YouTube Earning Model is fascinating and very popular search query..
After I did research I got to know that, there is only 4 main factors are consider for your earning.
YouTube is an American online video-sharing platform headquartered in San Bruno, California. Three former PayPal employees—Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim—created the service in February 2005. Google bought the site in November 2006 for US$1.65 billion; YouTube now operates as one of Google’s subsidiaries.
YouTube allows users to upload, view, rate, share, add to playlists, report, comment on videos, and subscribe to other users. It offers a wide variety of user-generated and corporate media videos.
Available content includes video clips, TV show clips, music videos, short and documentary films, audio recordings, movie trailers, live streams, and other content such as video blogging, short original videos, and educational videos.
Most content on YouTube is uploaded by individuals, but media corporations including CBS, the BBC, Vevo, and Hulu offer some of their material via YouTube as part of the YouTube partnership program.
Unregistered users can only watch (but not upload) videos on the site, while registered users are also permitted to upload an unlimited number of videos and add comments to videos.
Videos that are age-restricted are available only to registered users affirming themselves to be at least 18 years old.
YouTube and selected creators earn advertising revenue from Google AdSense, a program which targets ads according to site content and audience.
The vast majority of its videos are free to view, but there are exceptions, including subscription-based premium channels, film rentals, as well as YouTube Music and YouTube Premium, subscription services respectively offering premium and ad-free music streaming, and ad-free access to all content, including exclusive content commissioned from notable personalities.
As of February 2017, there were more than 400 hours of content uploaded to YouTube each minute, and one billion hours of content being watched on YouTube every day.
As of August 2018, the website is ranked as the second-most popular site in the world, according to Alexa Internet, just behind Google.
As of May 2019, more than 500 hours of video content are uploaded to YouTube every minute. Based on reported quarterly advertising revenue, YouTube is estimated to have US$15 billion in annual revenues.
YouTube has faced criticism over aspects of its operations, including its handling of copyrighted content contained within uploaded videos, its recommendation algorithms perpetuating videos that promote conspiracy theories and falsehoods, hosting videos ostensibly targeting children but containing violent or sexually suggestive content involving popular characters, videos of minors attracting pedophilic activities in their comment sections, and fluctuating policies on the types of content that is eligible to be monetized with advertising.
4 Main YouTube Earning Model
- Watch time
- Social signals.
Let me explain, one by one
- Watch time : a very crucial and important. It is applicable for each of your videos on YouTube. It is measured in % Mostly.
For an example, if your video is of 10 min and your most viewers watch video of only up-to 5 min it means your watch time is 50% ( it is very high and tough to achieve).
- Subscribers: having only subscribers is do nothing. The main purpose of subscribers is to get notified and get brand attentions on you. YT never focus more on subscribers,. But, if your subscribers have more watch time that non subscribers it will help to fill your pocket more and get viral soon..
- Audience: a very important factor. As you know Indian’s never want to spend money, even all tier 3 countries spend very less amount of money on advertising and digital presence. So it is very necessary to target tier 1 and 2 country. So, if your audience and subscribers are from such countries, even less subs and views you earn lot.
- Social signal: I am not very sure about, it but the social signals are very important to get boost and your video comes at top. Some popular social signals are Like, Dislike, Shares, Comments and comments Engagement. So keep that in mind.
Now, best question come in mind how much you earn on 1 million views
Approx. From above 4 factors if your watch time is 11 to 15%, audience from India, quite social signals you may get approx 350 to 500$ from ads only no promotions.
If you have audience of tier 1 and 2 you can easily earn up to 1000 to 1500 $ per million views.
But note: it also depends on which part of your video has more watch time e.g. in your 10 min video more peoples forcefully watch specific 4:20 to 5:30 video part (which you can see on your analytics) then try to put more ads on that specific Timestamps so that you get some extra cash..
Here, if someone is using paid membership of YouTube you get no money from there because, YouTube not show ads to them.
Someone use ad blockers where also you get no money there fore try to target mobile, because android apps never allow you to use ad blocker on specific apps, but desktop do.
Keep this factors in mind..
And now calculate how much you-tubers actually earn.
This Is My Point Of View.
So you receive 55% of every dollar paid by advertisers) The estimated earnings that the average YouTube creator could expect to receive from ads on a new video on their channel if EVERYBODY watched the ad on their video and the advertiser paid the average $7.60 CPM is 55% x $7.60, equaling $4.18 per 1,000 views.
