YouTube to provide more viewership info

Filed under: Culture,Technology — Tranimal @ 11:36 am


The popular video-sharing site YouTube is giving contributors more details about who’s watching their video clips and when, offering advertisers additional insights they can use to target their pitches. The free program, known as YouTube Insight, also could help bands schedule their concerts and help anyone time the release of a new video. The launch of Insight on Thursday comes as Google Inc. looks for ways to make money off its $1.76 billion purchase of YouTube in 2006. Despite growing interest in online video ads, many marketers have stayed away from user-generated video like what’s on YouTube.

Next thing you know they’ll know how many times you watched that new Britney video….. Don’t be skird. Yet.
