    I pretty much consider myself a YT expert but I still don't know the answer to this question...

    I'm making $40-$50/day on spillover traffic to a video of mine from my real popular video. I have a link on that second video (the less popular one) to my content locked landing page. My more popular video has ten times the traffic the other one does but it has adsense and I make a couple thousand a month with it. Most of the views are from 'related videos' (99% of the views).

    My question is, if I pull the adsense ads, will I be 'related' to less videos and will my views decrease as a result? I know they will decrease somewhat, because 90% of 'featured video' (on the right hand side above related) are adsense partnered videos, so I'll probably lose most of the videos that I appear as 'featured video'. If I knew my views wouldn't decrease I'd pull the ads immediately in favor of a CPA link in the description and make much more than I'm making from adsense.

    Has anyone done this with a popular partnered video that could tell me what happened?

    Thanks.
