How does YouTube Pay To Their Contributors?

As its a big question among those who spent their most of the free time in watching videos on YouTube that how much YouTube pays to their contributors for uploading their videos on YouTube or how much they get per 1000 views.

But youtube didn’t pay for views they pay for ads clicks that are done while watching your videos on YouTube. In simple – YouTube didn’t pay contributors for views.

If someone uploaded a video on YouTube and didn’t enable monetization (Feature to link youtube with AdSense to show ads on your videos) on that video then contributor will not receive a single cent as no videos will be displayed on his/her video and YouTube will not pay anything to the uploader.

In average a video having 1000 views can make 50-100 ads clicks and the average CPC (Cost Per Click) on youtube is about 0.01- 1 dollars and each click have different CPC rate. Let’s assuming that you receive 1000 views with 100 ads clicks and this will make you 1 dollar. In short, averagely youtube pays 1 dollar per 1000 views to their contributors. However, if you have targetted traffic from countries like USA or UK then you may earn around 5-10$ from per 1000views, and opposite if you are targeting countries like Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nigeria, Africa then you may earn less than 1$ as well for per 1000views. But the average mixed traffic can earn you around 1-10$ as we said above.

CPC (Cost Per Click) is different on every click. It depends on the country and on advertisers. If advertisers spend more money for advertising on YouTube and if their ads will be shown in your video then you will make a good CPC rate. Most of the countries like India, Pakistan, Indonesia etc. have low CPC rate and the average is about 0.01-0.1 which is a very low amount. So, if you are receiving most of the traffic from these countries then your CPC rate will be low. It’s not same in all cases, as I said it depends on advertisers efforts to spend money on advertising. Maybe your video shows ads from those advertisers who are spending more money for advertisement.
