    Hi Guys,

    So about 2 weeks ago i was thinking about starting to market my CPA offers on YouTube, as i know it gets tons of traffic, but iv been reading about the forums and iv seen people constantly saying 'YT is dead' or 'Theres no money to be made on YT' .. At first i started to believe it, and fell back a bit, but i thought what the hell and decided to take action ...

    Day 1 i made a small, 3 minute video which was basically a compilation of images from Google, and a song played over the top of the slideshow .. took me 25 minutes to make it! I added a link at the end for a Email submit paying $1.40 CPA, and i also added the link in the description ..

    I then uploaded it to my channel which had 0 other videos, no subscribers ..Nothing! .. I called the video 'bla bla bla + FREE bla bla bla'

    A few hours later, i had 13 views! i know your thinking L O L, 13 views?? And so was i, because i wasnt excpecting any views until i did some SEO and got it recognized, BUT, i logged into my CPA account and saw ..

    2 conversions!! Thats 2 conversions from 13 views of a YT video! $2.80 from 13 views .. Thats $1.40 per 6/7 views!! Once again, il say its definitely not a lot, but the video i have made has competitors with hundreds of thousands of views, so if i can get my video recognised and even get half of that traffic, il be making bank if these conversions stay up, and thats from only 1 video!!

    Anyway, my point is .. YouTube is still a great source for traffic and to make some good $$$ on! So any of you non believers who feel otherwise (like me a few weeks ago) .. Just take action!!

    Best of Luck!!

    YouTube certainly isn't dead, I made around 10k of unique visitors in only 4 days although my website was still new.

    So yeah, it's great source of traffic and you can easily make shitload of cash with it.

    You guys have got it all wrong, Youtube is completely dead and all the money dried up. Move along, nothing to see here.

    YouTube will always be one of the best sources of traffic , I think it's a better source of traffic then google ( i know it sounds silly :p , if you devide the number of unique visitors yt gets each day to the number of videos and do the same thing for google you will see that yt is favored :p ).
