    So I spent 2 or 3 weeks making a 3d animation, trying with original content instead of ranking garbage, and there is my reward, 100 views that all came because I posted it on a couple of forums, and 0 fucking subscribers. Meanwhile all those idiots churning daily gameplay videos getting hundred thousands of views. Life is a scam. Can anyone tell me how do I rank my video? I have 50+ youtube accounts. How do I make a top comment in 2015? Do I need different IP for every like on a comment? I have a dynamic IP so I can just plug and unplug my router 50 times if it's needed. I need to rank this video and get views and subscribers because I put so much effort on it I feel like killing myself but I will not so help me ranking it. I have put all needed keywords and so on, but it's pointless. My only hope seems to be to rank top comments of my channel throught black hat techniques but im not sure if it works in 2015 to just upvote a comment a lot of times anymore.

    youtube wouldnt rank you high if your video has only 100 views.

    Some competitive keywords need around 10k high retention views and then your video will be in top5 for that keyword.

    Yes it sucks, the problem is that you can have best video of your niche compared to your competitors, but youtube doesn know about it) So your rank for your keyword will 200+ in search for that keyword.

    How many videos do you have on that channel?
    People ranking garbage using spam, likes, subs and views just churn out videos daily.
    Original content needs to be good and you still need to spend time promoting it.

    Post the video here, if it is any good then people might sub.

    Maybe you need backlinks and more social proof. Read up on some SEO for youtube onpage and off. Only need like 10 really good links to rank quite high for medium competition. This of course being you are getting comments, likes, views, shares at the same time..naturally,...or look natural if that's the route you want to go.

    Thing with youtube is if you spend 2 weeks making a video, better a day or 2 noting how you will advertise that video, whether through social campaign, backlinks, forums, or all the above.
    Can't just spit out a video and expect millions of views on a new account.

    No one will hit subscribe if the count shows '0', so get some subscribers to your channel from exchanging services to show some count. Also for ranking the video you should have high retention views, likes, comments, social signals and backlinks. Don't push much because bunch of evils waiting to flag your video :)

    Buy advertisement. If the video is good then it will show in the results you get.

    Nothing will happen if you just post a video and have no following.

    All you gotta do is invest like 100-200 dollars and you should get lots of views. Then with that when you have lots of subscribers you shouldn't have a problem ranking most videos. It's about channel popularity

    I don't have a FB and I don't know why I should get one since I would have 0 friends. It's useless. Id rather not post my channel here but thanks for your interest. Right now im just trying to gain subs throught ranking youtube comments but the algorithm doesn't allow me to do it with my bunch of accounts i have for some reason even if I use a different IP.

    Yeah I know that plugin for chrome, it doesn't help that much tbh, when you look at what keywords the succesfully ranked videos are using they aren't using anything special. About the subscribetrain type of thing, I've heard youtube was deleting those subs, and those subs seem to be temporary, they tend to leave. Also, since this channel is for posting quality content, im scared that being on something like subscribertrain gets me banned eventually.

    Life is indeed unfair, but there if you work harder, you'll eventually get to the top. Dig deeper than your competitors.
    As for the videos, be consistent in posting videos. Don't expect everyone to watch your first video. If one of your video goes viral, then you would be lucky my friend.

    Personally, I don't subscribe to anybody, I just go to their page. How is the retention on your views? Have you tried some type of call to action? "Like, comment and subscribe for more blah" or "Comment your favorite thing about this"

    Also interested to see the video so please post it here.
    And regarding your question, I agree with what others have said that you need to add some views etc to your account to get people interested and create a buzz around your video - all the while views are at <100 people arent going to be interested.

    Also, if you have spent 2-3 weeks putting that video together then that tells me you have put a lot of effort in. To quote John Chow the key component that you are missing is the marketing - you need to put the same amount of effort (or money) into marketing that video - ie 2-3 weeks of hard graft promoting it on forums etc.
