YouTube recently made some improvements to make “video suggestions” (that appear to the right of the viewing console and within the viewing console after the video is completed) more personal, based on the viewer’s viewing habits, announced Bing Chen of YouTube.
“This will help target your content to the audiences that you’re trying to reach without having to reach through miscellaneous content,” said Chen.
“To find out what sorts of suggested/related videos are driving to your video so that you may improve your tags and content, visit YouTube Insights, then click on Discovery. You will see a section called “YouTube Related Video.” Clicking this link will show you the traffic driven to your video from Related Videos,” explains Chen.
