The secret of YouTube popularity lies in its extensive features and its flexibility that provide users a memorable experience. Few YouTube competitors have grown over the years, but it is very tough for other video sharing platforms to beat YouTube down. Once there was buzz that YouTube would face serious competition from its competitors but it’s hard to dethrone YouTube from being the top video sharing platform. Because of its user friendly interface and various features YouTube still remains the king of online video sharing platform.
1. YouTube Content Id is Booming System to Prevent Fraudulent Content:
Content Id is a system for arresting fraudulent activities in YouTube. Video owners can use this system to manage and identify the content on the site quickly. Video owners can choose from a number of options for treating infringement to keeping control over the blocking or muting the video.
YouTube is currently the only site having this feature. YouTube spent lots of time in developing Content Id system. With YouTube’s Content Id system forged contents can be detected automatically.
2. YouTube Videos can be Monetized:
On YouTube anyone can monetize a video, even your neighbor can monetize your video. In other video sharing platform the video publisher who has signed a deal with the site or the person who will share the revenue of the video they only have the right to monetize their video. And in some others this monetization feature is missing.

4. YouTube Videos Views are More Genuine and Real:
You can have faith on YouTube videos with million views because they are considered as being more real, engaged viewers. YouTube doesn’t count a view as a view until the video is watched for 30 seconds. Whereas other sites like Facebook, Instagram count a view of a video after 3 seconds and Twitter even count it as view immediately on click.
Three seconds are not enough to consider a view as a view. It might be just a click by mistake as well. This aberration happens especially when a video is auto playing and the viewer even not aware of the fact that they are watching a video that already gained a view even it is observed for merest seconds.
5. Google Search Results Shows YouTube Video First:
What results you will find if you search for your favorite videos in Google? All the top results are from Youtube on Google. Videos shared on other sites lags far behind from YouTube in results. To get results from other sites you need to be very unique to show videos outside YouTube at the top of the results page in search.
In the past 2/3 years other than YouTube sites like Instagram, Snapchat, and Pinterest emerged as the video sharing platform. But it will be difficult for rivals to dethrone YouTube from its position, mainly due to YouTube features which its creators have worked so hard to develop. In the near future, it will be a momentous task for its rival to bring down YouTube from its current position in the online video paradigm.
