I dit the same for the Perl Maven site with a video published on May 13, 2020.
The Code-Maven video got 2,800 views, 13% watched the whole 2 minutes, the average view dureation was 0:31, 26.7% of the viewers watch that much. The End screen element click rate was 1% (while the channel average is 2%) they both seem to be very low but I have not comparision.
I gained a total of 3 subscribers.
The Perl Maven video got 1,100 views. 24% watched till the end of the 1:27 min long video. Average view duration was 0:39 and 45.3% of the audience reached it. It does not have the End screen statistics as the video was unlisted and so the end screen did not work. I made the video public now. On July 25, 2020.
It brought 5 new subscribers.
Actually a very small percentage of the site visitors looked at the video and an even smaller percentage subscribed to the YouTube channel.
Either I need to improve the videos, or maybe I should remove them from the site and conclude that this does not work.
