I think I'm going back to Youtube....
#1
I haven't used Youtube much lately other than uploading (hosting) videos. When they changed the minimum requirements for their monetization it hurt my YT strategy quite a bit. I had multiple niche channels. In total they far surpassed YT's minimal requirements and they all used the same Google Adsense account, so Google knew they were all me.

And they seemed to make a shift to wanting "stars". I don't want to be onscreen, let alone a "star". I just want to make helpful and interesting videos...and have some benefit for doing so. Their ranking algo also seemed to favor longer videos.

But YT's recent addition of Shorts has me motivated to focus more on YT again. Shorts fit my own personality better and I like making quick, short videos. I'm not sure how it will go, but I'm excited about this new format.

Do you have any links to what YT is looking for? I'm getting back into it myself after being very inconsistent the last few years.

I started a thread in the Stampede sub-forum as an intro to YT shorts:
[SHORT CONTENT] YouTube Shorts

I'll continue to post on that thread and others in the future...

My guess is that keyword relevancy will be important when a Short is first uploaded, then user engagement analytics will become more important as YT gets more usage data.

PS. Are you getting back into YT because of Shorts or just because?
