Vidmeter is a site I’ve found useful lately as the best way to find good/hot videos on the web as it tracks videos across all the major video sites and shows interesting data about them as well.
They’ve taken it one step further and now have a free service called Vidmeter Tracker that allows anyone to track their own videos or videos that they’re interested in and see statistics on these videos across 23 different video sites.
It works by entering in the URL of where the video is located on the various video sites, and then Tracker starts compiling data for you and updating it daily. You can get the data by logging in to Tracker, subscribing to an RSS feed for the video’s stats, or having it email you and your colleagues email reports.
What does it track?
- All-time views and comments combined
- All-time views and comments on each video site
- Graph and chart of traffic trends for the last 20 days
- Shows the video in a flash player within their interface

- Google Video

- Kill Some Time
- Live Video
What’s also really cool about Tracker is that you don’t have to be the person who submitted the video to the video sites. So it’s a great way to track videos of your competition or just track videos you may be interested in to see how much traffic they’re getting and from where.
Overall, Tracker is very easy to use and well done. It feels like a surefire winner to me for all the new video content producers to have their own version of web analytics. Let the Video Analytics era begin.
