Google AdSense YouTube Earnings To Be Separated With Own Payment Threshold

Google sent emails to YouTube publishers that their YouTube AdSense payments will be separated from their other AdSense payments. So if you get paid through Google AdSense for AdSense ads on your sites and also in YouTube, you will now get payments individually for each. The issue is, that means each has to hit the $100 payment threshold individually and you might get paid out slower.

That is, some publishers take time to hit the $100 payment threshold but when you combine AdSense for Search, AdSense for Content, YouTube and other earnings together, you can hit the $100 payment threshold sooner. Now that Google is paying YouTube out differently, it may take you longer to get a payment from Google if your payments are small – thus hurting smaller publishers.

Google sent an email saying “starting in March and rolling out over the next few months, you will have a dedicated way to view your YouTube earnings. Instead of combining YouTube with other AdSense earnings in one payments account, YouTube earnings will appear in a separate payments account.” “The amount you earn will not change, however users with both YouTube and other AdSense earnings will have two separate payment accounts. Each payment account will need to reach the payment threshold which could influence your disbursement timing,” Google explained.

The answer is not really, there is no schema or structured data that helps you control or define these for Google, John said. He said Google just decides on its own if it wants to show them for snippets or not. We have seen product images in the web results for a long time, sometimes more often than not. Here is an example for a query on [sofas]: click for full size John did add that maybe Google will add a help document about these snippets so this is clearer for the community. This came up at the 10:54 mark when this question came in: Question: I’m trying to find out some more information about the images I recently see increasingly in the organic search results directly in search, not in image tab because there’s no documentation in Google, in the Search Central. And I try to find out some common things about images of some differences butIi don’t see anything connected to the resolution or size or the ranking position. So is this just a test or will there be coming documentation? Do you have any information about these image snippets? Answer: From our side these are essentially just a kind of snippet so it’s not based on any particular markup that you’re doing on the pages. It’s not something specific that you define on the pages. It’s really just we recognize these images are on these pages and for whatever reason our algorithms think that for users showing some images or kind of the these snippet images would help them to decide which of the results to click on. So that’s from our side it’s something like, yes we are showing images and snippets and I think in the past we didn’t do that so much but it’s not based on anything specific that you can control other than like maybe deciding you don’t want any images on these pages indexed and you want to use like the what is it no image index meta tag. But it’s not something where you can say I want these images indexed or these images shown in the snippet it’s essentially we’re picking images from the page. Maybe should we should at least document that we do show images in the snippet and that it’s not something that you can easily control. That’s a good point. Here is the video embed: Forum discussion at YouTube Community. In part one Riley Hope and I spoke about her SEO career, how she did her thesis on ethics in SEO and we spoke about the automotive SEO space. In part two we talk about women in SEO and more on the automotive space and search results. In part three, we talk about how COVID has changed searcher behavior. COVID & Searcher Behavior Riley said we all saw an uptick in internet usage and led to searches around mental health, depression, anxiety, sleep issues, dealing with kids being home and people buying online, curbside pickup and more general business being done online. She said some of the dealers would drop cars off at your home, which was big. But small businesses, some, weren’t able to adapt as quickly as some bigger businesses. This led to larger companies profiting more, like Walmart, Target and Amazon – leaving smaller businesses in the dust. Riley’s masters was in “social enterprise” and it involved studying the impact on COVID’s impact on small businesses and using SEO to help these small businesses recover. I gave some examples of my personal experiences and Riley explained how things changed right after COVID compared to months after. Many companies were offering digital based services, like selling cars online, and not doing everything face to face. We then moved into discussing how marketing had to change to be more sensitive towards COVID’s mental health changes. Companies had to change their commercials to adapt to the new world. We didn’t only speak about commercials but how online reviews are taking a beating with disgruntled customers who don’t want to wear masks or other issues. Strategies For Small Businesses During COVID: A lot of small businesses did not know about Google Search Console, Google My Business (now Google Business Profiles), Google Analytics and so forth. Plus, a lot of these businesses do not have websites, they might be on Instagram but no where to funnel these customers. Most these small businesses don’t know about SEO, they don’t have CRM set up, plus they have a really unprofessional website. Google did try to release features to help businesses perform and generate revenue during the pandemic. Small businesses should utilize what you can, like social media. Small businesses don’t have a big staff to do everything. So just do what you can with what resources you have, and you will learn as you go and keep growing from there. Make sure to be consistent with whatever you do. You can learn more about Riley Hope at RileyHope.com or follow Riley on Twitter @reillyhope13.

Jan 24, 2022 • 4:00 pm | comments (0) Here is a recap of what happened in the search forums today, through the eyes of the Search Engine Roundtable and other search forums on the web. 2022 has started off with a lot of volatility in the Google search results, there was another unconfirmed Google search update noticed over the weekend. Google released a new robots tag named indexifembedded, it deals with embeddable content. Google spoke about product images in the web results and how there is no real documentation on that. Google also spoke about redirects pull backs and other signals around links consolidation. Google is discontinuing Cameos on Google. AdSense is now seperating out YouTube payments, which might be a bad thing. Finally, part three with Riley Hope’s vlog is out. Search Engine Roundtable Stories: January 22nd Unconfirmed Google Search Ranking Update Again I am seeing signals, both a lot of chatter from the SEO community and tools lighting up around a possible but yet unconfirmed Google search ranking algorithm update. Yes, there has been a ton of unconfirmed updates in the past couple of weeks and let’s add this one to the list. New Google Robots Tag indexifembedded: Control Indexing With Embedded Content Google has announced a brand new robots tag it will obey going forward, it is named indexifembedded. It lets you control if you want Google to index a page with embedded content. Google: There Is No Schema For Product Images In Web Search Google’s John Mueller was asked if there is a way to better control the images that Google shows in the web search results for product results. The answer is not really, there is no schema or structured data that helps you control or define these for Google, John said. He said Google just decides on its own if it wants to show them for snippets or not. Google On Redirect Pull Backs Plus Signal Consolidation I am not going to get into the 301 vs 302 redirect debate, covered that countless times here. But I found an interesting conversation on Twitter about the differences between 301 and 302 redirects and how they consolidate signals forward or back, also known as pull backs. Cameos on Google Is Going Away Google on Friday sent out emails to those who have recorded videos for Cameos on Google that they are discontinuing the service. “Beginning February 17, 2022, you will no longer be able to record videos through Cameos on Google and any existing videos posted to Google Search and Discover won’t be shown,” Google wrote. Google AdSense To Separate YouTube Earnings With Own Payment Threshold Google sent emails to YouTube publishers that their YouTube AdSense payments will be separated from their other AdSense payments.

So if you get paid through Google AdSense for AdSense ads on your sites and also in YouTube, you will now get payments individually for each. The issue is, that means each has to hit the $100 payment threshold individually and you might get paid out slower. Vlog #156: Riley Hope On COVID & Searcher Behavior In part one Riley Hope and I spoke about her SEO career, how she did her thesis on ethics in SEO and we spoke about the automotive SEO space. In part two we talk about women in SEO and more on the automotive space and search results… Stunning Dublin View From Google Look at this stunning and awesome view of Dublin from the Google office building. It is just wow. The person who posted this on Instagram wrote “Dublin bay putting on a show this morning.” Chris Tweten posted a photo the other day on Twitter of a dental office sign with its company name – the company name is named “Dentist Near Me.” Of course, the SEOs in all of you are thinking, oh, this dental practice wants to rank for all [near me] related dental queries. I don’t think I’ve seen a business named in this naming convention. But it might not be the best SEO strategy to name your new business with “near me” in its business name. John Mueller of Google responded to the example and said “I kinda wonder if it works against them, because of how easily search engines change “near me” into just a location, making it really hard for people to search for them by name. For a local business, probably not a problem though, and the cute name likely helps marketing too.” I guess we can see over time if this business had success from it. But it won’t be a long term SEO strategy, if we convince all our SEO clients to start renaming their businesses with “near me” in the business name, then Google will act on it. Forum discussion at Twitter. Google generally likes you to stick with one language per page, that isn’t to say you cannot use different pages throughout your site with different languages. But if you do not listen and you put multiple languages on a page, Google can assign multiple languages to that page, said John Mueller of Google. John Mueller said this at the 58:45 minutes where he said “We will still try to focus on the primary language if we can determine one. If we can’t determine one primary languages then we might use like multiple languages and assign that to the page.” He then explains this in more detail saying “and you can sometimes see that if you do something like a site query for your website and then go into the advanced search settings and specify language. Then you can sometimes see like which language is being recognized for my website. And if you try other languages you might see that oh it’s being recognized for Dutch and English Which doesn’t mean that it has less weight in Dutch, it’s just well we recognize that it’s like a mix. And from that point of view it’s kind of something you can kind of double check there.” He said he sees this sometimes with destination and vacation sites, he said “I think the one situation i would watch out for is if your page is recognized as being in a language that is not correct. Like for example, if you have an English website on vacation homes in Spain and all the addresses are in Spanish and all the place names are in Spanish and we think the whole page is only in Spanish then it will be hard for us to rank that page if someone is searching for vacation homes in Spain because we think oh this is all in Spanish this is not English what what this person is looking for.” Here is the video embed: Forum discussion at YouTube Community. Brodie Clark posted a Twitter poll asking “is optimizing a website for search term variations that include “near me” good practice for SEO?” The results were pretty almost evenly split amongst “yes” and “no”, with more people leaning to “it depends.” The poll has over 1,000 votes and goes well with the story from earlier today about how naming your business “near me” with a keyword phrase might not be the best idea. Here are the poll results: I just find it funny that most of these SEO polls about should you do X or Y almost never have strong confidence in either answer. Forum discussion at Twitter. Last week we broke the news that Google does some form of deduplication of the top stories and web results in some situations. John Shehata released some data from his Newzdash product showing that 67% of all Google searches have duplicate top stories to web result URLs and about 12% of top stories URLs get duplicated in the web search results. Here is when Google deduplicates the top stories and web results, note, Danny Sullivan of Google said this might change. Google will deduplicate a URL from web results if a link appears as the first link in top stories and if the top stories box appears before web results. However, if it comes after, Google won’t deduplicate the URL. Here is the chart from Newzdash: click for full size John Shehata added “top stories positions 6 and 7 are the most duplicated in web search results in positions 4 and 5. John added that the “numbers are very steady over the past 30 days and he looked at 5.1MM URLs in 15 countries. Forum discussion at Twitter. Google Emojis Google has confirmed it is officially testing placing emojis in some search ads. Darcy Burk spotted a pizza emoji on a search ad for Uber Eats and posted the screenshot on Twitter. Ginny Marvin of Google on the Ads Liaison Twitter account confirmed Google is testing placing emojis in some search ads. Here is a screenshot: Ginny Marvin said “this is part of a series of small experiments to help users more easily identify the brand or advertiser associated with the Search ads they may see for a given query.” Just to give you some history here, this is against Google’s ad policies – to have emojis in the ads. But I guess Google thinks it is worth testing out. Google ads had emojis in 2020, 2019, 2017 and 2016 but in all those cases, it was not Google adding them – here Google is adding them to the ads.

We spotted a dental clinic with the business name “dentist near me” – is that a good thing to name your business with near me in the name?
