Everywhere you look, you read more reports of just how much money Google is hemorrhaging from YouTube. The servers, the storage, the bandwidth, oh my! The speculations on Google’s sinkhole have left estimates all over the map, and Google won’t say what the real number is. But Google can afford anything, right? Nevertheless, if you’ve been posting videos on YouTube, should you be worried that the free ride will come to an end? If you are, check out my new post on Search Engine Guide, “Google’s YouTube Money Pit.”

  1. Figures that they will start charging to put videos online. Google controls pretty much everything so whatever they say is what goes. They are so large they can just control everything.

  2. Even if Google starts charging for uploading videos on You Tube, I don’t think it will effect the advertisers. Whatever Google does is bound to be right.

  3. I dont think they will start charging for uploading videos, the key here is that everyone can do it. If they charge even if it is $1 lots of people will stop posting and that will produce less visitos and that less money in adds.

  4. I don’t they will charge individuals for uploading videos but they will find some way to include ads in the videos so they can charge advertisers more.
