“According to a recent comScore study, 178 million Americans — or more than 50% of the population — watched 33 billion online videos in February, 2013. That’s nearly 200 videos each in a single month. ComScore says 150 million of those viewers accessed videos through a Google site (which basically means YouTube).

Here are five key analytics that Hayes says can help you learn what you’re doing right, and fix what’s going wrong.” More>>>Share
