Combining YouTube Analytics with Google Analytics for Better Video Marketing

Online video offers businesses and marketers a powerful way to promote their brand, connect with their audience, drive traffic, and to get their message (or product) out in a memorable way.
But how can you learn more about who’s watching to determine the value these videos, and these users, are providing your business?
To answer these questions, Google Analytics offers multiple reports to show how many users are coming to your site via YouTube, where they’re going once there, how well they engage with your site, and how many ultimately convert. Meanwhile, YouTube’s own analytics reporting offers valuable insights about exactly who is consuming your video content.
In this post, we’ll take a look at how to analyze YouTube traffic in both Google Analytics and YouTube, as well how the two work together for even better insights.
