Optimize Your YouTube Video to Get More Views with This Chrome Extension

2 minute read


If you’re creating and posting videos to YouTube, you’ve probably wondered at some point, “How can I get more views?” This Chrome extension can help.

The vidIQ Vision for YouTube for Chrome extension is designed to give you insight behind all your favorite viral YouTube videos and provides tons of helpful metrics. Without this kind of analytical tool, videos are a black box. You’re restricted to just guessing at how well they do, other than seeing their views, making it difficult to learn about how to improve your own campaigns. With this extension, you get all the information that you possibly want to optimize your own video to get more views.

  • First, head to the Chrome Web Store and search for vidIQ Vision for YouTube. Grant it the permissions it asks for.
  • When you click into any YouTube video (for example, let’s take a TED video), an analytical report appears on the right-hand side of your screen and is literally stuffed with information.



  • You can see metrics like the average views per hour, the minutes watched, the number of interactions the video has had on various social media platforms, the tags for the video, and even its estimated earnings.



  • You can also access a dashboard with analytics regarding your own YouTube channel. To access this, just click into the extension and authenticate it using your YouTube account.



  • From here, you’ll be able to access the dashboard panel where information about your YouTube channel will be compiled, giving you truly data-based insight into your performance on YouTube.
