Following are my recent earnings from YouTube Adsense.. Not huge earnings, but considering the fact that I'm doing zero work other than the initial effort taken, this might attract interest for many of you out there. So I will make it simple.. Here's what I have done.. 1. Find a hot topic under tech niche (tech niche is safer compared to movies/music) from Google news. Topic should be in such a way that it should be more engaging traffic in the upcoming days than it does right now. eg: Windows 10 going to release , and when it released, its a present trend. But the topic "windows 10" will be more engaged once people started using it and getting issues/concerns. Because we want them to direct to our videos . 2. Find the respective videos on udemy/tech blogs or even in torrents. You may edit a bit and upload it. 3. If you can't monetize the video for some reason, for example, youtube asking for video ownership proof. In this case what matters is your account authority. For me, even if the video is made by someone else and even though it has watermarks, there's no questions asked and I'm able to monetize straight away. So, in order to gain account authority, just follow this: upload cam recorded videos from liveleak and try to monetize. Youtube will ask for video ownership proof as usual. In the counter form, you provide the justification like "My cousin has recorded a video for me, he's living in US"!! Make stories according to the situation. Trust me, once I have done the same thing for a private wrestling video, and they enabled monetization at last. while reviewing the video YT will come to know that its a recorded video and what we have stated in the form is matching their findings. So finally they will approve Now upload more videos from Liveleak and repeat the same. And after some uploads, they will allow monetization for all your videos at around 90-95% success rate(without review) 4. At this point, add your needed videos and say thanks & bye bye to Liveleak This time, you would be able to monetize the videos. 5. Now reach out to your video audience -> yahoo answers, forums 6. Start small adwords campaign ($10-$20 per day) and order likes/comments/favorites from seoclerks/fiverr. (remember, dont order video views) From the adwords campaign, you'll get around 2k-5k views per day for that price. 7. Add anchor keyword phrase in title as well as in description and add lengthy keyword variations in video tags. 8. Stop the adwords campaign and see the traffic rolling in I usually see first page results after this! 9. Do the same for all upcoming uploads and sky is the limit I earn from 15 videos only and not all are added to adwords campaign. Spent around $75 to earn $130+ per month for the last 1 year. I can scale it up! But I dont have time for it, have brain eating software job lol I would love to show my first page youtube results right here, but scared of Google, So I wont If anyone really interested to see it, can PM me.
