How does YouTube make money?

How does YouTube make money?  – Simple, YouTube will generate likes and subscribers which will bring traffic to your website. You will probably hear many times people telling you “The money is in your list” they mean your list of subscribers and the quickest way to generate a list is on YouTube.

Once you are established on YouTube as a regular affiliate who posts weekly, or daily (Even better) you will eventually get an email from YouTube saying that YouTube would like you to join their Partnership program.

This means YouTube will allow you to put Google Adsense on the pages where you’ve got your videos on YouTube, and if anyone clicks on those ads… You get a commission!

Okay granted, it is not a lot, in fact, it’s can be anything from 1 cent to a couple of dollars per click but that doesn’t matter because over time those pennies add up as your presence on YouTube grows. When you have a hundred videos uploaded that are again, getting thousands of views every single day! As you can see, this adds up to be a pretty tidy sum that builds up nicely in your Google Adsense account.

The point is money can come in from many sources not just your website and every little bit helps.

Most viewers will not be bothered about the ads popping up before the video. They can click them off if they choose, but most people usually sit through a 10 to 15-second add unless they have seen it before. I would recommend starting to make as many videos as you can and upload them to YouTube. Over time, the views will come and as result… So will the invitation to join the YouTube Adsense Partnership program.

YouTube is also an awesome way to brand yourself as an authority in your niche. Over time you will be an authority from the hundreds of hours spent writing and researching for your blog. The best thing about YouTube is the traffic you get is 100% free and it’s totally “set & forget”.

Once you have your primary and secondary keywords then you need to create a YouTube video title

Using the online character count as you cannot have any more than 100 characters in your YouTube video. Try to use all 100 characters to increase your chance of ranking with your primary and secondary keywords.

YouTube ranks from top to bottom in order in their suggested videos list.

Once you have your title upload your video using your new title.

Then add your primary keywords in front of your secondary keywords then put them in your tag section. (This increases your ranking on YouTube)

Then fill in the description and put in a plug to your website then put the title of the video and description.

And don’t forget to ask your viewers to like and subscribe at the end of the description

(DO NOT KEYWORD STUFF THE DESCRIPTION BOX) This is a NO NO and you can get banned from YouTube for doing this.

Upload your video with its new researched keyword rich title.

This will generate likes and subscribes which will bring traffic to your website.

After 2 days your ranks will begin to slip. You can post a new video once a week but every day is optimum.
