If this is not a video of yours, this could be seen as a real problem.
New YouTube Feature Autoplays Their Video Recommendation
YouTube’s New Autoplay feature – This is Good for YouTube
Of course this keeps people on YouTube itself, which is their ultimate goal. Trouble is, your goal should be to get them off of YouTube and into your sales funnel.
Now if you look closely at my image, you can see a little checkbox on the top right that does allow the viewer to uncheck this function, but let’s be honest, most folk will not even be aware of it.
Another issue is that unlike the old ‘grid-style’ recommended videos, there is no option for the viewer to choose what video plays next.
It’s all down to the YouTube algorithm.
If the new autoplay recommendation hasn’t rolled out for your account yet, don’t worry. It is a matter of time.
So, What can you do?
This will benefit those channels that have a bunch of targeted and related videos inside their channel. I mean, you should be creating theme related channels and on each of these channels, you should have an abundance of related videos.
Never put a weight loss video on a dating channel. Goes without saying, but hey, some people do this.
Create multiple related videos for each keyword you want to rank for.
Of course, you must include the usual:
- file name
- tags of all of your videos
Create videos in a numbered series like “Part 1, Part 2, and so on. You should keep everything else in the file the same.
YouTube’s algorithm is pretty likely to show the next progression in the video series.
Now, if your channel is not an authority, this will really help you.
YouTube’s New Autoplay feature In Summary
Don’t worry too much, but do ensure you have a bunch of related videos on your channel and connect them as much as possible.
