How to Use the YouTube Money Calculator

 This estimates your earnings before Youtube’s cut. (Although YouTube traditionally kept its share of advertising income secret, it is now common knowledge that Google keeps 45% of YouTube advertising revenue. So you receive 55% of every dollar paid by advertisers) The estimated earnings that the average YouTube creator could expect to receive from ads on a new video on their channel if EVERYBODY watched the ad on their video and the advertiser paid the average $7.60 CPM is 55% x $7.60, equaling $4.18 per 1,000 views.

It has taken a while for internet marketing to really catch on, but now it is of major importance to brands. Companies spend considerable sums on internet advertising, particularly on platforms such as Google Adsense. Although Google keeps a chunk, the rest goes to website owners who place Adsense ads on their web pages and blogs.


The largest website of all, according to Alexa, is Google itself. The second largest site (since April 2016) is YouTube. So it is probably no surprise that YouTube is very important to Google in terms of AdSense revenue. It has to be remembered, of course, that Google owns YouTube, doubling its importance as an advertising platform. Possibly this is the reason why Google has different rules for AdSense on YouTube compared to AdSense on other video platforms.

Steps to Follow to enable Monetization of Your Videos

You cannot just post a video on YouTube and hope it earns you cash - this would not work even if you were lucky enough for the video to go viral. There are a few steps you have to do before YouTube allows you to monetize your videos

  1. Enable your account for monetization - this is ticking a monetization option in your YouTube account, and agreeing to the YouTube monetization agreement
  2. Connect your channel to an AdSense account - either create a new AdSense account or attach this YouTube channel to an existing account you have
  3. Review video criteria and ad formats - YouTube will only allow you to monetize what they consider “advertiser-friendly” videos. This means you cannot charge for videos showing violence or nudity, and in particular, you agree that your videos are not breaking any copyright laws (you need to be particularly careful when using background music). You also get to choose which types of ads you want, e.g. display ads around your video, overlay videos, skippable video ads, or a number of other types)
  4. Set up either a single video or specific multiple videos to be monetized.

Once you have done these steps, and been accepted for monetization by YouTube, get busy making and promoting videos. You will need to create a large collection of well-promoted videos to start making any decent level of income.
