Nigeria: Independence Anniversary Should Unify Nigerians - Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari said this morning that Nigeria's 61st Independence Anniversary should not only serve as a reminder of the day the British handed over the reins of power to Nigerians, but a day that also unified the people from all ethnic groups, religions and regions.

How Does Google AdSense Code Work?

It sounds simple; get people to click ads on a Web page and make money. Website owners around the world do that daily using AdSense, a tool that Google makes available to anyone. If you'd like to join the action and make money using AdSense, you'll need to add a short block of code to the pages on your blog or website. How AdSense Works AdSense helps advertisers by getting people to visit their websites. For example, when you place AdSense code on one of your Web pages, that code generates ads on your page. When a site visitor clicks an ad, that's one more potential customer for the advertiser -- and for you, the code logs that click and credits your AdSense account. The amount that you make per click varies depending on the advertiser whose ad you display. After the money in your AdSense account reaches a certain threshold, Google sends you a payment. As of January 2013, your payment threshold is $100 if your reporting currency is the U.S. dollar. View a summary of your es

To monetize your video, you must be at least 18 years old, your video content must be advertiser-friendly, your video must use self-created content or have commercial permissions and your video content must comply with YouTube's Terms of Service and Community Guidelines. Additionally, if your account is not in good standing or has been previously disabled for monetization due to previous violation of any of these guidelines, you won't be able to monetize any videos on your channel. Age Requirement If you are not 18 years old or older, YouTube will classify you as an underage publisher and will not allow you to monetize your video with AdSense. If you are rejected for this reason, you will receive an email from YouTube asking you to verify your age. If you are 18 or older and receive this email, you can follow the email's instructions to verify that you are 18 or older and
