    Ok so im finally having some success with my videos and im getting natural steady traffic, no blackhat here, all original content, so im going for AdSense to monetize them. My question is: Should I use a separate gmail account to register the AdSense account, or should I use the same gmail account im using for my YouTube channel to set up my AdSense? I heard in the past, Google would allow several gmail/Youtube accounts for a single AdSense account, but now it doesn't and it only allows 1 AdSense account per YouTube account, so I wonder if I should use the same for YouTube or AdSense. Please help quick for im getting a ton of views that im not monetizing yet since I have doubts about this. I would also like to know, if in the future I want to join a network, would I have any problems to leave AdSense, and then come back again if the network sucks? Right now I don't see the point for a network, since all the content is original and I don't need any licenses or anything.

    It sounds like a good idea to stay with your original content. I would be apprehensive about applying any tactical approaches to generating views and activity if you already have an active and engaged community or believe you can easily build and sustain one. Buying views, likes, subscribers, etc can be a great technique when used correctly and from the right suppliers, but nothing beats a purely natural growth curve, so organic models can work very well in your situation.

    Just use the same account, and basically never compromise the integrity of that account ever with questionable tactics or strategies no matter what you read. If you want to screw around with other kinds of tests - do it on completely different accounts with no associations to the solid established one. You can make a lot of money with tons of real views over time and it will become a stable solid income center even though it might take a while to really see good daily revenues. Good luck!

    So you are saying that I use the same gmail for AdSense too? And yes, all my stuff is original, and im not going to screw up this YouTube channel, this is "the real thing" for me, all original stuff, and I have around 10k subs and around 500.000 views a month and I started like 2 or 3 months ago, it seems they are liking my stuff, and I don't even have 10 videos yet uploaded. The only "black-hatty" thing I did at the start was to add 50 gmail accounts or so I had as subscribers, give myself a couple likes and comments here and there... they are all old accounts, and I reseted my router to get different IP's. I did this because I was depressed to have 0 subs at the beginning, and so visitors wouldn't see a "0" on the subs marker. But I have now around 10K natural subscribers.., thousands of natural comments.. so you think when I apply for AdSense they are going to find out I did this? that scares me. Other than that, all the views and comments and everything is natural. I get new comments every 3 or 4 minutes, views and subscribers all the time, im happy to finally have the snowball rolling naturally. I can't wait to add my new video but im still working on it, and I want to start monetizing before I upload my new video. Also please, answer if it would be a problem in the future if I ever want to be part of a network, to go from AdSense to a network (even tho right now it seems like a stupid idea because i don't want see any benefits of choosing a network over AdSense).

    Please help, I need to figure this out before i start moneitizing. I have been recommended to use a separate gmail account for AdSense just in case, they said you don't lose anything by using a separate account so why not?

    Using a separate account won't help unless you really go to length to hide your IP etc. If you are using all white hat tactics, just sign up with the primary email and monetize as soon as possible.

    If you want to join a MCN, you can at any time even if you have AdSense enabled.

    Depending on the MCN, there are different contract periods with which you can leave the MCN. Once you have left the MCN, you can go to your regular AdSense.

    Agree using different IP's and different Id's can't help much when it comes to adsense and youtube.

    Im going insane due the contradicting advice about using 2 different gmail accounts or using the same gmail account for both Adsense and Youtube.

    Yes it's going to be all white hat, im working hard on the content, im about to hit 1 million views in total and I haven't monetized a single one yet because I don't know if I should use a different gmail to register Adsense.

    Like I said before, I don't intend to do anything stupid to ruin my channel, im talking about just in case something goes wrong by accident, because you never know with the ridiculous copyright laws nowadays, that's why I was thinking to have my Adsense account separated from the Youtube gmail. I've heard some people having problems to access their account because it used the same gmail for both Youtube and Adsense but the people that had it separated never had any problems, so just in case.

    Please hhelp, im going nuts.

    As I told you, there is no point in separating them.

    Stop thinking and sign up and start earning money.

    On what basis you are going to apply for adsense account ? For your youtube channel, right ? So it is automatically going to be your gmail account associated with youtube.
    If you already have an adsense account, you can use youtube account associated with different gmail id.

    Yes, im going to use it for Youtube, no , I don't own an Adsense account yet, and you can create the Adsense account separated for Youtube as seen here:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sz36wf2KNTc

    Reason I want to do this: I just want all the Adsense emails separated from the Youtube stuff, just to have it in order.

    I want to know if there any problems in doing this (in creating a different gmail account for the Adsense for the Youtube).

    Please someone clarify this to me because im feeling like an idiot lossing all those views im not monetizing.

    There is a point, to have the emails separated, also I have heard of people having certain problems if something goes bad with your youtube channel, so in case there aren't any problems with having them separated, I would like it this way, the thing is i dont know if there are or not any problems with having them separated.

    You can have only one adsense account.

    I think you have never applied for adsense. Generally you don't get adsesne account without a website or youtube. So here you must apply for adsense account thru your youtube account. And if approved this youtube account is going to be linked with your adsense, and so your gmail id.

    Honestly did you take the time to watch the video I posted? He is doing exactly what im talking about:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sz36wf2KNTc

    Where does this guy or me said that I want "2 Adsense accounts"? I know I can only have one.

    1 gmail account for Adsense
    1 gmail account for your Youtube (the one you are already using)

    This way, the incoming emails that you get on your Youtube gmail (which are a lot when you have an active Youtube channel) are separated from Adsense, and I still believe it's generally a better idea to have it separated from your Youtube gmail. In where does this scheme imply that you need more than one Adsense account? Actually I asked in Google forums and the same thing and a qualified poster said it's all up to preference (you can choose a different gmail for your Adsense and not necessarly use the same gmail for the Adsense that you are using for Youtube).

    Am I being clear enough or people here just don't bother to read what im saying? I mean you said "I think you have never applied for adsense." when the thread tittle is "First time ever using AdSense".. of course I have never applied.

    There are no secrets, just be creative and cater for big audiences, and have luck that the snowball effect starts.
