Is It Okay To Upload 100 Videos To One Channel Or Should You Divide Them Between Three Different Channels?

By April

In episode 178 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked whether uploading 100 videos into one channel would be okay or if it would be better to create different channels and divide them between the channels.

The exact question was:

Hi guys.
I want to say you awesome.
I have a question please about YouTube videos local strategy.
I want to promote a business/service in an area.
And with all the keywords and all the small cities that relevant it can be almost 100 different videos.
It will be a good idea to have all those videos on one channel, or it is better to make 3 different channels with 30 videos each and maybe do a collaboration with those channels?
Hope I explain it good enough.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Guys,

For IFTTT Youtube syndication, my partner and I were wanting to do prospecting videos and client videos.
