Nothing is more annoying after your video ends then another video popping up that has nothing to do with your video.

Or is so offensive that it turns the viewer away from your product or service altogether. Well, if the video happens to be on your website hosted from your YouTube channel, then it might just give viewers a surprise you don’t want.

Yeah, that’s YouTube’s answer to getting more views for other videos. They say it’s based on what might interest someone. Hah, it’s totally random and akin to playing Russian Roulette…you just never know what might happen or what others experience.

So if you’re prone to share your YouTube videos on your website (which I highly recommend) here’s a breakdown of what you need to do to prevent YouTube from recommending other’s videos.

There you go…6 easy steps to get rid of those annoying YouTube recommended videos that autoplay after your video.

Having a video pop up that’s not yours or doesn’t represent your product or service, or sadly, is just downright rude or obnoxious can destroy any authority, credibility or trust that you were trying to make with your video.
