    Sorry if this is a dupe post! I try to search the forums, but maybe my question is too broad.

    I wanted to know if you monetize videos on a new channel, but do not link adsense until a later date, then later link your adsense after accumulating ad revenue from those videos, will the revenue earned from the start of monetization be added to adsense on the next youtube payment cycle? Or is a monetized video without the linked account just throwing away revenue.

    I appreciate any info regarding this

    You may begin earning money from your videos without linking to an AdSense account once you've opted in your account for monetization, but you will not be able to access your earnings analytics or get paid until you do so.

    Thank you very much. I just wanted to be assured it would at least save the information prior to linking, I was thinking about waiting a month or so before adding adsense on to test the waters on this set of videos, before jeopardizing my adsense account. ty again
