    So if you look at this channel here "Sound of Soul" https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCh2gZBX_qZ5qjkPY8x3bSSA

    You'll see they have around 61k subs at the time of this post.

    It won't be like that for long though as they are gaining over 1000 subscribers a day.
    To put this into perspective for you, this channel was almost nothing just 2 months ago and now they have over 20 million views.

    Take a look at their views and Socialblade.
    http://socialblade.com/youtube/channel/UCh2gZBX_qZ5qjkPY8x3bSSA

    Most of their videos have statistics enabled, so you can see how each performs.

    From what I see they have a few tracks that blew up, but this wouldn't explain how well their new videos are performing.

    How did this channel blow up like this and how is it possible to replicate this sort of thing?

    Just good content, harnessing other media sources to funnel traffic, sprinkle in some paid service and viola....

    It's easy to say that, but where are some examples where this happened? From what I see here the "Papito chcolata" upload went viral and is getting 100k+ views per day which is boosting the channel.

    If you look at some of the other uploads they are getting 100k+ views and looking at statistics it says they gained the channel 300, 250, etc subs.

    Where are other media sources used to funnel traffic?

    Home Page:
    That papito seems to be a true viral hit. Once you have one of those, it blows the channel up (because next in the play list often anothe video from the channel).

    We have a very similar channel that was flat for six months and then suddenly blew up and now adds 1k subs per day...

    It's a perfect example of very good video marketing.
    Thanks for the share!

    That's not good optimization. It's completely random and they havent put anything in the tags or description.
    This is why I made this thread. There isn't one obvious reason why this channel blew up and I'm trying to replicate this success.

    You do know that you can rank a site even without Very good on page right?

    The URL of VID shows TF 3 and URL of videos above them shows TF 0 ...maybe it is easy to rank keyword

    The most interesting part to me they are not getting copyright strike from owners. How is this possible?

    Please don't reply here anymore. This info is all wrong.

    Because the owners obviously don't care. Or they haven't been caught yet.

    I'll tell you.

    Good music + girls thumbs and clips + social media (share, likes etc).

    After you do some social ( and maybe some paid ads) the channel grows itself and you gain subs and views naturally.

    :)

    seems like they are spending too much money in promotion
