Interesting Analytics

Postby ricky racer » Tue Jan 25, 2022 2:37 pm

I've got a video posted on YouTube showing my '53 with the 54A Cub Leveling & Grader Blade with it's power angle mounted under the tractor. It's just a short video I posted several years ago. I checked the analytics on it and found an interesting trend. Over the last month it's had over 9600 views. When checking the video analytics I was surprised to see most of the views are coming from India and Pakistan with only a few views coming from the US. In fact 42.2% of the views were from India, 31.8% were from Pakistan and the remaining views, 7% were from the US. I wonder what is driving the interest in India and Pakistan? I highly doubt there are any or many Cubs in those countries. What are your thoughts on the interest in those 2 countries?

Nothing good comes to mind. Maybe something for spam or phishing.

I could not say tractor when I was 2 years old so I called it Err Err.

I loved this tractor then and I still love it now.

Maybe those folks there are just looking at something that they don't have over there.
And they are curious about different type of tractors.
Just guessing.

Have you gotten any calls telling you that your extended warranty on the Cub is about to expire? :lol:

:lol:

Didn’t somebody say when the factory shut down the tooling was sold off overseas? Or maybe I’m thinking about something else? That would be wild if Mahindra or some other company over there built a run of Cubs by another name that somehow we just never heard about on this side of the world.

More seriously, they are probably just looking to squeeze every bit of utility they can out of whatever little tractors they have running around over there, and they recognize a good idea they can adapt when they see it. :tractor:
No idea why the interest is focused there, though. Everyone should love it!

Definitely a warning video. Those crazy people live in places that require massive tractors to manage the mountains of snow.

I would guess that either your video got shared on a popular forum over there or was linked to in a Facebook group with a large south-Asian membership.

Ricky,
Here are two other possible explanations of why there are so many hits to your YouTube coming from India and Pakistan. 1) There is money to be made from the posting of a popular video and you, as the content creator, should be a primary beneficiary. However, there are multiple layers of "interested parties" to the royalties. One (or more) of these parties have randomly picked your video as a target and given it to 'bot farms in India and Pakistan to fatten up the number of hits in order to bolster royalties.
2) Another explanation is that your video has certain qualities: brief, good photography, clear script, well articulated...etc. These qualities may have made the video a good candidate as a training video for "schools" that teach how to be a English speaking rep for some tech help line. Your videos popularity isn't due to the Cub or the grader blade, it's about how to talk clearly about mechanical issues - a valuable skill. Congratulations.

Valuable and much needed skill when you phone the 1-800 call center number in India to order a part for your clothes dryer.
I have an excuse. CRS.
