Why does YouTube pay us?
Now, many may be wondering, "Why does YouTube pay us?"
However, the answer to this question is straightforward.
In fact, YouTube is a service of Google.
And we all know that Google has another service that we know as Google ads .
By creating an account of this Google ads, everyone pays Google to market and promote their product, business, service, website, video etc. on the internet.
And, with money from advertisers, Google shows their product / business ads in our videos via YouTube.
In contrast, Google keeps 45% of the money taken from advertisers and gives 55% to us.
So, if YouTube or Google hadn't paid us, we wouldn't have bothered to create YouTube channels and upload videos.
In order for YouTube video creators to have the motivation and interest to make money, YouTube / Google is paying us.
Because if YouTube creators stopped making videos, it would be a problem for Google to show advertisers ads.
And, if it weren't for the video, there would be no ads. So, how did Google make money?
