Do YouTube partners get paid per click or per impressions? In other words, is YouTube payments similar to adsense? e.g. on Adsense, product niche websites tend to have much higher earnings per click than, say, websites on philosophy. So i'm wondering if YouTube works the same way. e.g. are is the payout of a YouTube partner related to the content he's talking about. Given how much money FRED is making I would guess no....?
