One of the hardest friggin things to find in the world, is some sort of description about how much money YouTube stars make. If you look on the youtube page itself, they direct you here - to an absolutely worthless page: http://www.youtube.com/t/partnerships_success It seems to be the case that Fred and iJustine make a few hundred thousand dollars a year (on purely channel income) But how much does the more "typical youtuber make"? - a typical dude who is "mildly popular" -- with video views in the, say, tens of thousands or less? There are several youtube videos in which, youtubers say they "make enough to pay the bills". So I assume several of them are at least making a coupled thousand a month. Question: Would a "volume approach" to youtube work? For example, the thing about YouTube is almost no one there understands SEO, and no one properly fills out the video description box. So one wonders, if you were to, say, put up thousands upon thousands of videos, and give the title some sort of keyword phrase from the Google Keyword Tool, could you make money? e.g. even if the videos were not that great, but were SEO optimized. And, moreover, even if the videos only got a few hundred views a year -- could the fact that you produced thousands upon thousands of videos, actually enable you to make a good living? Any ideas? Thanks!
