Important reports / indicators that you should check at least once in 3 days.
Watch time of a Video
The watch time of a video will give an idea that your video is good, the viewer is watching almost the full video. If you find that your video is not watched even 10 percent, then you need to work on the quality of your video.
Other possible reason could be you are getting the wrong viewers. I had made good videos but had got very less watch time. I understood while analysing my video view data. Later I found out the problem. I had promoted the video to wrong audience. If I post a video on gaming to people who are not interested then they would leave the video and even hit the dislike button. So do not be in a hurry to promote your videos and get views, you need to get views from the right audience and the is organic traffic coming from searches. – Focus on YouTube SEO
Likes Vs Dislike
This is a very strong indicator for your channel and you should be very careful. If you are going to get lots of dislikes compared to the likes then your channel ranking will go down and may not rank well in search, suggested videos, etc.
To get more likes, focus on good video, right audience, organic traffic
Keep a watch on top videos. Check the traffic source of these videos.
Watch time from Subscribers
This report will show how much percent of your subscribers are really watching your videos. This is a very important indicator to show how loyal your subscribers are?
If you have got subscribers by paying program or exchange program, none of them would be interested in watching your videos, so get subscriber naturally / organically.

Subscribers Growth / Fall
This is also a very important report that you should watch at least once in every 15 days. You will know how many new subscribers joined for the period. It will show a green or red indicator so that you can work accordingly.
Number of Views
Number of views for the entire channel as well as particular channel, This will show how each and every video is performing. You can understand the performance of each and every video. You should compare every video views, view minutes every previous month.
Playlists are again a good source of traffic for every channel. Create good meaningful playlists so that others like those playlists and you get good views. There are good number of reports inside the YouTube Analytics to help new YouTubers understand performance and work accordingly.
Audience – Important to negotiate with Advertisers / Sponsors
Type of Audiences that your channel has are a very important information. Demography helps in tuning your future videos and products. Even this would help you in negotiating with advertisers for sponsorship videos and product reviews.
Suppose you have 1000 viewers of the age group between 25-35 and 75% of them are female. Guess what, you can promote any product that is targeted to this demography.
Understand how you are getting your viewers. How did your viewer discover your channel?
