We love YouTube as much as you do, and we also know that YouTube analytics is something we all want to look at.

To get the data, you have to add the YouTube channel to your Socialinsider project.

That’s very easy to do.

Step 1: Go to "Add Social Profile"

Add Social Profile - Socialinsider

Step 2: Type the link in the search bar

Type the link in the search bar - Socialinsider

Step 3: Click on "Add profile"

Add profile to your Socialinsider project

That’s it! You will see the YouTube channel in the list of profiles.

But sometimes, it might take a while to add the channel that you want.

As you can see in the picture below, I was looking for National Geographic’s channel. I got the link for the YouTube channel, but Socialinsider can’t find the channel I wanted.

Not the right YouTube channel - Socialinsider

If your YouTube channel link looks like this - https://www.youtube.com/c/NatGeo - with a “c” in the link, follow these steps:

Step 1: Go to any video from that channel

Choose a video on YouTube

Step 2: Under the video, you will see the name of the channel. Click on the icon

Click on the YouTube icon of the channel

You will be directed to the YouTube channel with the right link.

Step 3: Copy that link and add it to your Socialinsider project

Add a YouTube channel to Socialinsider

Step 4: Click on "Add profile"

Add profile to your project - Socialinsider

As you can see, this link was the right one.

Ready, Set, Go! Now let's go back to our YouTube analytics.
