What can I do to attract more views to my videos?
Welcome to a new series of post title “Behind the Video,” where ChannelMeter dissects the top 1,000 videos released in the past 90 days about a particular genre. This week we will be focusing on the Comedy category and will present the best type of video, the most successful tags, and the best duration of these highly popular videos.
“Sh*t ____ Say” videos continue to attract YouTubers, averaging over 700,000 views per video.
The top tag to use for these comedy videos is “funniest” with an average of over 1 million views per video. ’girl’ comes in at number 2; interestingly, ‘guy’ doesn’t even make the chart coming in at number 10.
The duration for comedy videos has actually shifted from short to rather long. The best duration is between 5 and 7 minutes averaging 900 thousand views per video.
So what’s the takeaway? ChannelMeter suggest that taking advantage of current memes or topics are great ideas for content as well as “how to” and “prank” videos. Using the tag ‘funniest’, and giving yourself time to do it well — ideally, 5-7 minutes, are a couple of more suggestion to attract viewers.
