    I have 4 youtube videos. 2 of the videos have gone viral. The 1st video has 50k views now. The 2nd video has 30k views. These were posted just around a month ago. Can you please suggest to me how to best monetize these videos? The videos are music compilations. Thanks for the help guys.

    Since they are music compilations you can't use Adsense unless you have the rights to the music. You could put CPA offers in the description but don't direct link because you can get your videos taken down if reported.

    Best to redirect a domain or create a landing page.

    You should keep in mind that that kind of traffic, specifically for music compilations, is when someone opens it and either minimizes the window or changs the tab, for the songs only. Few of those who might click, are again not going to be very targeted because many people listen music on YT anyway. So it will be a pure luck tho.. I have few song videos made by me (videos) but copyright songs, have them on first place in YT search and few millions views. Kinda tried a lot, and figured it out it wasn't worth it. The only thing that worth it was to put the link of a FB fan page and that way I made a FB page made out of real people.

    But you can try, check out that dr beats affiliate program or something like that, but don't pu high hopes in there..

    thanks madruga and gullsinn for the suggestions. what if i redirect to an amazon mp3 page. i know commission is so low for mp3 ($0.99 per song x 4%) but for impulsive buyers it may add up.

    I think you will need a page of ours that connects YT with Amazon, because if you will connect it straight away you might have problems on both ends... suspnded account, video down, stuff like that. Make a site with music and target impulsive buyers, but the internet and selling music these days... a pint in the ass if you ask me :)
