    Hey guys, I got a short question:

    I plan to start a review YouTube channel. Since I'm native German speaker myself and I got a good friend who's capable of speaking Spanish, I plan to upload videos in English, German and Spanish.

    Would you create one channel and upload videos in all three languages on there, or would it be smarter to create three channels?

    Authority huge channels make more money in long term.
    Small channels make some decent money (but not same as huge ones), but if you create xxx channels then you would XXX your earnings!

    I think it is way easier to create multilangual channel, because bigger your channel = bigger authority from youtube = easier rankings, thats how I see it

    It will work best to do 3 different channels if you ask me. If I subscribed to your channel I would like to watch videos that I can understand. I think you'll be able to build a more loyal fanbase by dividing them into separate channels.

    That's not how it works.

    Doesn't make sense at all.

    Thank you. Any idea if having videos in different languages on my channel will hurt my SEO?

    Better to start with different channels and instead of starting them all together you can go with 1 at a time.
    Starting different channels will make you appear as an authority channel in that language and area also if you gain main view, you will also end up in the trending section.

    Well, three different languages in one and the same YouTube channel does not make any sense to me.

    Personally I would focus on German/English only and see how it goes. :)
