the blue yeti microphone is one that is often used for youtube videos.

have you tried using it in cardioid mode (not sure if that is only on the pro model or not)

also... some people mount them on microphone stands which fixes the issue. the microphone will pick up background noise unless you have it located away from noise sources (you cant expect it to be on your desk next to the keyboard and mouse and not pick them up) or you use it in cardioid mode (if available) which provides a more directional cone of pick up.

Have you adjusted the mic gain within the Sound driver? You can search microphone test and it will set it automatically, usually between 40-60 and then I have my Yeti gain at around 11:00
