Insider Monkey has compiled information from the data website Social Blade and the YouTube Money Calculator to give you an accurate ranking of 11 most profitable YouTube Channels. We ranked these channels based on an estimated channel/video views. The exact figures earned by these websites are a function of their video impressions. Our revenue estimates are extremely conservative as we assumed that these channels earned revenue only from banner ads. We didn’t take into account video ads which have much higher CPMs. We also didn’t consider ancillary revenues obtained when these viewers visited each channel’s other websites or purchased merchandise sold by these channels. Sites with more subscribers are likely to repeat their strong performance in the future. Let’s find out more about the 11 most profitable YouTube channels.
