    Hello I am going to make this first post quite short.

    I've has a few succesfull ventures in the past. Now I want to research youtube marketing and it's algorithm. I let myself have this time off because research is one of the, if not THE, most important aspects of a venture.

    This method involves reuploading content already posted on the internet/youtube. It involves uploading clickbait content with respective clickbait thumbnail THAT ACTUALLY HAS THE CLICKBAIT INSIDE! This means that people actually are able to view the type of content they click for on the thumbnail.

    I will be uploading around 3 videos a day on this channel

    This channel is just for testing how youtube works and trying out different methods. If YOU want to use this method go ahead but the type of channel this works on will be more a churn and burn type of channel than a channel you want to work on long term. I expect my channel to be banned in about 30-60 days from its start. BUT, I have alot more knowledge on how youtube works.

    I will share with you my gained knowledge and will try to explain it as best as I can. I will NOT be sharing my channel OR exact niche.

    Let's go. I am confident 10.000 is completely reasonable here. Ill update this thread 3 times a week. Im not monetizing this channel now.

    I cannot since that would reveal my niche. I will think about it when the 30 days are over since yes, the thumbnail is important for a video.

    Thank you

    Good idea! As far as getting your channel banned, clickbait won't get your channel banned unless you have full on xxx in the thumbnail lol. What will get your channel banned will be using crappy bots and social exchange websites. As far getting to 10K subscribers, the content will be what makes that happen. Clickbait is fine as a long as the videos are actually good. If the videos are bad, that's when clickbait backfires.

    Good luck, I'll be following this journey!

    Thanks all for your replies.

    So first update. Didn't do anything major other than optimize title, description and tags

    Steady upload. This is going better than expected really.

    Also, I want to remind people that just see big numbers here, this channel is HIGH RISK at getting banned so in no way would this be good for long term. I'd say this would be good for having CB and CPA like products.

    thats a great success, nice to see.
    So to get this right, you are just uploading clickbait videos from youtube? or do you take other resources mainly?

    Thanks, yup, reuploading clickbait from youtube and recently also virals from the lesser known uploading sites. Main is youtube though.

    Because I reupload already viral videos from youtube and edit them in a way that its not automatically banned. Plus they're controversational AF so 50/50 people agree on the videos

    Thanks

    Keywords for my niche

    Thanks

    Update:
    Going to do 2 updates instead of 3 per week.

    Doing more videos than I thought I would. I keyword optimize the f out of these videos. Honestly, I am applying incredible shady methods (still on youtube) to get here.

    I always say this in my updates: remember, this niche is not long term and my channel is not monetized. Doing this for yourself is practically a time waste if you want to make money with this channel. I am doing this for research, see what the good and the bad is on youtube and how I can apply different methods of marketing

    What I did so far. Let's say I have a video where a cat catches fire but the man or woman immediately puts out the fire. I optimize the thumbnail and title for a keyword highly searched for and add something like "Man lights cat on fire" for the clickbait part. I put a lighter, fire on the thumbnail. When they come in the video they see it's not exactly someone lighting the cat on fire but accidentally. It will generate incredible views and likes, why? Because it's no animal abuse. People see that the man or woman is actually helping the cat but they don't dislike it because it is good to see that people actually help the animal instead of torturing it. BUT people are like "WTF IS THIS" when they open the video until they watched it.

    The previous as an example. I may or may not have uploaded such a clickbait video. I won't reveal my niche.

    of course but a bunch of people will make money in the short run. I bet someone already saw this and bought 20 proxies and a upload bot.
