As YouTube moves towards becoming a site centered around Channels, it becomes more and more important for you to get more Subscribers. YouTube viewers watch over 4 billion videos each day, but YouTube.com visitors only stay an average of 15 minutes per visit. When you compare that to television, which YouTube would like to overtake, that is only half the length of the shortest show you will find on television!
So what can YouTube do to get users to stay on for longer? Make the site more channel-focused. You may be asking yourself – How does this make a visitor stay on the site longer? Well, if a visitor subscribes to a user’s channel, the visitor is more likely to also enjoy watching that user’s other videos, and that will likely get the visitor to stay longer, to watch the other videos on that user’s channel.
The larger the number of Subscribers you have, the more it looks like you have people who want to watch your every video. YouTube subscribers are similar to Twitter’s followers, in that they want to follow what you are doing. In addition, YouTube is moving towards becoming its own social media platform. You are encouraged to post updates, which is the perfect avenue for letting your subscribers know that you have new videos up, or if you have tour dates in the near, it is a great way to inform your fan base of what’s going on in your life. Just make sure you don’t bombard them with updates of your everyday life. Really, no one wants to hear that you ate a banana with Cheerios for breakfast. It’s also a useful tool for making friends in the same industry as you are in – mutual support can go a long way!
Another great thing to have is channel views and comments, which we will begin to offer in the near future. We think channel views and activity are going to be critical in ranking your video pretty soon as YouTube begins to put more focus on Channels, and away from individual videos.

You can choose one individual country or a set of countries that you are interested in.
