    I have a youtube channel that has been aged, in 2011 I had a video go a bit viral, on my channel I got a total of around 650k+ video views, around 100 subs (got them yeaaaaars ago).

    I want to make a youtube channel completely unrelated to the video that got viral, I'm just considering to just rename the channel, and eventually deleted all the videos on it.

    Is it better to do this than to create a new channel? I would assume there are some benefits having an aged account + a popular video.

    I would say yes. Aged account really matter this days since YouTube regularly banned new account and also when you connect to your Adsense account..


    Good luck

    It wont make much difference since when you will delete the videos all the views will get removed, Subs will be there. It will only be an aged account so yeah you can give it a try.

    Ah okay.

    The account was made in 2009, however I can now see, that I'm qualified for a bunch of stuff. I haven't really been a lot into youtube so it's the first time I see it now. I can have ads, longer than 15 min vids, custom URL etc.

    Will I have these benefits if I delete my videos and rename my channel?

    And is there any other benefits I got? Like do I get some kind of authority on my videos or better SEO from having a aged account?

    I think new accounts get a worse rank than aged accounts

    Hmmm there is less things you can do with it,
    1 - Sell it
    2 - Try some CPA with it

    and also it's not good to remove the video from it you'll just lose the views, and it will look like the new one, but the Subs & Creation date will still the same, and u know better than me ^^!

    Good luck on that bro !

    I saw some YouTube Guru (maybe it was Derral Evas or some other guy) say that it is always better if you have a channel that already had some views and some viral videos than to start fresh

    Nope use the old one as it has "authority" not to mention the subscribers.
