There are some people who get their online video at sites like Live Leak or Vimeo.
But if you’re like most people, when you think online video you think one place: YouTube.
Today the Google-owned web property dominates online video and audio media. Whether you are looking for fresh content, video blogs, breaking news, online TV, or that obscure advertisement that stuck in your mind from back when you were a kid, YouTube is likely to be able to fulfill your every demand. It’s fast, efficient, benefits from Google’s incredible search engine to offer up the videos you want – and fast – and it’s available in an increasing number of countries and languages.
But if you are a content creator it can be a bit of a double-edged sword. Sure, you’ll get the views and there is barely any other platform that can compete in terms of monetizing that content. But when it comes to statistics about your audience – who they are, where they are coming from, and what they are watching – the pickings are rather slim.
Luckily, there’s a solution and, no surprise, it’s another Google product. Google Analytics allows the YouTube channel owner to find out more about who is visiting their channel, subscribing to their videos, clicking through on their calls-to-action (CTAs) and finding their way to the content creator’s stand alone website.
