      Hola todos!
      I have a YouTube channel and I am researching the importance of video categories on YouTube.
      I have read many sources, but I have not come to an accurate conclusion regarding the category of videos on YouTube. Does this matter?

      Hi Sitanin! The category of your YouTube videos can definitely impact your channel’s visibility and success on the platform.

      When you upload a video to YouTube, you have the option to choose a category for your video. This helps YouTube understand what your video is about and can help it recommend your video to people who are interested in that category.

      Choosing the right category for your video can help it reach the right audience and increase your chances of being discovered by new viewers. For example, if you create cooking videos, choosing the “Food & Drink” category can help your videos appear in search results and recommendations for people who are interested in food and cooking.

      In addition to choosing a category for your individual videos, it’s also important to consider the overall category or niche of your channel. Having a clear niche or category for your channel can help you attract a dedicated audience and stand out from other channels on the platform.

      That being said, while choosing the right category for your videos can be helpful for discoverability, it’s not the only factor that determines your success on YouTube. Other factors, such as the quality of your content, your consistency in uploading videos, and your engagement with your audience, are also important.

      I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
