YouTube Minutes by Traffic Source

Which Traffic Sources drive the most YouTube minutes?

This easy-to-understand YouTube Minutes by Traffic Source dashboard from NEXT Analytics gives you important data about where your most-avid viewers are coming from and how many minutes of your video they watch from that traffic source.

  • YouTube search,
  • suggested videos,
  • annotation,
  • YouTube playlist page,
  • YouTube channel,
  • advertising,
  • playlist,
  • notification, or
  • other source

If you are measuring Minutes Watched, then those are the people who are most interested in your content. You can probably convert these people more easily than the ones who watch fewer minutes. That’s why the YouTube Minutes by Traffic Source report is most useful!

If you know where your more interested viewers are coming from, it tells you where to apply your marketing efforts!

  1. sources within YouTube
