    Hey guys,

    I was reading the official Google Youtube partner forum to find feedback about the latest algo change, and I noticed that a lot of people is complaining that lost about 50-80% of their total daily views.

    Of course, as for Serps, this is a zero sum game, so if someone loses, others benefit, but it's much more likely reading worried people in support forums instead of the lucky ones.

    So, my question is, how are your channels reacting to this latest algo change? Views increased or decreased?

    Lurking a lil' more the official forum, the common opinion (remember that this is just a small sample of the total % of YT partners, and arguably the most raped by the new algo that went to the forum seeking for help) is that the new algo seems to favour longer videos while sinking the 30-60 sec videos.

    What's your take on this?

    No need for a user registered less than a month ago to remember the rules to a user that registered more than 3 years ago.

    That's not a double post submitted 3 minutes after I opened the topic, it's an integration post with new info posted a day after.

    I dont know what they did but I have noticed that many videos that NOTHING to do with the content of my video when its playing will show up under "related videos". I have a comedy video spoof and there are a bunch of video clips from the tv show American Horror Story showing up when mine plays WTF (and its not a horror spoof) lol

    Have you noticed a decrease in the daily total views of your channel?

    I dont really pay that much attention to the channel views. Especially since they changed the channel design. But I do find it more random when I see some of the "related videos" options.

    I meant the combined daily views of all your videos :)
