Are you Popular on Social Media?

If you are popular on social media, then you can expect cash coming your way sooner or later. You can earn a lot of money from varied annoying ads which pop up just before the start of the video. But you should know a significant point that, Google receives user’s revenue nearing to 45% of YouTube and after that the remaining amount it hands over to you.

Other significant factors are also considered; below I have listed for your convenience.

What affects the real profit in big manner is block ads and you might be spending a lot of amount in production.

30 Seconds Matters Most

You do not make money based on the number of views but you make money based on the people engagement with the ad. Engagement in this context means, clicking or watching the ad for more than 30 seconds. Adwords platform is managed by YouTube Advertising. Many advertisers prefer ads on a CPC (Cost per Click) or CPV (Cost per View) model.

Advertisment Types

CPC (Cost per Click)

For CPC, the advertiser pays money depending on the clicks. If a specific keyword has a CPC nearing to Rs.100 and if someone clicks on an ad, then the advertiser would be charged about Rs.100.

During the video, varied text ads, pop up in the lower part of the screen, we also observe square banner does appear on the right side.

CPV (Cost per View)

For CPV, advertisers pay money depending on the views. According to the advertiser, a view means someone watches an ad for minimum 30 seconds or watches half ad. Even if a user clicks the ad more than 100 times, but the advertiser would not shell more money because they are not paying based on clicks but they are paying based on the view.


These ads appear before the video begins and viewers can choose to skip them after five seconds and these ads act as a preview.

  • In Search ads: They appear in the search results and they are surrounded by a light yellow box.
  • In-Display Ads: In the suggested video area, these ads show up on the right side.
  • Third party Pre-roll ads: Lastly, we find there are third party pre-roll ads which forces the users to watch for a specific amount of time. These forced ads do not apply to the majority, so you may skip concentrating on it.
