Third and final (in more ways than one) announcement:

After six years, Friday is my last day at YouTube. (I'm moving to another group at Google.)

There's a whole lot of exciting stuff coming your way in YouTube Analytics that I can't wait to see launched, even if from an outsider's vantage point.

The rest of the team is still watching here so please keep your feedback coming! Your feedback has made YouTube Analytics a better place for all creators - not just the ones active on this community.

Thank you all for everything. It's been a pleasure to at least attempt to give you insight into how YouTube works (and doesn't work!)

Ted

Hi all - a few announcements today. Here's the first:

We upgraded our demographics report a while back and I'm just now getting around to mentioning it.

You have a nice tree graph, you can see your distribution by both watch time and views, you can drill in on a gender or age to see which videos are most popular w/that gender or age group.. all sorts of fun!

Also, I now get a full infinite scrolling list of Realtime data for all videos and not just the top 5.

Excellent..

The meaning of the English word "Trump", why is it so ameliorative?
Clinton does not mean anything , it 's cheating. :'-(

Hello all! Please help us build a better product!

We're doing a bit of research on some new designs for YouTube Analytics that will hopefully make it more useful and easier to use. If you're willing to be part of a study (60 minutes, in person if you are in London. Otherwise over Hangouts) please sign up here: https://goo.gl/w2jLHv.

Even if you cannot take part in the next session we're preparing, do leave your details as we will get in touch about future sessions.

Holy crap! That's 4x bigger than three next biggest wasp I've seen. Invasive species? Certainly invasive in our house!

Hello all -

We've made a few improvements to our playlist analytics over the last couple of weeks.

First, we've made it out of the dark ages by reporting on playlist starts not just from web but from all devices.

Second, we added a nifty "exit rate" metric, which shows you which videos are keeping people engaged with the playlist and which videos are causing people to leave.

We've also made some improvements to our traffic source data - in particular the "external" traffic.

Lastly, we renamed some of our metrics to hopefully be a bit more clear.

Announcement number two:

(+Somjit Bhattacharyya beat me to this one!)

The realtime report got a few nice enhancements. First off, you can now see your top 25 videos instead of just your top 5.

If you drill into an individual video, you can also see the breakdown by country. See how active your various audiences are at certain times of day.

| Italy and the Italians are a little more "racists" than other Europeans I think. Romanians are at the same latitude so the skin color is not much different. But I suspect that data be incorrect for 2010-2015, A drop of immigrants after the Libyan and Syrian crises? Very strange...

All right, I need to vent. For months, I’ve watched Donald Trump decry as “rigged” everything from the Democratic primaries, the Republican primary rules (that’s right, the same rules that helped h…

This was the Boss of the house, he must keep accounts. He is responsible for all these diversions. But he is probably not the cause, many people still work in the background to fraudulently enrich themselves within the organization, I am sure. ;-)
