    So I've been having some success with youtube + Adsense. One test that I did was Enabled True-View instream ads on the other day. This boosted my clicks 4x making my ctr go from 1% to 4.5 to 5%.

    So, Here are some numbers and I would like anyone with Youtube/adsense experience to chime in here.

    The other day I had true-view All turned off. I made a $28+ (wont give amount) on roughly 15000 views and 1% CTR. Today, I had 18000 views with True-view on, 4x the amount of CTR and $30+.

    Another big difference was the CPC. Without trueview it averaged 25cents per click. With trueview, 8 cents. What do you guys think would be the BEST way to get the most out of true-view or do you even think its worth it? I'm thinking true-view is a sleazy way to make a fricken nickel at a time.
