YouTube has come up with some new insights about how their feed algorithm works. It addressed some of the common quotations from the creators about the video distribution. Also, how to align them in order to enhance the maximum reach. YouTube answers many of them.
The video builds on the algorithm insights video that YouTube shared in July and in October. It provides answers to some of the key distribution questions. If you are trying to improve the performance of YouTube, then it is best to watch all of them. It is also beneficial to check out YouTube’s ‘How it Works’ explain platform, which comes with additional notes on the video distribution.
Here are the questions and the answers that YouTube shared on their latest installment:
If a video is not performing well, will updating the thumbnail improve performance?
YouTube answers that it is a good way to improve video performance. There is nothing within the algorithm that offers a change in the result or triggers a thumbnail change. As the answer says, changing the way of the title or the thumbnail looks effective to get more views. But they are recommending only to make changes when the video has both a lower click-through rate and receiving fewer and more impressions than the usuals.
Also, the system works on how the audience is responding to the videos and not the act of changing the title.
Does your videos’ click-through rate among your channel subscribers impact the likelihood of it being recommended?
To answer this question, YouTube said that their recommendation system has no real focus on the subs feed as a primary signal. They focus on the video performance to the context. So ranking on the “Home” is on the basis of video performance and when it is shown on the Home.
