    How do you get to the front page? Is it just through views?

    Youtube. Let's say you make a business or music video, how exactly do you get it onto the front page? Just through views?

    Copy pasted the banner below the last post.
    But its not just views, there's also an editorial review from their mods, and you need a good video to begin with.

    I mean if you're Russian, just faceplant a cat into some bushes and put it up it will go viral.

    it depends on everything:

    1- Views/day
    2 - Number of Comments
    3 - Video Sharing
    4 - Likes
    5 - Fav

    everything is measured ..so if all is good then your video will be on top..



    thanks.

    It's not hard to go viral if the content is good, presented correctly, and then shared in a timely manner. The problem is, most of the time people don't know that a viral effect is actually psychologically induced. Something that draws people in is fun and intriguing (omg what?) will create a lot of shares in a timely manner. As for anything else, this is BHW and figure you can do the rest (the sharing part) by buying into BSTS here. The free way is to go to reddit or another social site and spam the shit out of them until someone feels sorry for you.

    Post a video that's either: interesting, stupid or awesome. There, you'll go viral.

    I agree. I have a music video for a musician that I will put on Youtube. It's a good song and stuff, however he's competing with millions and millions of views. So I'm trying to figure out how to get it to the top
