My YouTube Monetization experiment that I started on 4 July 2014, has just passed the $6 mark. I had seen a week ago that I was nearing $5, but I guess I missed that milestone.
So looking at the metrics, it looks like I'm making nearly $1 for every 1000 views. So a little over 6000 views since July and a little over $6 in earnings. Cool. Now I just need to get those numbers up.
I have a total of 700+ videos, but most of them are family, and not targeted for high view count of course. Also my lifetime view count is 180,000+ and that would be only $180 or so over a number of years, so that historic view count doesn't really factor in.
The goal will be to add educational, entertaining or empowering (sound like Tony Robbins?) content to generate views...
