Account issues

My AdSense application has been disapproved

There are several reasons why your AdSense application may have been disapproved, and the most common disapproval reason is because your application is a duplicate of an existing account. AdSense policies only allow one account per publisher, and it’s against the AdSense Terms and Conditions to create a second account.

If you receive an email from AdSense saying your application has been disapproved for being a duplicate, you may associate your original account with your YouTube channel. The email from AdSense will provide details about your original account.

I want to monetize my videos, but I was disapproved for being under 18

The minimum age requirement to participate in AdSense is 18 years. If you have submitted an AdSense application through YouTube and were disapproved by our system for being an underage publisher, your YouTube account will still be linked to this disapproved AdSense application. You should follow the instructions in the disapproval e-mail you received to verify your age (if you are over 18) and resubmit the AdSense application.

In case you are under 18 years old, the only way to start monetizing your videos is to link the YouTube account to an approved AdSense account (of a parent or guardian who is over 18).

I’m not a YouTube partner, so why am I seeing ads next to my videos?

Ads may appear next to your uploaded videos even if you haven’t monetized the videos yourself.

If your video contains content to which you don’t own all necessary rights, the rights holder may have identified his/her content in your video and chosen to place ads on it. Ads may be displayed on your videos if they contain soundtracks from the AudioSwap library or if the content in your video has been identified by Content ID.

Ads are not appropriate for my videos

If you believe ads are inappropriate for your videos, you can opt out of displaying ads from your Video Manager or from your Channel Settings page, by deselecting the radio btn next to “Allow advertisements to be displayed alongside my videos”.

Note: The accepted formula that Auxiliary Mode Inc. uses to calculate the CPM range is $0.45 USD - $25.00 USD.

The range fluctuates this much because many factors come into play when calculating a CPM. Quality of traffic, source country, niche type of video, price of specific ads, adblock, the actual click rate, watch time and etc.

Cost per thousand (CPM) is a marketing term used to denote the price of 1,000 advertisement impressions on one webpage. If a website publisher charges $2.00CPM, that means an advertiser must pay $2.00 for every 1,000 impressions of its ad. The "M" in CPM represents the Roman numeral for 1,000.
