Latest posts by Shreshtha Verma (see all)

The Internet is a funnel which has collected, compiled and converted every single in this wide world and poured it into a small and accessible jar. There was a time this Internet had then just commenced into being and people were insanely hungry to perceive its miracles. What a time it might be!!! Quenching the hunger of theirs was not an easy task as it demanded a huge investment of money. But the panorama has been beautified now with the ease of its availability and accessibility. The credit confers too great minds who have invented cheap micro technology. The most bizarre point of today’s internet is its transformation to a ‘money machine’. The most famous agent which can dump on you with a huge lot of easy money is our one and only ‘YOUTUBE’.
Youtube, It is an American video-sharing website headquartered in San Bruno, California. The service was created by three former PayPal employees — Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim — 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 favorites, report, comment on videos, and subscribe to other users.Now here can come a common and reasonable query, ‘How can really money be earned  through a video site?’ Video content uploaders all over the world share their innovation on youtube. Viewers watch their videos and hit ‘Like’ and,  ‘Like’ is that factor which values their videos. More than 75% of the youtube users have 1 million ‘likes’ on their youtube channels. These likes attract the advertisers. And they do a partnership with the uploaders under  ‘PARTNER PROGRAM’  which is launched by youtube in may of 2007. It is a system based on AdSense which allows the uploader of the video to share the revenue produced by advertising on the site. YouTube typically takes 45 percent of the advertising revenue from videos in the Partner Program, with 55 percent going to the uploader.There are over a million members of the YouTube Partner Program. According to TubeMogul, in 2013 a pre-roll advertisement on YouTube (one that is shown before the video starts) cost advertisers on average $7.60 per 1000 views. Usually no more than half of eligible videos have a pre-roll advertisement, due to a lack of interested advertisers. Assuming pre-roll advertisements on half of videos, a YouTube partner would earn 0.5 X $7.60 X 55% = $2.09 per 1000 views in 2013.
