    What is the source of income of youtubers

    Wondering about the source of income of youtubers? Read this experts' opinion page to know how do youtubers earn and what is their monthly/ annual income.

    I have observed that YouTube has videos on almost all the topics. Further, they are free of cost. The only thing that YouTubers demand is only to like and share there videos. I am curious to know that from where they earn money exactly and what may be their monthly income. I have also tried to search for the same on YouTube but different people gives different explanations,like, some says that income from any video depends on how much 'likes' it obtains and other says that YouTubers get a fixed annual or monthly income depending on their number of subscribers. I am totally confused about the exact mechanism. Please provide me exactly from where do YouTubers earn and how much they earn?

  • YouTubers get money from the youtube website. Youtube website will get money from the advertisers who advertise in the videos. When somebody opens and sees the video and click on the subscribe button, they will get a count of the viewer. The youtube channel will count these clicks and in proportion the YouTuber. That is why many people will ask us to view their videos and click on that so that they will get the viewer count. There is no fixed income for these YouTubers. The income is purely dependent on the views.

    always confident

  • The main source of income for a YouTube channel comes from the Google Adsense affiliation. Just like we are linking our page in ISC to Google Adsense in same way a YouTuber links his channel to Adsense using his account number. The source of the money is the amount being paid by the companies to show their advertisements in YouTube videos. In the initial times of the YouTube introduction, there were limited people showcasing their content videos in YouTube and that time the earning was good. With mushrooming of the channels in each niche area the income is also distributed to so many people and the individual channel income has significantly reduced. Google Adsense gives a good part of it's advertising revenue to the YouTubers as well as the hosting site but the key to the income for a particular channel lies in the traffic to it. Traffic is the most important thing that build up a sustained income. Now, there are thousands of channels on one particular subject and people would be attracted to the best ones in terms of content and video quality. It so happens that some channels starve for traffic and so their income is nil. The income is calculated through a formula based on the number of views, number of advertisement clicks and the advertising rate for that particular advertisement. So every thing finally depends on how many people have seen your video and impressed by the contents and come back to your channel when you upload a new video. Earning from YouTube channel has become very much competitive now and most of the mediocre and repetitive channels are earning almost a negligible amount. At the same time if a YouTube channel becomes famous then there are some additional ways of earning through sponsorships and merchandise deals etc.

    Knowledge is power.

  • YouTube income is purely based on how much ads are shown and how those ads viewed by visitors. Ads are given by advertisers and Google keeps 45% and offers 55% of those income to the publishers who uploaded the videos. No money is paid for subscribers count. Also high views does not always mean high revenue. But views are high, chances are high for ads showing and thus high revenue. At the end of each month, Google will send the payment to the publishers. For example, this month earning will be released on next month from 21st to 26th. Hope you understand how it works in YouTube!
