It is a program designed for website publishers to display text, video or image ads on website pages & YouTube videos.

If your YouTube channel is Google Adsense approved, Google will post ads on your videos and you can make money if someone views & clicks them.


Once you are approved for monetization, YouTube analyzes your video to check  whether you own all the copyrights in your video or not.

If your video is eligible, then YouTube place ads on or near them. If someone clicks or views those ads, you will earn some money.

However, you must know all the copyright & fair use to avoid getting copyright strike. To know more, visit YouTube’s Copyright Center.
