Most people complain about the YouTube algorithm because they expect it to just work out of the box with zero tuning. It’s not that good.But if you put in a LITTLE effort I promise you it’s an absolute recommendation beast. you will have hundreds of hours of content in my watch later list just because of it. It’s all super high quality and I’m rarely disappointed hitting random videos in my homepage. Here are some tips to tune the recommendation algorithm
- Hide the stuff you don’t want to see on your homepage
- Remove undesired videos from my watch history (or watch them in incognito in the first place).
- click “Not Interested”, “Don’t Recommend Channel”, etc. on video recommendations of the sort you don’t want.
- Like videos you are interested in
