    Hi all,
    I keep seeing the viewers increase on PSY - GANGNAM STYLE Video on Youtube?
    Can anybody estimate roughly howmuch money has he made with 1,156,153,347 views?
    can you also explain.

    I was reading somewhere that for every 1000 views you can calculate 1 usd.. according to this calculation, he has made roughly:
    1,156,153 USD Does this sound right?

    Yea I was wondering about this as well. How do you make money on youtube? Is it per click of the ads, or per view? (Sorry as far as youtube is concerned, I know nothing).

    Many people recently proved that he had been adding fake mobile views to get viral, so we can cut those views down. But still for breaking all the records and getting the most viewed video, he had already made some really cool amount of money and due to the popularity he got, many people have hired him offline for future projects which will bring him some more.

    It's anything from $.70 per 1000 to $3.

    Typically its around $1.50 per 1000 views

    but a video this big will mean he can probably sell his own adspace on it.

    Mobile views are also not monitisable.

    I think you make money as long as the viewer does not skip the ad and watches it all

    A recent news report on the BBC said it had made a little over $5M when it hit the 1B views mark.
