If you know a thing or two about YouTube, you know what subscribers are and how they are important for content creators. If you are a YouTube content creator yourself you know very well how the number of subscribers impact your work.
Subscribers are a blessing for YouTubers. Getting your 1000th subscriber is the first milestone in anyone’s YouTube career, as it sets you up for a brighter future on YouTube.
Seeing a new subscriber added to your subscriber’s list is one of the best feelings in the world. In case you are facing difficulty finding the subscriber’s list, we are here to help you locate it.
In this article we will be talking about how to view your subscriber’s list on YouTube, which subscribers can be viewed, which cannot be, and whether you can actually view the entire list of your subscribers or not.
If that sounds interesting to you, let’s jump right into this article!
How to See Recent Subscribers
If you are an active YouTube content creator, you should have already noticed that, every time a new subscriber subscribes to your channel, you get a notification. In case you haven’t checked it, go to the notification option on your YouTube app and see it for yourself.
In case you don’t find any subscriber notification there, it means that you haven’t gained any new subscribers recently. This can be viewed from both desktop and mobile versions of YouTube unlike what we will be talking about in the next segment.
How to See Your Subscribers on YouTube
In the mobile version, specifically, you can view the number of subscribers you have. Unfortunately, you cannot view the list of subscribers from the mobile version of YouTube. However, that does not necessarily mean that you cannot view it from your phone.
The thing about viewing the subscribers list is that you need the desktop version of YouTube. What this means is that the version of YouTube needs to be the desktop one, not necessarily the device itself.
You can just go on to your web browser and open YouTube in desktop mode. We recommend using Google Chrome browser for this. Once that’s out of the way, we can now move on to actually viewing the list of subscribers.
One more thing you need to keep in mind is that you won’t exactly be able to see ALL your subscribers in that list. Note that you can only view the top hundred most recent subscribers of your channel on that list.
Now for the actual steps to view the list:
- Open YouTube from your browser on desktop mode.
- Login to your account and locate “Your channel”
- In the menu bar you will find a button called “YouTube Studio (Beta)”
- You will find the dashboard of YouTube Studio; look for a card that says recent subscribers and view that page. You will find the top 100 subscribers with their profile’s names on that list.
Subscribers That Are Shown
As we have just mentioned, only the subscribers who have subscribed very recently are shown on the list of subscribers in your channel. Now how recent is considered as recent?
If your channel does not have much growth, and you are pretty much stuck at your first 100 subscribers only, then you will see those 100 subscribers until you make any more progress.
Assuming you are not having that bad of an experience on YouTube, and your subscriber count is higher than that, you will see the list change after any increase in the number of subscribers.
In which case, you will see the list of the subscribers who have subscribed in the last 28 days. This is the margin time of being shown in the list of subscribers. After 28 days, if there is an increase in the number of subscribers, for example, you gain 100 new subscribers in those 28 days, you will see a brand new list of subscribers.
Subscribers That Are Not Shown
So here’s a catch. Not all subscribers can be viewed. These subscribers may have been added in the past 28 days, but you might not be able to view their names or profiles.
This is because they have chosen to keep their subscriptions private. You are only allowed to see the names of the subscribers that keep their subscription public.
So in case a few of your recent subscribers are not viewed in the top 100 list, this may be the reason. There are no reasons to be upset about this though. They may not be viewable, but they are your subscribers!
Another reason you may not be able to view a subscriber is because their account may have been suspended for some reason and/or identified as spam. Again, this is none of your concerns, as they still remain in your subscriber count.
The bummer about being able to view only the top hundred subscribers is that, when you reach higher levels of success on YouTube, for example, you hit 100,000 or 1M subscribers, but you won’t be able to view all of those subscribers. All you will see is your subscriber count and the list of top 100 recent subscribers.
So that’s about it about viewing the subscriber’s list. While it is a little disappointing that you can’t view the full list of subscribers on your channel, at least you get to view the top 100 ones.
We hope our explanation of how to see your subscribers on YouTube was helpful and you were able to locate your subscriber’s list.
We wish you all the best in the journey of making content and reason greater heights in terms of growing your audience so that the recent 100 subscriber’s list keeps being updated every day if not every week/month.
We hope you enjoyed reading this article, have a nice day!
