    YouTube Video ads can Earn You $$$

    Hi,

    I just found this company. I have just added them to one of my sites. They have a wordpress plugin or they give you a code to edit to your site if you know how to paste code into wordpress. They also support others as well.

    What will happen is a small ad will be on the top of all youtube videos that you have on your site.

    They split ad money 50/50.

    You can pick the advertisers that you want on each video or they will auto pick for you from your keywords.

    I have no idea how much $$$ I just joined. I know ads for Best Buy and ebay have been showing up on my site.

    Here is the site Coull

    Let me know what you think of them.

    I have never heard of them, but I would be very careful about giving your SS# and other personal info to an unknown web site. There appears to be many more scammers than legitimate companies when it comes to advertising affiliates.

    They are a UK company and their WHOIS registration is private.

    For sure after the last experience with a company embedding videos on my blog, I don't believe this one is any improvement.
    So will bypass.

    But is seems to me that somehow they have found a way to hijack videos from youtube and make the videos do as they please.
    Not good I do believe.

    Hi,

    I have had no problems with any of the videos playing on my site. They pay paypal when you reach $15 US.

    Here is the info on the site about the company.

    We are Coull Limited, a company registered in England and Wales (registration number 06679670) with registered address of 6th Floor, Colston Office Centre, Centre Gate, Colston Avenue, Bristol BS1 4TR (Coull, we, us, our). Our VAT number is GB938976451

    As of now they have not asked for SS# and other personal info.

    I'll keep you all informed.

    I placed the ads on myhalloweenideas site and this time of year that site don't see a lot of traffic.

    We will see what happens.

    I wonder if they are using sites to sell YouTube views. There isn't any money to be made otherwise by simply watching videos, and Google picks up the ad revenue for the overlay ads.

    Dawg is probably right. They may have found a way to hijack adverting and display their own ads, or they are selling views.

    Remember that a legitimate registered company does not mean it it an honest company. It will be interesting to see what type of commissions you make with this.
