Google’s YouTube has announced the expansion of their partnership program to include many popular video content creators. The move seeks to offer a way for popular videos to monetize their popularity, by sharing in some of the revenue YouTube collects from AdSense ads.
Participating user-partners will be treated as other content partners and will have the ability to control the monetization of the videos they create. Once they’ve selected a video to be monetized, we’ll place advertising adjacent to their content so participating user-partners can reap the rewards from their work.
Before you start fantasising about the hundreds of pennys you’ll surely make from that video fo Granny’s teeth falling out, you should know that the program is not open to all, just a select invited few.
