    Hey guys,
    I am starting my journey with adsense, never worked with adsense before (hope i wont get banned :p)

    There is nothing much to hide and to say.

    The idea is simple.
    Upload tons of videos in gaming related niche.

    I know i wont go anywhere just by uploading and leave it. Currently i cant do much besides of optimizing my videos (good description, title etc).
    I might consider advertising to boost my channel and videos in the future.
    The journey is already started like 8-10 days ago.

    Currently i have around 20 videos and made me $0.30.

    The niche might look saturated to you but its little different. 5 days of research showed me there are about only 8-10 channels doing exactly same.
    Some of them are 4-5 months old with 30-40 million of views. Some of them copying each others videos.

    I will upload at least 300 videos to decide if i should go on or stop. I am setting 300 minimum limit because that's what other channels have on average with that much views.
    If i wont see the result like nearly to them or i feel like it wont worth the time, I will leave it.
    I know its bad to set the giving up condition already. But i have other projects going on. And this yt thing is just an idea came up in my mind, and i wanna give it a try.
    I am not going to say "i wont stop until i make $blahblah".

    You will either see success or fail as a result of an experiment.

    Wish me Luck! and please don't hesitate to post your suggestions.

    Sure man.
    If you are in the gaming niche like those popular game walkthroughs channels, then you might have a hard time. Its too saturated.
    BTW how many total views you have?

    Gameplay with a twist

    I just connected my adsense account with my channel and enabled monetization on my videos. No need of approval.

    Thanks.
    Yes its hard, but I dig little deeper and found a sub niche where competition is low and viewers are high.

    Uploaded 4 more videos today, no change in earning.
    I discarded the idea of copying, coz i don't wanna risk my account. So all the content will be original.

    How much time do you spend in creating and editing videos?
    Good luck on the project. And if you are looking to grow like Pewdiepie or sth else then you will have to spend some years in that.

    Right now its little unclear what you actuallty after.

    cheers

    2 hrs per day.
    I am not actually focusing on making my name like pewdiepie, neither on getting tons of subscribers.
    Its all about getting millions views, it doesn't matter how many subscribers you have. Only views get you most of the money.
    I am doing this gaming niche with viral topics. I am not uploading videos about every hot games, its just related to topic whats going on.
    And those topics are not just one day trending news, they have been here like months or even years.

    With YT+Adsense, it's important to check & work on your channel Analytics (Demographics, Traffic source and Devices). It might not matter, right now, because your channel is pretty fresh but after gaining considerable views, you have to work on your best kw's to increase the view count. Good luck!

    Youtube is definitely a tough cookie! Good content is very key on YouTube.. I've got a few channels, but one related to my main niche. Good videos that I spend the time on seem to get ten times the views, videos with decent thumbnails & a quality design overall boosted this further. Need to put more time into YouTube (but sadly my niche involves me getting in front of a camera, setup time, editing, etc) really adds up.

    Good luck with the journey! :)

    Also, if they are semi-viral. Drop a few in the /r/gaming from time to time...

    What is your source for video materials? Do you create your own videos or do you use Creative Commons videos? You know that there are tons of CC videos that you can monetize on YT? You can find them in Creator Studio ----> Create ----> Video Editor ----> CC
    I have few videos from there on my channel, and they are making some $.
    I plan to open one channel and use only CC videos, just to see how high I can get.
    Good luck with your journey.

    No CC videos. I tried that thing like 2 years ago but didnt go well. You will hardly find a good video in your niche in CC collection.

    Yeah, this is what i was thinking about when i started reading your journey. Just don't forget to disable the monetization.

    Good luck.
