I don’t know about you, but I’m making bank on the text-based Google Adsense on my blogs. I just splurged last month’s earnings on #4 with a coke and had enough left over for an apple pie.

Google has finally shown us evidence as to why they acquired YouTube for $1.6 billion by releasing Adsense for Video (Beta).

According to the AdSense blog, “We know that publishers are quickly adding video to their sites and looking for ways to earn additional revenue. If this sounds like you, look no further than AdSense for video, our solution for qualifying publishers.”

AdSense for video is available to publishers who, at a minimum, serve one meeeellion video streams each month and are based in the U.S. with English language sites. They plan on expanding the program to more publishers of various sizes and locations.

To see how AdSense differs from other Google and YouTube advertising tools, click here.

To apply for AdSense for video beta, visit the AdSense for video page on the Google Video Advertising Solutions site.
