The revenue sharing program comes as an incentive to Youtubers who have a lot to share with world through videos.

        This is a great article, and is the first time to hear about Revenue Sharing Program.. I’m not too king with youtube, although I know it gets a lot of traffic and with a lot of hard work I know you can make money from it.

      Don’t get me wrong, just about everything you do these days takes a lot of HARD work and I’m all for that. I have stayed away from youtube, but after reading your article things might change..

      Thanks for the information…
