Generating high quality content counts in a huge way today, especially on Youtube

When we learn to generate high quality content over time, and especially on sites like YouTube (Example of a channel that was customized for earning higher stats, and revenue by helping people worldwide with technical info), we can truly help others in many ways, and besides that of ourselves when it comes to receiving monetary rewards. What's been learned recently by the author of this very hub article has opened his eyes to understand, that it isn't all about how many times we share our content with others.

It is imperative for us all to learn balance in how we produce web content, and how we choose to promote it all. What we produce today is also suggestive of what we've managed to come up with, our true online potential as a curator, as an expert in any field or trade. This also goes for whatever potential we have mustered up over time, and sharing is an important key factor, but not as important as our overall integrity to be a true and real person, to be genuine, to be trustworthy, and to maintain stability and consistency throughout everything we partake in today online.

This video is an example of learning to master online tools and research, make sure to research as much as you can locate


Why taking a stand is important

Choosing to take a stand of your own in terms of making your online presence not only known, but much more professional, and real, to then make yourself much more accountable, to comply with all of the online regulations which pertains to how we decide to publish web based content makes all the difference.

Utilizing online platforms such as YouTube to help us learn to assist others, will do such a thing today, and this could be done by anyone using other online tools such a Screenr (Hub article relating and teaching about the cool screen casting network).

You will also need a high quality video camera, or camcorder. (Try Toshiba's new Camileo x400 or better versions, they work wonders for video quality, and for amateurs just getting started)

Screenr (Official website) is a online screen recording tool, which requires no downloading whatsoever $6. Once you have learned to master any network online, and choose to teach, tutor, train, or help others learn as well, you can use it to generate highly informative videos. When you have completed each video, from that point there will be options provided for you to either share it socially as a screen cast, or publish it onto Youtube.

Learn the Youtube powers of monetization & copyrights

YouTube allows its partners to publish copyrighted content that you have been exclusively been given the rights to use only by the copyright owner themselves. They do not allow monetization of any copyrighted works of others you have no permission to share on your videos there.

If you create a tutorial screen cast of web based content or that of software, from a video game, of music or what have you, make sure not to monetize it, and if you indeed have made such videos they must be for non-profit educational purposes only to be safe, according to Youtube's copyright page. (This doesn't release you from the official copyright owners terms of use, and End-User License Agreement (EULA) or License terms.)

Follow link provided here to learn more, and for copyright issues on Youtube. Do your own research as well, and never follow any web location that tells you otherwise accept from the true source of such relevant info.

Where are the benefits?

The real benefits come in long term, when you decide to follow such a trend as Microsoft's new release of the Windows 8 operating system. If you time it right, and create as many informative videos in every possible aspect of the subject matter, even using reviews to help guide users the way to what you've learned.

You can become an expert in the area over time, and the subject matter expert as well. This is what is called owning a Niche on the web, and is the direct pathway to achieving true online success today for sure.

A Research Goddess

Doing the much needed research

Research is the other factor that will need to be done to get the relevant information, you will truly need to be armed with, so that your online tutorials you make can come out with such an in-depth relevant and knowledgeable insight, with actual references to supportive materials that will make your videos, and successive articles have even more reputability.

It also helps to enhance your knowledge on the subject, which will make you further be able to explain in great detail as to how this pertinent info can help potential users or buyers of such a product or service much more.

Those folks who choose to do their web research tend to fair off better online, then those who choose not to. This is seen by the vast amounts of web traffic one web location receives in comparison to another that doesn't quite do as well. This difference of online success to online failure, may be due to the very factors of such relevance being placed into action with links that refer back to the true source of such web based content and many other technical elements at play.

The other factors are based on entertainment value, attractiveness, as well as usefulness of any web locations content. If such a video channel location per-say isn't created for high quality, it can surely break its long term success potential like anything online related. So be sure to think before creating your content, as to what specific purpose you are making it for, the niche it will fit into, and what target audience you seek to aim at focusing upon, so your viewers can help you drive your stats up and up the charts online and on Youtube especially.

This is why certain hubbers for instance are capable of generating huge amounts of hub views, and others aren't able to do such a thing. The way the web works is that by using effective keywords/meta tags, that pertain to the authors title, and subject matter relevance, the bots will scan for quality assurance, and accuracy on all scales, plus for subject matter relevance to reference materials.

If your hub article or web page happens to be lucky enough to pass that rigorous thorough website inspection (From Google, and Hubpages bots), then it is up to all the people surfing the web for such a high quality web page you've generated to help it get indexed, as well as that of your fellow hubbers views of it as well. (Knowledge on good SEO can help users improve and optimize their web locations)

Current trends do well, but for a limited time only, and then the traffic dies down, but evergreen content does better, which is that of highly detailed and researched useful subjects, that people search for all year round, such as food, things people utilize for daily consumption, or daily usage, so on and so fourth.

A research library worked wonders years ago, but online you need to do research from various sources, don't forget to provide a link

Pinpoint accuracy is a must with content curation and web research

Be as accurate as you can be all throughout your video, and article creations, because much of it will have to stand the test of time, plus you may be having to embrace the responsibility of getting viewers from all around the globe.

This newly found responsibility will lay heavy on the sharing factors, and elements in which your videos possess, there are flagging options available on Youtube videos, and everywhere else on the web today, so keep in mind integrity weighs in heavily for sure as well.

      Great article! I hope to learn more. I have a YT channel that is not monetized. I have thought about monetizing my videos, but I'm still on the fence. And I'm not really sure how to do it.

      Thank you @Austinstar, I'm happy you decided to comment, and read up on my hub here, I hope you figure it all out and all.

      Good luck if you haven't yet tried it there on Youtube, it works wonders for me today, and I hope others can find such use of this info as well.

      @flashmakeit, hi there yes indeed Screenr works wonders, but how in the world did you download it. I use the online version and didn't even know they had a download for it.

      Thanks for the visit, and for the comment as well as for the compliment you left me up there.

      I try my best to sound out words accurately, but need improvement on being much more clear about what I'm actually saying before trying to get into voice acting. I have a long ways to go for sure, but thanks again for such a suggestion, I am flattered now.

      I tried other screen recording tools, and I found that I love Screenr much more better, but to each ones own for sure.

      Thanks for the cool comment and for giving my hub here a chance, as well as for sharing that was cool of you to do.

      Lots of helpful info here. Maybe it will make more sense to me after a couple of cups of coffee and a Monster.

      Thanks! Voted up and bookmarking for future use.

      I did download screenr and did a test video but I am not savvy as you are with videos presentations and you have a distinguished speaking voice which would be great for voice acting. This hub was very useful and interesting.

      I believe screenr lasts about 5 minutes. Screencastomatic lasts about 15 minutes with no downloading required. It's a valuable one to look at also. Thanks for the informative hub.

      Janine I just got from researching intensely to determine if monetizing my videos there I made was legal to do or not, and it depends now on the determining factors of the Eula agreement of any online software, or physical software, so I adjusted this hub a bit, to fix such a misunderstanding I had, from reading the Youtube copyright info I had located.

      I will dig much deeper to see what I can squeeze out, Youtube is a tough nut to crack when it comes to what is appropriate there or not, and so I will try to do many more hubs on it all to hep clarify the rulings and all in the near future for sure.

      Thanks for giving my hub here a good read, chat with you soon.

      Wow, I really am a complete novice on YouTube, but am pinning this, because you truly did your research here (like I'd expect anything else). Great job and have voted and shared all over, too!!

      Thanks Bill, I was editing this bad boy as you came through to comment, LOL.

      Cool stuff bro, I will try to generate more of this sort of assistance to help others with all the technical stuff, so the playing field can be leveled a bit for folks.

      It isn't fair that so many people are earning hub rewards, and others aren't because they lack such Intel, and so I'm doing my best to get the word out as you very well know Bill.

      Thanks for stopping by and for sharing as usual, chat with you soon on FB.
