    What's your opinion on upload frequency and video length? It's no secret that YouTube promotes videos and channels with a large amount of total watch time. However, while crapping out 10-minute videos every day does rack up watch time, the video quality often drops very badly when uploading too much, and audience retention is also bad when videos are longer.

    Hello awesome thread, thank you for all valuable info. I would like to ask about this channel. (Titanium Track) go ahead and check out his vids. He is uploading for one year and got a lot of videos with more than milion vews. His first uploaded video got 5.4 mil views. My question is how is he doing it? I mean such a number of views? Is it thanks to bought views ? if yes, then he is investing huge amount of money to views (crazy). Last month he got two videos in a row with more than 1mil views. Please check him out :) It obvious he is doing something couse i got videos with less views but much more comment likes etc. thanks in advance

    Any frequency works as long as your audience expects it. I've seen channels upload monthly like I've seen channel upload daily.

    Its works differently from channel to channel and depends on what works for you. I haven't noticed any major differences in retention when it comes to longer content. The longer the viewer spends on your video the more opportunities there are for an AD to show up.

    For example, if I upload 4 x 10min videos this week, and each gets 1000 views then I have racked 4000 views with a retention of 50%. That's about 20min watched-time in 4000views

    So what if I upload 1 video of 40min while keeping 50% of retention and 1000views? That's 20min in 1000. Not too different but 20min worth of ads compared to single videos getting 5min watched-time.

    I would rather a viewer spend 20min on my videos than 5min on a shorter video and end up going to a different channel afterward

    Now think about burning subscribers. What if you get 1000 new subscribers on a Saturday, but you post a video a new video daily and those new subscribers got to watch only 20% of you new videos. YT thinks your new subscribers are not interested in your content, therefore it will not push your content cuz it thinks your videos stinks.

    Interesting topic! :D Got a few questions

    1) You mentioned Real Engagement, do you got any tips to boost engagement from viewers?
    I think I tried everything, asking several questions to viewers, question on top comments, custom art for different video types, & Even having giveaways but little change in the like/sub/comments for videos

    2) You also mentioned doing the hard work with engagement early on to get "slow ball" on channel, what do you mean exactly?
    Are you manually replying to every person who posts on your video?
    If so, what do you reply

    3) Do you know on best way to get on Youtube recommended / suggested for your video?
    suggested videos seem to grow best instead of ranking for specific key words

    4) Any advice on structure description for better SEO?
    I try to write short summary of video in description but then you see channels or videos with no tags, no description get 100k - 1mil+ views

    Hope you can answer, thanks!

    By the looks of it, he didn't buy views. He was lucky to get his first video trending for the topic: "Video Games Graphics", If you noticed his views/video ratio suck with most videos not going over 30k and as low as 5k. He was on a roll when he pushed multiple videos containing the same topic and did very well. What was his downfall, he stopped poting videos in the topic his channel was already trending on.

    Make better videos xD

    DM me what you are looking for.

    Hey, thank you for doing this. I have subbed to your youtube, and liked on fb, and left a 5 star review from one of my FB accs to combat that 1 star troll :)

    My questions:

    How do you get into a video's suggested views? I've been averaging 100k real views for about a year, but mostly from keywords I ranked on. I upload 1 hour mixes, average view is 20 mins. Even with this type of watch time, my videos never get recommended to other videos. I've tried using the exact same keywords as some other videos I want to target, lots of keywords, few keywords, but nothing seemed to work. Recently one of my videos got into No. 2 of suggested into a big video, and through that I'm getting 1k views/day. This is the first time something like this happened, and I've been uploading daily for a year now. I checked this video where I got suggested, and I barely found any similarities. There's literally 2-3 words that match in title/desc/tags, and that's it. It seems completely random, and I have no idea how to replicate it to get into other videos' suggested list.

    2) About 3% of my watch time is through subs, and I have 7k of them. On a new vid I get about 300 views from subs. Could this be negatively affecting my ranking in suggested lists?

    3)I want to start a new channel where I experiment with tags and titles. Does a completely new channel with no views,subs have a chance at ranking in suggesteds? Would buying some high retention views for it help it?

    1) You are doing all the right things but it also depends on what kind of audience you have. What is the age range of your audience? Consider if your traffic is under 13, they would be using their parent's accounts.

    2) You misread that part. At the beginning or start of your channel your should be doing all the legwork to bring an audience to your channel. After a while of YT indexing your channel and seeing real engagement coming to your channel, they will start pushing your content, you can see quick results in a matter of days, doesnt matter if they send you 5 views, at least it was suggested. That's a good sign already, you will slowly get your new content suggested and it will grow on its own as long you stay consitent with your uploads. That's when the snowball effect comes into play

    3) answered above, make sure your keywords are relevant. Look for keywords that are driving views. You can see it in other people's titles; it's like a pattern

    4) make the most out of it, just make sure your kwds are included in. I believe YT takes priority in your title > description > tags

    I make a compeling rich in SEO title first, the I add my tags. When it comes to tags I only use the kwds added in my title, and it's possible combinations of these using my main kwd. After doing that, if I have some extra space in the tags, I will add other related kwds that doesnt fit in my title, so I add them in my description instead. In a few words I optimize my tags section to weight more towards the keywords in my title, then use the "description section" to support the other keyword that is not in my title.

    I use both across different channels. The only thing that I like about MCN Networks is that they can get higher CPMs due to having a Sales Team. The sad thing is that not all networks have a clue how YT works and make false promises to help you grow, all they want is channels to partner with them so they get $$ from your channel.

    1) Send me DM with your channel and the video that is suggesting your video pleaae. I'll have a look and get a better understanding to help you

    2) it affects a little but you shouldn't worry. This is better than now views at all from your subs, it's completely normal for the size of your channel.

    3) Go for it, this is what i do, i create channels and let them age. Youtube favors aged accounts over brand new pnes. All it means is that it might take longer for a brand new account to show results.

    I never seen it and WTF man. The 2 min version has 77 million views..:eek: but I get it, the dumber and idiotic a lot of times something is the bigger chance it goes viral as most people are plain and boring so they could share this shit and tell their friend, look at this crazy mofo.

    Thanks so much for your reply! I am learning good things in this treath! You motivate me to keep doing and uploading !

    Another question: I have 130 videos on my channel, all of them with same keywords spiderman, hulk....
    but for exemple, I have 20 videos of "learn colors", 20 videos of "McDonalds Drive thru", 20 about "hulk push joker into pool", 15 about "reckless joker Crushes spiderbaby toys under car" etc.
    Is it bad? I mean, maybe I have to choose a topic... for exemple "learn colors" and starts uploading all my videos with "learn colors" tittle and then change few things on tittle!
    I am not sure if I explain it correctly !
    Again thanks you! I really needed a YT mentor with good information. There is a lot of fake/olded information on internet
