YouTube advertising, done through Google Ads, is a way of advertising your video content on
in search results so you can maximize your user reach. This could be your video playing before a
views another's video or showing up in YouTube search results for people to watch in full.
Ads may appear on your uploaded videos even if you haven't monetized the videos yourself. If
contains content to which you don't own all necessary rights, the rights holder may have chosen
ads on it. YouTube may also place ads on videos in channels not in the YouTube Partner Program.
