m going to select the text option I’m just going to drag that up to my right-hand sidebar right to the top here and I’m just going to place it there ok next thing I’m going to paste the code that I’ve just copied into this area into this blank area here I’m not going to give it any title and then I’m going to save so let’s just close that here and if i refresh and voila here is the advert displayed on our right-hand sidebar now if you’re having difficulty here and your advert doesn’t show what I recommend is trying the asynchronous code and just copying that into the widgets area if it still doesn’t show then just give it a couple of days it could be that you know it just takes some time for it to show and also keep checking your Gmail email address for any updates that Google access might be sending you if you want to put the advert into a blog post like this one for example what you need to do is again just copy the code and then go to your blog post let’s say I want to put it in this one here I’ll just go to edit post and then what I need to do is into the visual I click on text you simply paste the code wherever you want to put that advert and then you click on update and now if I view my post it should show in my blog post as well okay so if I scroll down here it goes so here is the advert now displayed in my blog post although I do recommend putting a banner ad in this area here I think it looks a lot more professional so this is how to set up a Google Adsense account for your
