    Hello everyone!

    I am using vidIQ google chrome plugin and when I check my videos, I see this (pic below) Referrers and Embed SRC. Btw what is the difference between the two? If someone knows. It is not "referrer views" because when I hover my mouse cursor in the "Referrer" word it shows website links. How to increase mine?

    embeds are sites that embedded your video, mostly they are just bot sites that does that to most of new videos. (hover to that page and you will see some links)
    refferers is it's from where your getting the views.

    I really thought that Embed SRC are sites that embed my video using this code: https://youtu(.)be/WsptdUFthWI
    While Referrers uses this full url code to there sites:
    https://www.youtube(.)com/watch?v=WsptdUFthWI

    Thanks kabayan!

    the embeds? i don't really think it will help rank or do anything to your video, just focus on getting more views.
    try joining facebook groups related to your video niche and post your video there.
