YouTube is so all-powerful, it’s crazy. Because it has such a bonkers big global audience it can serve ‘related videos’ to millions of viewers, and the other online video sites don’t stand a bloody chance.
I’m not really complaining, I love the fact my YouTube vids have had 794,900 total views, but I put a lot of effort into promoting my Bicycle Anatomy video on Vimeo.com yet it’s now been overtaken by the same video placed on YouTube at a later date and given zero link love.
Bicycle Anatomy for Beginners from Quickrelease.tv on Vimeo.
That’s the Vimeo version. It’s hi-res, it can be downloaded in different formats, it players better in the full-screen format. It has been embedded by a whole host of big sites, such as Commutebybike.com, BikeBiz.com, Bikeforall.net, Bicycleretailer.com and Roadbikerider.com.
But despite all this, the ruddy YouTube version has had 8061 views and rising. The hyper-linked Vimeo version has had 7314 total views.
