    You probably saw this video, and since I don't know much about youtube earnings, but I heard it's somewhere around $2 per 1000 views averagely, and considering they have millions of subscribers, how much do you think they made with this half-stupid video with freaking 82 million views



    If it was by calculation $2 per 1000 views they would've earned on this single video around $165 000, and I think that's probably impossible...

    Let's just say they will have done OK as YouTube will be in Tango with them sharing the revenue...:cool:

    Their channel is popular before this vid came along, they were youtube partners for a while and I guess they're doing just fine :)

    Regarding the earnings, no one could tell you exactly how much they're earning because at this level you get preferential contract deals from youtube.

    Yeah, but if it's really about $2 per 100 views, than that would be $165 000. Not bad for video that costed almost nothing, and what they've probably shot and edited in few hours.

    i read somewhere that YouTube partners get like 3,000$ per million views... but i'm pretty sure that subscribers,
    comments and likes are also taken into account so each YouTuber gets a different price for the views...

    i think they earned between 165 000$ to 250,000$, but it does seem to much... maybe someone on this
    forum is also a youtuber and can give a better answer...

    Imagine freaking $250 000 for like an hour of shooting, and hours of editing the video, with no productions costs. Johnny freaking Depp doesn't earn even close per hour, let alone some youtuber...

    I think at the lowest estimates of $0.50 per CPM they'd made like $40,000, although seems a little low for the in your face YouTube ads.

    No way that's only $0.5 per 1000 views, consider that some people are living from youtube, that have less subscribers and make averagely about 50k - 100k views per video, so I doubt that they earn only $50 per video.

    I heard prices range from $1.5 to $4.5 per 1000 views. Considering they have currently 3 million, they had at the release of video more than 1 million subscribers, I doubt that it's only $0,5 per 1000 views.

    You got it wrong, everything you said is just wrong. How can you "pretty sure" about your false information.

    I am also amazed that anyone would pay for that crap. It just comes to show that there's plenty of room for money making all 'round YT and Web 2.0.

    the "pretty sure" part wasn't about the 3k per a million but about the comment, likes, and subscribers and the idea that they probably contribute to getting more money per video... i didn't say i know - i said that i read somewhere so you can relax... i also stated that someone that actually is a youtuber can give a better answer...

    there is lots of false information online... but then again you are free to check yourself and see lots of sources that are saying similar things... if you have different information i welcome you to share it with us, till then don't just go claiming things and calling me out for no reason...

    I just hate these guys...they are lowering the IQ of kids who watch it.

    No...I am careless about these kids - they are lost anyway. Real reason for hating them: looks like they are having fun while earning tons of cash.
