Make Money with Youtube

With the popularity of the Internet and the high cost of gasoline, many people are turning to making money online through blogging. There are literally millions of people each day starting online businesses. I recently came across a man who just quit his job because his Youtube channel is now bringing in more money than his day job. There are numerous great ways to make money online. Social media is the gateway to avenues such asHubpages and WebAnswers. You may also earn a healthy income if you make your own blog, or by writing eBooks and selling for major profit, and of course Youtube.

YouTube is the biggest video-sharing website online. All you have to do is go to Google and ask a question such as ," how do I start a Hubpages account", and you will see, on page one, at least one demo from Youtube on how to create a Hubpage account. The volume of new videos being uploaded by the minute is astounding.

A major advantage that Youtube has over other video channels is that it is the property of Google, and is therefore integrated within Google searches. If you have a blog or website that you intend to grow as much as possible, Youtube is and excellent supplemental tool for gaining search traffic.

One of the main elements to getting your video seen by your target audience, is to make friends with other users, by sharing videos with others and subscribing to their channels.

You Should Consider the Benefits of Creating a Channel of Your Own.

Once you have recorded your video, you will need to create your YouTube account to upload your videos.

Settings: Here you can edit the channel title. Include your brand name in here if you can, as well as general keywords that relate to your business in the channel tags section.

Themes and colors: This is where you can change the colors to be consistent with your brand colors. If you have access to Css, you can create your own theme using your own custom color palette by selecting the shadow advanced options link.

Modules: Select the information elements you want displayed on your channel page such as your friends, subscribers, and comments on your channel. These are all checked by default, so un-check any that you don't want displayed.

Always think about search engines:

Google's search results pull in video content, meaning that if you take the time to optimize your video properly, it will be highly visible in search results, which will result in good amount of extra traffic being driven to your videos. Besides making your video visible on Google's search results, optimizing your videos ensures that you're visibility on internal YouTube searches too.Resulting in more friends, more views, and a high ranking. The search function on YouTube is the main way people find videos, so it's important to make your video page relevant to the keywords people are entering in searches.


  1. using a resource like Google's keyword tool can help you find keywords to target your market.
  2. Include the keywords in your title.
  3. Generate views. YouTube ranks videos not only as by on page relevance, buy also using like views, shares, ratings, and comments.
