    Can I run tests before I publish my video?

    Yes, all Thumblytics tests are run externally to YouTube and can be run whenever you choose. Testing your thumbnail or title before you publish allows you to capture more of the initial spike in views that often comes in the hours immediately after publishing.

    Can I target certain demographics or respondents in my tests?

    Our respondents come from a range of countries and age groups, we do not currently support demographic targeting. In fact, we generally recommend casting a wide net when running tests, because you want to expand your reach and YouTube is likely to show your video beyond your initial target audience.

    Does using Thumblytics put my videos/channel at risk?

    All Thumblytics tests are run externally to YouTube and do not negatively impact your channel or videos. We gather, process, and present you with the information you need to make better decisions with your thumbnails and titles so that your videos organically perform better!

    How can Thumblytics help me take advantage of the YouTube algorithm?

    Whether your video is recommended by YouTube is influenced by a range of factors. Of the factors that you can impact, the two largest are: (i) CTR (Click-through Rate), and (ii) AVD (Average View Duration). CTR can be thought of as the proportion of people who click your video after seeing it. Thumblytics helps you run quick and easy surveys to help you choose the thumbnail and title with the highest CTR for your video.

    How long does it take to run a test?

    The more responses you are trying to collect, the longer the test will take. Most tests take just a few hours to run. However, this can vary slightly depending on the time you run your experiment (e.g. turnaround time may be longer on weekends as fewer respondents are online).
