Decided to start a thread that could be helpful to new people trying to gain more traffic for their youtube channel or videos. I guess I only know some basic techniques to help a little bit. Maybe other will post more creative ways. - Posting on craigslist offering some kind of service and then linking your youtube channel in the post. - Reply to others comments on videos that are related to yours, increases that someone will see your reply and check out your channel. - When posting videos to Twitter always choose a popular hashtag and ones with ReTweet bots. - Sign up to any forum you can that allows signatures and then make a lot of posts ( non spammy ).
