Exposed: Insider Secrets About YouTube Shorts Algorithm That Will Make Your Content Go Viral!
Show Notes

Are you struggling to gain traction with your YouTube Shorts content? Are you tired of creating videos that have a massive drop-off rate? Well, you're in luck because a former YouTube employee, Robert Benjamin, has leaked valuable information about the YouTube Shorts algorithm that can help you gain more subscribers and viewers on YouTube. In his video, Robert discusses the optimal length of Shorts, how to revive underperforming videos, and much more.

The key takeaway from Robert's video is that most Shorts that go viral are between 17 to 25 seconds long. Many creators are making their Shorts too short or too long, leading to a decrease in watch time. The algorithm rewards videos that keep viewers on the platform for longer periods of time, leading to increased engagement and higher chances of being recommended to a wider audience.

Robert also emphasizes the importance of creating content that is relevant to your audience's interests and generates sufficient watch time. Videos less than five seconds long are not recommended, as they do not provide enough content for YouTube to evaluate. If a video does not receive enough watch time or has no audience interested in the content, it can become deprioritized or even obsolete.

To succeed with YouTube Shorts, Robert suggests creating a massive list of subjects and covering them in 20-second videos. This strategy can help target a wider audience, enabling you to learn which subjects perform the best and turn them into long-form videos.

The YouTube seeding process is also crucial to gain views, as YouTube tries to identify who might be interested in the video based on the title, description, and tags. The video is then seeded to a small audience, and if it performs well, it will be pushed to more people. Videos on YouTube can be evergreen, meaning they can continue to gain views long after their initial posting.

In conclusion, Robert Benjamin's insider knowledge about the YouTube Shorts algorithm can help creators gain more traction and engagement on the platform. By creating relevant content, keeping viewers engaged, and learning from your experiences, you can increase your chances of going viral and reaching a wider audience.
