    I have 2 videos and around 500k views total. Last 30 days had almost exactly 100k views and I made $45 through YouTube monetization. Is this about right? Kinda seems low, even with millions of views, it's not enough to live on seemingly. Anyone make more?

    Have the earnings been different the last week or so for anybody? Usually I buy 5,000 views right away, and get 50,000 natural views and earn about $50, but in the last week or two I only get about 5 cents for those 50,000 natural views. My legit, non boosted videos still make normal amounts though. What changed? Anyone else experiencing this?

    Where does your traffic come from and what kind of niche are you in. Those are 2 questions I ask when i refer to my rpm. $50 is low for 100000 views.

    Traffic is mainly US based and they are both general how to videos, one is about wordpress and the other is about php.

    12% mobile in my 500k views I haven't made $500. From what I'm reading, that seems to be awful low!

    If you look at the stats here, last year when I posted the first video and had my first batch of tons of traffic, I made a whole lot more money than the second video on the channel which is about 2 months old. Do you get a different CPC depending on what niche your video is?

    Normal view price of youtube is 1k = $1

    So your earning is 90% low, check the unique cookie views. That will
    give you more idea.

    What is your cpm? Look in youtube analytics. This is your cost per mille. This is what it costs per 1000 views for advertisers to advertise on your videos. Google takes 45% of a CPM. Youtube takes it's chunk and if you're lucky, you will survive with afew bucks. My rule of thumb, if my cpm is $10, then my videos per 1000 views will pay out $3.

    Try other niche that monetizing with affiliate program and Youtube.

    You made $45 with 100K visitors in last 30 days. Think that you should earn $1,000+ with 20,000 visitors in 30 days.

    Let do the math:

    10,000 visitors x CR 1% x $10 per sale = $1,000.
