How Much Money Does Youtuber Make Per Subscriber?

Posted by Rahul Gupta
YouTube stardom is a new phenomenon in many countries including India. It’s like a trend started to quit your jobs to become famous on YouTube. The emergence of many famous YouTube channels including All India Bakchod (AIB) and The Viral Fever (TVF) adds up to people’s excitement and hope of becoming famous.
Money YouTuber Make Per Subscriber
Many people take their time off to create and upload videos to earn money. People upload videos to increase their subscriber, in the hope of getting famous and making more money. But before taking that decision, you must want to know how much you can actually earn on YouTube for every subscriber you get.

Do you need a lot of subscribers to make a lot of money on YouTube?

The short answer to this question is no. The first and most important thing to know is that you don't get money based on how many subscribers you have rather by a number of views you get. 
Having many subscribers is definitely a good thing but not really useful if you are there to make some money. And thus this leaves subscribers as nothing more than simply people who follow your channel to receive notifications when you post a new video on your channel.

Why do you have to pay a subscription fee for some channels then?

Subscribers are not asked to pay any subscription fee for following most of the channels. However, paid subscriptions are something that YouTube has implemented as well. 
Here, users are asked to pay a subscription fee to subscribe a channel. The channel profits from money paid by the user for a subscription. This service is yet available in only some of the countries.

How can you make your channel a paid channel?

You can charge subscription fee only if your channel is a paid channel for which you have to meet certain requirements. There is an eligibility criterion given by YouTube to enable paid content. To be eligible to create paid content, you must fulfill following conditions:
  • You meet the criteria for YouTube partnership. It is possible only if paid subscription service is available in your country. Also, the content you upload should be of high quality and appropriate for all audiences. It also involves agreeing to YouTube’s terms and conditions and copyright materials. 
  • Your mobile number should verify your account. You must provide and verify your mobile number. Once this is done, you can add videos of more than 15 minutes. 
  • Your YouTube account should be linked to an approved AdSense account. To earn money on YouTube, you need to connect the two accounts. If you don’t have an AdSense account, then you must first sign up for it through your Google account. You can link your Adsense account to more than one YouTube account. 
  • Your channel must already have at least 1000 active subscribers.

Is there any way to get more subscribers?

There are a few tips to increase your subscribers that you may like:
  1. Produce highly engaging content: - Make your video entertaining and valuable. Always remember that quality is more important than quantity. 
  2. Increase your uploading frequency: - The main reason why anyone will subscribe your channel is that they love your work and would love to see more of it. So you need to be active to get their attention.  
  3. Optimize your Title of the video: - Optimising your content is crucial nowadays. Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is the process to optimize your content for web searches. 
  4. Let people find you: - Make use of the option provided by YouTube to link to your official web page.

10 Best Firewall Apps for Android [Review]

Posted by Rahul Gupta
Firewall, the word was originally meant to refer to a wall that confined a fire or potential fire in a building. Later uses refer to similar structures that served the same purpose.

In computing, a firewall is a network security that monitors and controls the incoming and outgoing traffic based on predetermined security rules. It establishes a barrier between a trusted internal network and an outside network that may or may not be trusted.

Mobile security has become an increasingly important component of mobile computing. There is immense concern over the security of personal and business information stored on smartphones. There are good practices that must be observed from design to use, through the development of operating systems, software layers and downloadable apps.

Best Firewall Apps
Let’s have a look at ten apps that you can install on your phone that will provide it security and keep your phone protected:

1. NoRoot Firewall

Some apps require you to root your phone. This one is not one of them. NoRoot creates a mock VPN for you and you alone, then connects your device to it.

Now you can monitor all the traffic coming in through the app and protect your data along the way. You will be alerted every time something wants to connect to your phone, and it's up to you whether you want to allow access. Filters enable you to block certain addresses and ports on the web. And if you want to see who’s trying to connect, NoRoot also has an access log that displays the connection attempts, the IPs and time and status of the apps. This way you're protected all the time.

2. NetGuard

It is a simple but useful app to block internet access to your device. You don’t even need access to block off malicious websites from your phone. One can individually configure addresses and applications for access on the Android device.

Some of NetGuard’s features are that it allows you to block when roaming quickly, you can prevent system applications from accessing the Internet so that they won't receive any updates. Another cool feature is that it allows you to record your network usage per application to see which one is eating up all your mobile data! 

3. AFWall+ (Android FireWall +)

It is your one stop app for rooted Android devices. It has a very pleasant interface and works well on almost any device. It is a front end application and comes with the powerful iptables Linux firewall. 

Since it requires root access, this app with providing you with more options than those that do not need root rights. Using AFW+, you can hide lock screen notifications. It is a lot faster and more reliable than most other firewall apps. A solid benefit for rooted devices.

4. NoRoot Data Firewall

NoRoot Data Firewall allows you to monitor traffic on non-rooted devices. One of its unique features is that it allows you to capture packets. You can protect your app from unauthorized access by enabling ‘password protect’ in the app. Your device can be stopped from accessing the internet at night by allowing ‘’Night Mode’!

Some of the other features of NoRoot Data Firewall are that it records and analyzes data usage for each app. You can set up temporary permission for certain time limits, add domain filters and IP filters and set the DNS server address.

5. DroidWall

DroidWall is one of the most popular firewall applications available. Its interface reminds you of the old school Gingerbread interfaces, but the app is still solid.

DroidWall allows you to manually define iptables rules but other than that it is a simple firewall app. It requires root access so naturally, it comes with a host of advanced features. Only use this if you know what you're doing.

6. Mobiwol: NoRoot Firewall

Mobiwol will not only reduce your data usage but also save your battery life in addition to securing your privacy. You can take direct control of the apps installed on your device and allow or block app connectivity.

You can get alerts when a new app tries to access the internet, and the connection logs component is useful for telling you every device you’ve been connected to.

7. LostNet NoRoot Firewall

Using LostNet NoRoot, you can stop all communication that you do not essentially require. You could block access to those countries that you do not trust. LostNet captures and analyses packets sent to and from your device. The app also removes traffic to individual ad networks. 

Another neat feature is that it allows you to create different profiles with blocking and acceptance rules for each one, like when children use your device.

8. Root Firewall

Root Firewall is an excellent choice when it comes to preventing data over billing and saving battery life. It blocks Internet access for your apps and protects your privacy.

You can custom select to block Internet access for each app through 3G or Wi-Fi. It works great when you don’t have an unlimited data plan!

9. LightningWall

This app is your firewall for installed apps. Only those apps that have permission to access the internet are shows. You can easily configure the incoming and outgoing connections independently. The same rules are applied to all networks.

Lightning Wall does not require iptables; there is no start up required and no data leaks. The rules are always active, and you do not need to set them again on connection change.

10. Firewall Gold

This one requires rooting access to your device. Like all firewalls, Firewall Gold watches all your connections, in and out of your network. It lets you create profiles not just for your phone but all of your devices. 

The rules are easy to configure. You can define or export them, and you can import some rules as well.

Firewall Gold allows you both roaming and tethering, a cool feature using which you can create custom scripts for a particular IP address.

PayClick Ad Network Review & Features [Earning Proof Inside]

Posted by Rahul Gupta

Is AdSense Dead?

No! But from considering the situation of most of the budding bloggers and website publishers, establishing a well-off earning source using Google AdSense can be a tough task. That’s why advertising networks are prevailing for everyone who wishes to generate revenue from his niche blog, website or publishing platform.

Outline

Have you worked hard to make your site more content worthy and engaging but couldn’t find a way to generate the required profit and revenue from it? 

And if you’re tired of placing ads those irrelevant ads that distract your readers and is decreasing your targeted audience, then it might be the time to move on from AdSense and stop using all those self-proclaimed “Best Advertising Networks” that eventually reduces your site’s traffic.
Payclick-Review
However, there’s another reason behind the struggle of all the newbies to generate profits, but they are yet not aware of the fact. Being in the affiliate and marketing networking for a time now, the one that I’ve realized is that the native ad format for all the websites is much more reliable, efficient and profitable methodology for both publishers and the advertisers.

PayClick is one of the proven global advertising networks that works in a similar way to increase the revenue for all the publisher’s web sites that by introducing the advertising placements of widget ads in the native format. 


It simply means that your visitors would be able to views these ads on the pages of your site without making any difference in the content and the ads. It’s as the ads are smartly camouflaged in between the website’s native environment.

Fortunately, this review of PayClick enlightens you on why choosing PayClick is beneficial and is it the most recommended network for you or not. So, let’s get started.

Why PayClick over all the other Advertising Platforms?

PayClick is here just because of its overwhelming influence and impressions exposure worldwide. That’s why I’ll recommend you to start your blogging journey with PayClick. However, to generate some profits, the first thing is to drive traffic and a readership to your website with the content and social media. 

With over 120,000 advertisers teamed up with this network, its network is expanded across 107 nations globally. With the recent discovery of the seven planets by NASA, I’m assuming PayClick would also expand its services to these planets as well. Just Kidding.
Widget Settings
It promises to deliver 100% appealing and content driven advertisements along with high payouts and impressions.
The pricing plans also act as a catalyst for luring both the publishers and the advertisers together. PayClick, in fact, offers CPM and the CPC based pricing models which I’ll discuss thoroughly in the review later.

Getting Started – Registering Yourself with the Network

PayClick Registration
You can easily join the PayClick Ads Network directly through the site’s homepage. Being a blogger myself, I registered as a Publisher looking to increase his/her revenue without placing irrelevant ads on the site’s blog page.

PayClick's offering to all the Publishers

  • Native ads depending upon the audience's interests and website content.
  • Highest CPM and CPC based Revenues.
  • Over 50+ ad unit settings and options like background color to a type of product/content recommendations.
  • Works seamlessly along with AdSense or any other Network.
  • Redeem your payments on a weekly basis and advance options.
  • Super responsive widgets for every device from a desktop, to mobile and tablet.
  • Exclusive offerings for premium partners and smaller websites.
  • Various payment methods including PayPal, Web money, Pioneer, and Wire.
  • Fast and easy widget installation, suitable for learners and newbies.
  • Reliable support is available for 24*7 by super friendly guys in your local language.
Adding a Site

A Publisher’s Perspective – The Review

PayClick boasts a global coverage, and with successful deployment since 2010, it’s getting better regarding tracking, revenues, and support. The partnership with more than 120,000 advertisers is still trustworthy for its members.

As we all know that the higher CTR is, the higher your income would be. However, most of the networks aren’t able to satisfy the whim of the publishers with the CTR rate. PayClick uses the advanced technology of native ads placements, that has ultimately made it possible to provide a 5% CTR against the average of 2.3%. 

PayClick Statistics
Publishers are also entitled to join the network even with blogs that have average traffic and a growing audience. The setup process is minimal, and within 10-15 minutes, you’ll be able to configure the ads on your site seamlessly with the content.

The website offers you an interactive dashboard which allows you to keep an eye all the running campaigns on your websites. You are entitled to access full reports on the ad clicks, impressions, income rates for CPC and the effectiveness of the native ad placement.

Guaranteed Payments

PayClick promises to follow a flexible ideation of providing revenues to the publishers. The website allows the members to avail the payments on a weekly basis, that too with numerous payment methods available. Just fulfill the payment threshold of $20, and you can redeem the generated profit whenever you want. 

Want to increase your impressions? Here’s a secret trick that I’ve been using for a few years now. Configure your website/blog with the Heatmap tool and track where your readers visit the page more often. Now, place the widgets on the similar areas, above the folds, etc. Placing the native ads in the sidebar isn’t as much as effective as you think. 


The real scenario of the CPC and the CPM rates on PayClick’s Network ranges from $0.3-$5. It’s something that you cannot determine yourself. The rate varies with the amount of traffic your website gains, impressions, and your current location. The highest CPC rates are often generated by the site hosted in the Europe, and Asia.

Choose Ad Type
Fully responsive ads by the devices like smartphones, tablets, and desktops would help you produce impressions from every possible user who visits your site. The design of the ads can be easily customized with more than 50 settings and changes. 

You can also contact the Support Manager for manual recommendations and other changes. Reliable support is the key to keep long lasting customers, and PayClick hasn’t disappointed me in any possible manner.

Final Words

So, this was my take on the native ad network, PayClick.com which is aimed to increase your revenue. You can get more information about advertisement placements, CPC or CPM plans, and an exclusive partnership with the VIP membership for the publishers. 

So, would I recommend this network to other bloggers? Hell Yes! It's a good place to start your revenue journey, and with flexible eligibilities, you can easily grow your website. 

Do share your thoughts on this network and let me know if you’ve started generating profit from your site or not.
