Many YouTubers makes this common mistake especially Tech YouTubers like me that they upload whatever tech video they make which is not right

This is a crucial part for YouTubers to analyze before they grow their channel. These YouTube rankings, gives us an estimate of whether we’re committing a mistake or not.

The mistake we commit when we upload whatever video we think is of our Niche. For example tech YouTubers uploads videos on Mobile reviews, PC build guides, Software reviews, Unboxings, gaming etc.,

Which is not the right way to do. For instance, just check this YouTube Rankings according to Wikipedia.

These YouTubers are sorted according to their rankings and their Niche is listed at the end of the column. This Niche helps YouTube to allow which ads to show on their videos.

  1. Great article. Socialblade is still relevant. And it’s incredible – the amount of information you can get from it.
    When I show this to my clients, there eyes open wide, especially when we check their competition – that’s the fun part.

    You can also check out Viewlio from Joe Troyer. It’s a neat little software to check if you should compete with certain keywords.

    Nice explanation btw about the different youtube income models. Affiliates or niche videos don’t need advertising on them. It just scares the audience. If you like Minecraft however, dig away and add your videos. That’s your only income…
