The Official Google blog announces the release of a new tool called “YouTube Insight” that let’s users enables to view “detailed statistics” about the videos that they upload on YouTube. For example, uploaders an see how often their videos are viewed in different geographic regions, as well as how popular they are relative to all videos in that market over a given period of time. You can also delve deeper into the lifecycle of your videos, like how long it takes for a video to become popular, and what happens to video views as popularity peaks.
For now, you can find currently available metrics by clicking under the “About this Video” button under My account ==> Videos, Favorites, Playlists ==> Manage my Videos.
Insight gives the creators an inside look into the viewing trends of their videos on YouTube, and helps them to increase views and become more popular. Partners can evaluate metrics to better serve and understand their audiences, as well as increase ad revenue. And advertisers can study their metrics and successes to tailor their marketing — both on and off the site — and reach the right viewers. As a result, Insight turns YouTube into one of the world’s largest focus groups.
