In my experiences on the D list, it sounds good, but that's honestly not what he's making. It is usually closer to the lowest or even lower still. It's painful to think how many hours they spend editing and building rigs to pump out that algorithm. Meanwhile the site is building other algorithms that will get your video's caught up in claims for months on end. It might be different for him because he has enough clicks to warrant actual deals, or has some sort of network that helps him out. Who knows, I've always been kind of curious, only because now I have enough money to actually make production value, just never sure how to make that next big step aside from teaching myself tricks.
