Okay here’s what the blue bar says:
Then I click on a “Get started” link which brings up a window type thing that is titled “Enable Your Account for Monetization” and below that is a bunch of legalese, which I have copied if you’d like a copy.
Then below the legalese are three boxes I have to check to proceed.
[li]I have read and agree to the terms above.[/li][li]I agree that I will not click on the Google ads that I’m serving through Google’s products and services in order to fraudulently increase income.[/li][li]I will not opt-in any content for monetization for which I do not possess sufficient rights.[/ul][/li]The next window is “Ad Formats” with more check boxes for me to choose how I want things to be shown.
[li]Overlay in-video ads[/li][li]TrueView in-stream ads[/li][li]Videos contain a product placement[/li]
After that I clicked “skip” because I didn’t read the legalese and don’t want to get into something without reading such stuff.
The next window contains instructions on how to monetize each specific video, “Monetize videos by clicking the $ icon or by selecting ‘Monetize’ from the Actions dropdown menu. For more information visit Monetization in your Account Settings.”
The only option for me at this point is “Got it”.
After this I went to the Monetization section of my account and you can enable/disable monetization and there is a Guidelines and Information section. The various links unfortunately do not provide any information that answer the brunt of your OP.
The closest is the answer for “How much will my videos earn?” Which is “Earnings will depend on a number of factors. the two key factors are the type of ads and the pricing of ads appering with your videos.”
Also, there is a question “How will I be paid?”, to which the answer “Payments are managed through a Google AdSense account. You must associate an AdSense account to your YouTube account in order to be paid.”
I went to the relevant link contained in the answer and apparently you only get paid when you reach a “payment threshold”. Upon further research, the payment threshold for USD is $100. So every time your video reaches the 100 threshold, you'll get paid, the specifics on /view or click through isn’t specified.
In short, I have no real answer to your question.
