Has Lady Colin Campbell blundered and lost YouTube viewers due to talking too much about US politics and Afghanistan?

At the time of posting the linked video has under 100,000 viewers and it got the number of viewings it has received at a much slower pace than usual . Those figures are low in comparison with her usual numbers. It seems to me that the more she started to talk about US politics, world affairs and specifically Afghanistan and the withdrawal the more her viewing figures for her YouTube videos have stagnated, slowed and fallen. Lots of angry and frustrated comments and questions from some viewers in the past week. I can't help but feel Lady Colin Campbell may have blundered and taken a misstep talking too much and giving too many opinions on non royal topics and it's alienated or even upset some viewers.

I could be wrong but it seems there has been a noticeable trend in recent weeks the more she talked about US politics.

Of course other factors may be at play and it could be a combination of factors but to me Afghanistan seemed a turning point and catalyst. It might also be that fatigue is setting in and interest is waning in Harry and Meghan as a topic of discussion with the public especially in terms of watch online video discussions about them. It could also in part be connected to the bank holiday weekend here in the UK but a sizeable amount of her viewers are global and not introduce the UK. She seems to have many American, Australian and Canadian viewers too. So I remain to be persuaded that could be a big part of the explanation.

If waning interest in the royal duo is a main driver of the fall then maybe Lady Colin Campbells YouTube channel has peaked until there's a dramatic gamechanger like a divorce?

I like Lady Colin Campbell and her videos, I don't agree with everything she says but I do find her engaging and entertaining. I hope her channel recovers and its just a storm in a teacup or a blip. Time will tell.

Also a few videos back there was an incident were her mobile phone kept on ringing or making notification noises. She ended up standing up and removing the phone and silencing it but she or someone off cameras, it was hard to tell muttered for fucks sake! It definitely jarred with her image and may have surprised some viewers . I was shocked it wasn't caught and edited out. That may have upset some viewers but I doubt in significant enough numbers to cause a major fall in numbers but maybe. I think she may have either peaked and or blundered and offended a chunk of viewers by getting too much into politics especially americans.

Once Harry and Meghan started selling themselves as geopolitical experts who have important opinions on Afghanistan, it was just inevitable she would try to pretend she was too.

She hates them, but at some level she also wants to BE them.

Sorry but don't all the Megbots claim that everyone only hates Smugs because they're racist republicans?

Why would Lady C criticising Biden alienate them?

Also, youtube viewer counts are notoriously imprecise. The company famously throttles videos they don't like by failing to recommend it, and by cutting subscriber numbers in half out of the blue. Same with viewing figures. It could well be that youtube itself doesn't like this video. There's no certain way to tell. That's why a bunch of youtubers are lodging a class action suit against youtube (I don't have the link but I'll have a look round.

So, using viewing figures is not a great way to guage viewership with a normally popular youtuber. Best thing to do to truly figure out if something is unpopular is to scan the comments and read - and count - those.

I'm not certain what OP means: 100,000 views of a single video on a channel with 129,000 subscribers total is a fantastic showing.

8000 likes vs 168 dislikes is an out-of-this-world ratio, and

3000+ comments below is again, an excellent showing.

Any youtuber would be over the moon with those numbers.

What's the problem?

r6 The numbers for many of her other videos are much higher eg closer to 200,000 upwards. Her channell isnt in danger of withering or not being profitable just yet but she does get plenty of viewers from people who dont subscribe .Who knows maybe even some links on Datalounge have upped her views?!

by Anonymousreply 7September 1, 2021 4:45 AM

Really? My LORD I had no idea she was that viral that regularly, r7.

To average 200,000 views on a channel with 129,000 subscribers is quite something in YouTube world.

And yes, r7. when you get a significantly higher number of views than you get of actual subscribers, it usually indicates that the indivual video has gone viral - usually on twitter. This is because people on twitter ( or facebook, or even the DL) can just press play within the social media platform it was reposted on, without the viewer ever having to go to youtube itself (the only way to subscribe to the channel is to go to youtube and press subscribe).

I realize people are sick of Harry and Meghan and need her to discuss sonething else, but politics is the wrong way to go.

I bet gender non-binary types would actually be fascinated to hear her beauty tips and her tales of becoming Lady Colin Camopbell. if anyone has worked harder at fighting the roles she was assigned at birth, it is she. She may have been born into the role of a common non-British boy, but she was damned if she was not going to become an actual British Lady, come hell or high water! Who else has that kind of story to trade on?

by Anonymousreply 9September 1, 2021 4:54 AM

I think she's the only one whose commentary ranges outside of the specific topic of the Harkles / BRF. You never see River or PDina wandering off, topically.

Probably because she's older, she's rich, and she's generally opinionated about lots of things.

I still love her (although I can only say that because I put her vids on 1.25x speed!)

by Anonymousreply 10September 1, 2021 4:58 AM

r10 river has wondered off a little bit saying comedy is in trouble because of puritanism etc

r8 She has a twitter account but only posts a link to her Youtube posts with little fanfare so it must be fans or her media profile that helps her videos go viral?

r9 I wish she would discuss other royals more and not only in relation to the Harkle saga. She knows all of the Queens cousins and their spouses for example .Not saying they are best friends with her but they know each from previous social events etc .I think she could say a lot more about the beautiful Princess Alexandra, The Duchess of Kent and her conversion to the catholic faith for example , The loyal dignity of the Gloucesters etc . There is stuff there she could cover and be really engaging on. Royal watchers are interested in other family members than Harry and Meghan.

[quote] I bet gender non-binary types would actually be fascinated to hear her beauty tips and her tales of becoming Lady Colin Camopbell. if anyone has worked harder at fighting the roles she was assigned at birth, it is she.

I see what you mean there, except her story is closer to that of a trans person: for her there were only ever two sexes, and (when she suddenly had breasts out of nowhere) she realized that her parents had made the wrong the call.

Her grandmother knew what her parents had done at her birth, and that's why the grandmother paid for the small-snip operation required for her outer female organs to be exposed from underneath the fused skin that was covering up her girl bits.

Not easy to get an ultra-traditional Lebanese-Jamaican-British woman born in the 1900's to immediately understand why Lady C needed the surgery so much as to pay for it, but the fact that her grandmother did it with no questions only testifies to how obvious it was by the point that Lady C was in her teens that she was actually a girl.

Read her book about it - her story is a really interesting one, with lots of fascinating characters from different cultures and periods.

She has no post secondary degree, no formal training. She’s not a historian. She writes trash biographies. Is everyone who publishes gossip a “historian?” Her “knowledge base” is gossip and shit she made up.

If she is losing viewers it is because her videos are too long and monotonous, and the novelty (at least among Americans) may be wearing off. She probably noticed an uptick in US subscribers recently for whatever reason.

Try River. Her latest from today is linked below. Her videos have a lightness that Lady C lacks, and are about half the length. I find River enormously funny. She gets it. Lady C doesn't.

Always calling out the Chinese for human rights but not a peep about Putin. Probably owes Puty for getting her the two Russian dolts she calls sons.

Her videos are boring when not tied to a specific Harkle event. Her fury about woke people posing as great a menace as Hitler tells you everything you need to know about her. Her politics are odious. She needs to do fewer videos.

I thought River was a drag queen, not someone who identified as a woman. She looks ridiculous in her thrift shop women's clothes and begging for tips so she can buy more used costume jewelry. She added a huge disclaimer that amounts to "I'm just making this shit up." Her politics are pretty creepy, too.
