NOTE: Adweek’s VideoWatch Chart, powered by VidIQ, reveals the Top 10 Web Series Videos on YouTube every week. The chart tracks more than just pure views; VidIQ incorporates sharing data from Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, among other data sources, in an effort to measure true engagement. Every video is also ranked with VidIQ's proprietary score which helps judge the likelihood of a video being promoted in YouTube Related Videos, Search and Recommended Videos.
The ranking is also meant to capture "born on the Web" YouTube content. Thus, material like clips from TV shows, movie trailers, video games and music videos are not included.
