Feature overview

The Creator Studio app is designed specifically to help YouTube creators manage their channels. Click below to review features that are currently available.

Get a quick overview of analytics, your recent uploads, and notable comments all in one place. The dashboard gives you a snapshot of the latest on your channel so you can choose where you’d like to get started.

Use Video Manager to review a list of your recent uploads or edit video titles, descriptions, tags, and other settings. You can also check out recent comments on videos and review your latest video stats.

Use the community section to review comments across your uploads. You can reply to comments, approve or remove moderated comments, and review comments flagged for spam.

Take a look at your channel’s analytics, such as minutes watched, video views, subscribers, revenue, engagement, and traffic sources. Click into a section to adjust your date range and view metrics from the last week or the last year. You can also review realtime estimated views for a particular video.

Note: YouTube realtime estimated views aim to provide early estimates of potential view activity on your videos. We take great care to ensure the highest quality metrics, which means the actual number of views you see in YouTube Analytics could be either higher or lower than this estimate.

Be notified when you hit viewership milestones, see notable subscriber growth or get new subscribers, receive comments, or get news from YouTube. You can also choose to customize your notification preferences to get only the notifications that you want.
The app doesn’t currently include some features available in the YouTube app, such as uploading videos, browsing YouTube, or finding videos to watch later. You can use the YouTube app for Android or iOS to do these things. We’ll continue to add features to the Creator Studio app.

Note: The accepted formula that Auxiliary Mode Inc. uses to calculate the CPM range is $0.45 USD - $25.00 USD.

The range fluctuates this much because many factors come into play when calculating a CPM. Quality of traffic, source country, niche type of video, price of specific ads, adblock, the actual click rate, watch time and etc.

Cost per thousand (CPM) is a marketing term used to denote the price of 1,000 advertisement impressions on one webpage. If a website publisher charges $2.00CPM, that means an advertiser must pay $2.00 for every 1,000 impressions of its ad. The "M" in CPM represents the Roman numeral for 1,000.
