Introducing the YouTube Module for GA Data Grabber

When we ask GA Data Grabber users which new data source they’d most like to see added to the tool, YouTube has consistently been one of the top answers. We’ve heard your wishes and have now added a YouTube Module. This new module lets you fetch statistics for any number of YouTube channels and videos into one report, so you can easily monitor all your YouTube activity. As with all GA Data Grabber modules, reports can be created very flexibly: you can freely choose which metrics to include, and how to split the data. Metrics you can get include:
  • Video views
  • Unique viewers
  • Time viewed
  • Average % of video viewed
  • Subscriptions to your channel
  • Likes
  • Favorites
  • Shares

You can get the total figures, or split by time, country, gender, age, traffic source, or playback location. Compared to using YouTube Analytics, GA Data Grabber offers many benefits, mainly:
  • Getting metrics for many channels in one place
  • Seeing the developments for many videos simultaneously
  • Automatic calculation of how the metrics have changed compared to the previous period of same length, or the same period a year earlier
  • Combining the data with other data sources available in GA Data Grabber, such as your site statistics from Google Analytics and your Facebook page metrics
  • Having all the data in Excel, where you can add your own charts and calculations
  • One-click PowerPoint report creation

As with all GA Data Grabber modules, the YouTube Module has a free 14 day trial with full functionality. You can get it here. In addition to GA Data Grabber, you can also fetch YouTube data into Excel and Google Docs using our AutomateAnalytics Functions.
