Before I go to sleep, just wanted share a few good methods that I use to easily propel my comments in the "Highest Rated Commenters" in those mainstream videos! I use this method for a lot of my YouTube marketing, but I wouldn't say on what and how since that isn't the focus of this thread. This can work with any video as long as it is also being watched by a 7-17 year old girl/boy. It doesn't matter even if your target audience is 20-40++ man/woman, as long as the video also interests the kids/teenagers then this tricks could work really well. Method 1 -- Obvious technique Compliment the person on the video. Especially if it's a man, if you don't have any problem with doing this then lots of horny teenage girls will give you a thumbs up, especially if you said a specific part of his body, not just the typical "OMG HE IS HOT!!!!11111111." Method 2 -- Exploit the "Dislike" button. If a VIDEO is getting a high number of "Likes" then you could exploit the number of people who disliked the video. Example... Let's say that you're target video is in the music niche and 1500 people disliked the video of a pop stars' song. You could say: 1500 people had an eargasm while listening to "pop star name goes here" and accidentally clicked the dislike button. Yes, eargasm. I think I had about 100+ comments on different videos that hit the top rated commenter while using this theme on my comment "had an eargasm" and "accidentally clicked the dislike button" -- Remember that Another stupid comment that I've seen is: Mom: Son, where are you going? Son: Out, I'm gonna kill the 1500 people who disliked "pop star name here" music video. Mom: take your daddy's shotgun. Yeah, that piece of shit comment is top rated on some trending videos. You won't believe how shallow some people are. Method 3 -- JUSTIN B3IB3R By far, this has been my ace. How? Simple. Insult the shit out of B3iber. You see, some teenage boys are so insecure and pissed with Justin B3iber because of all the teenage girls that he is getting that whenever they see a comment that says that he sounds like a girl, looks like a girl, acts like a girl, puts on more make up than a girl, has a hair like a girl.... These boys are going to click that thumbs up button. Just about any comment that you can think of that will humiliate this Just!n. And the best part about method 3 is that this works with EVERY video that has something to do with him. Whether it is a fan made video, music video, Justin spotted on the mall etc... Basically just about any video that has anything to do with him, you can effectively do this method. The first time that I tried this was when Justin had a bottle thrown at his head while on stage, that video was on the first page of youtube in 3 different categories at the same time. I've made aroud $200 with it before my comment got over powered by another insulting comment. Lol. And it wasn't even the original upload, I only managed to comment on a duplicated video that still managed to go viral and hitchhike from the original videos view. Plus, one of the great thing with method 3 is that even with American Idol videos and all that crap which I also monetize, I can still manage to get in Beiber's insulting comment ) Plus plus, this could also be combined with method 2. By saying that the people who disliked this video is of "beiber" fan "insult goes here" I don't use method 1, what I usually focus on is method 3 and I just steal from the other commenters who insult him on other Beiber vids and spin the comment. And because the Beib3r insult can go with any main stream videos, I have no trouble using my software to scrape for videos to comment on. And less work for me on spinning the comment. Of course almost all of this is automated. Now, just to be clear. This is not a Beiber hate thread I'm not even into this kinds of music. I'm more of a Steve Vai, Malmsteen and Satriani guy (I think WizGizmo can relate to me on this one). And even on this instrumental guitar videos I STILL see the Beiber hate comments being marked as a top rated comment Once again, I will not disclose any info on how I am monetizing this since it is very easy for other people to find out since I'm using main stream vids to comment on. But on average, I make $20-$70 per day with this, almost everything is automated hence, I wouldn't be bothering with this if I had to do anything manually. But the good thing is that the cash per day keeps on growing and growing every single day, more when there is a soon-to-be viral video that I manage to comment on. One last thing, if you manage to get a comment on top rated comments section, you could make a reply to that comment and be like the "faithful fan" and fight for his name, you won't have to think outside of the box when constructing this "thoughtful" comment, just make sure that it is 4-5 sentence long full of kind words and whatever. Most of the time they will also thumbs up this and there you have it, two of your comments on the highest rated comments That's all. EDIT: Sorry, I posted this in the black hat SEO. Always make this mistake. I apologize and hope that a mod could move this to the appropriate section. Thanks.
