Frequently Asked Questions

Is Videolytics free to use?

Yes, it's 100% free. In the free plan, you get all the information, from traffic volume to the SEO score and social shares.

The only limitation to the free plan is that you can only compare a video against the most popular video of its channel. For Pro and Legend plans, you can compare it against any video you want.

How is Videolytics better than YouTube analytics?

YouTube analytics provides data for videos you upload. However, it can't help you analyze the performance of your competitors' videos. YouTube doesn't give you SEO recommendations either or information on social shares.

Videolytics lets you see the performance of any video uploaded to YouTube. From the traffic volume to their SEO performance and social media popularity, Videolytics helps you keep an eye on your competitors and stay on top of your niche's trends.

The result? You create videos that rank high on YouTube and get shared by your viewers. More views + more shares = faster growth. What's not to love?
