GeoWizard is a British content creator based in the United Kingdom whose real name is Tom Davies. He has an estimated net worth of $500,000. He is known for his skill at GeoGuessr which is a browser game where one is given a semi-randomized Google Street View location then one must guess where it is. He also does a series called “Straight Line Missions” where he attempts to hike across countries in as close to a straight line as possible. He chooses a route, uploads it to a handheld GPS and he starts his journey. He has a grading system for himself to determine his success rate in following the linear route. He posts an average of 2 – 4 videos a week on a regular basis.
How Much Money Does GeoWizard Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 1.2 million subscribers as of 2021 and has accumulated over 150 million views so far. It is able to get an average of 280,000 views per day from different sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of $2,200 per day ($800,000 a year) from the ads that appear on the videos.
YouTube content creators based in the US, UK, Canada and Australia generally get paid $2 – $12 per 1000 monetized views after YouTube takes its cut. Monetized views usually range from 40% – 80% of the total views. All these are influenced by several factors like the device played on, time of the year, the location of the viewer, ad inventory, how many ads there are on a video, how many people skip the ads, type of advertisement, ad engagement, type of content, etc. The cost of an ad view is based on an auction between advertisers based on views. Advertisers have to bid a minimum of $0.01 per view.
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.
