Our Top 10 Most Watched Travel Videos
For travel bloggers and travel websites, January is the month to look back and reflect over the journey’s taken, new friends made, and even a good hard look at the analytics of your various Internet outposts.
Today, I was browsing through my YouTube analytics and found myself quite pleased by some of my findings. We’ve produced 173 videos from our travels thus far, and it seems that folks are enjoying them.
Here’s a few of the statistics I found:
- Our videos received 94,056 views. While that seems like a low number compared to some of the crazy videos that light up the Internet these days, I’m pleased to say that this number represents a 49% increase over last year. As our videos are laser specific on various destinations around the world, I’m pleased to be able to share with our sponsors that we’ve been able to present their stories to a highly targeted crowd.
- However, I’m most pleased that people are not only finding our videos, but they are actually watching our videos. Get this, folks watched 44,276 minutes in our Roaming Boomers video channel last year. That’s 737.93 hours, and 30.747 days! The world spent just over 30 days watching our video. Cowabunga!
The world spent 737 hours hours watching our travel videos in 2012!
Well, enough of that. Here’s our top ten most watched travel videos in order of views.
