How much $ do video aggregator websites make in ad revenue?

I was just curious after perusing some websites:

How much money do websites like LiveLeak make?

I mean it in regards to website which host videos either embedded from Youtube, or who host original content on their own pages?

I haven't been able to find the info online anywhere, and was hoping someone on E46F had an answer

TIA

You can make absolute bank on YouTube and other video sites from ad revenue alone. You can live very comfortably if you come up with a good enough show idea. Lots of people quit their jobs to just make videos on YouTube. Your only investments need to be video editing software, a good video camera, and a good microphone.

Minnesotaburns quit his past job and literally trolls people on Xbox Live all day and posts videos as his new job. He recently bought a BMW with his ad revenue.

Problem is 99% of the people that want to get into this don't know how to run a high traffic website nor have the money for the bandwidth

Let's say you're extremely lucky and get 1 million YouTube views, you'll most likely make less than $3,000.

Don't quit your day job.

Maybe you and I can work together and make money, v8. Let's make a video where I tie you to a chair butt naked and whip your balls with a knotted rope. Sort of like the scene from the 007 movie.

You should start a Kickstarter for this. I'm in for $20

Hopefully enough to pay for totaling a range rover and 4 parked cars.

Thanks man. Is that speculation or something you're knowledgable of?

Thing is I have a friend who is already building a video aggregate database and just wanted me to throw money down on the domain - it's a premium domain so I figured I'd pick it up regardless of whether the site even launches. At it's set price with its current traffic, it's not much of a lose at this point in time.

Inquiring solely because I want to know what the ROI can be.

Yeah I know man; I hope so, too. Funny thing is I work 4x harder than you and now drive this said Range Rover; try staying out and alert after 23 hours at 4:30am, it's a wonderful sensation.

Must suck to drive an Maxima and hate on others, though

For the record, if you ever want to bring that Maxima out, I'll challenge you to a race on any race track, in any state, for any amount of money (so it's worth my while let's make it a $10k competition) and I'll come out to humiliate you. This is an official bet. Granted I'll be there with my E36, but you still have an epic Nissan.

That would be an EPIC first Youtube sensation clip

Thanks for those who are fairly mature on here - it's fascinating to see that as the E46 chassis ages, there's a reverse effect on the maturity of the crowd.

What makes you think you have the potential to be a site like Live Leak or World Star?
