= 4th Theory Channel will be a Google Trends Topic =

Hi Theorists!
As a passive watcher of MatPat's work since 2014, it's been interesting to see this community. However, when it comes to theorizing on the subject of MatPat's new channel, I honestly think we aren't putting much research into this topic (mostly wild guess posts/comments from what I can tell) -- so I'm going to give my two cents on the matter, so someone here has
*an actual shot* at correctly guessing MatPat's new channel name. Mine won't have as much research eitherbut I do have a few points we can use to narrow it down a bit**Why use Google Trends
YouTube & GGoogle are linked & aare under the same general company umbrella -- Alphabet, Inc. When you search for videos through Google, it will be YouTube ones that pop up first vs any other platform's options. I don't know the YouTube algorithm (and its many iterations) as well as MatPat, but since both are under Alphabet, Inc & ddirect towards each other -- the search algorithm should be similar between Google & YYouTube

When MatPat theorizes new topics to cover (beyond those that the communityhim), I imagine he is taking into account (beyond YouTube trends) what is also trending in the Google Trends Topics that he has for his channels. Yes, his channels extend a bit beyond those topics (as many topics in Google Trends overlap, as you will see later in this post), but it's a good starting-off point -- especially when MatPat is preparing a grouping of videos to launch a new channel & ddoesn't have the community's input on what exactly they want yet. Google Trends can give a decent gauge as to what to expect & ppredict for his audience there

 **Current Theory Channels are also Google Trends Topics** **Game Theory One of the first-level topics in Google Trends is "Games". Games is searched heavily on both Google & YYouTube. I can't remember the YouTube video, but MatPat went on a rant in a previous video about being a "[second-rate YouTube Channel]" or something of the like. IMO this was a primary contributor for him expanding to other YouTube/Google topics; if he is covering more than just games & sstill getting meaningful views (including trending consistently on the platform), can they continue to deny that? **Film Theory This is the exception of the three channels, as it is not one of the first-level topics for Google Trends. However, if we go to the "Arts & EEntertainment" topic, two second-level topics exists that work here -- "Movies" and "TV & VVideo". Film is part of the name of a few third-tier categories here in those second-level topics ("Animated Films", "Film & TTV Industry", & mmost of the subcategory of "Movies" are types of films). **Food Theory Like Game Theory, Food Theory is another first-level topic in Google Trends: "Food & DDrink". Like his other channels, MatPat has managed to use his video formula in this sphere to make it workable, though with extra creative juices needed for it to be as visually engaging vs the other channels (Video Games & MMovies inherently are designed for visual engagement).**What are the Google Trends Topics
I'm not going to list
*all* of them out below, as the lowest-tier in topics MatPat has ever gone was second-tier for Film Theory -- while Game Theory & FFood Theory were first-level topics. As thus, the list below is just first- and second-level trends topics. With that said, here we go (with bolded subjects those that are already channels):

 **Google Trends Topics that "work" for MatPat's 4th Channel
IMO like others on this subreddit have theorized (and I agree), MatPat likes
* for YouTube. I think he lucked into that with Game Theory, saw that was good for the algorithm with his consulting work with other channels, and decided to continue that trend for his other channels. My suggested 4th Channel Topic (in the comments) will be using that train-of-thought, but you are welcome to use other paradigms as well for your theorizing. Below are the ones that stuck out to me when skimming the Google Trends list above, though I probably missed a few in there: 4-letter, 1 syllable channel names*
1st-tier subjects
2nd-tier subjects

I'm decently sure MatPat's next channel will follow his pattern of using a Google Trends topic(s) in the creation of the new channel name. My personal guess is in the comments below. Let's get brainstorming && theorizing folks!

Welcome to r/GameTheorists!
Make sure to read the rules and we also have a discord!
*I am a bot, and this action was performed automatically. Please * *contact the moderators of this subreddit* * if you have any questions or concerns.* **My Personal Guess -- NEWS THEORY**
A couple of things point to this one:
News as a topic
1 word, 4-letters, 1 syllable
1st-level topic, just like Game Theory && Food Theory
Will not take an ungodly amount of time in the background for his employees
Book theory was ruled out due to the reading involved, && Music theory was ruled out due to the copyright issues involved

As MatPat's theories always take a while to make (due to the editing involved), he won't ever be covering immediate news -- instead the longer-standing issues && prevalent/
news/trends on && off the YouTube platform. This should keep him safer against censorship on YouTube. rewatchable
MatPat's previous theories --
MatPat has joked in previous theories on Game Theory that he has videos there that don't actually "work" on the channel, but still wanted to cover the subject anyways. Giving a resting place for things he feels he needs to talk about is a logical final step for his channel repertoire

Theories on the YouTube Algorithm (we haven't had one of those in a while
Controversies from other channel videos from MatPat && other creators
The blue "book" logo -- yep, I'm bringing that up

Although it can be a book, it can also be a newspaper. Theory logos are always simple so just about anyone can draw them. MatPat has noted before (either in a theory or on GTLive) that when he has consulted with other YouTube creators, he has advised to simplify their channel logos/symbology so fans can more easily draw/spread it around

Pretty much anything that "trends" or is popular on YouTube is fair game to talk about on this channel topic
This opens up a lot more freedom for MatPat to dive into subjects he hasn't talked about before on YouTube
MatPat will have to be careful if talking about anything in the political sphere; staying apolitical is the smart move to go honestly

The only thing that doesn't work with my theory? This subject has
*technically been guessed* in the past when theorizing for Food Theory was on this subreddit 2 years ago. This should technically invalidate this theory -- but as that was some time ago, I think MatPat might be overlooking channel guessing from that time when saying that no one has guessed the upcoming YouTube channel (that guess was for the third theory channel, not the fourth, so I might be in the clear here)
