How YouTube's Trending Tab Works (YouTube Tips)

Welcome to this series of videos about how YouTube Search and Discovery works.

In this one, we're taking a look at Trending.

The Trending Feed is a list of what videos are new and popular specific to a viewer's country.

Some trends are predictable like a movie trailer or a new song from a popular artist.

But others can be completely surprising.

Trending aims to combine popularity with novelty.

Trending also considers the view count of a video especially the rate of growth in views and where views come from, among other things.

That means the video with the highest daily view count may not necessarily be number 1 on Trending.

Keep in mind that Trending also includes Creator on the Rise and Artist on the Rise where each week, up-and-coming creators and artists are featured for a full day.

There's not a lot that you can do to get your videos to show up on Trending but it does help to make broadly appealing, shareable videos.

If you want to make it "on the rise" it helps to have strong channel growth and momentum.

That's the story on the Trending tab.
