How much can you earn from 1000 YouTube views

If you frequently use YouTube without a premium account, you are likely to encounter advertisements. Typically, ads are shown before the start of a video, but they can also appear multiple times during playback.

Many people are curious about how much YouTube pays video creators, specifically how much YouTube pays for 1000 views. Let's delve into this question further in the article.

The principle of earning on YouTube

"YouTube" doesn't pay video creators out of its own pocket. It is more accurate to say that YouTube shares the money it receives from advertisers. Here's how it works: people purchase advertising on the platform, and in return, YouTube inserts those ads into videos. YouTube keeps a portion of the revenue, while the rest is given to the creator.

To be eligible for monetization, a channel must have at least 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 hours of total watch time. The minimum payout is $100.

What factors affect earnings and how to increase them

The earnings of authors from the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) differ from those of Western authors. In the CIS, they receive approximately $2-4 per 1000 views, while Western authors earn around $7 within that range. It's not a malicious conspiracy; it's simply because the advertising market is larger in the West, and the cost of advertising is higher.
But GEO is not the only factor that influences how much YouTube pays for 1000 views. The channel's theme and audience are also important.

Audience: If the channel's primary audience is children, the earnings from the partnership program will significantly decrease. The logic here is simple: children don't have money, so expecting purchases from them is not realistic. Conversely, if a channel has an adult and financially capable audience, the income from advertising will naturally increase.

Theme: There are certain themes that don't monetize well, such as pranks, entertainment, reactions, and others. These channels predominantly attract an audience that is not financially capable, resulting in lower advertising rates (and thus lower earnings for the author).

On the other hand, there are "profitable" themes such as business, startups, automobiles, news, and politics. Serious individuals who are willing to pay are part of these themes' audience. However, it's worth noting that creating content for such themes is more challenging, but that's a different story.

Earnings on YouTube in 2022

The thing is, you won't earn much on a single partner program. Content creators need to accumulate millions of views on their videos to make significant earnings, and achieving such metrics can be challenging. One strategy that works is to upload popular videos on your channel. This approach works as long as the content creators don't strike you or the algorithms don't catch you using non-original content. Dealing with algorithms can be relatively easy—check out separate resources on how to bypass copyright claims on YouTube videos.

To earn more, YouTubers engage additional sources of income. Let's briefly discuss the main ones.


Integrations refer to when a creator includes a sponsored video clip within their content. Please note that this should not be confused with regular ad placements from YouTube itself.

Here's how it works: A company contacts a content creator, they negotiate a price, and if everything is agreed upon, the creator includes the integration at the beginning, middle, or end of their video.

Typically, companies request integrations on niche channels. For example, a mobile game developer might find it advantageous to advertise through a gaming review content creator, while a car dealership might choose to collaborate with automotive review bloggers.

Affiliate Links

Affiliate, or partner links, are a good way for niche bloggers to earn money. For example, if a content creator runs a channel about personal development, education, and similar topics, they may be offered a partnership with an online school.

The creator would then place affiliate links beneath their videos, and whenever people purchase a course through those links, they would receive a percentage of each sale.


Donations come into play when a blogger gathers a loyal audience. Donations refer to voluntary contributions made by channel subscribers to support the content creator.

Many bloggers ask their viewers to support their channel with monetary donations in order to improve content quality, purchase equipment, and ensure consistent release of new content. Many subscribers are willing to contribute if they find the content useful or interesting.

However, if a blogger is already monetizing their channel through YouTube's partner program, integrations, and affiliate links, it may be considered poor etiquette to ask for additional donations. In such cases, it is usually done the other way around: the blogger deliberately avoids promoting anything and instead asks for donations to sustain the project independently.

Earnings from YouTube Premium Subscribers

Recently, users have been given the option to watch videos on YouTube without ads by subscribing to YouTube Premium. This requires a monthly subscription fee, a portion of which is allocated to video creators.

How much does it pay"Youtube" for views in 2022

Let's move on to the numbers. The problem is that it's difficult to provide exact figures as they vary depending on the country and the channel's niche. However, there are some average values we can share with you.

YouTube pays out 68% of the ad revenue. This means that out of every $1000, $680 goes to the creators. For each view of an embedded ad, the author earns $0.10-$0.30, but on average it's around $0.18. So, on average, creators earn $18 for every 1000 ad views on their videos, which translates to approximately $3-$5 per 1000 regular views.

Different lists of data about how much YouTube's partner program pays for 1000 views are published online. For example, take a look at the screenshot below.
From this screenshot, one might get the idea of moving to Norway and creating content there to earn a fortune for every 1000 views. However, the data in such tables is almost always either inaccurate or incomplete.

As we mentioned earlier, the earnings from the partner program fluctuate based on a multitude of factors beyond just the country. If the average payout for 1000 views in Russia is approximately $2, it doesn't mean that a Russian content creator cannot earn more. They certainly can. It simply requires creating high-quality content in a "serious" niche.

Let's summarize

It is impossible to accurately determine how much you can earn from 1000 views on YouTube. If you have enabled monetization on your account, you can expect to earn an average of $3-5 per thousand views. Whether this is a lot or a little is up to you to decide.

In general, it is possible to earn a decent income on YouTube. However, it is not advisable to limit yourself to the platform's partnership program, especially in the early stages when earnings will be minimal.

Once you have built an audience around your channel, you can monetize it through third-party partnership programs or independently promote other products.

How much does American YouTube pay for 1000 views?

In the West, bloggers earn significantly more. While in Russia, the average rate ranges from $2 to $4, in the US, it's around $8 to $10. This is primarily due to the price of advertising and the size of the advertising market.

Which YouTube partnership program is the best to join?

Well, actually any affiliate program can work. However, the results will be better if you connect one that aligns with the niche of your channel. For example, if your channel is about finance, business, and personal development, you can consider joining a bank's affiliate program. If your channel is about gaming news and hardware, then an affiliate program for gaming products could potentially work well for you.

How many views does a video need to qualify for a good affiliate program?

Views are not the main factor for affiliate programs. What matters is how engaged your audience is and how interesting your content is. If you create mediocre content with generic pranks, you might only get a few clicks on a link even with a million views.

How much does YouTube in Russia pay for 1000 views?

If we look at the statistics, on average, Russian YouTubers earn around $2-2.5 for 1000 views. In some cases, the rate can be higher. For example, here's a blogger who wrote a small article on the topic. On average, they earned $3.62. It varies in different situations.
