How can ViralStat help YouTubers?

Why should you be familiar with ViralStat, and how can it help your YouTube channel growth?

If you’re a YouTuber or only plan to become one, you should be aware of the high competition out there (no matter the niche really). No wonder: YouTube is the second most popular social platform of the world, and with nearly 2 Billions of users, it is a real struggle even to get noticed.

89% of marketing professionals that use video say that it provides a good return on investment (TheMarketingHelpline)

You’ve got two case scenarios to follow: create whatever comes to your mind and see how it goes in the hope it’ll trigger the audience spot one day, or do market research and investigate what’s on-demand now. Because what’s the point in producing outdated videos no-one’s going to watch anyway?

It’s also crucial to know how you rank in your niche and compare your performance against the competition.

This is where social video analytics tools, like ViralStat, come in handy. Why should you be familiar with it already?

Roughly, 400 hours of video content is uploaded to YouTube every minute (Brandwatch). Let’s face it: it’s impossible to keep an eye on everything that’s posted, not to mention most of this content is not even worth a second thought.

How can ViralStat help out in searching for the best content (inspiration)?


Popularity Leaderboards


competitors monitoring

ViralStat is the first tool worldwide to introduce daily created cross-platform leaderboards of most popular videos on YouTube, Instagram and Facebook. Not only you can sort your results by the country and engagement metrics, like view or likes count, but also identify what gets the most significant audience appreciation across 15 different niches, from Non-profits & Activism to Education.

This way, you can quickly get the indication of your viewers preferences and produce more appealing videos to grab their attention.

Cross-platform leaderboards are also great to track global video trends now and within the historical time frame of your choice. This way, you can identify which uploads scored the highest viewership and engagement or identify which of them gained the most dislikes (yes, you can check that too!). What can be a better source of content inspiration then already viral creations of the most promising creators globally?

Top Charts are also an endless mine of other social content inspiration and upcoming creators, as, beside Video Charts, we run Profile, Image and Post popularity rankings (unique in the global perspective!). Enough said, that if you want to stay up to date with the hottest topics and benchmark with any niche Influencers worldwide, here’s where you should head to in the first place.

You can further inspect any of the pulled videos detailed performance analysis, which leads us straight to another feature helping you understand the success behind each influential creation:


Detailed profiles and videos statistics insights


insight analytics performance


ViralStat allows you to get detailed insights into statistical analysis of every public profile and video of any creator on the globe.

What does that mean for you?

Simply put, you can anonymously check the overview of other creators channels, learn which of their uploads perform better or worse and compare with your progress. You can also add any profile of the YouTuber you observe and then x-ray his ongoing YouTube channel growth.

There’s no limit to profile and video pages you can inspect!

Improve your video SEO by applying tags of the best performing uploads – the list of video tags it’s also there, ready to copy so your video has a chance to appear next to viral content of creators you aspire to.

If you feel like keeping an even a closer eye on new upload of the creator you follow or compete with, just set his video to power tracking and its statistics will be refreshed every three hours! You won’t be able to obtain such frequent updates on others uploads anywhere else, and therefore the potential of that feature is simply huge! It allows you to capture significant increase or drop in view count (fake boosting!), monitor the real performance of creators you monitor and analyze your competitors’ videos thoroughly right from the beginning!
