    Not quite that much, but yes, Ray has things set for a while. I guess making antiquated jokes about videos that you don't produce really does contribute in a meaningful way to society (go free market) and warrants such exorbitant amounts of money.

    Not jealous, by the way. I thought his song was pretty fun, despite me not seeing how gigantic balls make a girl want to come back rather than leave.

    4.5M real traffic is about 2m real traffic. Average of 2 times watched.
    Them only 0,1% actually downloads it from iTunes (if it's not less). He also gets like 10% of the profit of the song. So $200 profit I guess so far.

    Jesus, 4 million views for 200 bucks? That an extreme waste of traffic. 4 million views should be worth at least 4,000 from adsense alone.

    lmao on the thread :D
    it depends how targeted the traffic was, the niche and the big factor "is he smart enough to monetize this hard?" ???
    ask him how much he made, maybe he replys u :D

    I'm not sure whether Ray is really using his immense popularity on YT to make money...
    It clearly says on his YT page:

    But seriously, he could probably become a multimillionaire in a matter of days, if really started to sell out. There's A LOT of making money oprtunties in his niche and with the viewcount he gets. He's got like 750 million of total views of his videos...:eek:

    I call BS on the earning amounts from iTunes. Way too high of conversion rate.

    hahaha

    Raj William Johnson did this video, this is his original channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/RayWilliamJohnson

    Don't you know him? Every time I set up a new YouTube account, I see him at the front page :D

    Yes, he has 750.000.000 VIEWS to all of his videos. He's gonna hit the 1 BILLION mark.

    That's so impressive, even a BlackHatter couldn't do it.

    I guess he is making that much money out of YT AdSense, that he doesn't needs anything more, he is pleased with that.

    I guess you have to pay 99 cents a year to sell on Itunes?
    Do you have to apply to Youtube to put Adsense on your channel?

    Ray is a funny bastard. He makes lots of money with his Korean face, and even though he may be strange sometimes, he's a smart guy. :)

    You haven't read my last post, did you?

    He has another channel with A LOT of views & subs, he has driven the visitors from there to this video.
