India Was Positively Obsessed with YouTube Last Month: Top YouTube Channels November 2018

Out of all 100 creators, three of them increased rankings by at least 100 positions, with +340 being the highest jump in ranking across these creators. Just like in October, for example, we saw the children’s programming channel Cocomelon sticking around its #2 spot with almost 2 billion views and the highest V30 of November’s top 100 creators at 48.8 million (this shouldn’t be a surprise, considering children tend to watch lots of YouTube videos, and many times repeatedly). But the most interesting thing to happen last month on the YouTube chart was the increasing presence of Indian-based channels and creators across not just the top ten, but also the top 100! Additionally, YouTube said its viewership in India grew 1.8x over the last two years, and noted that the country’s users are more engaged than other parts of the world (65% subscribe to channels, and 7 out of 10 watch ads with sound on, for example). SET India, the Sony Entertainment Television branch in that country, is a familiar face to our monthly YouTube leaderboard and landed at #3 in November thanks to nearly 1.4 billion views. As for the India-based channel with the biggest rank change in November, that honor goes to Goldmines, a Hindi movies channel with a +31 position increase to land for the first time in the top 100 at #92! International channels also claimed some of the most impressive stats from November’s YouTube leaderboard. Take Mexico’s digital-first Badabun entertainment network as an example; it landed at #9 after jumping 12 whole spots and boasted this month’s highest ER30 at 3.1x, three times the regular baseline engagement rate!

Autumn is officially over, and now November’s YouTube leaderboard is here to round out the season’s final insights into the video strategies of some of the world’s top creators. In November, the top YouTube channels pulled in roughly 11.2 billion views across the ten leading positions. Four of these channels also maintained their same positions from October, and three of them had those exact same spots back in September, too! These are just a few more of the accomplishments we saw on November’s YouTube leaderboard across the 100 most-viewed channels and creators:

  • The top three channels saw at least 1 billion views each, with the top performer garnering over 2.4 billion views alone.
  • The top four channels all maintained their same ranks from October.
  • The highest average 30-day engagement rate (ER30) of the top ten channels hit 3.1x, while the highest ER30 of the top 100 publishers hitting an impressive 6.8x!
  • The best 30-day average (V30) from the top ten channels was a whopping 48.8 million, which also happened to be the best overall V30 across the top 100 channels.
  • Out of all 100 creators, three of them increased rankings by at least 100 positions, with +340 being the highest jump in ranking across these creators.

We also saw in this month’s top ten the WWE, whose wrestling-based videos engage people around the world to the point where the channel earned a 1.5x ER30. But the most interesting thing to happen last month on the YouTube chart was the increasing presence of Indian-based channels and creators across not just the top ten, but also the top 100!
