A few days ago I uploaded a video to YouTube, and within a few days I seen that the traffic source "YouTube suggested video" (Highlighted below, and blue in the chart) was the main reason why my views per day kept on increasing.
I have noticed that in the previous day, my "suggested video" traffic sources was in decline; which meant my views per day was down. I have a strong feeling based on views I see on my video right now, that the "suggested video" traffic will decline more when the analytics updates in a few hours.
My question deals specifically with the "suggested video" traffic, and not how to get more views. I know a good deal about that; however, my question is specifically if there is a way for the user of a video to get YouTube to suggest your video more often, or no.
I know that they are making a HUGE push for "watch-time" verses "video views" now, and my huge minutes watched count keep the "suggested video" traffic at least level. I completely understand that the videos where I am getting this traffic from could be decreasing in the rate of increasing cumulative views. That could play a part, but that is speculative, and might be pre-mature to make that case.
Anyway, I am wondering if there is any way I can possible increase the "suggested video" traffic?
