You are a fine lawyer. You answer the question without offering an answer.

As far as I know, I answered you. Whenever I read something that perks me, I go back, review what I have learned, and see if I will be coming to a different conclusion or keep the same one.

Hi Rayandmigdalia,
-Do you know the type of arrangement advertisers have on your videos? Depending on the type of ad contract they pick, the advertiser only pays if people click on the ad, or if they watch a certain number of seconds before they skip the ad.
-Do all your videos have ads all the time?
These could explain why you're not getting more money. I've read it's not simply about the views.

But still it is true: most videos on YouTube don't reach the 1000 views.
And views still count, because no matter what kind of add you have on your video: 0 views = 0 income.

Taylor Swift made 4 million on YouTube with 4 billion views.
This makes it really about views.
Rayandmigdalia might tweak a little here and there, but that wouldn't have made the total income 10 or 100 times higher. The only way to accomplish that is more views. It is a numbers game. Most YouTubers don't make their money from YouTube adds only: they also use affiliate marketing to sell what they talk about.

certain keywords like "Corpse" would definitely be auto-demonetized

I have to go back and rethink things through.
I believe that the internet is a portal to monetize opportunities. I've known people who became successful by maximizing their internet resources.
