YouTube Changes Its Search Ranking Algorithm To Focus On Engagement, Not Just Clicks
YouTube just announced that it is changing its search ranking algorithm to highlight videos that keep viewers engaged. The idea here, says YouTube, is to “reward engaging videos that keep viewers watching.” Because of this change, YouTube expects that the time viewers spent watching videos from search will increase in the near future.
YouTube Search: Now Optimized For Time Watched
Today’s announcement doesn’t come as a total surprise. Earlier this year, the company already explained its focus on ‘watch time.” When it updated its suggested videos algorithm, YouTube noted that it did so to “better surface the videos that viewers actually watch, over those that they click on and then abandon.”
Previous to this, smart video producers had noticed that YouTube would reward clicks more than actual views, so they would ensure that their video thumbnails were as provocative as possible. YouTube, however, is obviously more interested in getting its users to engage with videos (and ads).
This search ranking change also comes just a day after the company announced that it would add data like time watched to YouTube Analytics. Thanks to this, the YouTube team noted today, video producers “have even more tools to evaluate the performance of [their] videos and channel.”
A 34 years old man, the CEO of a company in Takamtsu, was arrested by the Tokyo Airport Police for sneaking shot of a stewardesses in a flying plane, but he was released without indictment, reported on Ocotber 12th.
From the witnesses, the police confirmed that he took a sneaking photograph over the Hyogo prefecture's sky, and arrested him on suspicion of the prefecture's Anti-Nuisance Ordinance. However, the Tokyo District Public Prosecutors Office judged that they did not have enough conviction to specify where the crime happened.
In the morning on September 9th, the man was grabbed because of taking inside of a stewardess's skirt with a spy cam attached to a ball-painted pen in the flying Japan Airline's plane .
He confessed to the clime, and many sneaking pictures were found from his computer.
Usually each Anti-Nuisance Ordinance is applied for sneaking shot's exposure, but planes travel around some prefectures at very high speed so that it is difficult to identify where the incident has happened.
There has been no example of arresting during flight so far.
A French telephone company sent a whacking phone bill, approximately 6,000 times of the country's GDP, to their client by mistake. An information operator had not admitted the client's inquiry for a while.
Solenne San Jose, who lives in Pessac located in the southern east part of France, received the bill from the company Bouygues, and could not believe her eyes because of the amount.
The bill showed 11,721,000,000,000,000, (11 quadrillion 721 billion EUR).
The correct amount was 117.21 EUR.
