Over 5 million people have now watched my Cutting & Bottling Honey video. Is it the most popular beekeeping video on YouTube that isn’t trying to sell you something? Sure, why not? Let’s go with that. I was tracking it closely today hoping I’d catch it when 4,999,999 turned over to 5,000,000, but I went out to the kitchen to make a cup of tea, and when I came back, it was over.

Funny, I don’t feel any different.

  1. That’s surreal Philip. Are you making any money from adverts on it? You deserve to! Didn’t even know there was that kind of audience out there for beekeeping!

    • Emily — yup, it’s weird. I didn’t even think to monetise my videos until a few years ago when I noticed this video suddenly had about 2 million views. I think it got picked up by Buzzfeed or some highly trafficked site. I’ve since turned on the ads, but even with a couple million views since I monetised my videos, the cash isn’t much. It’s enough to pay for my hosting fees and a few minor expenses. I only get paid every time someone clicks an ad, but if I got paid per view, it comes out to 00.00005 cents per view. I can’t quit my day job just yet.
