YouTube | Subscriber Count

UPDATE - As of September 2019, YouTube has changed the way it reports on subscriber counts via the API and public placements on the website. The subscriber count will appear "abbreviated." Read more about this update here.

Here are a few examples:

  • If a channel has 4,227 subscribers, the public subscriber count will read “4.2k” until the channel reaches 4,300.
  • If a channel has 133,017 subscribers, the public subscriber count will read “133K” until the channel reaches 134,000.
  • If a channel has 51,389,232, the public subscriber count will read “51M” until the channel reaches 52,000,000.

Below are the fields that Alight Analytics considers standard for YouTube Subscriber Count dataset. Data for this dataset is pulled on a two day lag, meaning that your subscribers for Monday will be available on Wednesday.
