YouTube’s ad revenue is set to hit $5.6 billion this year, according to an eMarketer report relayed by the Financial Times. The same report estimates that the service’s net revenue after paying its partners is close to $2 billion, which would be significantly more than theĀ $1.65 billion that Google paid for YouTube in 2006. YouTube now gets about 20 percent of all U.S. online video ad money.

  1. Please stop doing things like comparing revenue ($2 billion) to purchase price ($1.65 billion). It’s like comparing tacos to pecan pie. Both are numbers. Both may be big and tasty. But they just don’t have any business being in the same sentence.
