YouTube is launching a new analytics report to show your new and returning viewers by format type.
What it looks like. You will find it on the Content> All tab in YouTube analytics. You’ll initially see data based on the past 28 days by Shorts, Videos and Live. You can click on See More to dig deeper in to your channel’s viewer data.
Why we care. Having more data about your audience could help you understand whether you’re creating the right types of videos to attract new viewers, as well as a loyal audience – and could potentially uncover opportunities where you can further grow your YouTube channel.
