As content creators increase in number nowadays, so the demand for youtube monetisation increases. Because that is where most of them post their content.
How to get money from Youtube is a hot topic when it comes to content creation which combines musicians, comedians, vloggers and more.
Content creation and youtube monetisation go hand in hand but surviving the google maze to have your content monetised require different tactics altogether.
It is the joy of every content creator to reach the threshold of 1k subscribers on his or her youtube channel and hence receive the notification of viability to monetise your youtube and get paid by displaying ads on the contents.
In this write-up, we will look at how to get your youtube account ads ready, how to display the right ads for every content and the right content to monetise to prevent banning.

The ‘basic’ is to have 1k subscribers over the last 12 months and 4000 hours of views on your account to get booked and readied to show ads on your Youtube channel.
In 2018, Youtube ruled in the section of Youtube’s terms and service call ‘Right to monetise’ that they will start running ads on every small channel below 1K subscribers and less than 4000 hours views that do not belong to the Youtube Partner Program but the owners of the channel will have no share. This is a new policy that forms part of the Youtube Partner Program
This triggered a virtual protest but couldn’t stop Youtube from implementing the rule which knocked off many baby vloggers and other big names who want their followers to enjoy the content with no distraction.
Now, if you can meander this rough road to monetization of your youtube channel, you can still be banned or taken off the platform for violating some rules of the platform such as posting copyrighted content and some dictions too.
This is because youtube deals with authenticity and originality. Your content must originally be yours ( though there are new ways to dodge this. We will talk about it later ).
YouTube partnership program (YouTube AdSense)
You can monetize your YouTube channel with AdSense. AdSense shows contextual ads on your videos and you earn money whenever a viewer clicks on the ad. This is by far the easiest way that YouTubers are making money.
