Well the so called big timers on youtube who have hundreds of thousands of subscribers and hundreds of thousands of views on each video are part of a partner program with Google and they get paid because they generate that kind of traffic.

For some it's like a full time job.

You'll be surprise how much they make... The top subscribed youtubers can make almost 70 grands a year! Of course they don't go out telling everyone that, it is competitive.

You guys don't notice that all their videos revolve around advertisments? Some youtuber even advertise a product blatantly and get paid for it.

They do it for validation, to prove their existence to themselves.

My video of Matt's car just hit enough views to allow me to join the partnership program! Woot! I'M GONNA BE RICH, BITCHES!


On a side note though, I guess I'll let you know how much coin it brings in. It'd be cool to have a few extra cents a month.

I don't know about 75k a month. LOL Maybe over a 100k a year because even if they get paid 1 penny per view, they'll make 10k in 1million views haha, but damn 75k a month? Neverrrrrrrr. And Urban, hook it up with the job when you're done. hahaha
