Social Blade have updated their channel pages as YouTube introduces “abbreviation” of their subscriber numbers.

If you want to know the ins and outs of how any channel on YouTube is performing then Social Blade is the site for you. It allows you to search any channel to view how it’s ranks against other channels in subscribers, video views, performance in it’s category on YouTube and much more.

They have just added country rankings so that you can quickly see exactly how a channel compares to the rest of YouTube creators in their country.

For example now we can see that RouteNote and Outertone artist Tobu is the 3rd biggest channel in his home country of Latvia!

This is an excellent new feature that, with just a glance, helps users to quickly view just how well a channel is performing and its popularity. New graphs in the User Summary section at the top of a channel’s Social Blade page give a great overview of their performance in views and subscribers over the past week.

Social Blade have had to change how some statistics are shown due to a recent change in YouTube’s subscriber counts. After a channel reaches 1,000 subscribers YouTube they will “abbreviate” the public subscriber count.

Social Blade spoke on the change and how it affects their counts, writing: “While we’re not happy that YouTube has chosen to go forward with these changes despite the overwhelming opposition from the community we have adapted the site to support them. We want to thank the community for all of their support over the past few months surrounding this issue and to let you know we’re not going anywhere.”
