    Received less than half the money I was supposed to (SOLVED)

    I've just resolved the issue. Turns out the stats weren't properly tracked because I only joined the MCN in the middle of the month so the earnings were sent in two separate payments, one by Google and the second one by my MCN. I just didn't look properly.

I’m not a numbers person but I’m trying to be because even with my businesses, it’s important when it comes to advertising and...

    The best posting advice!

    A lot of Youtubers know to set their posting schedule according to their Analytics but to those of you who don't know, it is one of the best things you can do for your channel.

    Audience retention

    im always getting comments saying that people love my videos/series but then my audience retention is never really that high under analytics. I mean I do get numbers that watch the whole videos, but a good majority don't. Should I focus on the analytics as much as I do? I don't get it

    View Count Help

    Hello, I have 2 videos up on YouTube and YouTube says my total view count is 26, which is incorrect. If I add up the two videos, 38 and 51, I get 89. It seems I should have 89 views, but YouTube says I only have 26. Will it update and correct itself eventually or is there a way to fix this?

    Let's talk audience retention times

    I try not to look at these part of the analytics (yes I know it is important) because it can just be depressing. After you work hard on a video, you don't want to find out the average watch duration is a low percentage... So. Should the retention times be cause for a alarm. These are averages...
