WRONG!!! I know this is an old post. hard to believe Tinsel didn't catch it. Remind me not to trust your math tinman. If you earned $10.59 for 8857 views you need to divide $10.59 by 8857 which gives you about 0.001 dollars. exact amount is 0.001195 dollars per view or a just a little over 1/10 of a penny per view. more inline with what pauldude was saying and what most people will see. for a reverse confirmation you can run in your head just multiply 1/1000 of a dollar which is 1/10 of a penny times 9000 views and you have only $9.00. your personal experience shows that TinselKoala was wrong and way off . so now I'm wondering if TK chose to ignore this glaring math mistake. he may have skimmed over it and missed it but given his penchant for detail I doubt it.

As far as that video in the OP - yes it's a fake.

Huh? ORLY?

This is what I said:

One of the videos linked above has nearly 800,000 views, and altogether his faked videos have well over a million views. Let's see.... if he gets a tenth of a cent per view..... whir click..... that makes a thousand dollars right there. In just a couple of months.

And this is what TinMan said:

A small heads up on makeing money on youtube via add's.

Here is what i have made since i monetised my youtube account.

$10.59 for 8857 views.

8857/1059 = 8.36 cents per add.

Now if i had a million view's,that would be 1000'000 x .0836 = 83600 cents,which is $836.oo

So TK wasnt far off with makeing some good small change from youtube.

OK, yes, I did miss the mistake in his post. TinMan should have said

1059/8857 = about 0.12 cents, or 0.0012 dollars, per view, as you have it.

So a million views would be 0.0012 dollars x 1,000,000 = 1200.00 dollars.

Right?

Now, where exactly did I go wrong?

(Remind me not to trust your math.... )
