    I have been looking for this answer everywhere and can't seem to find a clear answer anywhere. My question is, if I had like 20 YouTube accounts where I uploaded youtube videos and had them all connected to Adsense monetizing the videos and then one of my accounts gets banned for having 3 copyright strikes or anything else, does my Adsense account then get banned? I don't want to have all of my 20 accounts useless that are all linked to my Adsense if one gets banned and my whole Adsense gets banned in turn.

    Any suggestions or info on this would be greatly appreciated!

    Yes it would; it would be breaking adsense TOS.

    Okay and you're 100% sure of this? If I linked multiple YouTube accounts to my Adsense and just one of the YouTube accounts is banned, it then gets the Adsense account banned also?

    I had my YT account banned because of strikes (I have not used adsense on the channel), my adsense account stayed alive.

    Well, my question is for YouTube accounts that are monetizing videos through Adsense and then are taken down. If it's not linked to adsense and gets banned, I don't see why they would suspend your adsense.

    Was your Adsense account linked to your YouTube account that got banned though? Were you monetizing videos, then it got banned and your Adsense stayed alive? That's my only question.

    Only way to know would be to wait it out.

    Problem is, with the method I'm about to start, I'd have tons of account stacked up and if I was monetizing them all and one account being banned caused my Adsense to be banned and no longer was earning from all the accounts, it doesn't make it worth it.

    Thanks, but unfortunately that's not the concern. If your adsense account was being used to monetize your videos and it wasn't banned, that would have been perfect. I guess I'll just have to wait until someone knows.

    You will get banned, defo. The only way to avoid is when you get 1 strike, put the videos to private (if they are all "ehem dodgy" ) and just keep the other channels running. After the six month strike has run out, reintroduce your strikedchannel. Maybe not perfect, but an option.

    Several of my youtube accounts got banned and ALL were associated with the same adsense account. The adsense account is still alive and kicking (about 5 months after the last ban now) and was never affected by the ban. Seems like G treats youtube accounts and adsense accounts as two different things.

    Your adsense will be banned but on YT only and your earnings on your other YT accounts will be affected. Here's what happened to me. I have 3 YT accounts 1 has copyright strike and the other one has 1 community guideline strike. The strikes happened last January and March but just last week I noticed that all monetized videos on my 3rd account are not earning even though it's monetized. I have 75k views on 1 of my videos but I don't have earnings even a single penny and all earning reports are just 0. And when I checked my adsense report for April there are not Hosted Adsense earnings and YT earnings. I also noticed the my 2 YT account that has strikes are still earning but the earnings did not show up on my adsense reports. My blog that use the same adsense are no problems.
