While reviewing my YouTube Channel analytics for 2016, I decided to take a look at earnings just for Ireland. I have often wondered if it was worth my while letting the ads run when I am checking out my own videos, and I also wondered if I make any money out of my own students. As you'll see below, I earned the princely sum of €49.45 from ads served on my channel in 2016 - just under one euro per week (or about 0.14 cent/day). I think I'll keep the day job!
The best day was June 6th when I earned €1.54. Ireland accounts for just 0.9% of total earnings from the channel. This tells me it is very difficult to make money in Ireland from YouTube. Ireland accounts for just 1.5% of my overall views, so it is outside this country where most earnings come from. This goes a long way towards reducing my ethical dilemma about making money out of my own students - basically I don't!
Around 32% of views, and 59% of earnings comes from the USA - God Bless America!
