YouTube Advertising Formats: The Essential Guide

YouTube advertising and monetization of the videos on your channel through the YouTube Partner program is available in just about every country these days. Yet picking the right ads for your YouTube Videos can make a huge difference in your earning potential.

Wait – you mean you haven’t even started monetizing your YouTube channel yet? Ok, I’ll take things slow so you don’t miss anything.

Look guys, here’s the deal:

People always ask me to take a look at their blogs and give them my advice about how they can get more traffic or how they can reduce their bounce rate. 90% of the time when I visit their blogs the first thing I see is AdSense.YouTube ADVERTISING formats

I mean there’s AdSense in the header,

AdSense is displayed above the content of the blog post,

AdSense flashing over on the sidebar….

You know what I’m talking about right?! My point is with all those ads all over the place there’s no wonder some blogs have such a high bounce rate and no wonder people visit your blog one time and never return.

Have you ever heard this saying? “It’s time to flip the script”

Time for You to Take Advantage of YouTube Advertising

Recommended: Marketing and Monetizing on YouTube with Anson Alexander

Take those flashing Google AdSense blocks down from your blog and put them up where they will get more clicks – on YouTube!

Talk about having your cake and eating it too – what you need to do is upload some interesting videos up on YouTube, join the YouTube Partner program, connect your AdSense account and you’ll earn more in AdSense Revenue during one month then you can earn using flashing AdSense banners on your blog.

Trust me on that one :)

Ok, now that we got that out of the way, here’s the deal on how to monetize YouTube videos.
When it comes to a successfully monetizing your content on YouTube, the most important thing you need to do is have good titles and meta data in the description and tags of your video – the same way you have them on your blog posts. Keep in mind that YouTube is the number two search engine on the planet so why not take advantage of it. To top it all off, YouTube provides free hosting for your videos too (which is nothing to sneeze at by the way).

Get familiar with the different ways you can make money on with YouTube monetization and take advantage of the opportunity to earn money from the content you upload to your YouTube channel – just take a look at this video I recorded called  How to Make Money On YouTube with AdSense Advertising

In the video, I cover the following topics:

  • Commercials and YouTube Advertising formats
  • How to turn on video monetization
  • What are YouTube display ads
  • What are TruView in-stream ads and how to turn them off
  • What are Call to Action Overlays (I learned about those from James Wedmore)
  • How to add tags from YouTube suggested tags

Get Started with YouTube Videos for Advertising

If you watched the video, you’ll remember that I admitted to making a huge mistake where with the SEO of my videos is concerned. I was using the wrong tags! It’s easy enough for me to fix that by following the relevant suggestions from YouTube so I can promote my content more effectively on the platform.

YouTube no longer displays the video tags to users on the site. Here’s a tip to reveal the tags: Use the VidIq Extension for Chrome to see the tags for all YouTube videos. 

What about you, have you made the same mistake with your video tags? Let me know in the comments if you’re ready to get started with monetizing your videos and taking advantage of YouTube Advertising formats.

UPDATE: Block Ads From Appearing On your YouTube Videos

Google added an option for us to block specific advertisers from appearing on our YouTube videos. This is something we were able to do for our websites and blogs for several months. Log into your AdSense account and go to “Allow & Block Ads”.

block ads from YouTube

On the sidebar look for “More Products” and then “Content Hosts” next you can enter the URL’s of any AdSense advertisers you want to block from appearing on your YouTube videos.

Full Transcript for YouTube Advertising Video:

Hello everyone my name is Ileane Smith and I’m with Basic Blog Tips dot com. My goal is to help you build a better blog.

Hey Guys Ileane Smith here today I want to talk to you about monetizing your YouTube videos As you may know there’s three different types of ads that you can display on your YouTube videos.

The first kind is what’s called a Display Ad. And that’s the ad that appears over on the side of your video it’s usually a three hundred by two fifty and be perfectly honest with you there’s nothing you can do about, there’s no control you have over those ads. They will be there whether you earn additional income from them or not those are the display ads.

The other kind of ad is called a call to action overlay. Well really it’s called a – sorry I gotta look at my notes – an Overlay InVideo. James Wedmore is the one who told me about those ads and I really like James Wedmore so I’m gonna call it the Call To Action InVideo Overlay.That’s kind of like a hybrid term that I just made up.

The other ad.. The third ad – wait a minute gotta look at my notes again, hang on it’s called the True View instream ad. Now those are the ads that will play before your video and the person who’s watching the video gets the opportunity too stop or skip the ad after five seconds ok so those are the three different types of ad that you can have to monetize your YouTube videos.

So let’s take a closer look at how they work.Youtube Advertising

When you upload a video to YouTube you’ll see there’s three tabs for information that you need to fill out. The first one is for basic info the second one is the one we’re going to talk about today which is the Monetization Tab.

Now by default it’s not checked off so the in order to monetize your video you’re gonna click that on and here are the choices that I mentioned to you earlier the overlay the True View and it tells you right here that the display ads are shown by default and it gives you a little description hover over there…this is if the video contains at paid product placement and if it does then you go ahead and check that off. And this also gives you a little description let me scoot over here so you can see that of what the True view InStream ads are and the call to action overlay now let me just show you an example –

I have one video that I added the call to action overlay and that’s this one right here and it was for the SEOPressor plugin and I actually set up an ad for it this ad will – you could upload an image and you can put – you have a very limited amount of characters that you can add in here and then the link. Now this link will take you probably too my sales page for this. Actually I have this link set to go to my blog for the article I probably need to change that to the affiliate link but that’s ok alright. So this is a review that I did of the SEOPressor plugin so clearly I need to make better use of those call to action overlays. Back over here on the YouTube home page and let’s get an example of the True View InStream ad for some reason at that’s a tongue-twister for me. Notice how it gives you the countdown of the advertisement as well as giving you the countdown over here to the five-second mark when you can skip and clearly it tells you that you can skip the ad.

Now the way this works you have to understand that someone who sees this ad and continues watching it they’re really an engaged person and they probably will still continue to watch your video as well. So don’t get put off because those ads are there now the thing is if they decide to skip the ad then the advertiser doesn’t have to pay Google and therefore you don’t get paid.

So the only time you get paid is when someone actually watches and then hopefully they’ll go on and watch your video as well so it’s kind of a toss up there maybe they might get distracted you know it’s – it’s kinda hard to say still give yourself the opportunity to have these ads show there because sometimes they really will be relevant.

Let’s talk about ads being relevant. Recently, YouTube made a change where your tags won’t show under and your videos. Now this was a little disappointing for me and I’m sure for some others because what we were told as one of the SEO tricks to do to get our videos ranked was to find popular videos and then copy their tags. Well I think YouTube got little annoyed at that because as always some people abuse it and people are putting tags that really didn’t have anything to do with their video or their video was only maybe remotely related to what the tags where. So what I have decided to do is because now that I know a little bit more about how this advertising thing works people that are taking out the ads they’re not looking for video that’s talking about Hidden Backlinks from YouTube in Google Webmaster Tools.

They’re looking for something that’s a much broader category and let’s just go and see what YouTube suggests for me to use for tags because you can still see the tags from the back end okay I’m over in the video manager now and I’m on the edit page for that same video and I admit – I realized that I’m making a huge mistake here with the tags that I’m using. For example for this video YouTube is suggesting tags for me to use and I’m just completely ignoring what they’re saying. Well I’m going to stop doing that.

Here this is about YouTube so make sure I add that
it’s a software tutorial yep
it’s about marketing yes
it’s not really about cameras
is definitely about search
uh… how-to yes it’s that as well it’s not about programming
business I think that applies as well
Way?? I don’t know what that means, but let’s just stick with those tags.

So now I have a task for myself is to go back through all my videos and make sure that the tags are appropriate because the advertisers aren’t seeing things very specific things that I think people might be searching for. I’d also want to appeal to advertisers to so that they can target my video with the appropriate ads so therefore when someone sees that ad they won’t skip it
they’ll watch it.

I’ll get paid YouTube will get paid, the advertiser might make make a little money and dependent upon what the ad is about everybody’s just gonna be happy!And I know you want people who subscribe to your channel to be happy too not to mention you want one of those fat AdSense checks!

So that’s your action step for today you have your YouTube channel already you’ve got videos up there go in there find out what Google is suggesting to you for tags first make sure that you have all those monetization options turned on and the tags that Google tells you that you need to add, okay?

Hey why don’t you subscribe to this channel so you can keep updated all tips and tricks I have for YouTube, blogging, and social media so just click this button right here and if you want a watch the last video I did about YouTube and Google Webmaster Tools click this video this little wait, wait where is uh… it’s right there ok just having a little fun with you guys

  1. Thanks a lot Ileane, i think Youtube is often ignored and most of us just focus on our blog, posts and it’s ranking on Google. Youtube videos can be used well to make money and your point about the way we use ads on our blog is also extremely valuable.

    I will definitely look for ways to reduce banners and utilize that space in better way.

    • Hi Akhilendra, I’m certainly happy to hear that you found the post and video useful. We work so hard to get people on our site, let’s not send them away as soon at they get there.
      Give YouTube a try and let me know how it goes. Thanks for stopping by!

      • Ileane, great video and post! I just want to underline one thing regarding ways of earning money of Youtube videos. Some people actually contact Youtube video posters and ask to rent their movie description for a link. Although this might sound like a way to earn even more money besides the money earned from the ads, don’t do it!

        From my experience your videos can drop in the Youtube or Google search results if your description is modified after a long time and a link is inserted over night.

        By sticking with just Youtube ads you got a long-term earning solution.

        • Hi Julius, I’m not sure I understand what you are referring to because no one has ever contacted me with an offer like this. It sounds like a scam and I hope most of my friends would be able to see this one coming a mile away.

          Thanks for the heads up though.

  2. Youtube advertising blows of your mind if and only if its done very good strategy.

    The Strategy is simple :
    1. Create awesome background images , which tells your GOAL of your channel.
    2. Creating very good videos, with both audio ad video quality. (most of the youtbe videos are low quality)
    3. Make use of the comments systems and video responses 😉 .
    4. Use annotations, Captions.
    5. Create transcripts and upload back..

    Get more views, likes, shares ,comments . Then the video will hit the first page of youtube search and as well as google first page :)

    I have hit my videos in my google search results. The best way to earn passive income is youtube. If you ignore, your missing loads of $$$ .

    Ms.Ileane gives very good guidance for every one :) Great articles Ileane , Last but not least , sometimes we should split test with ad format on certain videos which give high ROI.

    Got any queries ? Comment blow.


    • Great advice Suresh. I always get stuck on creating the transcripts – I need to work on that! I love to see that you are earning income from your YouTube vids. That is very inspiring.

      Have you done any testing of the different ad formats? Which ones performed the best so far?

      Thanks for the awesome comment my friend.

      • Right now at my channel there is only around 7 videos. I will try to split test after adding some more videos and keep posted about this in your facebook group.


        • Suresh, it might be difficult to do any split testing because the income isn’t broken down by the type of ad. All of the AdSense earnings are lumped together in one bucket (per video).

    • Hey Suresh and Ileane,

      Thank you a lot for your tips and information about YouTube advertising. I sure think that creating video is essential for our website to gain more traffic, I am currently using the technique right now, trying to be more creative as possible to gain more views and backlinks as well.

      • I am agreed with your confidence Ms. Ilane, youtube is the second biggest search engine in the globe, but its a video streaming sites also if we search for any keywords then first the competitors SERP launch after youtube link in 6th or 7th rank, how can you define those things.

  3. I agree with your topic Ileane because i have using YouTube monetize method a long period of time and i am getting revenue more than my blog. But after read your topic completely i thinking to adding videos in my sidebar to removing my adsense ads.
    Now i am going to doing some work in my blog depending upon your points and thanks for sharing the valuable points

    • Hi Janmejaya, adding a video to your sidebar is a cool idea. You can put an introduction video or a popular one from your channel. Let me know how you make out. Thanks for the comment.

  4. Thanks for sharing this Ileane, YouTube is really making a lot of great changes now. I love your calming voice in teaching us :) Those names are hard to remember too. I love the ones that you can stop or skip after 5 seconds as a viewer.

  5. Thanks Ileane, another great post. I haven’t monetised my blog or channel as I don’t think I really have enough traffic but it’s interesting that you found YouTube to be more profitable (and I’m guessing it gets less traffic than your blog)?

  6. Hey Ileane,
    This is good tutorial. I have listened to some of your videos on Youtube and I’m really eager to start the video strategy. My only hindrance now is low bandwidth. It’s ridiculous but that’s the main issue in my country.

    • I can imagine low bandwidth would be a big headache. Well, you should try to start off with a 20 or 30 second video so it will take you less time to upload. Good luck.

  7. Thanks for sharing Ileane,

    Video marketing is very potentially to sell a product, because it has the advantage. With video, we can also demonstrate how to use a product you want to sell. This will make the visitors More interested to buy!
    Plus the new feature to advertise on Youtube, this will blow up the sales! :)

    I’m certainly going to try to use ads on Youtube.

    • Hendry, I use YouTube for software product demonstrations most of the time. One day I would like to have my own product to demonstrate. Thanks for the comment.

    • You can view these stats in your AdSense account. The only difference is that you can’t see them for individual videos there. If you want to see your stats by video, you can check YouTube analytics for the details. So you really need to look at both in order to answer your question.

      I like to set daily income goals for myself and right now I’m doing quite well with reaching them.

  8. great information Ileane , i am testing out facebook ads atm , its been a day only so can’t really give out any information but i will surely post about it in your fb group , let me test fb ad campaign first before getting in to youtube thing. I will defiantly need these tips to start my youtube campaign.

    • Saad, I find Facebook ads to be very tricky. But if you get the right ad it can really lead to some conversions.
      I think it’s easier to do Twitter ads because they seem less confusing and they have less options, but Facebook might bring in more actual income. Good luck Saad!

    • koundeenya, don’t wait until you think everything is “perfect” – you have to start somewhere right? You will only learn by doing it so go for it and get some videos up on YouTube soon. ok?

  9. Hi Ileane!
    i watched your video it’s nice .i agree with you that you tube is the best way to get success in the blog,advertising, i like your tips about you tube advertisement.
    thanks for sharing this blog.

  10. Youtube Advertising is the best form of advertising for those who can upload videos regularly. One can attract more people to a particular youtube channel by making the youtube channel look proper. Making use of proper description and image for the youtube channel is very important..

  11. Taking down my adsense ads is really gonna be a hard thing to do.
    Anyways i’ll take your advice Ileane i’ll remove it soon.
    Good Post

  12. I just learned something new. Had no real thought about monetizing with YouTube but will definitely start now. I like the video example as I am a visual learner. Haven’t really made much adsense income from my blogs.

  13. Hey Ileane,

    You have got a typo up there – You wrote -“Ok, I’ll let me take things slow”. I think the “I’ll” has been a mistake anyways coming to the point.

    Great article, i agree with you on the fact that putting up those Adsense ads all over the site/blog irritates the readers/visitors but a good placement would do the job as most of the bloggers/webmasters can’t take the risk of putting them off as that’s the main source of their Bread and Butter.

    I agree with you that Youtube is a great place to earn a hefty amount and one must concentrate on monetizing it but many of the bloggers aren’t to friendly with video creation and other stuff. Hence they can’t completely put off the ads and use the youtube platform but yeah they can use both their blogs and youtube channel to earn some extra money and yeah if worked upon effectively one can famous the other part, suppose i run a blog i can bring my youtube channel into notice by putting up a widget about it in the sidebar/ writing about it and the same way i can bring people to my blog by putting up a link to my blog in the description section of the youtube video/channel.

    Anyways the Video was awesome and i loved it. I would surely try to monetize the youtube section. :)

    • Hi Ravi, long time no see! I appreciate you for pointing out the typo. I will fix it asap.

      Great to see you hear and please come back and let me know when your YouTube channel is all set up so I can take a look at some of your vids.

  14. Well,this looks just great.We are taking here about good money if you find the way to make good videos.Nice have a second option,adsense is being hard on me these days :(.Thanks Ilenane,love your video.

  15. Jim

    Okay Ileane, looks like I’m going to dust off the old Adsense account and put it to use again… this time on YouTube. Thanks for the great tutorial.

    I was half tempted to start using Adsense again so I could do that cool YouTube scheduling you demonstrated a couple weeks back ( Now that you’ve “shown me the money” I’m all the way convinced :)

    • Hi Jim, Great to hear this. I love inspiring people into action so I’d love to hear more about your YouTube success.

      If you are on Google+ be sure to add Ronnie Bincer to your circles if you want all the latest and greatest on YouTube marketing. He is the man!

      Best wishes Jim!

  16. hira

    Producing video content has become so easy that cats have become famous. But can there really be a viable and advertising source hidden between the adorable clip of the one with the static balloon stuck to his fur and the other one in the top hat playing piano?

  17. Youtube has got great power to blow up the rankings and really take them to another lever. Very few people realize that youtube video is the biggest backlink one can get. Great Post.

  18. Most of them including me ignore Video blogging because we think it is tough to get more visitors on YT. But after seeing your YT Chanel and videos I think if we try we can do.
    I decided to do some good videos but it`s delaying every time. Will certainly do this weekend.


  19. Ileane,
    People have been talking about the advertising options on YouTube for quite some time. Great to see a bit more about how they work and how they can help your business.

    • Hi Heather, great to hear from you. Video marketing is a must for businesses these days – even for B2B. Using YouTube makes the video easier for customers to discover.

  20. Hi.ILEANE
    that’s a great way to make aware people about youtube Advertising. Its Social Media time & youtube is also one of the famouse & valuable Social Media network. It’s really very simple lesson to learn about youtube Advertising.

  21. Ah the timing could not be better. I am planning for youtube advertising this christmas as I heard a lot good of it. I will take what you shared in this post and see if I can apply it and reach my goal. Thanks heaps

  22. Hi Illeane,

    You have given a different insight here about Adsense. Probably, do not realize that the excessive presence of Adsense can cause a potential damage to the blog traffic. As you wrote truly, You tube advertising is picking up now. Really a great piece of advice worth emulating.


    • Sanjib,

      I have a unique strategy for making money from AdSense on my blog and I plan to share it asap!

      Stay tuned.

      Thanks for stopping by my friend.

  23. Great stuff Illeane. Youtube ads are very valuable and of course much more valuable when they’re related to the video.
    And they’re often much more fun than the ads we see on websites.

    • Hi Nicko, I’m glad we are connected on and we are both interested in YouTube marketing and just the platform in general. It’s nice to network with you. Thanks for stopping by.

  24. This was a great post to get knowledge on advertising on youtube and monetize our blogs. Videos any time have more following than mere written content because they are more easily understood and informative. I will mark down all the important points in your video and apply it myself.

  25. Wade Harman

    YouTube is something that I have always wanted to get involved with. As such, I don’t know much about optimizing it though. Thanks for the helpful tips.

    • Hi Wade,

      Optimizing YouTube videos for search is almost like optimizing a blog post. The biggest difference is that YouTube has their own keyword research tool. But the general concepts of good titles and meta data are the same. Oh – and don’t forget having great content is important too. And by great I mean – interesting and visually appealing.

  26. What about people outside Youtube’s partner zone. I have a friend with over 100.000 subscribers and million of views per video. But its unable to become an youtube partner in my country since youtube doesn’t have an office here and probably never will.
    So yeah, how can I monetize my youtube channel if Adsense is out of the question.

    • Cristian, about 6 months ago YouTube opened up the partner program for just about everyone. So tell your friend to double check his account because there are only a small percentage of people who can’t use AdSense on Youtube. A handful of countries are excluded and of course anyone who has violated the TOS in the past.
      Keep me posted on this because I don’t want your friend to miss out on making money from his vids.

  27. Vivek

    Thank you, thank you and thank you.

    You have said : ” you’ll earn more in one month then you earned all year showing AdSense on your blog. ” And I agree to you. But I always face one problem. Creating an article is an easy task as compared to creating and developing any video.

    And if I am going to create any tutorial, then I have to give my days to it. Editing, zooming, adding captions and others.

    • Vivek, keep in mind, no one said that making money on the internet was going to be easy. Well I take that back, a lot of people say that’s it’s easy to make money online, but they are lying so that doesn’t count.

  28. Hi Ileane,
    This another piece of awesome information from your blog. Youtube advertising can be really a good source of traffic which is targeted. I agree that people sometimes bounce back if they see adsense on the very first glimpse of the blog. thanks..

  29. Mike, you are so right. I do a lot of software reviews and tutorials on YouTube and they do extremely well. It really helps when the developer or product owner picks up on the video and starts sharing it too. Most of my top viewed videos became popular this way.

    Great to get your feedback Mike. Thanks.

  30. Lokesh Chauhan

    Very nice post, Special thanks to ileane ma’am for posting this wonderful and informative article :)

    Lokesh Chauhan

  31. Nice Post Ms. Ileane! I agree, those people should really start making videos for their blog who dont give much attention to it. Youtube prove itself successful to bloggers the.

  32. We’ve only just started getting YouTube marketing but it is very powerful. Video itself is far more effective at converting sales then just text alone.

  33. Hey Ileane, I’m going to try this strategy immediately and let you know how it goes.

    I always use video, along with text, so I can create 2 avenues of traffic. I haven’t tried Youtube ads yet. Thanks for the great info Ileane!

    • Hey Glen, You have some great videos so you should do really well by monetizing your channel with AdSense. Keep me posted with the results.

  34. I have been asleep at the wheel Ileane! My husband was telling me about YouTube monetization and I thought it was an invitation only offer. I was really excited to watch this video and get the 411 on ad placement and monetization. Great post. Thx!

    • Hi Lisa,

      I hope you signed up for the partner program and started to monetize your YouTube videos.

      It’s great to see you here!

      Chat soon.

  35. For every search we get one or two youtube result on google first page so youtube ads would be a great strategy to bring traffic to your website. Thanks Ileane:) Thumbs Up!

  36. Hi Ileane,

    Great post, unfortunately the Youtube Partner Program is not available in my country, altough I still use Youtube for marketing purposes.

    I found that tutorial videos are far more effective sales tools than written down instructions in a blog post, especially when it comes to blogging or using somekind of software.

    Have great day, just added you as a friend on Blog Engage, cheers.


    • Hi Philip,

      I popped over to the YouTube to check for the list of countries available for the partner program. This is what it says:
      If the program is not available in your country, you will see a notification in your monetization settings.

      Looks like this the site was updated today 3/11/2013 so double check to see if they added your country and let us know.


  37. I have been using Adsense for more than 5 Years but I don’t like YouTube as a way to earn for now. Because, It needs hell lot of Engagement and it really needs hard homework to be done to get engaged. Well, I will be starting maybe soon.

  38. Ileane, great bit of info for those looking to monetize their videos! Should be helpful for folks like myself looking to expand and make a buck or two off Youtube. There’s tons of people doing it, and to great effect too! Although I do agree with some of the comments, videos littered with ads look pretty bad, to say the least.

    • Aaron, you don’t need to place AdSense ads directly on the videos (InStream) if you don’t want to. Just use the display ad option which will always be there on YouTube anyway.

  39. I think this strategy is better then other to make money, but i have no skill for youtube, i can’t creat hight quality videos. but, i think this post is very usefull for me. thanks for you Ileane..

    • Abd, there are a few options for making YouTube videos without getting on camera. Did you hear about Xtranormal? Give that one a try.

  40. Ileane,
    great step by step tutorial. i appreciate your desire for all of us to learn more.

    It is a little embarrassing, but I have tried to subscribe for you channel ans list MANY times. And then I remember that I am already subscribed. Funny, but I thought that it will make you feel better.

    May be it is a good question for your friends: How many times toy tried to subscribe for my list? I bet I am not alone. :)

    • HA! That is so funny Margarita. I guess I will need to find something else for you to subscribe to. That is going to be a difficult task….

      Thanks so much for your support and I’m glad you are implementing so many of the strategies and making so much progress. Have a wonderful weekend.

  41. Are these ads available in Dubai? I want to place Google ads on my youtube videos. Kindly let me know if they are available from dubai..

  42. I had read many articles on YouTube, How people makes Thousands of dollars From YouTube Videos? But, still I am not able decide what type video should be added. Seriously, I don’t have any knowledge in creating videos.

  43. Hey!it is really very very informative is also good that you tube provides free hosting for is very helpful to increase our business.
    Thanks for great fost.

  44. rokonto

    i have a video with twice the views of another, yet has earned about 5 times as much..
    can you tell me why?

  45. Superb work!

    Ileane can you suggest me good video recorder. I have just got a BB Flashback pro recorder but it is capturing the processing voice of the my laptop in the sound (which is annoying me + video quality not seems satisfying). ?

    Just give a look at the sound & video ( I ve’ spend much time on creating my first ever video and now thinking to delete it 😀

    • Hi Adil,

      I thought I touched base with you about this over on Facebook but if I missed it, I apologize.

      You need to adjust the settings on your recording software so that it will pick up the proper mic. What program are you using to make the recordings?

  46. Hi Ms. Ileane,
    I have a question for you. How do I put an anchor text on my Youtube video description? Thank you before.

    • Riki, you cannot create anchor text links on YouTube.
      If you have associated your account with your blog you can include an annotation with a link back to your site. Hope that helps.

  48. Hi Ileane,

    This is great sharing about Youtube advertising.
    I haven’t thought about making money on Youtube before, to me, Youtube is just one of the channel to drive traffic to my blog, and I place ads or affiliate link in my blog for making money. From now on, I will think about how to monitize Youtube channels
