From YouTube’s inception, we’ve seen different genres of content and creators rise and fall. While this phenomena is a natural occurrence in the world of entertainment (trends come and go), YouTube’s almighty algorithm also plays an integral role in this process. The algorithm over the years has evolved with the sole purpose of commanding an audience and keeping them on the platform.
