How Much Does Youtube Pay?
YouTube is a potential revenue stream for those looking to monetize their passions, but how much will your channel make per view?
There are numerous avenues you can take when looking to make money online, but perhaps the first thing that springs to mind for most people is starting a YouTube channel. Becoming a YouTuber is a path that seems easy at first, but to be honest, only a small percentage of those who take this path make it.
Creating a successful YouTube channel is a challenging task and you usually have to commit to uploading videos continuously over a long period of time. However, if your channel takes off, you will be rewarded with an additional revenue stream. IN this article, we will discuss how much YouTube pays for views.
How Much Does YouTube Pay Per View?
To make money on YouTube, you must first be eligible for monetization. This requires at least 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 hours of playback. The next thing to realize is that there is no fixed salary for YouTubers.
Every YouTube channel makes different amounts of money depending on how big it is and how many viewers it has. Before we look at how much the platform pays per view, let’s look at what factors influence how much YouTube pays creators.
The Factors Influencing YouTube Pay?
First of all, not every view of your video counts as monetized; a viewer must watch the ad for at least 30 seconds to count as a view. This is an important factor as you don’t get paid for every view of your video.
viewers must watch the ad for at least 30 seconds (or the entire ad if it’s less than 30 seconds) for your channel to get paid. There’s not much you can do in that regard, other than hope YouTube will show your viewers entertaining ads so that they watch a good chunk of it.
The second factor is that YouTube has different CPMs for different audiences.CPM stands for cost per thousand and represents the amount an advertiser pays for every 1,000 views of an ad. This CPM difference is based on region, and ad views from different countries pay different amounts. For example, Norway and Germany are two high CPM countries.
After all, the more views you get, the more likely it is that more people have seen the ads on your videos and therefore the more money you will make from YouTube.
With these factors in mind, let’s calculate how much YouTube pays per view on average.
How Much YouTube Pays Per View: The Simplified Math
YouTube charges contractors an average of $0.18 per view. YouTube pays 68% of this fee to creators through Google AdSense. This is a very good rate as theoretically you would be getting $0.12 for each view and $122 for every 1,000 views.
On a more detailed level, numbers are not always that simple. Some people use ad blockers, and a good proportion of those who see the ads skip them within the first few seconds. For these reasons, among others, the actual pay per YouTube video view is around $0.003 to $0.005.This means that a YouTuber earns $3 to $5 for every 1,000 views of their videos.
Use the AdSense Earnings Calculator to get a rough estimate of how much you can make each year from YouTube. The Google calculator estimate can be very tempting, so weigh the pros and cons of becoming a YouTuber before you decide to become a full-time YouTuber. It can be a difficult journey, and failure is not entirely out of the question.
More Views, More Money (Most of the Time)
YouTube pays a set amount of money per view, but YouTubers still don’t make the same amount. This is because the total amount a YouTuber gets paid through YouTube depends on how many views they get and where their viewers are from.
The exact amount of the pay-per-view cannot be calculated as the viewers are from different countries and regions. However, an average estimate is that YouTube pays between $0.003 and $0.
How Do People Make Money on YouTube?
Making money from YouTube used to be as simple as uploading great content, getting millions of views and getting a cut of the ad revenue. Now content creators have access to multiple ways to monetize their content. In addition to advertising, this can include corporate sponsorship of a major brand, fan financing, or merchandise sales.
- Content creators can join the YouTube Partner program after accumulating 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 hours of watch time.
- This gives creators access to monetization features such as advertising, fan funding and merchandise sales.
- Top YouTube stars make close to $20 million a year. However, most make far less or nothing at all.
