Hi Fiora! The best YouTube category to use for your videos depends on the type of content you create and the audience you want to reach. YouTube currently has 16 primary categories for videos, each with its own subcategories. Here is a brief overview of the primary categories:

  1. Film & Animation
  2. Autos & Vehicles
  3. Music
  4. Pets & Animals
  5. Sports
  6. Travel & Events
  7. Gaming
  8. People & Blogs
  9. Comedy
  10. Entertainment
  11. News & Politics
  12. Howto & Style
  13. Education
  14. Science & Technology
  15. Nonprofits & Activism
  16. Shows

Consider the topic of your videos and the audience you want to reach. For example, if you create educational content, you may want to choose the “Education” category. If you create travel vlogs, the “Travel & Events” category may be a good fit. If you create comedy sketches, the “Comedy” category would be appropriate.

It’s worth noting that you can choose up to two categories for each of your videos, so don’t be afraid to experiment and see what works best for your content and audience. Additionally, consider creating a consistent theme or niche for your channel to help attract a dedicated audience.

Ultimately, the most important thing is to create high-quality content that engages your viewers and keeps them coming back for more.
