What is YouTube AdSense?

AdSense is a platform for YouTubers to earn money or monetize their channel through advertisements. 

Basically, it is a Google advertising platform for publishers wherein you can sell your ad spaces to advertisers.

Types of AdSense ads

The types of ads will affect your earnings. There are primarily 2 types of AdSense ads; banner ads and full screen video advertisements: 

  • Banner ads are rectangular ads that appear at the bottom of the video and only appear when the video begins.

  • Video ads, on the other hand, cover the entire screen. Advertisers typically use these ads for promoting a brand, presenting a short tutorial for the product of service or to showcase customer testimonials.
