There might be some 1 Lakh or 1.5 Lakh times the ad might have displayed. This will be due to different factors. If a person has viewed some 20 videos and after that he had seen your video, ad won’t be displayed. And some websites will embed your video in their websites. For those, ads won’t be displayed.

For those 1-1.5 Lakh ads, people might have clicked on the ads only like some 20K to 30K times. So, you will be paid money from Youtube only for those 20K to 30K ad Clicks. And there will be pricing for cost per click for ads that is how much Youtube will pay for a single ad click. Some ads will have high pricing and you will get more money of somebody Clicks on those ads. Another important thing is that, the pricing will change based on the location. If people from USA or UK clicked on your ads, you will get more money than when people from India, Srilanka had clicked on ads.

Considering all these, you will get approximately 30 dollars to 40 dollars for 1 Lakh views on YouTube and its 0.3 dollars for 1K Views. So, earning money from Youtube is not that easy as people think. But if you create viral content with quality, you will get more money in the long run.
