Why Can’t I See My Uploaded Video On My YouTube Channel?

Videos won’t show on the homepage? Don’t worry I’ve got a simple solution for you.

I can’t tell you how many times I watch a video and I’m like, “That was really good content. I want to go check out their YouTube channel.” When I get there I see that it says, “This channel doesn’t have any content.” However, I just watch one of their videos. So how could they not have any content? Well, they really do, if I click on “videos” I can see, “Oh, there is a video here but it’s not showing on their homepage.” Why is that? I can see this video here.

First, what I want you to do is actually test your channel. Then I’m going to show you to fix it. And the way you test your channel is you make sure that you’re in your homepage on YouTube. You’ll see this, “View as yourself,” and you want to click on “new visitor.” If it’s empty that means anytime somebody goes to your YouTube channel, they don’t know that you have any videos and more than likely they’re leaving unless they know to click on the video.

The way you fix that is going back to your homepage. Right here. See this option that says, “Add a selection.” We need to actually add content and we need to add videos. I recommend doing uploads. I like to do it horizontally and now it’s gone ahead and added this upload. So, now I can go back and test new visitors, will they see videos? Yes. They will now see videos. The other thing I recommend doing is that not only do you have uploads but also create playlist and plug playlist in. So right down here it says, “Add new content.” I gotta scroll down. Under content what I want you to do is look for “playlist,” and I like to do multiple. I like to do vertical. I have one doing horizontal, one doing the other one. Go ahead and save it. Right now I do not have any playlist. However, once I start creating playlist for this channel, it will actually show up here and this is how you make sure that when a new visitor comes to your YouTube channel, they can actually see that you have content. If you have any questions, comments or thoughts I would love to hear about it. What did you find with your channel? Was it working or was it not working?

Alright, everybody. Take care. Be sure to leave a comment below.
