This bug in particular affects the main view counter on the video page, and prevents the counter from updating properly even after refreshing the page. We can all thank the kind folks at YouTube for this little contribution that has gone unresolved as long as it has. That being said, this does appear to be a browser related issue. Whether this is related to how the page is cached or something else entirely, following these few steps will fix a stuck [...]

How & When Spotify Updates Play Counts

By |October 23rd, 2016|Spotify|

Ever wonder how and when Spotify updates play counts on tracks? Our new Spotify clients certainly do. One of the services we provide are royalty eligible Spotify plays, so we are asked frequently how the play counter works and when new plays will show up on Spotify. As you may know Spotify does not update the number of times a song has been played in real time. In fact the whole process is a bit obscure and not very well documented to begin with. On top of that there’s a ton of conflicting and inaccurate information available regarding when play counters get updated. Most of this misinformation can be found on the Spotify community forums, which is a bit ironic considering Spotify’s technical support actually refers [...]

How To Optimize YouTube Videos To Rank – Video Descriptions

By |October 11th, 2016|YouTube|

This is the first segment of our How To Optimize YouTube Videos To Rank series. I thought we would start with the video description because so many people leave this section blank.

For anyone who is new to SEO (search engine optimization), keep in mind that YouTube is a search engine. Every time a word or phrase is entered into search, YouTube returns what it believes to be the most relevant videos to the specified term based on a number of metrics. We refer to these words or phrases as keywords. Quick Note About Video Titles [...]

If you don’t, I suggest setting up a YouTube channel as soon as possible (preferably after you’ve had a chance to finish reading this article) because there’s really no better way to grow your audience and build a brand than by publishing gameplay videos. Especially when you can easily create highlight videos from past Twitch broadcasts. Now most of you with channels already may be thinking, “Duh, thanks for telling me something I already know…”. Be that as it may, why do so many people with highlight & gameplay videos fail to create successful channels with a large following? After all, YouTube has over a BILLION users, how [...]

By |July 14th, 2016|Social Media Marketing|

Much like the universe, the world of social networking is vast and ever expanding. There are simply too many networks available to be able to manage a successful marketing campaign on all of them. Every marketer should ask themselves, “Which networks do I need to focus on to reach the most people and have the greatest impact?” This is an important question to ask because creating a successful social presence is a huge time commitment.
