YouTube Is Gigantic…

…with no signs of its growth slowing down any time soon.

How gigantic? By some calculations, 1/4 of the world’s population is already on YouTube. That’s amazing to think about… but also potentially very overwhelming if you are a creator or brand trying to understand your relative “place” in this vast kingdom of YouTube.

Don’t Compare Yourself to 1/4 of the World

The 15 high-level categories that YouTube segments channels into is a great start, but it only gives you a limited perspective. VideoAmigo took on the challenge to develop a comprehensive system of Categories, Themes, Conversations, and Topics that classify the YouTube-iverse into manageable chunks of channels that are talking about similar things.

By creating this frame of reference, VideoAmigo delivers more meaningful comparisons and benchmarks for every YouTuber. We’ve talked about our nested classification system in many of our other posts (but if you want a refresher, jump over here for a moment and then be sure to come right back…)

VideoAmigo Doesn’t Stop At Just A Tiered Taxonomy

To allow for even more context, we added filterable facts including a channel’s Competitive Set, Geography, Language… and the subject of this series: Producer Type.
