Over the past few months, I’ve managed to increase the Subscriber to View ratio on my Gaming Channel by over 110%.
In this article, I’ll reveal my strategy in depth, so you can increase your view to Subscriber ratio easily.
What is Subscriber to View Ratio?
The subscriber to View Ratio sometimes referred to as View to Subscriber Ratio is the number of views your video(s) get from viewers Subscribed to your Channel versus viewers not Subscribed.
For you to know how to increase it, you have to know how to find it and know whether they need improvements.
What is a Good Subscriber to View Ratio?
A Good Subscriber to View Ratio should be around 10% for educational and informational content but for Entertainment Videos, a good view to Subscriber ratio should be higher than 20%.
Generally, the higher the better, you should look to keep improving or at least maintaining your ratio.

To Check your Channel’s View to Subscriber ratio, you have to:
- Login to YouTube Studio.

Increasing your Channel’s View to Subscriber Ratio by over 110%
To get such massive results, your new videos need to get higher Subscriber to View Ratios individually, once you start getting big numbers on your new videos, they’ll increase your overall Channel Ratio.
Stick to a Niche
The first and most reasonable reason why your View to Subscriber ratio is low is because of how you treat your channel.
It all comes down to your niche and how you connect with your audience, you can’t start a YouTube Channel and start dumping random videos like I used to do back in the day.
The most valuable lesson on how to Increase your View to Subscriber Ratio is to stick to your niche because of you decide to change or switch niches, your Subscribers will start seeing content they aren’t interested in.
If your Subscribers see content that they aren’t in, they won’t watch the video, thus, impacting your View to Subscriber Ratio negatively.
In the case that you’ve already swapped your niche and started with a new niche, you shouldn’t take down those videos as they may be bringing in views, what you wanna do is to keep uploading videos consistently and be patient.
Higher Content Quality
By all means, if your content is of high quality, you should be getting a lot of Subscribers, Content Quality should be your top priority if you want to grow your YouTube Channel.
However, not all your videos will do well on YouTube (in this case, have a high Subscriber to View Ratio), you should use YouTube Studio to find out which of your content(s) have a high Subscriber to View Ratio(s) and then use them as a standard you need to meet.
As a bonus, here is my Recommended YouTube Equipment for Beginners which will help you level up your Content Quality and save you hours on content creation.
Whenever you ask your viewers to Subscribe, ask them to also click on the notification icon, so they can get your latest videos.
These days, the YouTube Algorithm doesn’t even require viewers to click on the notification Bell before they’ll get new video alerts, if you engage with a creator’s content every week or so, YouTube will start sending you their new content.
So it goes back to creating outstanding content.
The more consistently you upload content on YouTube, the more the Algorithm will deliver your Content In front of your Subscribers.
As far as you’ve leveled up your Content Quality and your new uploads are relevant to your niche, you should start seeing great improvements in your Subscriber to View Ratio.
Your Videos’ Thumbnail Design directly impacts its Click Through Rate, by now you should know that CTR is the number of impressions that result in a click.
Your Thumbnail is the deciding factor in the war between impressions and clicks and if people don’t click on your videos, YouTube will stop promoting them.
Click Through Rate is directly proportional to Subscriber Ratio, this means that the higher your Click Through Rate is, the higher your views to Subscriber Ratio.
So, learn basic graphic design, and never leave your Thumbnail set to default, you can use Tubebuddy, it’ll remind you to add a Thumbnail while you’re uploading new videos.
It’s worth noting that if one of your videos goes viral, the view to Subscriber Ratio may start to drop as a new audience is being introduced to your content by YouTube, do not freak out because it happens till your channel gets millions of Subscribers.
After Reading this article, I hope that by the next couple of months, you should be able to see your Subscriber to View Ratio increase by over 110%.
