Google and YouTube are announcing that they’re rolling out the YouTube Partnership Program, an advertising revenue sharing program, to regular people like you and me. Basically, individual videos that become widely popular, amass a ton of views, and abide by YouTube’s TOS will be eligible to earn revenue share dollars.
YouTube states.....“To determine whether a particular video is eligible for monetization, we look at factors like the number of views, the video’s virality and compliance with the YouTube Terms of Service. If your video is eligible for monetization, you will receive an email and see an “Enable Revenue Sharing” message next to your video on the watch page, as well as in other places in your account.”
After you’ve enabled revenue sharing, YouTube (YouTube) will sell ads opposite your video and pay you via Google Adsense on a monthly basis. Note however that individual video partnerships are US-only for the time being.
