    Hey,
    I heard that YouTube pays channel owners for every 1000 views on their videos. Is that true? I can't find any info about that on my channel. All I can see is that they pay through AdSense account for ad clicks.

    It is like Adsense and based on traffic, offer shown, and views (mobile, adblock, monetizable). Most just plain YouTube partners earn $2 per 1k views, and most partners with a network earn $2.50 per 1k views. The view smust not be mobile, adblocked, and must be target relevant for the advertisers. If you get a lot of views from Asia and the ads are mainly for US, you will get the lowest pay and fill rate for ads possible. Hope that helps.
