This video highlights some useful search queries you can use on YouTube. These include finding your videos on other people’s playlists, finding out who has favorited your videos, video responses you’ve made or responses people have made to you, and also finding out if anyone has featured your videos.
In order to search to see if your videos are in anyone’s playlists, enter the following in your Google search:
“your username” site:youtube.com/playlist
This will list any playlists which contain videos by you, or any user you put in the “your username” part of the search.
You can also search for video responses. If you’re curious about finding video responses you’ve done, or video responses people have sent to you, you can enter the following into a Google search:
“your username” site:youtube.com/video_response_view_all
This will give a list of every video response which is associated with your username.
If you’re curious to see if any of your videos are featured on another person’s channel, you can enter the following into a Google search:
“your username” site:youtube.com/user/*/featured
This will give a list of any channels which are featuring your videos. Unless someone else is featuring your videos, in most cases only your own channel will be listed in the search results. The asterisk (*) is a wildcard which will allow you to search any user. If you’re looking for a specific user, just replace “*” with “username.”
Finally, if you’re curious to see if anyone has favorited any of your videos, you can type the following into a Google search:
“your username” intitle:”Favorite videos” site:youtube.com/playlist
This works by using the “intitle” command to look for any pages on YouTube that have “Favorite videos” in the title. Specifically, in the “youtube.com/playlist” path. This will give you a list of any people who have favorited your videos, and which videos they’ve favorited.
