Display ads show up next to your video, but offer lower pay than TrueView ads. They appear only on desktop and laptop computers. You get paid when a viewer sees the ad or clicks on the ad. Overlay ads work the same way, but appear on the bottom of a video, rather than next to the video.TrueView ads are the most common. Ads can be inserted before, during or after a video. Viewers can skip the ad after 5 seconds. If a viewer watches for 30 seconds or to the end of the video, you get paid. A slightly different form of this ad is a non-skippable video, where viewers much watch the entire 15+ second ad. Midroll ads are displayed within the video, like a TV commercial. Viewers must watch the ad before continuing their video, but only on desktop and laptop computers.
