How Much Money Does The Food Ranger Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 700,000 subscribers as of mid-2017 and has accumulated over 90 million views so far. It is able to get around 230,000 views per day from a wide variety of sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of around $400 per day ($150,000 a year) from ads.
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 several factors like device played on, the location of the viewer, ad inventory, how many ads there are on a video, how many people skip the ads, ad engagement etc.
There is also a program known as Google Preferred where deep-pocketed companies can target ads on the top 5% most popular content. The ad rates here are higher than normal. Apart from ads, YouTubers also generate extra from YouTube Red viewers who pay a monthly fee to view premium content on YouTube plus watch videos without ads.
