By the Numbers: 120+ Amazing YouTube Statistics

YouTube statisticsThis YouTube stat post is an offshoot of our original Google post. The original post for all Google stats was getting a bit cumbersome and tough to navigate as it neared 100 stats. Hopefully, this new format will help you find the stat you are looking for much quicker.

Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. A few of these stats come from YouTube/Google’s own reports, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100% accurate.
