I uploaded a video earlier this month and so far it has gotten over 40,000 views. However, I only generated $4 with the video! What the hell is going on? Has YouTube really sunken this low? I remember getting about $1 for every 1,000-3,000 views last year and prior. The vast majority of my traffic is coming from the US and other 1st world countries. I'm not under a MCN. The average video watch time is 3:30. Although I connected my channel to Vydia once, it has been since disconnected and my MCN is "none" according to SocialBlade and extension plugins like VidIQ. It's also not connected to my Google account and on the Vydia site, my account shows up as "not connected." Is anyone also getting low YouTube payout rates?
