Is my CPM low? Is there any way I could increase it?

    Am I earning too low amounts of $ compared to the amount of views? How could I increase my earnings per views ratio?

    Also, my channel is gaming channel and I'm partnered with Curse (90% revenue)

    Note: I can't really effect that much to my retention time without slowing down the video making procress. Now I'm doing about 5 videos a week, all are 2 minutes long. Should I start making maybe 2 videos a week, which are like 5 minutes long? Would that help?

    Also, should I consider changing my network?

    I thought CPM was just based on the type of ads that are displayed. I have one ad that has 18.00 CPM, but others that our like 0.59. I think it just depends on the type of ads displayed.

    What I don't know is if you have any control over what is displayed.

    If someone else has a gaming channel too, how much are you earning with it? (Views/money ratio)

    I really want to know if I earn lower amounts than average gamer

    Okies ex-media seller here - how many imps does you site get per month? Now i presume its niche so are you tracking the CTR of banners etc?

    That's your start off point, maybe worth holding it for yourself.

    Another suggestion could be advertorials or paid for email pushes?

    Can't see the site so sorry for a short reply!

    just looking at cpm -possibly 10 plus pounds, decent spot magnitudes this also if you can provide evidence of ctrs. Oh you can have control if you sell directly :) there is a gaming forum for affiliates out there... have a look around. And of course you can increase the CPM!

    This is the YouTube section so I thought it was obvious that I was speaking about my youtube channel...

    Hey bauzz, could you post a link to your YouTube channel? I just wanted to see how it looks and stuff. Or at least can you give some more information about it?

    Thanks in advance!

    I've generally averaged about the same as you... $1/ 1,000 views. Sometimes it's higher (just before school starts and December) and sometimes it's lower (January typically hurts), but that's about where it likes to stay. This year has been a tad low for me.

    I think you join MCN right? MCN can also affect CPM. lolz, think about tags of high CPM, shopping, product,...blah blah and COUNTRY. Add me on Skype, I can tell you more.
