How to tell if your YouTube video is being watched
YouTube has a new tool called *Insight* that can help. To get to it, log in to your YouTube account, and click on the tab that says *Insight*. From there you will find a lot of data, but my favorite one is called *Hot Spots*, which measures audience attention. The audience attention is higher if the video is being watched all the way through, and possibly even rewound and watched again.
In one of my test videos of my dog, there is a very high Audience attention rating, although a very low hit count. People are watching all the way through. Other videos, which don't have the same compelling interest, are lower as people click away.
Take a look at this data. It can help you evaluate if you are creating useful and interesting videos that are actually being watched, or not.
