    I highly doubt people can make 1.5 million per year via youtube. My friend has a small/medium following and makes a few hundred a month.

    1 million a year and they still live in a small crappy apartment?

    yeah, i stopped at #5, those numbers are erroneous. maybe a couple of thousand a month, Pewdiepie might get 10k a month seeing as he's 2nd.
    but millions is just lol!

    this guy doesn't know what he's talking about though. money is only given out for ad clicks if i recall, and adblock works on youtube videos too, so....

    90% of youtuber are kids under 18. Study math? $#@! that let watch youtube. Every click = a view and these ppl try to sell their followers and views to advertising company as "hey u can sell product to my viewers who are stupid teens". And don't forget the youtube subscriber scam where everyone subscribe each other lol.

    soon other country like China & India will over take America in tech, science, and engineering...cause all the kids of America is majoring in Youtube class since an engineering degree yr salary cant match a youtuber monthly salary.

    and i assume you've looked directly at the Earnings part and ran with that yes?

    potential [pəˈtɛnʃəl]
    adj
    1.
    a. possible but not yet actual
    b. (prenominal) capable of being or becoming but not yet in existence; latent
    as i said, Youtube pays per ad click, that statistic website has no idea how many people are clicking those, and as such, has collated the total amount the channel could get.

    then you have adblock which blocks youtube, videos where the uploader intentionally disables ads etc. and the number goes even lower.

    how many people even click on ads? very few would be my guess.

    EDIT:
    for the record 10K is still a lot of money to get in a month! thats 120K a year! that's more then engineers earn after spending 6 years in Uni!

    I have looked over the CPM'S

    And did not even look at the potential earnings as that is a very misleading number, I looked at the numbers over the past 28 days estimates...

    These numbers are not so far-fetched so thats why I but a heavy emphasis on "ESTIMATED"...

    But just because its estimated does not mean its false...

    Youtubers do make a decent earning. Even those who have 10k or so subscribers will earn a nice financial relief.

    indeed, but millions of dollars is way too much. Youtube probably requires a sizeable chuck of that revenue to actually host their 1080p, 15min video's that prolly weigh in at around 1-2GB each

    as i edited in my post above, 10K a month is unreal amounts of money in itself.

    also note that bigger youtubers will sponsor businesses, and get free stuff. i think Razer hook Pewdiepie up with gaming laptops and such yeah?

    you're basing a years income on 28 days? o_O

    how is that extensive, just out of curiosity?

    this is much much better video of youtube. satirical yes, but way more relevant imo:

    Yeah no way they make that much. Epic Meal Time and Fps Russia make good money but they don't make that much and they are in the upper tier of youtubers.

    What these aren't factoring in is the fact a ton of people use adblock. Still, they make a ton of cash if they make 0.5-2.5 per 1000 ad views.
