I’ve talked before about how using Trending topics as ways to spark YouTube video ideas and blog post ideas BUT how in the world do you find out what’s trending?!
How to find out what’s trending on YouTube
There are several ways to see what is trending on YouTube specifically with the YouTube homepage, trending page and other third-party tools, so, let’s get to it
1. First and foremost, check the YouTube trending page. On the left-hand side of your YouTube homepage is a button that says “trending”, click that and be taken away to the trending section of YouTube.
Note: You can’t filter this by category and it tends to be very pop culture heavy.
2. VIDIQ. VidIQ offers a “most viewed” tool within their chrome extension (for free) to be able to see what’s being viewed the most by category.
3. TubeBuddy. Just like VidIQ, TubeBuddy has a tool within their extension for you to see what’s trending based on categories.
