YouTube Corrections, How to Add Video Notes For Viewers
This week, we're taking a look at new YouTube Corrections.
YouTube Corrections is a way for you to correct an error on an existing upload or provide an update to information.
This new feature will let YouTube Creators call attention to call attention to corrections in the descriptions of an already published video.
Up until now, if a creator wanted to correct an error in an existing upload or provide an update to information that was no longer accurate, short of editing and re-uploading the video, resulting in loss of engagement metrics and comments, the options were limited to adding a note in the description, responding to comments calling out the error, pinning a comment or doing nothing. With the launch of Corrections, creators will be able to call attention to corrections and clarifications in the descriptions of their already published videos.
When YouTube Corrections are added, viewers will see a card at the time of the error.
The correction will show up one time at that point in the video. There, it will list all of the YouTube Corrections that have been added by a YouTube Creator.
When you click on the card, it will open the notes that a Creator has provided a correction or clarification.
YouTube Corrections is rolling out to eligible creators by the end of June 2022.
Here is a look at how YouTube Corrections work.
Why YouTube Corrections Matters For Your Business?
Previously, if you needed to correct a video, you had to edit the video and then re-upload it. This would lead to the loss of engagement metrics and comments for your YouTube videos.
You could also add a note, pin a comment, respond to comments, or do nothing. This resulted in a lot of lost time responding to comments about a video being outdated.
With YouTube Corrections, now your business can create a video and then when something changes, you can easily add corrections to the video to let viewers know what has changed.
In addition, YouTube Corrections help ensure a video that had already garnered a lot of viewers and engagement, continued to do so, while still providing viewers with relevant, updated information.
At the same time, YouTube Corrections should help reduce the need to create a new version of a video and to start from scratch.
Remember, corrections are rolling out to eligible creators in the coming weeks.
