    So another one of my accounts got asked to be monetized...

    It is two weeks old and we uploaded 15 videos that I stole from another website.

    It is now a PVA - however I am still unsure about IF I should plug my adsense to the account. We already have one strike.

    I have a TON of other videos however we are planning to take it gradually and not go all out (trying to make this look legit)

    Just wondering if that account gets closed - would my other ones get closed (they are legit videos I made)

    Would they shut down my adsense account also?
    Kinda unsure what to do with this one.

    Why not try it by using separate adsense accounts?

    Google reacts to violations in their Terms of Service differently all of the time. The truth is, it depends on the mood/character of the person auditing you. Some may let you go, while others will look at your site with a magnifying glass and if they spot something, will go above and beyond to ban your account - just because they didn't get their coffee that morning.

    With that being said, never risk losing your Adsense account. Either register a second one with a new name/address (maybe a family member) OR try monetizing your site another way. There are 1000s of ways to make money, but it's just too bad Adsense seems to be #1 on almost everyone's list.

    @free youtube views: Took yer advice and got my friend to make an adsense account. Told him to split the workload together and and split profits together.

    That way I am not risking my personal account. This is an experiment of putting up 100 / 1000s of vids over a gradual period of time.

    Pretty much an experiment with YT. I know people just mass upload rake in some bucks - get banned and start over, but they only use the videos to generate traffic (from what I understand). This is just YT monetization.
