    So the thread title basically says it all, I have a YouTube channel with 6 videos for a total of 11k views as of today (I uploaded these videos last week). They're all adult related videos and the views are all real (I haven't inflated them with any software). The problem is that I only have a total of 6 clicks on my link in the description.

    I've added annotations and a call to action in the video, but still nothing. The links in the description are to download the video by the way. Is this normal or is it my niche (which is adult related). I can't imagine 11k views and 6 clicks is normal for YT.

    I would appreciate any help. Thanks :)

    I reckon it does have something to do with your niche. Are you using the 'click here to watch full video' deal?

    I tried the exact same thing with almost 200 videos with maybe double the amount of total views you have. I got one lead ($2.50) and almost all of my videos slowly got removed. There are only a few that are still up. I've done much better recently with other traffic sources (The kind that cost money).

    youtube and adsese are gettig very low ads these days, I am also facing low earning as I used to earn more than $25 daily but these days only $8-10, so the probelm basically is with low CPC and less ads.

    Well right now I'm using a PPD site with a random video as the file that they download (although they think it's the adult video, but I can't use that with the PPD TOS).

    Maybe I'll try dating sites. But I'm only getting 26 clicks to my URL and then only 6 clicks from there for the PPD offer.

    from my experience CTR is 0.1% and this is from actual videos that i have with 100k+ views...not from WSOs :)
    having a strong call to action, matching niche and offer and still.

    for example I have a KFC dedicated channel with a CPA offer of $100 KFC voucher...still the CTR is in that area.
    that's how it is bro.
