    I have just started but at the moment it looks like this


    PLAYBACK-BASED CPM
    $0.98*


    PLAYBACK-BASED GROSS REVENUE
    $5.90*

    ESTIMATED MONETIZED PLAYBACKS
    6,034*



    But when i go to estimated earnings.

    it looks like this

    TOTAL ESTIMATED EARNINGS
    $0.32*


    AD EARNINGS
    $0.32*

    TRANSACTION EARNINGS
    n/a*



    So will i get the 5.90 or the 0.32?

    So what is the following?

    My top auction trueview in stream is $37.82

    My playback based gross revenue is $7.82

    My estimated earnings are now $2.05.

    But what are the first two. Like what do they mean?
    I have tried to look it up but can't find any simple answers


    Also I added monetisation in my first video....but i did not link an adsense account until later.
    My first video has the most views, and I am sure it said that i could like an Adsense account later and still get money from the views. Is this right? Or will i never get any money from all the views on the first video, as i had not linked adsense yet.?

    Playback-based CPM = Revenue per Thousand views. For certain ad types this will be significantly higher (ie TrueView video ads)
    Playback-based Gross Revenue = Total amount of ad revenue generated by your videos. This does not take into consideration what your revenue split is. So this is typically around 2 times more than whatever your estimated earnings are.
    Estimated monetized playbacks = The number of views where the person sees/watches an ad. This includes people who skip videos but does not include people who use adblock.
    Total Estimated Earnings = The net earnings you will receive based upon your revenue share. I'm not sure if that split is dependent upon the type of ads or what but I've never been able to make sense of it. I've read in multiple places that the split is 55/45 but my split is always slightly off of that amount. For example last month my playbackbased gross revenue was $172.45 while my total estimated earnings was $94.05, which is only 54.5% revenue share.

    Also, if you have a network, you will then only receive a % of the total estimated earnings broken down again, which could lead to an even lower payout. This is all based upon personal experience and being partnered on YT for 3 years.

    Yeh I also have an auction display that is $217.

    I really do not know what that means, but seems good i guess??
    Does that mean if anyone ever clicks on that ad i get a share of 217??

    Some for the whole time, some only 3-4 minutes of the longer videos!
