Does YouTube Pay You for Your Videos?

Does YouTube Pay You for Your Videos?
There are many ways to make money online. There are blogs, Adsense, affiliate programs and selling products or services. A question that we get a lot is “Does YouTube pay you for your videos?” We answer, yes absolutely! YouTube created a partner program to allow qualified video creators a way to earn revenue from their uploaded videos.

           This means that you are not just promoting your videos on YouTube to get more views. You can actually start earning money while you are advertising your products or services. YouTube receives millions of visitors each month so getting videos out there to make money should be your number one priority.


How to Setup a YouTube Partner Account

You will need to have an existing YouTube account. If you have not done so yet, you must create a user account before you can become a partner. After your account is created, you can begin the process of a partner validation request.

You must have at least 1 video created and uploaded to YouTube. The video must meet the quality standards and community standards before it can be considered. I have found that the easiest way to bypass the strict guidelines is to create a “talking head” video.

   This means just you, or someone that you hire, sitting in front of a camera and making a short 30-second to 1 minute video. YouTube changed its terms of service in 2012 to NOT consider videos for partner programs that contain any of the following:
• Unlicensed background music, live musical performances or popular songs
• Unlicensed clips of movies and photos, video game clips or other people’s video clips
• Any videos that do not give proper credit for licensed uses of content
This means that your account might not get approved if you cannot prove in writing that you own everything in your videos that you upload. If you pay someone on Fiverr or make a video with free software, be prepared to prove that you own the copyright for everything in the video or any of the used content is considered royalty free. It helps to put links in your video descriptions to the terms of service or license for all of your photos, music, video clips and other materials used. YouTube WILL verify this information before any video is approved for its partner program.

How to Make Money with YouTube Videos
When your partner account request is approved, you will need to link it to a Google Adsense account. Ads that are pre-rolled over the top of your videos will be tracked by an Adsense account.
This ensures that one person does not violate the terms of the partner agreement by clicking on his or her video ads 1,000,000 times.

Go to Google’s Adsense page and create a free Adsense account.
 It will automatically sync with your YouTube account when you enable it in the YouTube partner settings section. You will now be ready to start making money from your online videos just like the Internet marketing experts. You will not have to sit and wonder does YouTube pay you for your videos. You will be making money on a daily basis instead.

How much do you earn per day through Google AdSense program?

Google AdSense income! Do you know much about Google AdSense income? Many web sites, blogs, forum post etc. claiming that they earn $1000 or even more through Google AdSense. I spent much time reading these type of articles or pages. But what is the real truth? I will tell you. After reading this page, you have a basic idea about AdSense income. You then easily calculate your the daily income through Google AdSense. Before accessing to main contents, I want to say something about Google AdSense.

What is Google AdSense program?

Google AdSense program is really a reliable program to earn money. If you have a google adsense account, you can easily earn some money through google AdSense program. You just need to insert some lines of code to your web site or blog or forum posts. And that's all. Now, google adsense program will display several ads or google ad based on your contents and thus you can easily earn some money through google AdSense.

Why you use Google AdSense Program?

At first I want to say that Google AdSense Program is a nice program for all types of publishers. There are lots of other program like AdBrite, Clicksor, Bidvertiser, Chitika, AdToll, Exit Junction, Yahoo Publisher Network etc. I already have used several of them and found that Google AdSense is the best among all of them. Moreover, I see that Google AdSense offers the best ads which is very relevant to your content. The earning report of Google AdSense is very transparent and easy to understand to all. So, I personally suggest to use Google AdSense program for earning money.

What is the lie of people to earn money through Google AdSense program?

This section will tell you the great lie of several advertising companies. You might have seen that several advertisers or web publishers or blog owners or software marketing person always advertise that the earn more than $1000 per day.They also even give prove that they earn more than $1000 per day. For example, there is a screen shot which tells that this publisher can earn more than $1000 everyday.
The false earnings of several advertisers to sell or advertise their products
Do you believe this? If yes then answer a question: How much effort and time is needed to earn $1 for you? I think, you already get the answer.
Actually these type of screen shots and prove is totally false. They are just advertising their own products. For example, they just show you their success and at last they offer several courses or books or tutorial materials for some small payments. If they offer one book just $20 and if 1000 people buy that book then the easily get 20000$ dollars. So, they just advertise and earns a lot. So, don't believe their false prove.

Is Google AdSense program is a lie?

No, definitely it's not a lie. Google AdSense Program is the real truth to earn money through Google AdSense. You can really earn some money through Google AdSense easily. If you use Google AdSense program, you may get $100 to 1000$ easily of each month (Remember, I say each month not every day). But to do that you have to work some times. If you are new, please do not think much income at first. Work and wait, you will see that day by day your earnings are increasing. So, you have to wait for some day.

The real scenario of Google AdSense

Do you know how much people generally do income from Google AdSense? I have some friends who are using Google AdSense program more than 1 years ago. I was first introduced to Google AdSense program by my friends. They have several web sites and blogs. They earn money but not huge. In the following table, I will present my four friends income. The following earnings are not my earnings. Those earnings are my four friends earnings. They use only Google AdSense program and earn like:
AdSense Users
Laste Month(June) Income
Last Month (June) Avg. Per Day Income
AdSense User : 01
$72.89
$2.42
AdSense User : 02
$56.01
$1.87
AdSense User : 03
$51.24
$1.70
AdSense User : 04
$38.42
$1.28
The above figure is the real scenario of Google AdSense income. So, don't believe to the advertisers who advertise that they will help you to earn $1000 per day.

How much money is possible to earn through Google AdSense program?

Yes, it's the most critical question to answer. No body can give you the exact answer. People can only guess and then answer.
I will try to answer this question based on my friends earnings. The earnings are totally based on page impressions and clicks. So, the no of visitors of your web page or blog is very important to earn money easily. The more visitors you get, the more you will be able to earn.
Typically, if you get 1000 visitors per day, you may earn $1 to $3 per day. I again tell you this is just the estimation not the real value. If you analysis the above table, you will see this type of situation.
So, you can conclude that if you get 10000 visitors, you may get $10 to $30 per day.

How to increase visitors and increase Google AdSense income?

When people really understand Google AdSense, then they keep attention on the following two things:
  • No of page visitors: If the total no of visitors of your site or blog is increased then the total no of clicks and impressions will also be increased. So, you then earn much easily per day. You can easily increase visitors by publishing contents daily, by telling to the friends of your new published contents, by answering the questions of others of several forums, by answering the comments of your contents, by commenting others posts etc. When the no of page views are increasing, your earning will also be increasing.
  • Placement of Ads of Google AdSense Ads: You also have to find out the better ad placement space. If you place your ads at the end of the page, then you may loose high income. I suggest the following figure to place Google AdSense ads. See the red marked area. This is the best place for showing ads. Later, the orange areas are suitable for Google AdSense ads. So, try to place Google AdSense ads on those places.
By satisfying the above two conditions, you can easily earn much and you will see that Google AdSense income is increasing very rapidly.
Red color and orange color areas are the best suitable place for Google AdSense ads.

How Much Does Google Adsense Pay?

I find that newbies are always wanting to know how much Google Adsense is going to pay before they put it on their sites. As much as I wish it were a simple question to answer, it really isn’t.



So how much does Adsense pay it’s publishers?

Adsense pays on a pay-per-click (PPC) basis, so publishers get paid based on how many clicks they get to their ads. The pay for each click can be as low as pennies and as high as $10 (in very rare cases). From the variety of blogs I have had I would say expecting to be paid 15-50 cents per click is a decent average.
Certain niches will find that they rarely get more than 15 cents a click and other niches may rarely get less than 50 cents per click.
The price is determined by a few factors, but the biggest is the demand from advertisers to advertise for a certain keyword phrase. So, say you write an article called “Gardening tools for beginners”, advertisers who sell gardening tools will essentially be competing to advertise next to your article. If there is a lot of demand from them, then they will have to pay more to advertise next to your article. When they pay more, you will in turn earn more from each click.

Warning: Do NOT click your own ads under any circumstances!

The whole Adsense system is based is dependent on the hope that advertisers are not getting false clicks and as a result they are quick to close the account of anyone who they SUSPECT is generating false clicks. Don’t encourage readers to click them, don’t tell your friends and family to click them, and definitely don’t click them yourself. For as much money as Google makes you can rest assured that they have spent millions of dollars on tools to detect false clicks and they are very good at finding the culprits.

So how do you find Keywords that make more money?

The easiest way to do this is to use the Google Adwords tool. When you get there go ahead and enter a keyword and hit enter. After the results show, click the columns button on the right hand side as shown below.
Google adwords tool for adsense keywords
After you click this, select “Estimated Avg. CPC”. Now you will see your list of keywords and their average CPC that the ADVERTISER will have to pay. I would go ahead and click the Estimated Avg CPC column to sort it from high-to-low like shown below.

Best Practices

I would suggest using these figures as a gauge to which topics and/or niches might have better paying Adsense ads, rather than making assumptions about what you will earn. There are a lot of variables at play and it will be impossible to make accurate predictions on what you will earn.

How I doubled my Google Adsense Earning


Whenever I talk to bloggers who use Google adsense, many complain that they have not yet received their first cheque. Earning through Google Adsense is possible only if you have decent traffic.

Factors you need to analyze and keep track about your blog to increase your Google Adsense Earnings
  1. Quality Traffic – First and foremost important fact is that you need traffic to get clicks on your Adsense ads and to get traffic you need good content and valuable user base. You should work on getting more traffic by using different methods like social network marketing, increasing your RSS feed subscribers, etc
  2. Sources of Traffic – There are different sources of traffic, like Search engines, direct traffic, referral traffic. Search engine traffic and the best source of traffic for many reasons. A visitor coming to your website or blog from a search engine could be a new visitor and could even become a regular visitor. The chances of a search engine visitor to click on a Google Adsense ad is more than any other visitor source.
  3. Topic of your blog – Topic of your blog plays a very important role in increasing your eCPM and CTR of your blog. Some keywords are highly priced in Google Adwords, so if your blog has a topic which has keywords which are highly priced, then the earnings per click on your ads could be high and vise versa.
  4. Good quality content – You might be aware of the saying that “Content is King” and its very much true in the case of visitor, traffic and earnings. Keep your blog updated with fresh and unique content, you will surely get more traffic an subsequently increase in Google Adsense earnings.
  5. Theme or Layout of your blog – Ads should be placed well and should be seen well by your blog readers. I cannot say which layout will work well for your blog, so you need to work on this. Do research on this by changing your blog ads placement. I would advice a text ad above the content, below the title of your blog post and one text ad preferably a 336 x 300 size. You should also try the linked units which work very well for me.
To be very frank, Google adsense does not work well on all kinds of blog, you need to do different experiments with colors of the ads, layouts, placement and other settings.If you have any tested tips on Google Adsense, please feel free to comment.

SONY Personal 3D Viewer

SONY HMZ-T2 3D TV

Sony India introduces Personal 3D Viewer HMZ-T2 at Rs. 69,990
 
Sony has officially launched its Personal 3D Viewer HMZ-T2 . It has been priced around 800$(approx).
 
The Personal 3D Viewer HMZ-T2 comes with a bundled HDMIU cable and can be attached to any device with an HDMI out, be it an XBOX 360, a DVD/BLU-RAY Player or even a receiver. Interestingly, Sony has removed the built-in ear buds that the previous model shipped with, and swapped it out for a regular 3.5mm audio-out jack, making it easy for the user to use any headphone with the unit. This is great if you’re an audiophile, who has invested a lot of money in a set of cans.
We got some eyes-on/heads-on time with this cool little thing and we have to say, it was mighty impressive. The content being played was 1280x720p, which is the T2’s native display resolution. We viewed some 3D content too and were pretty happy to see that there was no cross talk between channels. Sony says that the elimination of cross talk is thanks to two individual OLED screens. The screens have a tru-cinematic 24p mode that will allow very smooth playback of 2D and 3D content.
We got to hear the audio over regular Sony in-the-ear buds and even at 1/4th the volume, the content sounded quite impressive. We turned on the virtual surround mode, but didn’t really notice much of a difference. Could be due to the tiny earphones or it could also be due to not being able to spend a lot of time with the viewer in a quite environment. However, the video was absolutely impressive and immersive. Watching Spiderman 3 on these gave us the feeling of actually sitting in a theater, something that no TV can replicate as of yet (unless your TV is the size of a wall).
We asked the Sony rep whether the T2 viewer could be used for multiplayer co-op action on a PS3 (provided we had two of these) and the answer was a swift “no”. Sony has not yet developed a way to let the PS3 talk to head-mounted rig so it can identify a way to split the signal. Not to mention, a single HDMI-out on the PS3 would make it a little difficult to plug in two of these bad boys. The Sony rep followed up our query by saying that the HMZ-T2 is a personal 3D viewer and multiplayer action isn’t really a “private” thing, so the purpose the device serves becomes different. However, let this not stop you from putting one of these on your head and going online for some crazy fragging action.
The Personal 3D Viewer HMZ-T2 is up for pre-order at select Sony Experience Stores with an expected shipping date of sometime mid-November.
 
Just slip it on your head — and adjust it easily to personal wearing comfort for an exceptionally enjoyable watching and listening experience. Spectacular bigscreen viewing expands before your eyes as sensational surround sound embraces you. Now, movie magic awaits you anytime and anywhere at home with Sony´s new HMZ–T2 Head Mounted Display. Witness striking high-contrast images and ultra-deep black tone with Sony´s self-illuminating OLED display panels.
