    the 1st and 3rd one make no sense to the reader so i would take that out. Secondly, I assume your keyword is "making money on youtube". I would go with the last one since there are no hyphens.

    Dashes are interpreted as word spacing in search engines eyes and easily readable for humans.

    Option 2 makes most sense to search engines and humans.

    A easy url will increase your conversion rate and I would never do any seo without focus on my conversion rate. A high CTR rate will also help you with a better ranking in SERP's!
