Here’s something for web publishers in the YouTube/Adsense partnership program. It belongs in the Johnny Carson, “I DID not KNOW that!” category and is a follow-up to my earlier article: Can You Make Good Money in the YouTube/Adsense Partnership program?
I was vaguely aware when I signed up for the YouTube/Adsense partnership program that not only would I make money on clickable ads placed on my YouTube video logs, but when others would embed my video units on their site there would also be a three way revenue sharing. But I had forgotten I would make money this way until I started seeing money show up in this strange category on my Adsense page called: AdSense for Content Host.
I am seeing a considerable spike in my Adsense income since I started the YouTube/Adsense partnership program. Although this started out slowly, August’s income in this category more than tripled from the previous months’ averages and it has stayed consistent since then. From my understanding of the program, YouTube partners are paid by impressions and not just clicks on ads shown on YouTube pages. But Google is very secretive and publishes no statistics on the YouTube partner ads, so I am not 100 percent sure how this works.
But hold the phone!
Last month, my AdSense for Content Host category started spiking and this month it is spiking even more. I had to Google what the term, AdSense for Content Host, actually meant and I found a plethora of people who were puzzled by this sudden spike in their earnings as well.
This income comes from my YouTube videos that are embedded on other people’s websites. Here is how YouTube explains it:
In AdSense Reports Overview, ‘YouTube’ refers to revenue earned on your channel at www.youtube.com.
AdSense for Content Host refers to revenue earned from embedded videos ads and AdSense for Video Ads. AdSense for Video ads can run both on your videos on YouTube.com, and on your videos on an AdSense publisher’s website. These ads consist of text overlay ads contextually targeted to a combination of signals in your videos and on the site.
In other words, I am making money from ads on my YouTube pages, which is a separate category, but I am also making money from “video units” — that is, my YouTube videos shown on other websites.
In fact, if the trend I am seeing this month continues, the income from YouTube may top my regular Adsense income from ads on my website.
A friend of mine who does web development for a living first implored me to try AdSense in 2006. Around the same time, he suggested that I use YouTube to stream my videos. This was a few months before YouTube’s jump in popularity. I had complained that I had more video I wanted to show than I had server space. I was kind of shocked that YouTube allowed me to stream video for free. I got into it not even thinking there could ever be a profit in it on my end.
I have to learn to take such suggestions more seriously, no matter how esoteric and impractical they may sound to me at first. It’s the curse of being a genius: No one understands you at first, but people who do may end up cashing in on your brilliance.

A magnificent depiction of Luther and the forces at work in the surrounding society that resulted in his historic reform efforts, this film traces Luther’s life from a guilt-burdened monk to his eventual break with the Roman Catholic Church.

Who is the dreaded beast of Revelation?
Now at last, a plausible candidate for this personification of evil incarnate has been identified (or re-identified). Ken Gentry’s insightful analysis of scripture and history is likely to revolutionize your understanding of the book of Revelation — and even more importantly — amplify and energize your entire Christian worldview!
Historical footage and other graphics are used to illustrate the lecture Dr. Gentry presented at the 1999 Ligonier Conference in Orlando, Florida. It is followed by a one-hour question and answer session addressing the key concerns and objections typically raised in response to his position. This presentation also features an introduction that touches on not only the confusion and controversy surrounding this issue — but just why it may well be one of the most significant issues facing the Church today.
Ideal for group meetings, personal Bible study — for anyone who wants to understand the historical context of John’s famous letter “… to the seven churches which are in Asia.” (Revelation 1:4)

“Give me liberty or give me death!”
Patrick Henry’s famous declaration not only helped launch the War for Independence, it also perfectly summarized the mindset that gave birth to, and sustained, the unprecedented experiment in Christian liberty that was America.
The freedom our Founders envisioned was not freedom from suffering, want, or hard work. Nor was it freedom to indulge every appetite or whim without restraint—that would merely be servitude to a different master. No, the Founders’ passion was to live free before God, unfettered by the chains of autocracy, shackles that slowly but inexorably bind men when the governments they fashion fail to recognize and uphold freedom’s singular, foundational truth: that all men are created in the image of God, and are thereby co-equally endowed with the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
This presentation is a similar call, not to one but many. By reintroducing the principles of freedom that gave birth to America, it is our prayer that Jesus, the true and only ruler over the nations, will once again be our acknowledged Sovereign, that we may again know and exult in the great truth that “where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is liberty” (2 Cor. 3:17).
Welcome to the Second American Revolution!
This DVD features “Liberty: The Model of Christian Liberty” along with “Dawn’s Early Light: A Brief History of America’s Christian Foundations.” Bonus features include a humorous but instructive collection of campaign ads and Eric Holmberg’s controversial YouTube challenge concerning Mitt Romney’s campaign for president.

Foundations in Biblical Eschatology
By Jay Rogers, Larry Waugh, Rodney Stortz, Joseph Meiring. High quality paperback, 167 pages.
All Christians believe that their great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will one day return. Although we cannot know the exact time of His return, what exactly did Jesus mean when he spoke of the signs of His coming (Mat. 24)? How are we to interpret the prophecies in Isaiah regarding the time when “the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:19)? Should we expect a time of great tribulation and apostasy or revival and reformation before the Lord returns? Is the devil bound now, and are the saints reigning with Christ? Did you know that there are four hermeneutical approaches to the book of Daniel and Revelation?
These and many more questions are dealt with by four authors as they present the four views on the millennium. Each view is then critiqued by the other three authors.
