    I have had my channel for a couple of months. I have had videos go viral during that time and then higher paid ad networks will kick in and show their ads on my videos resulting in a RPM of 2 dollars which is good to me.

    However: when nothing is going viral ( most of the time naturally ) and I am just getting my regular views from compilations and stuff my RPM is like 0,40 - 0,60 dollars. And those compilations are pretty high ranked and getting me 20 000 - 30 000 analytics page views a day. How come the RPM can be so low for videos that are getting that amount of views a day? I know its not a huge amount, but it should still be worth more than 0,40 RPM? The compilations are mostly animals, cheaters getting caught and fights.

    I am from Sweden and I read that ad views pay more from countries like USA and Canada so I changed the video locations to USA, which seem to increase the views from USA but RPM is still low

    Does anybody know what might help this newbie out with a higher RPM?

    By the way, I realize that fighting videos might scare away high paying advertisers. But most of my videos are not fighting related and in no way controversial.

    Nobody knows why the RPM might be so long and what I might be able to do about it?
