I wanted to get started making youtube videos again sometime this year, once I start the process to get weight loss surgery. I might be able to start that process in a year as someone I know has offered to loan me half the money to pay for it.
To make money on YouTube requires an Adsense account.
The Google Adsense procedures are frustrating and impossible. The website associated with my Adsense account was denied, so I wanted to change the website, to my new domain vickionline.com, they have no options for that as you can read here so many others have the same issue.
I tried the link someone provided further down on that page, it won’t work.
Really I just want to associate a Adsense account to my Youtube page so I can monetize my videos, no website associated. New or old.
They say it’s possible in theory, but it’s not. They say log into the Youtube account, Apply for Youtube Partners, click monetization, click CHANGE, you can associate a different Adsense account to it.
I have looked at ALL options and the only way to do that is create a whole new GOOGLE account to associate with Youtube, BUT it cannot have your old name, phone , address attached to it or your Adsense account will be denied.
How do you get paid if it’s not in your name?
They don’t give any options. I have searched multiple forums. They think they have solutions but they don’t. They have you running in circles.
UPDATE (after several hours):
Awesome! I kept screwing around with different things and magically I now have a Adsense account. Somehow I got it to link to my youtube account now.
However, Youtube has disabled Monetization for my account and they have a whole website dedicated for the possible reasons this may occur.
I suspect they disabled monetization for me because I do not meet the criteria to be approved to join the YouTube Partner Program
The YouTube Partner Program (YPP) lets creators monetize their content on YouTube.
Previously, the requirement to join the YouTube Partner Program was 10,000 lifetime views (My Lifetime views are currently at 197,738).
But as of January 16, 2018, once a channel reaches 4,000 watch hours in the previous 12 months and 1,000 subscribers it will be reviewed to join the program.
I haven’t made any videos in 4 years and regular updates is supposedly how you grow your channel. I currently have 338 subscribers and 2,662 watch minutes in the previous 12 months.
So yep don’t qualify for monetization because as of TODAY they changed the rules. I can’t catch a break.
You can keep uploading original content and building your audience on YouTube even if you’re not in the YouTube Partner Program however. Just won’t make any money till I reach the threshold of : 1000 subscribers and 4,000 watch hours in past 12 months.
Without trying, I have lost 8 pounds since my last weigh in , in October 2017. I eat crappy as heck. But I do regularly moderate how many calories I am eating. Also I haven’t been drinking much alcohol , be lucky to get a alcohol drink once a month or every other month..
I wonder if I ate less calories cause of NutriSystem? Hmmm… well I got rid of NutriSystem but still tracking my calories via MyFitnessPal.
