Returning YouTube Viewers

YouTube is now emphasizing the “returning viewers” analytic as a top factor in deciding which YouTube channels should be rewarded with more views. But it’s a little complicated to explain the first time. Gwen gets it but Dane is still learning, so she explains some things to him. To do this, we talk about what exactly is a YouTube view, as well as how unique viewers and new viewers are measured.
