As a large YouTube Network Owner, My advice and tips on YouTube and how it works.

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.

I am bit confused here.. can you show me some reference as youtube adsense is mostly PPC based?

As for as I knew, even if you're directly having account in adsense or joined network the earnings algo works the same. I have youtube channels both in direct adsense account and in network (Freedom). The earnings are shown in the youtube analytics is the finalized one, whereas you get without any cut on direct adsense account and 40% cut in networks (Freedom) from the finalized earnings! I don't see anything like PPC or PPV!

Hello,
The earnings between your adsense and freedom will not be too different as freedom uses Adsense advertisements for their network, they just take a large cut of it on top.

The reference is because Adsense works this way by PPC. I will link at the end of the post but the concept of PPC is the MAIN source of income for adsense user as it is used on website as well. If you were partnered with adsense and I kept repeatedly clicking on your advert, you would eventually get banned for spam click, but with networks this is not possible because the ads from networks are PPV and are if not 98% from that traffic source. If you go on your adsense account manager and your dashboard it would tell you your statistics and clicks,but go to your freedom dashboard and it is all about views.

Unfortunately I cant post links in my post just yet but if you type in adsense CPC help you will find the policy of it.

Hope this helps,
Best regards
 
would u say its better to go with adsense or a youtube network?

If you do game related stuff, or anything else that is parody and can be copyrighted then you'd go with a network. If you are original and don't have any copyright sensitive materials, then you go with Adsense.
 
According to this page

https://socialblade.com/youtube/top/networks

"Freedom!" has more than 86K members, while "OmniaMediaCo" has about 3K members and quite much the same amount of subscribers and video views.
If I had a YT channel, it would make any difference to me joining one or the other based on how many members they have? Or CPM is the only thing I should consider?

I have a 3 yrs old youtube channel with 2 original videos uploaded everyday 50k views a day and $1000-2000 earnings a month (it's costly to produce the videos though). Is there any advantage in joining a network?

Also how do I open my own network?
Thanks,
Neole

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 :)
 
Interesting share, how does one go about making their own YouTube network though?
 
Youtube adsense isn't solely PPC, they also pay per 1k impressions as well, known as CPM. Anyways, how did you go about owning a network, or are you a subnetwork?
 
Great you just gave me an idea for making money. Now for the hard part how do i get views on youtube? (Without having to spend months trying to grow the damn channel)

First of all, many thanks for your post and your advice, I'm certainly all ears here.

For myself, I've devoted the last 8 months of my life to YouTube and high quality content creation. To be honest, I'm almost set to give up. I have 75 videos (most are high spec as I'm a pro video producer anyway) and I chose a pretty good niche market. I've gotten 'in' with the related brands who know us pretty well. I've invested an extraordinary amount of time into producing 500+ words description per video, SEO-devised titles and carefully chosen tags. The videos do appear to rank quite high on those keywords. We also signed up with a large MCN.

I've even spent quite a bit on Fiverr, buying high retention, good quality views to rank the videos well and start them off pretty good. I've also spent time buying/creating likes/dislikes and more time slow-drip feeding my own comments from different users to make it all look very lifelike and real.

8 months down the line though, I'm still failing to see growth where I should be seeing at this stage. It's hard to tell how many "real" views the videos are getting, possibly a few hundred per video if I'm being realistic. I rarely get genuine comments, although it does happen (maybe a half dozen or so a week across all videos). Many comments are from other YouTubers "impressed" with my channel and sort of placing their own ad on my channel.

It's a shame, a great deal of time goes into making the videos, many have FX, good music, they're all monetized. Never received a cheque yet, but then the videos haven't earned enough real, genuine views.

I'm not sure if it's 'normal' to be this unsuccessful after 8 months - I just expected, with everything that we're doing, to be much further along in terms of social interactivity.

Recently, I've suffered a pretty large setback in that YouTube must have cottened on that I'm writing a lot of my own comments because I'm finding all new comments I place on the videos are deleted from the videos within 48 hours. Some bot comes along and just wipes them. It's not IP either, as I've tried to trick it by using different IPs, but it still wipes them. It has to be related to placing comments from the same accounts all the time (I have about 10 YT accounts, each with several multi-channels/users within each account). This set back has started to make me wane in enthusiasm. T'would be such a shame to notch 8 months of my life to a wasted effort.

I guess this post is not just pleaing for advice, it also serves as a warning to others that even if you dedicate 8 months of your life to YouTube and do all you possibly can to make it popular... that there's no guarantee it will ever be.

Yeah you should definitely have some decent views/subscribers with 75 quality videos and 8 months of posting. Do you subscribe to any popular youtubers in your niche? I would suggest that you comment on their videos giving them complements but also mentioning that you have your own channel. I found a semi popular youtuber in my niche with 50k subscribers and commented on her video and to my surprise she shared my video. Of course I only had one video up and it was crap so I gained about 100 subscribers lol, but still it gave me a little network to build on.
 
So which one does DC toys collector have? PPV or PPC?
