    Hello guys, I know this might be a noob question for many but I am still kinda a newbie (although learning every day) so here we go.

    I am wondering how I can actually analyze other peoples youtube videos.

    I know about the statistics function under the video but a) it's not really detailed and b) some channels hide it.

    I know of websites like socialblade and vidiq but they are only vague as well telling me about subscribe growth.

    I want to see stats for each individual videos.

    I want to know:

    • about the views and the growth curve of the views (do they buy views or not)
    • is the video struck by copyright or didn't youtube mark it as copyright infrigment (this interests me especially for music cover channels, as many channels seem to earn through adsense although most of my cover attempts get struck by copyright even though it's made by me)
    • do these channels have monetization enabled and is the video itself monetized (also because of reasons above but it's important for many niches)
    Thank you in advance!

    I know socialblade shows view charts for the past 30 days. As for copyright infringement I don't know the answer. To see if it is monetized just turn off ad blocker and see if you see any ads. Or if you have ad blocker enabled it tells you if any ads are on that page and being blocked.

    Socialblade gives a lot of information of the changes of viewership and subscriber count.

    Vidiq gives insight into watchtime, but is a very bad representation of revenue.

    For revenue, I suggest watching actual youtubers talk about their revenue, as right now, it is incredibly low, and while Vidiq shows 1500$ revenue for some, it actually is 10x less.

    Thanks for the answers guys.

    The thing is, even people who havent enabled monetization get ads on their videos and for example for copyrighted content, the owner of the rights could have simply chosen to not delete the video but instead he gets all the ad revenue.

    So even though ads are shown, it doesn't mean the creator gets the revnue at all or is even able to monetize the video.

    I know vidiq is off a lot on their revenue but that's also not what I asked. I think this would be the best possible scenario, like if no user had ad block and everybody would be clicking on the ads

    In terms of whether or not a channel owner is buying views, you'll usually be able to tell by spikes in the views graph (as long as they are displaying that information). Of course, the daily stats views will look similar if a person has thousands of subscribers, because there's a good chance that their subs will watch the video upon it's release, but if the channel has very few subs and there is a huge spike in views at the beginning (10,000 views), then there is a 99% chance that they are buying views.

    That's what I said. I wonder what it says about the people hiding their viewing graph statistics when these are the channels to me that are the most interesting because they grew so fast!
