YouTube, Blogger, and host partnerships

Sign up for AdSense via YouTube

As your YouTube videos accumulate more views, you may want to apply for an AdSense account to associate with your YouTube account. Successfully linking the two accounts means you’ll be eligible to receive payment.

To sign up for an AdSense account through YouTube, follow the steps below:

  1. Make sure your YouTube account is enabled for monetization.

  2. Submit your application to create a new AdSense account to link with your YouTube account. Once your application has been approved, you’ll see a "Host account" label on the Home tab of your AdSense account.
    Google will send you a payment the month after your AdSense balance exceeds $100, assuming your YouTube and AdSense accounts are in good standing. Learn more about when you'll get paid.

  3. If you also have your own non-host website where you’d like to show ads, then you’ll need to submit a one-time application form to tell us the URL of your site.
    You only need to complete this step if you want to monetize your own website -- you don’t need to take any further action to continue to monetize your YouTube videos.
    Once your one-time application is approved, the "Host account" label will be removed from the Home tab of your AdSense account and you’ll have access to generate the AdSense ad code you need to monetize your non-host partner website.
