How to make money with youtube videos using youtube video units the specifics

I wanted to share with you ways to monetize the youtube videos that you already put on your websites/blogs. It is really easy, you have a lot of control of how things look, etc.

Here are the basics. Please note that you can only choose videos that are considered Partner videos.

1. You sign in or sign up for a google adsense account.

2. Click on the AdSense Setup Tab and you will then click on the Video units link down below.

3. You create an adsense player where you choose the specifics on what videos you want shown on your blog post. You can control the color and size of the player, the content of the video and the location in your blog where you want it to run. Like all adsense programs, you earn revenue when people click on the ads.

I've got a few examples for you to look at.

Example 1: This is a way to post a specific video. Only one video is chosen for the player.

To limit the player to only show one video, you must put the title of the video in quotes in the keywords section. Example "Exclusive Palin vs Biden debate UNCUT behind the scenes"

Example 2: This is a way to create a player that will play a number of different videos (like our series Everything Matters).

This happens when you choose the specific partner or partners listed in the channel box.

Example 3: Just another example showing a different color of the player.

I hope this opens up some opportunities for filmmakers as well as blog website owners.
