    Hey All!

    So I have been uploading everyday for about 6 months now.. During Thanksgiving I was at 1,400 views per hour/ 18,000 per day. Now its down to 200 per hour 3,000-4,000 per day.

    I'm thinking about uploading every other day. I thought uploading every day would boost my channel, but seems to be doing the opposite. I see some channels not upload for weeks and still getting 20,000 views a day :( Just feel like I do a lot of work for only 50 views or so per new video..

    What do you all think? Think the Algo will cut me off? Or should I just keep doing one each day in hopes that the magical youtube fairy comes my way?

    Thanks!

    Mommy B

    Well, I don't think that you NEED to upload everyday. You could upload every other day or a couple times a week and be fine. I also think if you uploaded, say 2-3 times a week, it would give your individual videos more time to "shine"...but that's just my thoughts.

    Well the time when you were seeing a lot of views was at a time when YouTube typically gets more views. We are kind of in a lull time right now and it is typically the "slow season" so to speak. I would try posting every other day for a couple week and see how it has changed your views then you can change upload schedule accordingly! Good luck! :)

    Thanks so much! I think I will try that. We started another channel uploading just twice a week and one video already has over 100 views.. so maybe its better this way!

    I think you need to improve the quality of your video. Maybe thumnails, background music, copyright, script ...

    But then again, that´s some decent numbers, way better than mine, I get about 10-20 views per day, tops!

    Hey there,
    Sorry to hear your predicament! I would begin with analysing your analytics from when you received the jump in views. There could be indications of whether you should revisit a theme that did well for your channel.

    Using views as an indication of channel performance would not be my primary source. Instead I would have a look at the watch time and consideration compare the differences.

    You can also look at the retention which will indicate how well you hooked the viewers.

    Video duration also plays a big part. Has it changed or remained the same since the peak? I have tested reducing a channel from posting two 10 minute videos per day to posting one 30 minute video per day. It has exploded since.

    But as another poster has mentioned already, there are also external factors to consider which may be playing a role in the dip.

    The channels that you benchmark yourself against, have they been around longer than you? Are they your competitors or just random channels lol?

    Finally, your titles and thumbnails may have been better around the peak. Have you tested for keywords that may perform strongly for your channel?

    Hope even a tiny bit of this helps :)

    Dave
