Anatomy of 1,000,000 YouTube views - Part 3

My final publication of YouTube Analytics for the Learn with Dr Eugene O'Loughlin Channel shows some interesting information about how people find my videos. The top two sources are thanks to YouTube itself. 28% from videos that YouTube suggests to viewers when they are viewing other videos, and 26% are found through YouTube searches. Google search at 15.5% comes next.

Further down the list you'll that my YouTube channel comes in at a disappointing 0.5% - clearly very few people are viewing the videos by visiting my channel page. I'd like to see how this compares with other channel owners. The data shown below only starts at 29th November 2009 - data before this are not available.

Finally, many people have asked me if I make any money out of YouTube. Part of the YouTube Partner agreement (I think) is that we are not allowed to publish such details. However, in my case this is easy - I have not turned on "monetization" for any video, so my earnings are ZERO. However, purely in the interests of research of course, I will be turning on "monetization" very soon - then I can sit back and watch the cents rolling in!
