Frequently Asked Questions

What is an ‘opportunity’ in TubeBuddy?

Opportunities are like helpful hints we find for you to boost your video’s success. We use data from your channel and social interactions to spot these tips based on what we’ve found to work best for the biggest YouTube channels as well as YouTube’s best practices.

What type of suggestions does the Opportunity Finder give?

The Opportunity Finder will give you the following suggestions:

– Add Cards Before Drop-Off: Add Cards before your audience drops off and redirect them to other videos.
– High Watch Percentage: This means the content of a given video has a high watch rate, which is based on Audience Retention. The higher the watch rate percentage, the more hooked viewers are… and the more of that type of content you should make.
– Low Watch Percentage: This means the content of a given video has a low watch rate. The lower the watch rate percentage, the less hooked viewers are. That means they leave too soon and don’t watch the whole video… and you should change your approach for future videos.
– Comments Awaiting Response: Reply to comments you haven’t responded to.
– Social Mentions: See if there are any X/Twitter mentions that should be retweeted or liked.
– Suggested Tags: See if any tags should be added to the video to boost its rankings.
– Blocked in Some Countries: See if your video is blocked in any country so you can take steps to fix the issue.

How does the Opportunity Finder find its suggestions?

The recommendations from Opportunity Finder are based on your past video performance. The data and suggestions are based on YouTube best practices, fully tailored to your channel, your audience, and your content.

How long does it take to receive a list of suggestions?

Opportunity Finder is tailored to your channel, audience, and content. You’ll see the most impactful opportunities and suggestions a couple of days after publishing your video, after YouTube has had a chance to present it to viewers and gauge their reactions.

How frequently is the data updated? I need real-time insights.

Videolytics updates the data every time you load a video on your browser. That means you get 100% real-time data every time you use it.
