Is the video taking off? Are your videos showing up as the suggested videos next to the video that has 56k views?

I usually have 2 other of my videos showing as suggested videos in the 56k video. And yes it's taking off

Congrats on your first video taking off, that means you should see a nice spike in new subs too! Most people find videos by the suggested videos showing up next to the video they are currently watching, so you need to make sure your videos are showing up as suggested to keep people watching your videos. Even if they click away and watch someone else's video, you will still get credit for their watch time since they continued to watch videos on YouTube through your video. I understand you want them to watch all your other videos, but that means you have to make sure the tags, thumbnails, and titles are similar so they will suggest your other videos instead of others videos.

Thanks for the help I'm going to change all the tags so there similar to each other

Make sure the tags are representative of what is in the video, which they should be since they are all related to exploring. Don't change anything on the video that is taking off.

Reading this, I also wonder what kind of tags do people typically use? I have things like "Explore" "Exploring" "Idaho" "Adventure" "Travel", and then maybe something related to the content specifically. Like, if it takes place in the city of Boise, I'll add "Boise" as a tag; or "Desert" or "Canyon", but those seem.... kind of broad enough to be meaningless.

I have a feeling I don't "get" tag usage really well.

I think the tags help your video appear to more people like if people search for Nevada and place you explore is in Nevada and you put that in one of the tags it will appear before other videos without Nevada in the tags. I basically put tags on the location etc

      Two videos in the space of a week! One unplanned urban explore in Boise; the other a desert adventure to the bottom of a canyon where an old 1950's car rusts away. The "Abandoned garage" vid is my first with the Samsung S9; I held the phone straight up like a total n00b.
      Observations and critiques welcome.
       
       
      --Happy exploring!

      I just recently finished a video that is maybe 5 or 6 minutes long. I added an opening title and closing title in PowerDirector 15 but these are 5 seconds or less-- not a significant add to the length of the video. I chopped it and edited and produced it in a matter of twenty minutes, all said and done. Even some time to mix up a gin & tonic (to keep away the malaria).
      Now I go to load this into YouTube and it says... "Uploading: 1 hour and 37 minutes"
      Wait, what? Is everyone met with this unusually high upload time? I can't help but wonder about some of you folks that have uploaded videos over half an hour, or in the case of EWU, recently uploading their 2-hour live streams as videos. Do you just set it to load at 9pm, have some scotch and turn in, and then finish it up at sunrise or something? Am I doing something weird with files that makes you wonder, "maybe lay off the juice a bit, there, Coyote, and load things in five minutes like I do!" Is there a way to zip or compact files so it doesn't take a whole TV season to load a new vid?
      Inquiring canines want to know. Thanks!

      Exploring an abandoned granite facility and warehouse where it looks like they used to do the cutting and processing there. We also found the logbook/recordbook of all orders done there and employee information (not showing to protect their privacy). I hope you enjoy the episode and will appreciate the Sub for support! Take care explorers!
