If I click on the last 90 days and I can see how many views I got in the last 90 days, if I click on the last 365 days, I can see how many views my channel got in the last 365 days.

YouTube now shows you the top 10 videos of your YouTube channel, which videos are currently growing your YouTube channel, and what other channels are your audience watching. You can also see when your viewers are on YouTube and which country most of your viewers come from.

Returning viewers and new viewers.
New viewers are viewers that discovered your channel for the first time in the selected period, whether it’s 28 days or 90 days. Returning viewers are viewers who already watched your channel previously and return to watch in the selected time period, whether it’s 98 days or 90 days.

Click on your audience tab, in YouTube analytics, then select your date range of 28 days or 90 days, and then look at the returning viewers versus new viewers.

In the last 28 days, I got 5,905 new viewers and I got 694 returning viewers. Ideally, you want to create a balance of content that attract new viewers as well as content for returning viewers. Later, I’ll discuss what kind of content you should make next, to grow your YouTube channel.

How did your latest video contribute to the growth of your YouTube channel?

If I click on the dashboard on YouTube analytics, I can see my latest video performance. This video ranked number two out of my top 10 videos in the first two days and four hours compared to my typical video performance.

When you’re making a new video, try to outperform your last videos so your channel will grow. You should strive to be in the top three videos and ranking for views as well as increase your views, impressions click-through rate, and average view duration for that next video.

Here’s how to compare how each video performed in the last 24 hours.

If you click on Analytics, then click on advanced mode, click compare to, then click 24 hours video performance, you’ll be able to identify the top performing videos on your channel in the first 24 hours. The views, the impressions, impressions click-through rate, average view duration, and average percentage viewed. This will give you an idea what kind of content to make next so it performs well on your YouTube channel.

Why is your YouTube channel stagnant or not growing?

  1. Viewers’ interest changes over time.
    For example, when I started my YouTube channel, I was just making web design tutorials because I was a professional web designer. Over time my content evolved by making tutorials on how to grow your audience on YouTube. This meant the people who initially subscribed from a web design content no longer interested in my future content. Ideally, you want to build a core audience of viewers and subscribers that keep returning to watch more of your videos.
  2. Creating content your subscribers are no longer interested in.
    If you only create content that you’re interested in, but not your viewers and subscribers, your channel won’t grow. The more you know about your target audience, the easier it is to create the right content for them.

  3. Your content doesn’t engage your viewers.
    If you don’t keep your viewers engaged right in your video, it’s less likely that YouTube will recommend your content to other people’s watch pages. This starts by creating a compelling title and thumbnail. If nobody clicks on your thumbnail, then nobody’s going to watch your video content.

What kind of content should you make next to grow your YouTube channel?

YouTube says ”when the topic, title, and thumbnail of a video attracts more of the regular viewers of your channel, it’s more likely to be recommended to viewers watching similar videos on Home and Up Next.” Therefore, study the topic, title, thumbnail, and audience retention of your top videos to see what kind content you need to make next to grow your channel.

Ideally, you want your regular viewers and subscribers to keep returning to watch more of your video content. If it increases your core audience, then YouTube will recommend your videos to more people’s watch pages, resulting in further growth of your YouTube channel.
