    Since I am completly new to IM, I want to start simple and to create a few channels where I will just reupload videos and after some time monetize them with adsense.

    My question is whether it´s worth using black hat methods (editing and reuploading non- creative common videos, buying fake likes / views / comments etc) with an adsense account or whether it´s better to keep it clean.

    As I undestand it right now, black hat is better for fast, but risky income, while white hat is better for slow, but stable income. Since you have to wait at least 1 month for your adsense payments, and since YT videos are a good longterm income, isn´t it better to play it safe and to avoid the risk of getting your channel or your adsense acc banned, even if it means less money short term? Of course you could set up a business adsense acc, so in case you got banned, you just open another business acc. But you still have to start from the bottom again, and there is a big chance that you get banned before you even see your first money of your channel. Furthermore, G and YT are improving their algorithm all the time, so what works today, may not work tomorrow.

    Therefore I think it is better to use black hat methods in other fields, where the risk of getting banned is less likely or where you are getting paid faster than with adsense (same counts for adsense and websites imo).

    What are your thoughts?

    You seem to be bent on using white hat methods. So why are you even asking?

    Not really. actually I am interested to test out black hat methods, too. Not sure though in which ways and on which platform.

    I asked because I hope to get an answer from people, who have experience in black hat methods on YT and can say, whether you can make money longterm with it and adsense without getting banned or whether it´s better nowadays to you use adsense for white hat methods only.

    I use Blackhat methods but not with AdSense. I use them with CPA and PPD.

    If you would like to take risk, try blackhat abd you can start earning instantaneously. If you want to be under radar, try only white hat methods.

    That was my point: Since adsense does not pay instantly, it does not make much sense (no pun intended) to use it for blackhat imo.

    Then run a PPD i don't see why you want to go through the process of earning through adsense in the first place although their cpc is higher than most ads. You could read up on PPD journeys to follow along and see how people are doing it. I suggest you look at the Journey section to get started.

    Which other ads can you recommend and why?

    Yes, I planned to get started by reading the best youtube journeys, the top rated threads of the youtube forum, read a few ebooks on youtube, so that I will focus on one thing until I "master" it and have a decent income. Then I will study another field, like creating websites for example. About 10% of time I spend for IM, I will try out the methods which are posted in the making money forum, so that I don´t get bored studying the same thing all the time. Also, I can explore other money making opportunities and hopefully find a lucrative one somewhen. I guess it all comes down to try trial and error, especially in the beginning.
