Of course, as mentioned, breaking out the true figure is close to impossible.

Citing two sources, Efrati said gross revenue for Google from YouTube was $3.5 billion in 2013. After payments to partners, net revenue was only $1.5 billion. Efrati said YouTube is profitable.

Google never breaks out revenue figures for YouTube, so we're left to rely on estimates and reports.

The $3.5 billion is significantly behind forecasts. eMarketer thought YouTube would do $5.6 billion in gross revenue in 2013. In 2012, Citi analyst Mark Mahaney predicted $3.6 billion in gross revenue, and $2.4 billion in net revenue.

So after payment to partners, net revenue was 1.5 billion dollars. Presumably there are other expenses as well? In which case that revenue isn't a net figure at all.

America certainly has some strange accountancy standards.
