An algorithm in a nutshell is a set of instructions designed to perform a specific task. This can be a simple process, such as multiplying two numbers, or a complex operation, such as serving the most relevant, personalized recommendations to you on YouTube!
To do this, algorithms analyze users’ activity history and find hundreds of videos that could be relevant to them. Then, they rank these videos based on:
likes, shares, comments and watch time
how well each video has engaged and satisfied similar users;
how often each viewer watches videos from each channel or other videos surrounding the same topic, and;
how many times YouTube has already shown each video to users.
