Thread Name: You Tube Income ?
Subject: RE: You Tube Income ?
2 step process. They will offer but not let you do it till you reach a certain level of views, so the offers that some of you have are just to opt-in to their radar. Over a year went by between my 2 steps.

To make any real money you gotta have something go viral. Million views and such.

My film work for Alpaca Pictures gets a lot of views, a lot more than my silliness at least, and even they just get a trickle of $10 to $40 a month.

Zero intellectual property concerns, they take not ownership or go anywhere near that. Owned by Google, its all the same big engine that succeeds for them only when it succeeds for you so they want you to succeed and will give you good advice.

My objection is that the ads are over top of the content blocking a part of the video. That is unacceptable to my art or my silliness. So I don't do it, and I complain a lot.
