YouTube Rankings C+

I read with interest an article in yesterday's Irish Independent by Fiona McBennett - "The Irish YouTubers who have made the big time". Several Irish YouTubers are now making a living from YouTube, including Sin√©ad Cady who has a massive 650,000 subscribers to her channel. I'm often asked how much I earn and how many views/subscribers I have, and how this compares to others. It is fascinating seeing how others do, and also interesting to discover that my channel comes nowhere near the top.

Today I came across a new website - www.socialblade.com, where you can look up your own stats (I'm a C+) and those of others. Much of what I can see about my own channel is already available to me in YouTube Analytics, but one interesting feature is that Social Blade makes future projections, eg:
  • 9,000,000 views will happen on 28th November 2015
  • 20,000 subscribers be reached on 29th February, 2016
  • 10,000,000 views will happen on 9th June 2016
  • 5 years from today the channel will have 36,000 subscribers and 17,496,000 views
I'll be keeping an eye out to see how accurate these projections are. I've noticed a definite slow down in growth of views, though the number of subscribers continues to grow. I will be adding several new videos in the next few weeks plus continuing to re-brand with new thumbnails. I'm told by my YouTube Account Manager regular posting is essential to keep up views and subscribers.
