It is that time to reflect on the past year and this year I am starting with my YouTube channel. In case you missed any of these blockbuster hits you can watch them now!

This year I had over 32,000 views (up over 10,000 views from last yearThank You) on my YouTube channel and gained over 150 new followers. This is the first year where I had five videos over 5 minutes long in top ten. I still stand by the YouTube law that videos over 3 minutes rarely get fully watched but in the end content is king – so maybe I did something right with those 5. I gained 3% in audience retention from last year.

Only two of the top 10 videos were actually published this year (Editing and Saving CSS with Google Chrome and Data Load Utility in WebSphere Commerce Introduction) a 57 second video and a 14 minute video.

Most of my views believe it or not still come from external search (mostly Google) or YouTube search, accounting for almost 50% of my traffic sources.

Traffic source – Top 5 Views
External website 8,097 (25%)
YouTube search 7,301 (23%)
Unknown – embedded player 5,213 (16%)
Unknown – direct 3,861 (12%)
YouTube suggested video 3,191 (9.9%)

Before we get to the list let’s look at some demographics:
