Google to Pay YouTubers Ad Money Share

It was announced on BBC News that Google is going to start "rewarding creativity". They will plaster ads all over Youtube and pay YouTubers a share of the money. This has been confirmed by Chad Hurley the founder of YouTube which now has over 70million users a month.

The system will not be implemented for a few months and we are assured that the ads will not ruin YouTube, a possibility is that there will be 'three second long clips'. Who knows exactly what this means but knowing Google’s uncanny ability to squeeze every last drop of money from a site and still keep people coming back I am predicting this will make Google and talented YouTubers alike ALOT of money.
