Can I use AdSense to monetize a YouTube video I previously used through BH methods?

    I currently have a new YouTube channel I have not linked to an AdSense account yet. I will be uploading 5-10 high quality videos (animations I make myself).

    I am planning to use some Fiverr services that help rank 2-3 of my videos on the first page of YouTube for my keywords to get it started and then hopefully there will be natural traffic coming in. (Also, if anyone has another other ideas, that would be greatly appreciated!)

    My question is:

    Will it then be safe to link my AdSense account and start monetizing those videos? Or will Google be able to detect I used fake views/likes/backlinks to gain the initial traffic and it would be dangerous to my AdSense account?

    it is possible that google will review the videos after some time or after they start generating more revenue. At that time it is possible that they will see the methods used to bring the video to the top. If your going to do this make sure that you use manual promotion methods along side your automated services to reduce that chance of getting any of your accounts into trouble. This is not full proof nor are any fiver services. Proceed with caution.

    Honestly, I wouldn't. It'd be a risk to your Adsense account. When it comes to monetization with youtube, unless you've covered your tracks, it's best to play it safe.

    Thank you for your advice!

    Would it be safe to use Adsense monetize videos that I had not used BH methods to promote? And other subsequent videos? And what does "covered your tracks" mean??? How do you do that?

    Don't use blackhat methods to take your monetized videos up, it will eventually backfire and I am sure your adsense account is too dear to lose.

    They wouldn't be monetized while the blackhat methods are running (fake views, etc)....but will the backlink service I purchase count as a blackhat method?

    For adsense, manual promotion is the best way

    Even if I connect my AdSense account after the BH methods and I do not monetize those particular videos?
