    Hello guys,

    So before I get into the advice I am not here to advertise my network or anything, i'm here to help after looking at many post (Although I am quite new here).

    So I own a large Youtube network and have owned many before, I will not name it for now incase it will be reported as spam. My sole reason for starting a network was to make money like all of us on here, I use to be a content creator trying all the tricks on YouTube to make money and they worked, and I also used view bots etc to try and get videos up and running. I want you guys to know the truth about networks and how YouTube can help you.

    As you know on YouTube when you have videos and get a bit of views, there is 2 ways you can monetize your videos, the first way is to go directly with YouTube (Adsense). To get accepted in adsense you need to have acceptable content (Although they do not check when you apply most of the time) and then after every video you need to submit it monetize, unfortunately most of the time if you have spam like content or copyright content they can choose not to monetize the videos. Adsense also heavily relies on ad clicking, so if the user clicks on an advertisement they see on your video you receive a bit of money, this is called PPC (Pay-per-Click). The money you get per click depends on the advertisement (hence if you have content like cooking or technology the advertisements are better thus giving you more money per click).

    The second option are YouTube networks. Now there are many different type of YouTube network, but before let me tell you how you earn money with Youtube Networks and how its different from Adsense. Adsense is mostly PPC based, however YouTube networks are more PPV based which means Pay Per View. So the user only has to SEE the ad in order for you to get money. Now the way this is calculated is by every 1000 views. So most networks will offer you average of $4 per 1000 monetized views (Monetized meaning they saw the advertisement). Around 20% of a average YouTube channel views are monetized most of the time, so if you had 100,000 views a average 20,000 would be monetized.

    Now CPM depends on a couple factors which are:
    1) Location
    2) Category
    3) Length

    1. The location meaning your target audience location. If your videos are spanish and your main target audience are spanish, the Ad-system displays advertisements that the spanish people would click on (So spanish ads). If your main target location is from UK/America, there is more advertisement meaning your CPM can be really high like $7 but if they were from more third world countries, or not developed enough, such as African countries your CPM could be as low as $0.50.

    2. Category means what type of category your videos fit into. If you post lets say war videos (Like the channels posting Syria videos) your CPM would be low because there is not alot of advertisements that can be displayed, like for example a Shoe company that want to advertise their shoes would not post their ad on war videos.

    3. The length of the video highly affects the CPM. In simple terms, the longer the video, the more advertisements can be put into the video and the more audience retention. Now long videos that are 20 minutes about lets say a gameplay of a new game might have $11 CPM compared to a 5 minute video of the same content which will have $6. If you get the right content and a long video, you can have CPM's up to $40 (Which I had personally at times).

    Now that I have explained CPM, Youtube Networks mostly (I would say around 70%) use the same advertisements as Google Adsense. Meaning if they say we can offer higher CPM then Adsense would be wrong cause its the same! There are only some networks that have their own Ad sales team that CPM will differ on. Youtube networks take a percentage of the money you earn at the end of the month but sometimes they offer you additional perks such as protection and they accept all videos on monetization (Although if it is way too copyrighted some networks hold the payments but this is rare and more common with some networks then others.) Thats why if you have content that is more on the copyright side you can go with networks and they will accept them.

    So I still make channels and partner them with my network, one of the main reason I started a network was to prevent networks not giving me fair amount and holding back payments (Even if YouTube had sent them). I have worked at many networks so I have alot of information.

    If you have any YouTube questions about monetization or terms of conditions or about networks in general I will anwser them just post a comment or private message me.

    Thanks for reading :)

    YouTube mostly uses the IP of the audience that watches the video, but it also takes in category and uses a automatic system to try and detect the language (although its quite unreliable).

    Hey bromargaming, thanks for replying, I would say the key point of growing your channel (Since I do not know your content) is consistency, keep uploading videos, the more active you are the more chances you have of being discovered and the more YouTube will get involved with your channel, also make sure you try and improve your quality (Custom thumbnails, great titles, really good tags) and try and stay with what is popular for now (If you are doing games try and do videos about new games)

    Hope this helps, if you want more personal advice feel free to message me!

    OP, one of my friends lost her Adsence account via competitor clickbombing on her website. She has a lot of videos on Youtube, and she puts some every month. Is there any way to monetise those videos through networks without having an Adsence account? She's not from US, no way to open LLC for her. What's your advice?

    Hey mrtwister_65,

    Unfortunately, no network can accept a channel which has adsense disabled, this is YouTube law.

    But! What she can do is refute the decision and say that it was unlawfull, if shes lucky and her case is valid she can get her adsense re-instated. Then she should apply through a good network.

    Hope this helps

    I'm quite noob in youtube issues. Can you guys mention some youtube networks? I don't know any, I though the only ads you could place on youtube were adsense ads.

    Hey Y M C M B,

    It depends like I said in the post, some networks do offer higher CPM and can get you higher earnings, some can take even more money than adsense, but networks are more safer if your content is stolen or is unlawfull (Like copyright).

    I hope this helps, if you want more information private message or comment again!

    Hey luisk,

    I could suggest some but it depends what content you upload and what you are looking for in YouTube, like to make quick cash, to make a career, to test things out etc. I dont think its sensible to mention what networks are good and bad here so PM and Ill tell you some!
