As you all have probably seen, over the last two months, I've been uploading Moat related YouTube videos and posting them on the forums each time. Since I'm no longer making Moat related content, I want to give you all a look into the ❤❤❤❤ytics of my channel to see how it's been affected.
Daily Views by Video
As you can see, each upload gets me a spike in viewership. The two most noticeable spikes are the dark green (second) and the yellow (last). The dark green is the Kosovos map secret video that no-one cared about, and the last is my latest video which was uploaded after the servers were blacklisted. So, it's all as you'd expect it to be.
Watch Time From Subscribers
None of you are subscribed lol. I may have been able to farm views, but definitely not subs.
Traffic Source Types
The first screenshot here is my Tryhard's Paradise video. The second is my Crate Opening video. The third is my most viewed non-moat video. What can we take away from this? Well, 35% of the views on Tryhard's Paradise were from the youtube search when people were looking for content. However, the youtube search percentage has gone down enough to not even be shown on the Crate Opening video. This indicates that people aren't looking for Moat Content anymore. It's no secret that the server blacklist has affected the server's player count, so these two are probably related.
A second noticeable statistic in the three screenshots is the Channel Pages percentage, which is the majority of the traffic for my non-moat video. It was one of the last videos I posted before I started Moat content, so I can happily assume that people who saw my Moat video looked through my channel for other things and clicked on whatever they saw. This makes perfect sense since it got less views before I posted Tryhards Paradise than after. This is seen on this graph which shows the views on the non-moat video
A final noticeable part of the traffic source is the percentage of external traffic on the two Moat videos. It's literally all just from the Moat.gg website, what did you expect?
Traffic Source: Youtube search
The first is my Youtube search traffic on Tryhard's Paradise. The second is my Youtube search traffic in the last 28 days. Firstly, who searched Paradise Montage, and how has that lead to someone finding the video? Secondly, it's all just Moat.gg. All the views are from Moat.
These are the youtube tags on Tryhard's Paradise. The plan behind the tags was to look up "Moat Gaming", see which channels appear, and then put them in my tags. Is it something to be proud of? No. Did it get me any views? No. Was it worth the attempt? Probably not. This brings me nicely back to the fact that "paradise montage" lead to my video. I don't understand it, but I'll take it.
Farming the forums for views is easy. Give it an appealing title, decent thumbnail, post it on the forums at a good time and you've got yourself a near guaranteed 100 views. I've not been making Moat views just for views, that would be stupid, but it's something that I've noticed during the time I was uploading videos. If you want to see any other stats from my channel, feel free to ask for it in the replies.
Enjoy the free information, do with it as you will.
