You might even be the next YouTube sensation, but at the end of the day, what you really want is for people to take enough of an interest in you, that they take the time to subscribe to your channel and eventually visit your website or blog.
For years YouTubers were frustrated by the lack of traffic data available for their YouTube channel.

This left the video analytics door wide open for freemium tracking services like vidIQ, Cyfe and TubeTrackr to easily attract any video marketer who wanted detailed performance reports for their channel. All of that changed a few days ago when YouTube released Realtime traffic reports on the desktop version of YouTube Analytics.
