How Much Money Does Josh Paler Lin Earn On YouTube?
Josh’s main YouTube channel has over 2.7 million subscribers and has accumulated over 400 million views since January 2010. He uploads one prank or social experiment video per month and the videos in his channel generate an average of 250,000 views per day. This should in turn generate an estimated revenue of around $450 per day ($165,000 a year) from YouTube advertisements on the videos.
The vlogging channel is still small with just over 200,000 subscribers and averages around 5,000 views per day. These views generate an estimated revenue of around $10 per day.
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. Here they get paid based on watch time on their videos. The longer the viewers watch their videos, the more money they earn.
