YouTube Opinion One video 1000 views and the other 10

Hello.

One of my channels has the same type of content in every videos. It's a Relax and Meditation channel, so every video has the same style of content and it doesn't change much from one to another. My questions is why one of the videos has 1000 views and the next ones have for instance, 10 or 20 views? Any thoughts on this?

Thank you.

The keywords could be a problem as groovy said. How differing are your keywords on the lesser viewed videos? The algorithm could also just not be pushing them yet if you don't have the authority for those keywords.

I have no idea, honestly. If we knew the answer to that, everyone would probably have a 100k subs.
What Damon said is logical. If we all knew everyone would be successful. The truth is there could have been a ton of factors that lead to this one video getting a 1000 views vs 10 or 20 from the others. The video might have gone a slight bit viral at a time the algorithm was pushing this kind of content. The video might have been uploaded at a time or day there was less competition from similar content being uploaded. YouTube might have simply been testing out a new algorithm process that picked up that one video at the time. Or it could have been a glitch that pushed it to more viewers.

Who really knows.

How can I get authority? I've lived in the Kathmandu Valley for 11 years and blogged this same subject before I started the first channel. Now I have over 110 videos on my first channel that went nowhere. But I know I wasn't tagging them right. What does it actually take? I rank for some long tail keywords that's to TB, but it still hasn't changed anything. I'm getting 30-50 views a week. My videos are much more accurate than any I've seen.
Please elaborate on 'authority.'

Amanda,

I am chiming in because I have seen many of your posts and you are trying so hard. But I am not sure you are objective of how your channel might look to others.

In my view, you have "authority" on Nepal simply because your channel name and every video I see on that channel is about Nepal. It isn't going to be a stretch for YouTube or anyone else to figure out you are about Nepal. However, this channel only has 12 videos. That is not a lot. I know you have the other channel which has MORE videos but I will speak to that further down.

The thing I see is that you are making very niched videos that relatively few people will search (or might be interested in). There is nothing wrong with owning niches because there are search niches I target as well. But I have no illusions that those niched videos will ever get HUGE numbers of views. In my case, most people have heard of Atlanta, the metro area where I spend a lot of time. But most people have never heard of Johns Creek, the area I work. If I make videos about Atlanta, the chances of my getting higher numbers of views are greater than videos on Johns Creek because few outside locals or those doing very specific research would know about it. Similarly, if I make a video about Georgia or Florida, the audience is even broader than if I covered a landmark in either place.

Your titles (as the other titles from your other channel when I last visited) are very niched. You are hyper-focused on very specific things. I venture to say most Americans don't know about. If you don't care about American viewership, fine. But my thinking is you want to find an audience beyond just Nepal. Maybe Europeans, I don't know your preference. But you need to figure out what audience you want to target. You cannot say "everyone" because that won't happen. You try to target "everyone", you will get very little or near nothing.

You say you want more views about Nepal but most people need to be educated about Nepal and know where it is and what it is about before you can ever get into the minutia of fairs, landmarks, events, monuments, etc.

I think you have plenty of authority. You might need to reconsider how OTHERS look at Nepal and compare that to your expectations of how many views and subscribers you want. You need more videos that have titles that are broader in nature.

"5 Reasons to Vacation in Nepal " is one example you could try. "How much does it cost to travel to Nepal". "Where the heck is Nepal?" "The 5 Best Food in Nepal". "3 Reasons Why Should You Care About Nepal"? And you have to do several videos that are high level, not just a couple, otherwise your content will only appeal to a very audience.

All the search phrases and search words in the world are not going to help you unless you also think about the CONTEXT and audience you desire to watch your videos. It is our jobs to connect our content we want to create to the viewers we want to attract.

What about Mt. Everest and all those big mountains? That might get more views.
And so, that shows you how ignorant I am and how little I know that Mt. Everest and all those mountains are connected to Nepal. Wow, the different possibilities/variations of referring to Mt. Everest and mountains as a talking point / lead-in to the rest of Nepal is just crazy.

Wow! I'm learning a lot on the posts here. Thank you everyone for the inputs even though it was not really my question. :)
I think the algorithm is a big factor on the posts, so if it was not pushed like mentioned above, it makes the difference on the views between the channels.
