YouTube subscribers are the important audience a YouTube channel can have. So it is a relevant question if you can see who subscribed to your YouTube channel and what else can you know about them.
In this YouTube tutorial, we are going to show you how to see your subscribers on YouTube, what you can see about them, and what you can learn about them in YouTube analytics.
How to see your subscribers on YouTube?
Here is how to see your subscribers on YouTube:
- Sign in to YouTube studio.
- Click on the ‘Dashboard’ if you are not there.
- Scroll down to ‘Recent Subscribers’ section
- Click on ‘See All’.
- Here you can see everyone who subscribed to your YouTube channel
What can you check about the subscribers?
First, as you can see, by default YouTube only displays channels that have subscribed to you in the last 90 days.
You can set this time period to lifetime so you can see everyone who subscribed to the channel since you have created your YouTube channel
You can see the channel name of the subscribers and YouTube also shows you how many subscribers your subscribers have. This is a great way to find YouTube channels that you can potentially collaborate with as they also have a significant subscriber base.
So besides contacting them here, you can also subscribe to YouTube channels from this window. Although this ‘Subscribe’ make it easy to do sub 4 sub, we strongly recommend against using this YouTube growth tactic.
You can also check when the YouTube channel has subscribed to your channel.
Can’t See subscribers on YouTube
Keep in mind, that you won’t see all of your subscribers here. YouTube has a privacy setting that enables YouTube channels to hide their subscriptions.
So if someone chose to hide his or her YouTube subscriptions, you won’t see that channel in this YouTube subscriber list.
Also, if you are using YouTube Studio mobile app, you can’t see your subscribers the way you can see on the dashboard.
Therefore if you are on mobile, you should sign in to YouTube studio using a mobile browser if you want to see the subscribers of your YouTube channel.
YouTube Channel Subscriber Analytics
If you want to gain more insights about your YouTube channel subscribers, you can get that in YouTube Analytics.
In the subscription analytics report, you can also see data about people who have hidden their subscriptions.
The data is anonymized, so you won’t see specific YouTube channel names, but you will see more insightful information about the subscribers in an aggregated format.
For instance, by analyzing YouTube Analytics data:
- you can see in the Subscription source report how people subscribed to your YouTube channel (from watching a video, your YouTube channel page, YouTube search, etc.)
- which videos are bringing you the most YouTube subscribers
- from which countries or regions do people subscribe to your channel
- on which day how many subscribers you have gained.
So based on this, you can see which videos and traffic sources are bringing you the most YouTube subscribers so you can double down on that if you want to get more YouTube subscribers.
