Make More Money on YouTube - I spend time so you don't have to! ;-)

Last Update: October 26, 2019

1 week ago I published a blog post here at Wealthy Affiliate with a title, More YouTube Ads -> More Views + More $

I had noticed that adding more ads to videos brings more YouTube ad revenue.

Some other YouTubers had noticed that adding ads to YouTube videos also increases your views.

Therefore, I thought why wouldn't I go on and add even more ads to my videos.

I added one in-between ad to every 2,5 - 3,5 minutes on my videos. For example, 3 in-between ads in a 11-minute video.

It took a few hours do that because I did that for for over 70 different videos.

I did that one week ago.

Now based on results from this week, that actually dropped my ad revenue and watch time slightly.

(Keep in mind that we're not talking about any big amounts here yet but everything compounds of course over the time course.)

The time will show if the earnings will come back as YouTube optimizes the ads.

But with my current researches it seems that the optimal amount of in-between ads for a 11-minute video is 2 ads.

=> 1 ad for every 3-5 minutes.

In the make money online niche, if you have a lot of views, you can potentially make even good money with YouTube ads. Over $20 ad revenue per 1,000 views are completely possible.

If you would get 10,000 views per day, that could make $200 from just ads. And usually ad revenue is secondary as the earning potential from affiliate promotions is much higher.

Anyways, that's all for today. I'll go to prepare more vidoes now to my channel! ;)

Do you have some "ahaa moments" of creating videos on YouTube?

Thanks for this, I just started my YT channel: Burrowgroves School of Magic, featuring an inept substitute magic school teacher, lol. I've only begun and am learning the ropes, but have been publishing a new episode every Friday and already have 12 subscribers - yay!

Thanks for sharing this info, I have a YouTube channel but it's not on the money making niche and my channel growing is still slow.
Hoping to reach soon the time to be able to add ads on my videos.
