How Much Can I Expect to Earn From the use of my Music on YouTube?

Earning royalties from Youtube

YouTube will only pay out royalties if a video has been claimed by an advertisement and therefore being monetized. The royalty rate for YouTube varies based on advertising. You are only owed a tiny fraction of a penny per each YouTube play if your videos are properly monetized. The rate will also depend on factors like how long a video is watched, how many comments the video has, and more. In most instances, earnings are split between the content owner, the sound recording owner, and the writer/publisher share for the underlying composition.
