    Hi all,

    I've got this youtube channel that still generates decent traffic. The problem is that monetization has been disabled months ago. Is there any way I can still make some money out of this traffic? I've read about putting links in the description or annotations. What's the best method for this? How does it work? Will you be paid for a click or?

    Please advice me on this

    Thanks in advacne

    How many videos are in the channel? Perhaps you sell the channel

    What would be the purpose of selling it? I'd rather make money with it myself instead of letting someone else do that for a little fee

    yea that's what I was thinking but what could I promote. I read about these affiliate sites etc. but they mostly seem to be USA only. I live in Europe, any ideas?

    And how do you intend to do that? I think we both know that's a dead end

    yes USA is top paying country but your europe also has some good paying countries like france, germany etc, if your traffic is from these good paying companies you can bank hard . ODB

    No, this is bad advice. If he does this, sooner or later his videos will get flagged down and removed for violating YouTube's policy against spam, scams, and commercially deceptive content. He could lose his precious channel just for a few crappy dollars from PPD, affiliates etc.

    yeah well I don't know that's right. That's why I came here. There must be a way since you say channels can be sold. How much would a channel with this amount of traffic (including a few thousand subs) cost you think?

    That depends on many factors e.g the niche, number of videos etc. Why? Are you looking to sell?

    Well maybe, depends on the price. I don't know if you could indicate a common price for a channel like this. Or I just leave the channel alone and wait for monetization to be restored (although i'm not sure if it ever will be restored, despite their 'six months'), since it used to give an easy 500-1000$/month

    Why did you get banned from monetization anyway?

    I suppose due to some worldwide id blocks.. I don't know for sure tbh. I had no copyright strikes and the account is in good standing

    My advice: Sit tight and wait for your account to regain monetization after six months. Meanwhile, you can continue making quality videos in order to grow your fan base and build your channel further.

    Can you create a website with that theme and link all your videos to that site?
    Monetize the website with adsense, paid memberships, info products, affiliate links, amazon links or anything else that works in the niche. This way you control your assets and use youtube to drive traffic.
