Today’s post about using analytics for more YouTube views is inspired by my latest video YouTube analytics for dummies. I could have called it YouTube analytics for beginners, but the first one scored heaps better with TubeBuddy.
As I mentioned in the video I’m usually not one that likes to check stats or analytics because I find it way too boring. Even so, I’ve come to understand how it’s an important factor when it comes to growing your YouTube channel. And so, I decided to work out what the minimum amount of analytics knowledge I needed to know to increase my YouTube views. I also included a couple of analytic jokes in the video to break up the analytical monotony. ?
Quick Analytics For More YouTube Views
I used my funny locker room joke as an example in my video.
The image above shows the appalling 1.9% clickthrough rate. The clickthrough rate is the percentage of people who clicked on the thumbnail. As you can see, from the 53 views, only one person (1.9%) clicked on my thumbnail to watch my video. They reckon that your clickthrough rate should be between 3-10% and so I had to do something to get more people to click on my thumbnail, and I wouldn’t have known that if I didn’t check my YouTube analytics.
