    Preliminary information

    Prima di enter the dettaglio della procedura su how to hide subscribers on youtube, it seems important to explain to you what carrying out this operation entails.

    Well, hiding the number of subscribers to your YouTube channel and therefore not making the vision public could prove useful in case you have a high number of views and few subscribers. In fact, this technique is mainly used by channels that want to make the public believe that they are bigger than they are.

    Let's take a practical example: Pinco uploaded 10 videos, one of which was viewed by 2 million people and nine barely have 1.000 views. Probably the Pinco channel will have few subscribers compared to the total views and the public could therefore decide not to subscribe, evaluating this "discrepancy" as a sign that, on average, the content posted on the channel is probably less interesting than the video it has. made 2 million views. If the number of subscribers is not shown publicly, it is clear that the channel is famous for the 2 million views of the “famous” video and therefore there is a tendency to subscribe to it more easily.

    Of course, this technique can also have a negative return, as your audience may not be very happy to find that you don't really own a channel with large numbers. In short, my advice is to evaluate the situation well before proceeding in this direction. The variables involved are many.
