    Simple Question ...

    I've recently started making money on youtube and have earned a 2nd strike ... I'm not able to edit or view any of my analytics until the 2 week ban has ran its course... so I quickly made another account and started linking to that single video by using the youtube android app which still lets me edit my videos on the first account.

    Long story short, I'm about 1k views in (legitimate) and am wondering when I can link the adsense account in?

    You can do it straight away on any account in good standing. Just go to Youtube Settings on your profile and you'll see the monetization tab on the left of the screen.

    Definitely not there ... I think you have to have a minimum amount of views to get it

    You can open up a new account and start monetizing straight away. Are you sure the account you are using is in good standing? Try opening up a new account to check.

    Hmm, that's really strange.

    Just make a test account to see if the option is there, it will only take a couple of minutes. The Monetization option should be under the "Channel Settings" title on the bottom left of the screen.

    Ok Snurper, we were both wrong and both right.

    So turns out if you dont choose a country of origin, it will automatically put you into Afghanistan (first place on pulldown).

    In order to get to this option you need to click on My Channel, and the on the right hand side you will see an Edit link (under 7 pt font). I've attached a picture just in case you cant find it.

    Click on that and change the tab to the US and you are set.

    Officially Solved.
