In Philippines YouTube pays $1,000 to $2,000 per 1 million views, that’s if we assume that all the traffic comes from the country. If you get majority of traffic from USA, then income will rise past $2,500 per 1 million views.
YouTube income is measured in terms of RPM.The average RPM in Philippines is $1, meaning that for every 1,000 views, a YouTuber earns $1.But there are channels which earn even less than $1,000 per 1 million views.Such channels have short and poor quality videos.
There are many factors which determine the income of a channel.
- Watch time
Watch time is extremely important. The more a visitor watches a video, the more the revenue. Always ensure that watch time is above 5 minutes per visitor. If watch time is above 30 minutes, the RPM is over $1.5.
But you know that watch time is also determined by the quality of a video. If your videos are not useful for the viewers, they won’t spend much time watching them.
- Length of the videos
Short videos attract low RPM.Such videos have a length of less than 3 minutes. You find that the RPM for such channels is below $0.50.
A good video should be at least 10 minutes long.But ensure that yours are more than 30 minutes long in order to earn more.
- Geographical location of visitors
Your videos should not target visitors from Philippines only, they should get views from USA and EUROPE. The RPM for USA Traffic is as high as $5.If the views are balanced between Philippines and USA traffic, you’ll earn more than $2,000 per 1 million views.
