YouTube Creator Awards, also known as YouTube Play Buttons, is an award series from YouTube that aims to recognize the most popular channels on YouTube. They come according to a channel’s subscription count but are entirely at the discretion of YouTube. Subscribers of YouTube can vote for their favorite videos and the ones that receive the most votes are the ones that become the awards. Here is a look at what are the YouTube Creator Awards and how they work.
There are different types of YouTube Play Buttons which all have something to do with the number of subscriptions that a particular channel has. Once you reach a subscriber milestone, YouTube will change the appearance of the play button so as to match the color scheme that the channel has. Once you reach one million subscribers, the button changes to a blue play button.
The first type of YouTube Play Button is the bronze play button. At the start of each year, a different number of people are chosen as subscribers. When you visit a video on YouTube, the play button will turn to the bronze color. This signifies that your video has reached a high visibility on the site. As you get closer to reaching one million subscribers, the bronze button will turn to a gold color. If you reach two million subscribers, the play button will turn to a silver color.
The second group of YouTube play buttons is the ruby red ones. These are awarded to videos that have the most views in a specific period of time. At the start of every year, there are several people who are chosen as well as many who fail to be selected as subscribers. At the end of the year, there are new people who are chosen as well as people who fail to be chosen.
The third group of YouTube play buttons is the golden ones. These are given to videos which have achieved a target of one million subscribers within the first three months since their creation. You can actually check on this yourself by visiting the “channel” section of the YouTube home page. On the top left corner, you will see a golden button with the word “Subscribers” at the end.
The fourth group of YouTube play buttons are the diamond ones. These are awarded to videos which have one million subscribers or more within the last three months. It takes a lot of hard work to achieve one million subscribers so you would probably be happy to know that even if you don’t reach this mark, you will still be able to earn millions of dollars by uploading the videos that you have made for YouTube. There are actually millions of people who use YouTube and without them there will be no video sharing site in the world today. It is important therefore to make sure that you get a share of the billions of views that these websites get everyday.
The fifth and last group of YouTube play buttons are the rubies. These are given to those videos which have five million subscribers or more within the last three months. The reason why these are called the rubies is because they are the most expensive ones in terms of the monetary value. There are certain criteria that you need to meet in order to qualify for the rubies, the most important of which is the number of views your video has had within the past three months. If your video has been viewed by at least one hundred thousand people, then you automatically qualify for the ruby play button.
The six golden buttons are given to the videos, which have passed the subscriber milestone. The subscriber milestone is a special purpose on YouTube, where they highlight the videos that have done well in terms of views, downloads, views per day and many other things. Once you have passed this big amount, then you automatically become a creator and are able to use the famous yellow button. When you become a creator, you can already expect massive traffic and an increase in your page rank.
