Is it Good to Hide Subscribers on YouTube?
I recommend people to leave their subscriber count visible
because typically, when you find an excellent video on YouTube, with the channel having few subscribers, a lot of the comments are people saying,
“Hey, this video is amazing. You deserve so many more subs.”
I also think people like finding underrated or undiscovered YouTubers.
So I recommend keeping your YouTube subscriber count checks so people can see how many subscribers you have.
Should I hide my subscriber count on YouTube?
Honestly, when it comes down to it, I think there are two sides.
I think some people are scared that if they show their amount of subscribers and it’s really low when people watch their videos, they’re not going to want to subscribe just because they don’t have a lot of subscribers.
I don’t think this is true, I think people are going to subscribe no matter how many subscribers you have if your videos are good enough.
So don’t focus on the number of subscribers, and remember that people will hit that subscribe button based on if they enjoy your YouTube videos.
Will YouTube Punish Me for Hiding Subscriber Count?
You might be wondering if the YouTube algorithm punishes you or favors you
for having this subscriber feature turned on or off?
The answer is that it’s going to do neither of those things.You will not be punished for hiding subscriber count.
