YouTube has begun sharing profits with users who post popular videos on the site. The Google-owned site is extending its YouTube Partnership Program, offering more individuals with one off popular videos a chance to earn thousands of dollars a month. YouTube will monitor the popularity of user-submitted videos and some users will get invited to start earning revenue through the Partnership Program. Once the revenue sharing scheme is enabled on a user’s video, YouTube will sell ads against the video and paying the user a share monthly into their AdSense account. This option is available only to users in the US for now, but YouTube says is hoping to roll this feature internationally. Up until now, only users producing videos that reached a wide audience were able to join the YouTube Partnership Program, launched in 2007.
