YouTube Shorts is a short-form video-sharing platform offered by YouTube. The platform hosts user content much like YouTube’s primary service but limits pieces to 60 seconds in length.

Search Engine Journal contributor Matt G. Southern has published an article explaining the YouTube Shorts Algorithm.

He says, “YouTube demystifies the Shorts algorithm in a Q&A video that addresses several of the most common questions creators have about gaining visibility with short-form content.

We know at least some information about how YouTube’s recommendation algorithm works for long-form videos, but we know little about the Shorts algorithm.

YouTube’s Q&A video touches on subjects such as:

  • Whether you should create a separate channel for Shorts
  • The impact of publishing long and short-form content on the same channel
  • If engagement with Shorts is a factor for YouTube’s long-form content recommendation algorithm.”
