Earnings on YouTube can do this way, Learn how these people become millionaires.
Do you like YouTube? I love it. I love how it remembers what you like and gives you more of that, as well as how easy it is to find entertaining stuff to watch.

But did you know that, apart from being a source of entertainment, Google’s GOOG-0.92%  YouTube is also a lucrative business for many people? Let’s talk about that.
YouTube pays commissions to publishers. It’s based on Google AdSense criteria, and how much you’re paid depends on a range of cost-per-thousand advertising rates, minus the 45% fee that Google keeps. For some publishers, that means getting $2.5 for every 1,000 views — others can get $10.

As you can see, the amount of money you can make fluctuates, and it largely depends on the performance of the ads on your video. (More clicks = more pay.)

So can you make a living by making YouTube videos? Maybe. Let’s meet YouTube’s millionaires.
