Kevin, great insights. I've been serious on RUplayers for 2 years, having had a channel I did nothing with for many many years. My growth was fantastic going into 2024. But, in February, things took a huge dip. I publish 1 long form per week, every Sunday. My long forms are cars and DIY and very evergreen in nature, growing slowly and probably not "viral" worthy given the topics. My RUplayers shorts are quick videos I shoot on my phone, nearly all car-related. I have had lots of success with them and the past month, lucky if I break 1,000 views. I publish a short daily. So, IMHO, Google is playing with the algo for the past month .. I see no correlation with "fresh" content daily sending me more views. My channel maintains a healthy viewership per day, but spreads out among a lot of content I have. My entire focus is an evergreen-type channel that is consistent and I'm trying to avoid "trends" that make stuff pop and fade weeks later. Thoughts?

Why are the reasons you chose as explanations for "views being down" as (a) "time of year" and (b) "people just not on youtube as much as they use to be"???? I'm on RUplayers more than ever. I play it in my car. I play it in a 2nd monitor when I work. I carry it around and listen on my headphones while cooking or raking the leaves. I'm on RUplayers for 8 hours a day...every day. Maybe RUplayers is just diverting your viewers to other channels. People's interests change over time. I look at my "subscribers" tab and 90% of what is there....I"m not interested in it at ALL anymore. I changed over time. And RUplayers identified what I was "into now" as I changed.

With my channel it went different than yours. Last year I uploaded every weekend, but I took a 6-week break in January. What happened is that most of my previous video's got promoted instead of the new video. So my old video's get more views now. So I'll upload not every weekend anymore, as it's very exhausting. Also, my video's get more views than I have subscribers. Regarding shorts, at my channel they are sneak previews and redirect to the long form video. This boosted the long form video's also. I hope this helps. 💖💖

My plan for 2024 is to make short, low effort videos, from 1 to 7 minutes long. Most of them will be the Re-editing of my longest videos, each one divided in 2-3 pieces of 3-4 minutes. So, I'll be able to post videos 1-2 times per week, and make the algorithm happy.

Kavin, here's my experience and advice: never post shorts on your main channel. While they may garner more views and subscribers initially, the earnings from millions of short views pale in comparison to a long-format video with only a few thousand views. Moreover, subscribers gained through shorts typically don't engage with long-format content. Despite this, RUplayers will continue to show your long videos to them, resulting in more impressions but a lower click-through rate. Consequently, RUplayers interprets this as poor performance, leading to the decline of your long-form videos. I experienced this firsthand, recognized it early on, and ceased uploading shorts to my main channel

It's crazy youtube is copying tiktok and tiktok is copying youtube. If you do livestreams on youtube the portrait format gets pushed on the shorts feed to be similar to tiktoks for you feed. landscape format livestreams are only pushed out as normal. Tiktok have been trying to push longer videos in the landscape format so copying youtube regular type videos.

RUplayers is ran by FAVORITISM If you’re no monetized RUplayers will not push your videos they’re trying to control who / who doesn’t get seen have y’all not noticed yet ? RUplayers before monetization used to be grateful for just having people upload videos so they would push everyone’s video based off tags since monetization came around they feel like we need them so they’re being picky on who they make famous aka CONTROL / FAVORITISM we need to stop allowing middle man apps like Facebook , IG , RUplayers get away with this and say if you don’t start paying every account 1 cent for every like we get we ALL will delete are accounts THEY NEED US ! Not the other way around It’s time to rise up & stop letting these idiots have all the money 🤦‍♂️

But i dont want to do shorts. So i decided to stop wasting my time and focus on other things

I have noticed this shift in RUplayers too, especially in shorts. Previously, up until November 2023, shorts views came so easily, but now I am lucky if it goes to even a fraction of what it was. I am seeing more results when I started focusing more on consistent longform and made more minimalist and simple thumbnails.

honestly having RUplayers and shorts on the same platform just feels like a huge mistake, shorts should either be a separate platform or just non-existent, because all it seems RUplayers is doing is trying to dip into tick-tocks pool of viewers and creators and as a result is losing its own.

I agree. Shorts is just a cheap alternative to TikTok. TikTok has already established itself as the place to go for vertical format entertainment videos. There's no point trying to be them. RUplayers needs to use what makes them unique and create a new genre out of vertical format

I just decided to go back to the old school way of YouTubing, I don't even design a thumbnail now as I kept exhausting myself design after design after design and so on, no design seemed to work despite having them designed by professionals (or so they say), so what I do now is just choose 1 of the 3 randomly generated thumbnails we get during the upload process, and to make things better, doing this boosted my views and engagement by QUITE a LOT!! I suck at titles, so I'm just gonna keep mine simple and straight to the point of my content. So many, too many small channels are all jumping on the "monetization" bandwagon, and more are trying to fit on such a wagon, I was one of them, but after seeing the shit storm that the platform has become, and seeing how sad of a place it's become to try and genuinely grow, I didn't just get off the bandwagon, I leaped off it 80's action movie styles, and watched this horrible looking bandwagon disappear out of my sight for good, meaning, I'm going back to how RUplayers used to be which is just making content for enjoyment and NOT being part of this whole hype of overacting, challenges, being overly enthusiastic, monetization, chasing trends, chasing big influencers, and so on. I'm done with all of that, old school is the way to go, and it's not just me that's going this direction too.

I was just thinking about taking a similar route with my RUplayers channel. Because it's surely exhausting to keep chasing the algorithm, and the money, the trends, the big fish in the field. It's damn exhausting. I made a decision the other day to slow down and just go back to making videos the way I used to. Because all these "rules" aren't working anymore. It's like RUplayers is suddenly a game of luck, to say the least.

Great vid as usual Kevin, but I was wondering if you could help me on something I was wondering. If RUplayers mostly boost your views when you upload a video, do you think that daily uploading would favorise an even bigger exponential growth? I feel like it should; RUplayers also want to win the vertical battle against TikTok and Instagram, so do you think that it would promote more long format videos of the creators that makes a lot of shorts?

16 часов назад
@KevinChee
@KevinChee

I don't think RUplayers promotes long form if your Shorts is taking off. In fact, they would promote your Shorts even more to viewers because they want you to help build up their Shorts content and hopefully win the whole vertical format war. I haven't tried daily uploads before with long form nor will I, it is just too tiring and I don't have that many content.

I can safely say that in my experience this is not the case. The compound effect keeps kicking in. At around 35k subs I started getting much more views, like 10k at least within 24 hrs. One video 2 weeks ago had racked up more than 600k views and still getting around 1k every hour or so .You need to keep posting but twice a week is plenty. A good video can have a 3 month life span. So just keep going for good content. 10 - 25k was slow for me too bro. You will spike again but next time will be much bigger :) keep going!

Another thing, RUplayers isn't going anywhere, it will be here 20+ years from now, if you start today, you'll be ahead of the people who start five years from now 😉, don't worry about AI, in the future, we have plenty of safeguards in place, along with safeguards for EOTT (Educational Observation Time Travel), safeguards and ethical standards for Bioprinting (3D printing replacement of human biological components), safeguards for the mechanics for the HarmonyWave Resonator (Uses frequency with various metals and crystals to alter the genetic makeup to heal diseases of all types), it's all good folks, just maintain a positive mindset and trust the process, I promise those in control are abiding by a quantum computed algorithm to maintain survival of humans for more than a millenia 🙂.
