YouTube ratings are interesting things. When a video is viewed as en embed or a pre-roll ad, viewers find their way to the video’s original YouTube page where they can leave a rating.
Filtering diverse content by the same criteria is never perfect, but when you filter YouTube videos by both number of ratings but also the rating themselves you get a really good blend of popularity and organic viewership through YouTUbe’s much more refined algorithm rather than letting paid placements (that drive views) rise to the top.
When I ran the ranking this time I noticed that when two filters were applied:
- At least 25 ratings.
- Uploaded since Nov 1, 2016
Exactly 26 videos had both 25+ ratings but also a perfect score of 5.0.
It’s kind of an interesting, intriguing collection of resort news, lift updates, snow reports, and freeskiing edits. Take a look.
