From Youtube I was directed to Adsense where I completed the process and received an email from Adsense an hour later to confirm account was fully approved.
However, in Youtube, the monetization section still reads “Not Enabled”, and when I click “Enable” I’m taken to the “Set up Adsense” page on YT which takes me on a circular journey.
There are 3 steps:
1. Your account
2. Your website
3. Your information
When I click “Accept association” on stage 2 (your website), I am brought back to the “Set up Adsense” page on YT.
I’ve tried with firefox, chrome and safari and I have the same problem.
I am going to escalate this thread. I don’t have any ETA on a fix unfortunately but youtube staff is aware of and looking into the issue. I will post an update once I have more info
If you are also experiencing this same problem – to be specific, going through adsense association only to be looped back to your channel with no sign of adsense being linked – feel free to leave your channel URL in this thread.
