    My friend and I started a youtube channel about certain game uploading highlights and replays. I have a youtube partner account and we love playing this certain game and that's when the idea comes to me, why not try to make money out of it. Now we already have a total of 50 videos in our yt channel and have a total of almost 20k views. Here are a screenshot of our stats:

    Now I know this 20k views is not that much. I am just worried that maybe I am doing something wrong here that's why I am asking for advice if this is just normal.
    Some questions:
    1. Maybe I need to reach 100k views first before I can see any earnings?
    2. Maybe it's better to be in a youtube partner network than being a youtube partner myself?
    3. Or it simply comes down to people in this niche don't click ads?

    Also I am thinking that one of the reason of this is because of the country geographics:

    Can anyone give me some insight?

    Thank You

    Are you partnered with a network that allows video game videos?

    If you're just partnered with Youtube/Google, and uploading copyrighted content (video games), than you wont be making any money. You also might get a copyright strike If you enable monetization on videos you do not own copyright to (which would mean most gaming networks wouldn't partner you). Sounds like you have not enabled monetization on your videos If there Is no estimated earnings showing up.

    If you are partnered with a network that allows games, you will have to check with them. You might also not have monetization enabled on your videos.

    - No I am a youtube partner.

    No copyright worries here. The game I am uploading clearly said in their TOS that it is allowed to upload gameplay videos on youtube. They even mentioned in their TOS that it is allowed to monetize it with youtube partner account. So no worries in here. And my videos are monetized.

    Did you even read my post before you post here? It looks like to me that you are just trying to increase your post count with this comments of yours. I told you I am a youtube partner.

    My god... Am I not making it clear here? I am not partner with any network. I am a youtube adsense partner. I can login to google adsense to check my earnings but the problem is there is no earnings yet.

    yeah I'm wondering the same thing all u said above is ur partnered with Youtube, even if ur partnered and monetized ur videos if u don't connect ur adsense to your Youtube Channel you will not earn anything and after u connect ur adsense u need to wait 1 week before your earnings will show up. + Youtube Report is 2 days delayed

    From your stats it's obvious that you bought these views. You can't earn money this way. (actually you can but it's not that easy as you are trying to do)

    Now this is actually what I am missing. Thanks a lot. I created my adsense account through that youtube account that's why I thought it should be automatically connected to my adsense account. Never thought I still need to do that manually. This is my first time trying to make money out of youtube partner so totally noob here. Thanks! You pretty much solved my problem.

    No I'm not. Yes I am noob when it comes to making money as a youtube partner but I know this kind of things. All of that views are legit. Not even a single of that view is bought views.
