    To prove to a family that making any money on YouTube is possible I created a niche channel and posted a few videos. I used some free plugins and tag generators to tag my videos and posted them to Reddit and twitter. One video in particular is now second on the front search page and gets a steady 150 viewers a day. It was slow going to begin with but now since it hit second its proving my point to my family. I have not been as successful with the others however. Could it just be that people are searching for that specific video and the others aren't as popular? Also it seemed that once the reddit traffic dried up it just took on new life and gets views on its own now. Twitter was a bust no traffic from that. I'm really just confused about how I got an obscure video to rank; how did I get senpai to notice me? I'm still N00b so any direction is appreciated.

    ~Thanks

    Check your analytics and find out where the traffic is coming from. It may not be coming from search at all, but may be from suggested videos or even an embed on another site.

    Wow thanks. Yeah it seems on the highest earning video the traffic is coming from suggested 45%. Dude, how do I get this kind of traffic for other videos? If I could scale this... MIND BLOWN!!!!

    If we knew that, we'd all be rich. My best guess is create a compelling title and awesome thumbnail.

    I've had it happen to me too. I'd have a video which didn't do very well and then a few weeks later it would start getting 500 views a day. That's why I tell people to never delete their videos if they didn't do well at first, you never know what will happen.

    What is the niche? If it's an unpopular niche it's possible to rank a video instantly.

    I think i know little bit about this,(how to get traffic from "sugested video section in youtube)

    1) you should create a video and the title should be similar to that of popular videos (videos with millions of view) - Dont focus on keywords

    2) do seo for the title of the video (not keywords) (i suggest PBN embeds from konker), social bookmarking can work too

    Results You Can Expect :
    You will get more than 50% of the traffic from suggested video section. Its like sending an video email - if anybody is interested in dog training (has watched dog training videos before) your video will appear on the persons sugguested video section - so the views you get i targeted and has a high possibility to converts (depends on many factors)

    I followed this strategy and making about $400 per month from 1 video, could be making more, the payout is just $3 per sale.

    The video below (from Alex Becker) will help you fully understand this concept
