Some of his other top uploads include How to Get a Guy to Like You, What Makes a Girl Attractive, and How to Tell if a Guy Likes You.

By choosing to display ads on one’s videos, Youtubers are able to make some money on the side through the site. Typically, Google pays its users upwards of $5 per 1,000 monetized views- while this may seem like a trivial amount at first, the total earnings can easily add up if you have a considerable following, like Collins.
