How YouTube CC Helps You to Get More Views?
YouTube CC (Closed Captions) is much capable of bringing more views to your videos.
Why? Because YouTube algorithms prefer to highlight YouTube videos that contain closed captions because such content appears universally acceptable and it helps to boost the experience for viewers.

YouTube CC can easily bring more viewers to your terminal. But not all users know how to turn it on or bother to turn it on when it can actually help improve the watching experience. So there are few benefits that you can enjoy by having CCs ALWAYS on your videos.
- Closed captions play an important role when you have poor audio quality in your videos. For instance, if your videos did not follow the best audio recording practices, and are affected by background noise or bad audio equipment. In such cases, YouTube subtitles help viewers to understand what is going on videos even if they cannot hear it.
- For those who make videos with a unique accent, discuss something complex, or speaks too fast, turning on the closed captions help your viewers understand explanations and maintain their attention.
- This feature makes videos more accessible and can also appear useful for viewers that are hearing impaired.
