FAQs

How does the chart work?

If millions of viewers are repeatedly watching videos from a YouTube channel, you can bet it’s on the charts. Screenchart! ranks the most watched channels of the week. The No.1 slot is reserved for the top channel that was the most viewed channel during the past last 7 days! All positions on the chart are ranked in descending order according to their total weekly video views.

Some channel positions doesn't look right. Why is that?

Viewer's interest changes all the time. Since the countdown is based on viewership and not by subscription, a channel position on the charts may shift slightly or drastically week to week. Factors for this change may include, but not limited to the following; a viral or sensational video, a sudden surge or loss of subscribers, a channel lack of impressions or activity.

Where does this information come from?

Channel's statistics are pulled from YouTube's public API. Data is also retrieved from third-party statistical websites and in house manual counting is done on some channels.
