10 Highest Paid Youtube Partners

294

 

There are 10 Youtube Partners who made over $100,000 in the past year, according to a study done by analytics and advertising company TubeMogul. From July 2009 to July 2010, TubeMogul used their viewership data to estimate the annual income for independent YouTube partners, which they define as anyone who is not part of a media company or brand.


Here’s how they got their estimates:

  • Revenue only comes from banner ads served near content (we ignored pre-roll or overlay since we can’t easily isolate by publisher).
  • Since YouTube banner ads have a two-second load delay, we estimate 2.59% of viewers click away before an ad loads based on separate research.
  • Ads were served near all videos that loaded (since they are partners, this is generally true).
  • CPM for the banner ads was $1.50 (Google auctions a lot of this inventory off; we rounded this 2009 estimate down to be conversative).
  • YouTube is splitting ad revenue with partners 50-50.

Yeah, because you magically knew that 9 million people that follow Pewdiepie are kids. Grow up, retard. You just hate on Pewdiepie because its what the ‘big boys’ are doing, and you don’t wanna be any different.

Youtube “celebrities” are losers who are only followed by naive teenagers. No one with any taste would watch this amateur crap.
