Dunno where to put this - maybe the site needs a commerce section....

Talking online to Gustav who has just sold his forum M5board.com, he says he is now concentrating on his youtube channel which has 118 million viewers (his number). 

Not a bad concept - the content providers come for free and line up every weekend to prove whose car is fastest, while someone shoots and ups the clips.  Wish I'd thought of that.

Great money to be made on youtube tho youtube is making it harder with every change they make lately. Theyve really messed up the design of it. Too many people at google making unnecessary changes so that they can justify their jobs at the end of the year.

msboard doesnt seem to be operating.

I've always thought YouTube is an easy way for those with imagination to make a lot of money.

I'm just starting to but boy they make it hard. I'm sure they will fix it up like last time. Last time they made a heap of bad changes and eventually changed it back to almost exactly what they had before, which worked. The latest changes are horrific.

Can someone simplify how you make money from YouTube. Does YouTube pay you for traffic? Or is it by putting ads at the start of videos?

I get paid for youtube and the way it works is first they put ads on your channel and videos and if someone clicks them you get paid and you also get paid for every 1000 impressions(views, comments, likes etc). Most car based channel now get paid for their videos but only the big channels earn good money, I know Shmee150 gets paid in excess of $50k a year.

I feel like putting an ad up - "you are almost the 1,000,000th watcher of my vids"...
