What is YouTube?

YouTube definition: YouTube is a video on demand platform that allows creators to upload and share video content. It was first launched in 2005 and acquired by Google in 2006.

YouTube is widely considered one of the world’s most important and profitable websites:

  • It is the second most visited website in the world

  • Many users generate $30,000 to $1,000,000+ on the platform
