Many Youtube partners were surprised on April fools day that they could still see clicks to their videos but a big $0 in the column. Was this a cruel joke? Was Google keeping all of the Adsense for Content Host earnings?
Of course not, a change has been made so that from April 1 forward all Youtube earnings will be reported inside of Youtube and not in Adsense. To find your current earnings in Youtube going forward, you will need to login to your Youtube analytics. The payments are still reported in adsense as a lump sum payment at the end of the month.
In the past, there was still a part of Youtube earnings that appeared at the end of the month in a lump sum. Now the reporting is all being done within YT and no longer within Adsense.
So do not fear, your earnings are still near!
Hope this helps.
By the way, if you have not yet verified your Youtube account with a cell phone, you can do that to be sure you have complete control of your channel.
Then take a look at the new Youtube layout and design. You will need to start with a very big graphic for your channel header (dimensions given) and then you can explore the other features and see samples of other sites that were early adopters of the new Youtube channel layout.
