Other reason of its popularity amongst the content creator is that YouTube is just not a popular video website but a Powerful Search engine that plays a critical role in Search Engine Optimization or SEO.

Since it allows the YouTuber to monetize their videos, you may find wide range of contents ranging from academic tutorials, beauty tips, Product Reviews, Spiritual Videos, Unboxing and what not. You think of a problem and you will find the solution on YouTube.
