My video got 170,000 views in 3 days

Okay, that's not me talking. But that's what happened to a 17-year-old girl with the username "Bowiechick" on her video "Breakup" posted on YouTube (see ZDnet article for full story). This would have brought her between $1,000 and $1,500 on Revver, by the way. Not bad for 75 seconds of talking about a breakup and playing with a new Webcam tool. That math assumes an average click-thru of 3 or 4 percent and an adverage ad yield of .30 cents or less.

This makes me so insanely optimistic about Revver's potential for those of us posting videos, those advertisers and the soon-to-be rich Revver investors. After all, some of the simplest videos on Revver are far more interesting than this... No we just need to see exponentially more traffic to Revver. And Revver will have to become a portal or partner with portals to get and keep the traffic.
