Keep an Eye on Competitors

The vidIQ Competitors Tool confirms your YouTube competitors and helps you discover what content is working for them and why. A competitor is someone publishing content to YouTube in the same topic space as you, so having that kind of data handy is incredibly useful in understanding what might work for you, or what you can improve.

By understanding what’s winning you can make better content decisions yourself by understanding content by competitors by:

  • Highest viewed
  • Views by Hours (i.e. is it still popular?)
  • Subscriber growth driven by premium content

Add Competitor Channels

To see how your competitors are doing based on their Views Per Hour, open up the vidIQ button on your browser, then click on ‘Competition.’ The new tab will compare your Channel with any other Channel on YouTube! To add a competitor just copy and paste their channel ID to the “Add” box.
