    What do you guy think? Misleading title will get you lots of video and if you have pre roll ads, can that help you? Also is this against youtube's TOS?

    Misleading titles will piss off people, so they will report your video and it will get removed in no time.

    My idea was to have the title "Justin Bieber fighting" as the title and have myself talk about what a punk bieber is on a cam. A lot of youtubers are doing this.

    best advice ever...and for your future...
    ...take a second and think about how you would react when confronted with the idea you got?
    ...damn right - and guess what: other people maybe just as intelligent as you are.

    Won't help! Your vids will get deleted and the time you spent will be wasted.

    Now ask yourself if you have some time to waste.

    I disagree with most answers on this thread. A lot of big Youtubers use misleading titles all the time. You just have to carefully phrase them and make them somewhat relevant to what viewers think theyare clicking on.

    You could try divert the viewers to your own site, or even another video.

    There's quite a lot you can do, but it depends on the video topic.

    If the viewers come to your vid thinking they'll watch a dancing chick and instead they find a dog running after a ball, chances are they'll exit as soon as they realize the chick is not coming. Which would lead to low retention views and a drop in rankings.

    Really bad idea. I had a simple cat video age restricted. I would concentrate on ranking the video on the first page rather than using this method of misleading people.

    Is called trigger words, and they are not misleading.
