    Not bad for a free video streaming site. I take it Ad Block is having a tough time fighting Google/YT algos.

    AdBlock works fine on You Tube. They have now taken to putting these little sliding ads in the video area that it wont block, but they aren't that obtrusive.

    Haha xD.

    Crazy how billions of dollars only accounts for 10% of googles profits... Shows how much money they make -_- and it's kind of scary.

    It's funny how 1.5 billion is "cheap change", yeah. I don't think any company in my country is that profitable. As long as it's bringing in money, it's all good though. No reason to shut it down anytime soon.

    Don't confuse a company's revenue with their profits. Those are two different things. People sometimes seem to use them interchangeably but they shouldn't.

    @tomkaten, I think the expression you want is "chump change."

    Mailpup, true... I think I was aiming for "small change" though :))

    Its a common misconception but its not Google that put adverse in middle of YouTube videos its the uploaders themselves you can have an advert evert 8 mins and you as the uploder have to type the timestamps you want ads placed in.
