Can you see how many dislikes a YouTube video has? Yes, but only if you it’s your channel or you are an admin. That’s probably good, but creators might still want to know. And there’s a way to tell. Let me show you two ways you can see how many dislikes – if any – your video received.

The public can only see how many likes there’ve been.

How important is it to know the number of dislikes?

Certainly, knowing how many people didn’t like your video and took the time to click the button can be helpful. But also, don’t overthink it. Remember that most people watch the video and don’t click like or dislike it. And the higher your viewing number is, the higher your likes and dislikes will be.

Are dislikes bad on YouTube anyway? They probably influence the algorithm and don’t feel great when you see a bunch as a creator.

So, it’s good to know, but don’t give it too much influence or too little.
