Adsense video units are go!
October 9, 2007
Google has announced the launch of their Adsense units for embedded videos.
By embedding certain YouTube clips into your website you can now have advertising units displayed via Adsense. You can choose categories of video to target to your site, select content from individual YouTube partners, or have video automatically targeted to your site content.
When you place a video unit on your website, you’ll earn revenue from two types of ad formats: companion ads, which sit above your video content within the player and can be either text or image-based, and text overlay ads, which appear in the bottom 20% of the video content area. Ads on video units can be paid on either a cost-per-click or cost-per-thousand impression basis.
Sounds good for anyone with a high traffic website or portal, earning potential could be quite high if you place the right videos on your site.
