    okay so i made a really nice channel with awesome relevant very useful content that a lot of people actually watch. I used vagex SYV to get up there and get 100k views in less then a week. 50k of them were monetizable views. So youtube reports to me that i have 11.5k mobilizable views and 33 cents estimated earnings and google adsense reports that i have only made 2 dollars so far.
    What the hell? 11.5k monetizable views is at least 23 dollars. plus i had like 50k monetizable views so i should have been paid 100 bucks.

    WOW, that's frickin appalling man. I mean, 33 cents estimated earnings for all those views..that's stupid. Waste of views you spent time getting.

    wtf do you mean, google never pays less then 92 cents per 1000 views.
    that's the baseline fact, that's why youtube is full of fag 12 year olds making millions.
    your message is very discouraging, instead of stopping what i do, i want an explanation to why youtube hasn't paid me. surely there is one.

    If I ever had a monetization form for my videos that paid 11.5k views -> just 23$ I wouldn't be very happy and would probably investigate something a little less shady than G in terms of "check sending partner".. HTH.. ;)

    Sounds like far too much work for such small change. Even $60 would hardly worth it when you likely put far more then 10 hours into it

    Some of you guys are not understanding the point of this thread. He is angry because he doesn't believe Google is properly crediting him for the standard rate that he believes they should pay per 1,000 views. But monetizable views and valid views are not the same thing. You can't get angry with Google for not crediting you for a certain amount of views, when you admit you cheated their system. That isn't fair to Google.

    Run more tests to try to get higher CPM. You aren't going to get credit in Adsense for every view. Not all of them are valid for calculating your payout.

    But I don't have my monitization when i boost. I boost then turn it on.




    I did a lot of research and most youtubers all refer to one dude who once got 92 cents per 1k views as being the lowest ever.
    So according to my own stats. its usually 3-4 cents per click, 11% clicks. so 1000 views means 110 clicks at 3-4 cents each. seems way higher then the 92 cents.

    anyway to make it more clear. I don't turn on any monetization at all, I get all my views first from vagex/svy/utubeviews. Then after all of them are done, I turn on the monetization. They are all valid desktop views.

    Google says that 97% of my views are mobile views, How can I possibly have 90 thousand mobile views? I probably used like 20k vagex desktop views, atleast.
