    I would call that article/infographic complete BS.
    They say that creators get paid $100 for a Million views.
    I have had a video with around 160K views which made me $250.

    Unless the creator's content is targeted towards tier 3 countries (which pay pennies) they will make way more that $100 for 1M views.

    $250 for 160k views from Youtube ads? That's not bad at all. Did you optimize the video and got some backlinks to it or was it simply set 'n' forget?

    I had done no optimizations, backlinks, promotion whatsoever.
    All the views were organic.

    No problem!
    Make a good video that provides quality to the viewers and you should be good to go!
    The views and shares will come in on their own if the content is good.

    I used to earn between $0,80 to 1,50 per 1000 video views and I have a channel with 160k-200k daily views on autopilot, but I made the mistake of upload and monetize copyrighted videos (on other channel) so youtube demonetize all my channels asociated to my adsense account for six months. I deleted the whole account of the channel which generates the penalization and I hope youtube will reactivate the monetization when the penalization period will expirate (July 2014)

    So, that would mean $800- $1,500 per million views. I also take it it depends on video and the "ad" the users click on.

    What I draw from this is that only if you're Jenna Marbles and have 7million views per day you can make a living. At 7 million views this means...between $5.6k and $10.5 k per per day...Not bad, but still...how can you chum videos like that on a constant basis?

    Not really, not a very good to earn a living let alone getting rich as you put it. There are better alternatives to invest the same amounts of resources in.

    What I'm thinking is that if you can put some video reviews of important stuff and your aff link and also monetize the youtube channel that might work...but I have a slight impression that YT won't truly agree with that...

    Monetized with a Binary Option affiliate program. I also have forex videos which make a fair bit. However the Binary Option video I ruined at the beginning of this year trying to get it ranked on Google, it ended up losing its positions in YouTube.

    Thank you for the quick reply mickyfu.

    So, that's the best and fastest way. The videos that you had before getting spanked by YT were SEO optimized in any way and any link building done to them? Or just set 'n' forget?

    No I just uploaded it one day, and for some reason it took off. I had another account with the same vide on, which also did well, but I got the account banned.

    I do not bother with YouTube that much now, but what I used to do is just find forex videos which are demos of the platform, made by the forex broker themselves, copy the vid and reupload it loads of times with different titles, most of them relating to making money online. I suppose if you just set and forget them like I do, you have to get lucky for them to take off.

    Hmm...I suppose this can be scaled up on various video sharing sites. Did you use an URL shortner for your aff link or just sent them to a landing/squeeze page?

    At one point I used one of my own domains and 301 it to my affiliate link, then I changed it to a custom tinyurl.

    Yeah mate we should create a good quality video around 60 to 90 sec including transcript. The view will increase naturally only if the content is related to that video. And also we should research to choosing the title and description. We should form the title according to user point of view, who will search for that keywords.
