How Much Money Do The Vlogbrothers Earn On YouTube?


The channel has over 2.9 million subscribers as of early 2017 and has accumulated over 640 million views since starting out. The channel averages around 200,000 views per day across all its videos. This should generate an estimated revenue of around $300 per day ($110,000 a year) from ads on YouTube.

YouTubers get paid between $2 – $5 per 1000 monetized views after YouTube takes its cut. Monetized views range from 40% – 60% of the total views. All these are influenced by different factors like device played on, location of the viewer, ad inventory, season, topic, how many ads have been played on a video, ad watch time, ad engagement, placement ads that advertisers choose a specific YouTube channel or video (these are higher paying) etc. to come up with the figure to be paid out.

Vlogbrothers make extra income outside YouTube through merchandise sales. John Green is a best selling author and makes money through book sales.
