The YouTube blog announced some interesting news last week. The most popular YouTube contributors will be paid for their original content.
Initial user participants have been selected from the content creators that you have helped popularize by watching their videos and subscribing to their channels. Because they have built and sustained large, persistent audiences through the creation of engaging videos, their content has become attractive for advertisers, which has helped them earn the opportunity to participate on YouTube as a partner.
Danny has more.
For the time being, this revenue sharing program is being extended to a select few participants, but over time, as other contributors gain popularity, they can apply for the program by filling out a partnership lead form.
