Somali Pirates!

It’s amazing how life goes on and on, and never stop; but, do we really know if it stops or not? Think about it! Welcome dear from everywhere in our stunning world, especially our friends from the US, South Korea, New Zealand, Germany 😉

We’ve been searching the internet, my team and I for trending and the most exciting news that lately appeared for billions of people everywhere. And believe me, it has been tremendous amounts of news; some personal, others innovative, and few realistic!

What we found out was not a surprise in itself, but what made us raise up our eyebrows was how one single one-minute video/clip got such a huge attention from diversity of people all over the world. 

The other wonder was that it was not dancing clip or magic or a Disneyland’s movie trailer, it was a Somali Pirates VS Ship’s Private Security Guards!

We were not sure what Private Security guards though, and whether it was true or fiction, who knows?

Now, Gary asked how much money they made out of that. Kay likely gets about $7.60 per 1,000 ad views, down from $9.35 in 2012, according to TubeMogul, which buys and sells video ads. Ads are only run on a minority of videos shown. Roughly, a video creator will earn $2,000 for every million views. “And then YouTube takes 45 percent,” the Times notes.Feb 10, 2014

Different estimates with many kinds of calculations, but at the end of the day, when you look deeply at it. It seems like it is not worth it. Why? Because you’ll be sitting to your computer day and night, and you’d never know if any of your videos or clips are gonna have one million views so that you can get some of that good money, people dream of, right?

Another opinion said that the right pay is when advertisers pay Youtube, that is when tubers get paid, not before that:

“Advertisers only pay when someone clicks an ad or watches for 30 seconds. This is why you can’t tie your channel views to dollars. If your video gets ten million views but nobody watches or click the ads, you don’t make any money. This is how I’m able to make $1 per 25 views.”

Truly it is not about all of that, it was about that clip which allure that many views in such a short period of time. When we checked on the trending tap at first, it was  approx more than 6,646,000; then we forgot about it, getting busy with something else. Then when we got back again to that tap, we found the number jumped up to more than 7,745,149, which was staggering!

We thought we should get a screen shot twice with two or three hours interval, to measure how many views per minute it could raise. Here’s the two timing:

The first one was taken at 5:01 pm (Pacific Time), and the second was at 8:01 pm (Pacific Time). Can you see the difference in the numbers and in the ranking?

Our analysis for this will be tomorrow for sure, so we’ll see you tomorrow 🙄

Hugs & kisses ❤
