YouTube videos now classified based on the time users spend watching
For those who have an active channel on YouTube, it was always important to have many “likes” on their videos, as a measure of popularity (and to generate income, in some cases). But some time some changes are being implemented at the site, and now the site search engine has been optimized based on the time that users spend watching videos, instead of having numbers of clicks.
These changes and improvements, added a timer that users spend watching a video or a particular channel. From YouTube say these changes mean “less clicks and more time watching videos”, and also means giving owners a better way to channel your audience to understand, and improve their way of promotion.
Many have seen some Videos have like 100 clicks and only 30 prints, which is not very logical at the time of listing of the “best videos” or present them at the top of search results. Perhaps with this move, viral videos need some extra time to hook people and keep them glued to the screen.
