Are you interested in making money online with You Tube? Am sure your answer is yes. I cannot grantee that you will make money right from the start it will take some carefully planning plus promotion to give the edge or boost for you to earn.

Requirements to You Tube?

All you need is a Gmail account and a Google Adsense account, which You Tube will use to pay your earnings. Note: You can still upload you video’s and monetize without the adsense account and later apply for adsense and still get paid.

How do you create a Video?

You do not need complicated equipment and an editing video studio. Just use the simple available resources like webcam on your Pc or Laptop or a camcorder or your smart phone.

How do you edit your video?

I use entry level editing software like the Apple iMovie for apple Mac operating system and Windows Live Movie Maker for Windows operating system.  The above editing software are more than sufficient to create videos for You Tube.  If you want to create videos using your computer like recording an onscreen video you can use Camstudio ( Free), Camtasia (Paid) or Animoto (Free and Paid).

How to upload your video?

Simply go to youtube.com and sign in with your Gmail account. 
















Then Click on upload. You will find a number or options Webcam capture, Photo Slideshow and Google + hangout these features are simple to use just experiment with any before settling to a specific one.








During uploading.






















Tips on how to get good rankings!

  • Before uploading do some research on the keywords of your title of your video. You can use Google Keyword Tool or You tube search bar to give an idea of the best title you can coin for your video.
  • Make sure your description is short and detailed using keywords so as to encourage one to view your video.
  • Tags tell what your video is about allowing it to be found by people looking for your video. Put in at least 10 tags or more for your video so that it will be returned as a related video for as many searches as possible.

How monetize your videos after uploading?

Use video manager and locate your video. Click the “Edit” or “$” button next to your video. Click the Monetize my video check box and select the ad formats you want to enable for your video. Save Changes. Now your video is monetized.

Promoting your video!

After uploading your video you tube gives you are URL to your video. With these link you can share it via social media like facebook, Twitter, Google + and any other social media you are part.

How to Add Google Adsense To Blogger

Posted by at 11:12 PM

What is Google Adsense?

An advertising program allows publishers (websites/blog owners) to insert relevant and targeted ads on behalf of Google in exchange of revenue that is if a visitor clicks on the ads placed on their site. It is one of the ways that publishers use to make moneyonline. It is not a quick rich scheme it takes time and loads of traffic to earn from these strategy. The Key is writing quality content using keywords and being persistent.  

You might ask me about Keywords?  Keywords are the lifeline of articles you post online or make on your blog or website. Keywords are used by search engines to give relevant information to users whenever they are searching for a particular thing or information.  For example if you are blogging about gardening tips, go to Google Keyword tool and type gardening tips 




















You see results like these.




















From here, you get ideas of the keywords to use for your article. Do not over use them. Use 20% in your article.

The next step is getting the Adsense account. First Step is having a Gmail account then sign in. Go Adsense then follow the simple instructions  laid out for you by Google. It takes  8 hours for the first phase of approval then they will send you an ad code to add to your site. Unless you add the code to your site then you will never be approved for Adsense.

Once you have added the code they will monitor your blog or site between 2 to 7 days for them to approve. The best way to be approved is by posting several posts to your blog then apply for Adsense. Once approved the next step is configuring Adsense to blogger.

After Google improving on blogger nowadays it’s automatic not manually as before. Simply go to your blogger and select earnings.

Select show ads on blog and display select the first option.

















Now by doing so you have monetized your content on your blogger. The remaining thing is driving traffic to your blog. Note don’t click on the ads posted by Google on your blog reason being Google will lock your Adsense account and reactivating it will be a problem.
