The Best Ethiopian Tube and Entertainment Websites TodayUntil just recently, people looking for information or entertainment would have just entered a search term in Google Search and proceed.
Now, with the explosion of YouTube, which by the way is owned by Google, people are turning more and more to this video site and Ethiopians are no different.
The YouTube website itself is the number one website in Ethiopia and now Ethiopians are starting to build more and more YouTube-like sites for the purpose of targeting this growing interest.
As a business, it is proving itself to be an attractive source of income for those able to innovate and predict the interests of the wider public.
Aside from this ability, those interested in this business will have to at the least a basic understanding of video editing, website coding and building, as well as, various other skills associated with the internet and computing.
Many around the world see this income as a supplementary source to their "day job" and take their spare time to work on their tube or entertainment site.
But there is another group that takes this business seriously and puts all the effort, time and resources into its success.
This second group has definitely proved how lucrative this venture can be with examples such as Biniam Negessu founder of DireTube, who launched the site years ago in 2008.
"We have close to 150,000 visitors a day, and on our Facebook page we have over 2.4 million likes. 60pc of our viewers come to the website by clicking a link on Facebook which brings them to DireTube" claims Biniam.
These websites generate income through the advertisements that are placed on the page or within the video.
Google, along with other agencies, such as, Infolinks, Content.ads, Media.net, etc., act as the middlemen between the companies looking to advertise and the publishers with sites available for ads.
Most of these companies use sophisticated software to align viewers with ads pertinent to their demographic and location.
The income is then calculated by considering the amount of eCPM (cost per mille or thousand impressions), CPC (cost per click), or CPV (cost per view).
CPC's are the most lucrative, as it requires action on the part of the viewer. The user would have to actually click on the ad and view it, this can bring in anywhere from .03 cents upwards to 25 dollars, depending on the users location.
High tier countries, such as the US, Europe, etc. bring in the highest paying advertisers, while viewers from Ethiopia currently are considered lower tier countries.
The following are considered to be one of the top 10 YouTube-like entertainment websites in Ethiopia.
