Your host Attorney Tim Conlon of The Custody Place in Maryland

transcript:

Hi this is Tim Conlon from The custody Place following up on the story that DaddyoFive “Follow The Money”, I’m here with David Bruce an SEO and guru of the Internet, Dave can you tell me what that means “follow the money” with these guys?

David Bruce:

“Follow the money, okay when you saw on the news all the stories about a YouTube channel, that garnered hundreds of thousands of subscribers and millions of views, featuring child abuse, all the
news media would talk about how horrible it was, but nobody was talking about is, that how it got that way”

“(What) Follow the money is that… awhat… what the general population does not know is that when
you make a YouTube, Google puts advertising on the YouTube, and they share that advertising money with the person who created the content… and the two facets of that are Google Adwords and Google Adsense

…but follow the money has to do with the reason that the DaddyoFive channel started off mildly (iord) lurid and got increasingly lurid, is because each months paycheck got larger
and larger and the DaddyoFive creator of the content put together the correlation between – the more lurid make the videos the bigger my paycheck”

Tim:
“And I think the late-breaking information we’ve come across is that Google essentially was sweetening the deal – the worse and worse he hit the kids, the harder and harder he hit the kids…
because what we had in effect, there was a worldwide playground where kids could watch other kids getting beat up and the adults got paid for the price”

David Bruce”
“Alright…that requires some explanation- now what the
general population doesn’t know is that the way Google works and why Google is
different than, say cable TV or the old broadcast TV, I’m 60 you can tell how old
I am… back when there was three channels

ABC NBC and CBS

Tim:
“you sound 21”

David Bruce:
“(chuckles) thank you, the way Google works is that… amazingly, teenagers that have
software skills can with, Photoshop and other video editing software literally compete. Even up with a cable TV channel, and attract an audience… and the audience need not be a million people between the ages of 25 and 30… as it turns out, if you created a content pitching thirteen to
eighteen year olds you could get millions of people watching your video… and the video does not need to reach a broad audience, as a matter of fact the more “boutique”, the more specific your
target demographic is the quicker you can build a following… and if an advertiser can pitch… can sell products through your channel… you could make TENS of THOUSANDS of dollars a month… even if you’re 14 years old and your audience is 14 years old”

Tim:
“And I think something you’ve identified from the research, doing what you do, is that really what we have is, child abuse times two because we have Mike abusing the children and the vast vast majority of his viewership was children watching that?”

David Bruce:
“Yes well okay… follow the money… if you want to know how this started – before DaddyoFive had prankster channel, he had a DaddyoFive gamer channel and here’s how I see it happened. What is a gamer channel? Okay, a bunch of people playing an Xbox sometimes they stream, they play against each other, one of them might break a record, so they’ll make a live video stream recording of “How I beat the game”, here’s how I got to score 1 million – one zillion in Call of Duty, or whatever space-age game, first-person shooter. Now once you’ve recorded it you could put it on YouTube and, quite by accident discover – oh my god, I got 10,000 views

…and if that video is monetized… out of the blue you could get a check from Google for a couple hundred bucks… and you’re just a novice! you wouldn’t sit down to create a news channel or a media empire…

you’re just playing gaming and also they
gave me a couple hundred bucks so you do a couple more videos then your next most check is a little bit bigger… THEN you start watching your subscribers and your likes and your comments and you realize…that your audience base actually likes a certain type of say slapstick humour and the worse it gets the higher the check

Tim:
“Wow, thanks Dave, This is Tim Conlon from the

Custody Place, come back soon
