In a fascinating turn of events, I have discovered Youtube Analytics for my video channel. It lets me see all sorts of crap like how many views each video gets, from where, what days, ect.
But one thing I never noticed was a thing called Average Viewing Time. Basically, Youtube tracks how long each person watches a video before leaving. Its really handy as it can kind of tell you how interesting your videos might be.
Apparently mine are shit.
No, really. Check out these stats. These are pulled for my channels LIFETIME. So these are lifetime averages.
And just for reference, here is the last 7 days, specifically 7/11 to 7/18.
What do these tell me? That I am boring beyond belief. lol No one sticks around to watch my 30+ minute videos. Most people leave around the 2 minute mark in most cases. And the trick with averages means that the lower the average the less likely anyone has actually watched more then that.
Comically, this doesn’t really change my attitude towards video making. Some folks have told me the issue is that my videos are too long, but that doesnt really jive. An interesting video would mean that people would stick around right? Or is it simply because of length?
The real issue here is that NO ONE SAYS ANYTHING. No one says a word to me about the content of the videos. Nothing.
So I am just going to keep on doing what I have been doing. At least until someone has the balls to actually watch one of these and give me honest feedback about the content. Which no one will lol
Whats REALLY interesting to me is that most people watch my videos about Warmachine Tactics. Good thing I am going to be focusing on those for a while.
