Find the Best Thumbnail for Current Events

This software is dedicated to any YouTube channel that publishes news. Thumbnail Test is a simple tool that’ll help you revive old news and boost the engagement rate on new, upcoming videos. By working with your real target audience, Thumbnail Test finds out what your viewers click on — so it’s a win-win for both yourself and your audience!

  • What it does: It’s like a newsroom for your content analytics, allowing you to A/B test different thumbnails or titles for your news segments to discover which stories catch more viewers’ eyes.
  • Why it’s crucial: In the fast-moving news cycle, grabbing viewers’ attention is essential. The right thumbnail or title can make your coverage the go-to source for informed viewers, increasing click-throughs and engagement.
  • Data-Driven Decisions: Move past assumptions. Gather concrete data on which aspects of your news content (like headlines, current events, or impactful images) truly engage your audience, guiding your editorial choices with clarity.

Frequently asked questions

How does it work?

We store all the thumbnails you upload.

Every day at midnight (or every hour throughout the day), we change the thumbnail on your chosen video to the next thumbnail in the list.

At the end of the test, we look back at the click-through rate, views, and other stats each thumbnail got, and give you that data to decide which thumbnail performed the best.

What is A/B Testing?

Normally, an A/B test is when you show 100 people something, 50 see A and 50 see B, then you judge if A or B is better based on their reactions.

Therefore, a thumbnail A/B test means we show thumbnail A for one day/hour, then thumbnail B for one day/hour, and repeat that for a couple weeks.

At the end, we see which thumbnail more people clicked on.

How much do I have to do?

1. Pick a video
