How Much Does YouTube Pay Per View?
The amount of money that you can get paid per video is not a fixed amount and it actually depends on a number of factors. The amount that YouTube pays per view can and will vary wildly based on factors ranging from the topic of the video in question, to where the locations of your viewers are, to how family friendly the videos are, to how engaged your viewers are. Advertisers will generally pay between 10 cents and 30 cents but it will usually average out to about 18 cents per view. These amounts are averages as there are many, many things that go into the exact amount that you will get paid.
When you are trying to gauge how much money you will get from Google AdSense, which is what you will make money through, you will need to keep in mind that Google pays about 68% of the revenue to the publisher. This means that if an advertiser offers $100, Google will pay $68 to the publisher. Whether or not you get paid based on engagement depends on who watches the advertisements and if viewers watch at least 30 seconds of the video’s advertisement. These are more factors that will affect how much you get paid per view on your YouTube video. Making a comfortable living off YouTube takes time, dedication, and patience but it can eventually mean that you are able to live your dream life.
How Much Money Does YouTube Pay Per 1,000 Views?
Unfortunately, there is no fixed amount of money that YouTube pays per view. How much you get paid will depend on a number of factors that you will need to keep track of. Some of these factors include the topic of the video itself, where your main viewer base is located, and how family-friendly the videos you create are. Going by the generalization that each view can get about $0.18, you will end up getting about $18 per 1000 views. Since about 15% of an engaged viewer base will watch the required 30 seconds of an ad, this will average out to between $3 and $5 per 1000 views on a video. As each channel and audience is different, you should take this as an estimate of what you can make.
