Annotations to videos on youtube? doesn't make much difference

I tested on my 10 jealousy video series to ad annotations on the video.

Doesn't seem to change much... Of course I am not 100% sure what the impact would be if the annotations were not there... Here is what I observe:

  • Traffic to the jealousy for men page? - no change
  • Number of views? Similar as before - 100-300 views range - same as my Shanghai videos
  • It helps a but with branding and advertising I guess but the change is not significant 
+ it's an extra 15 min of work/video - so not really worth it or needed so far...
