YouTube Expands Its Analytics For Artists With New ‘Total Reach’ Metric Across All Formats

YouTube is working hard to give its music creators better insight into how well their tracks are doing across various target audiences.

The company mentioned how it plans on expanding its Analytics for Artists feature with the addition of a new metric called ‘Total Reach’. This is what provides artists and their respective teams the chance to glance over how the music section is doing.

Before the launch of such a feature, we saw how this Total Reach metric only entailed official content put up by artists as well as other long-form types of video content put up by fans.

But the popular video platform says that this new and updated feature display how many audience members are engaging with music artists’ content online through so many types of formats.

The news was confirmed today by YouTube Music’s global head, Lyor Cohen who explained in her recently published blog post that Shorts made by fans were experiencing a rise in the average audience’s viewership by nearly 80% since the start of this year. Additionally, so many artists happened to be active on the Shorts app and they witnessed more than 50% of new subscribers through Shorts posts.

The firm is also making big plans for the launch of an innovative Songs section across its Analytics feature. This would be designed to assist artists and respective teams to witness how fans are paying attention to music or how they’re creating it through so many video formats.

The new section designated for Songs features artists and their famous tracks that arose in the past month and which tracks were being utilized on Shorts the most.
Shorts are best seen as the driving force that allows so many followers of the platform to explore new depths of a celeb’s catalog. This entails music videos, live performances, interviews, and lyric videos among others.

Just take a look at leading music celebs like Selena Gomez and Rema that have made it big across all the video formats on the app. They’ve crossed the 60 million mark for their music and Shorts for the hit title track ‘Calm Down’. And when so many fans put up their Shorts using that song, the viewership skyrocketed further with nearly 350 million viewers arising in January of 2023 only.
