YouTube Analysis Understanding Video Sentiment

You can slice and dice YouTube Analysis many different ways. From video views to comments to likes vs. dislikes, etc.

But how about how viewers “feel” about your content?

Enter YouTube Sentiment Analysis.

Using the Pagezii YouTube report, you can understand how viewers feel about certain topics. The report analyzes popular video tags within your industry. From this analysis, Pagezii tells you what topics receive positive vs. negative reaction.

Here’s a breakdown of the YouTube report and how to use sentiment analysis to optimize YouTube content.

We can also analyze how viewers feel about certain video topics. This is what we call sentiment analysis.

A video with a lot of views and engagement doesn’t mean it’s had a positive reaction with viewers. And this is where the video analytics waters get murky. So to help steer your YouTube ship in the right direction, we use sentiment analysis.

YouTube Analysis – Understanding Sentiment

Sentiment means the feeling someone has after an experience. Keeping it simple, we can break sentiment down into positive or negative.

And this is what the YouTube report does with sentiment analysis. It shows you what viewers like and don’t like.

Sticking with the Acme CRM example, here’s what YouTube sentiment analysis could look like.

Positive Sentiment

Using Pagezii Sentiment Analysis

So, how can we use sentiment analysis moving forward?

Determine a Theme

We can group these keywords together to determine themes across positive and negative sentiment.

Looking at positive sentiment analysis, we see most keywords center around business development. Videos focusing on sales, marketing, and customers all tend to get a positive reaction from viewers.

On the other hand, our negative sentiment comes from tags revolving around topics that are techy in nature. We can classify tags like database, computing, and domain under this theme.

And just like that, we now have an idea what kind of videos get a positive reaction. Moving forward, Acme CRM should focus on creating videos for biz-dev audiences.

A Closer Look

We can also look at individual tags to give us an idea of what our next video should focus on.

In Acme CRM’s example above, “Sales” is dominating engagement in the CRM industry. Because this tag gets high engagement that’s positive from viewers, publishing a video with a sales topic is a good step moving forward.

On the flip side, we see strong negative sentiment associated with the “Computing” tag. This again shows us to stay away from creating videos that are more technical in nature.

Analyzing YouTube Content

You can analyze YouTube channels a number of ways. But how can you use your analysis to shed light on what videos to create moving forward?

This is where sentiment analysis comes into play. Looking at view or engagement totals is useful, but to get a complete picture we have to know if viewers are watching and engaging with our videos in a positive way.
