Updated on May 2, 2012

Making Money With Youtube

Youtube has become a phenomenal source of entertainment. People are uploading thousands of videos every minute from all around the world, and millions of people are watching videos on youtube every minute. In fact, Youtube continues to be one of the websites that receives more website traffic than any other website. The fact that Youtube receives so much website traffic brings about an opportunity for internet marketing and affiliate marketing, and ultimately making money on the internet. The fact is that Youtube can provide a huge amount of traffic to your websites and to many of the internet promotions that you make money on.

Youtube has a very high pagerank, and a very high alexa rating because it receives so much traffic - and Youtube is owned by Google. This makes it very easy to get traffic to your youtube videos, and rank high in Google search results and Bing search results. Although it may be easier to get more traffic to your youtube videos, many people still find themselves asking the question. How do I make money on Youtube videos, or make money off of other viral youtube videos that other people uploaded?

This is where it gets very fun because you can actually make money on other people's viral youtube videos. For example check out this youtube video below this paragraph, I'm sure you will find it funny, entertaining and it will also show you how people make money on youtube without using Google Adsense or the Youtube partner program.

An Example of How you can make money on Youtube Videos

Now that you have seen those videos, you can see that one of the videos actually has affiliate banners next to the video, and that was very easy to do. The fact is, these videos receive a very substantial amount of traffic because they are viral youtube videos. Its very easy to create affiliate banners for your youtube videos and it really only takes about a minute per banner. It is especially powerful when you find viral videos that are really funny because the youtube videos are already receiving a lot of traffic.

If your wondering how I was able to add affiliate banners to my youtube videos, feel free to check out this STAGED website that helps you make money on youtube.

      I've been watching aoirndd tutorials by Travis and´╗┐ I have to say he did a great job and he deserves a cement full of bacon!. I was thinking if is there any method/activity that will invoke camera's flash(if the phone has a flash of course) so we can use it as light app u know.. click a button on the screen and ur flash will turn on so you have light in darkness any suggestions?

      It is not easy to create a viral Youtube video and making money is easy if you can make a series of popular viral videos.

      I have been through everything I could on youtube to try to add my google adsense to it... just with no success. I have a few videos on there, but they are mostly fun, family stuff, so nothing I really think will (or maybe want) to go viral! Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this!

      I have 83 videos and over 3,000 views. Almost all of them are monetized. The problem for me and for most people is how to get them to go viral. I think it is like winning the lottery, the odds are just to great. A very small percentage will be able to do, most will not.

      Thanks for your hub voting up and SHARING.
