What is CTR and why is it important for growing your channel?

CTR (Click-Through Rate) is a click-through rate that reflects the ratio between the number of impressions of your video and the number of clicks on it. This percentage is calculated entirely within YouTube and helps determine how engaging your content is to audiences on the platform.

How does CTR affect channel development?
A high CTR increases your video's chances of being featured in the recommendations section, making it more visible to new viewers. According to the platform itself, activity and interaction with your video is considered a positive signal for YouTube's algorithms, which helps promote content.

How to find out your CTR and where is it located?
To view CTR, go to Creator Studio, select the video you want, then go to Analytics and select the Views tab.

How to increase CTR?
Attractive design: The preview and title of the video should be simple, bright and consistent with the theme of the video. They should instantly interest the viewer and reflect the essence of the content.
Originality and creativity: Use unique and colorful covers, make titles clear and specific.
Testing: Experiment with previews and titles to determine what works best for your audience.
