    Hey all.

    So I've recently ranked 3 YT videos in Google for medium competition keywords. It's bringing in some ok money and now I'm working on ranking a video for a HIGH competition keyword. I'm gonna try to keep it short because I know what a bore these things can be to read sometimes.

    I started this journey about a week ago, but most of it was waiting to pass the 301+ views verification checkpoint. I always like to wait until I pass this before I direct any bought views to my videos. I will be using PPD for my source of profit.


    What have I done so far?

    - Keyword research in Market Samurai (if you have any questions about this just ask in this thread - there are tons of other great tutorials on how to do keyword research too).

    - Found a suitable keyword that has approx. 1200 searches PER DAY in Google. (36,000 SPM)

    - Created a high quality video about the keyword and uploaded it to a new YouTube account.

    - Collected points in AddMeFast using iMacros for firefox with scripts posted by OMGWTFISTHIS.

    - Sent views to my video until I get to the 301+ views freeze. (I slowed the views down until it passed it. I didn't stop it completely, just slowed it to about 20 views per day).

    - Set AddMeFast up to drip feed these at this rate:

    1. Likes at 20 per day
    2. Subscribers at 10 per day
    3. Facebook post share at 10 per day
    4. Twitter retweet at 10 per day


    After the video has passed the 301+ freeze (today):

    - Updated my video description with a 500 word article about the topic of my video.

    - Bought 10,000 high retention views from BigBuddy's service (no affiliation but a HUGE fan of his service).

    - Bought a backlink pyramid from a fiverr seller that I've used before (not sure if I'm allowed to link to this so PM me if you want the link). I will end up with about 300 backlinks pointing to my site, backed up with over 1000 links and then even more links pointing to those 1000.


    And for now that is all. I will be doing more in the next few days such as commenting with a ton of different YouTube accounts that I have, doing some dislikes for the video (to make it look natural), and increasing the AddMeFast factors a bit more.

    If you have any questions about anything I just posted or anything else throughout my journey then please just ask! This is the first time I've tackled a high competition keyword, but I do think I should be able to rank it no problem! Let's find out!


    BUDGET: $100 (I expect to spend less than this, but you never know).

    Total Spent: $15
    Total Profit: $0

    Good luck man, interested to see the progress on this. I actually don't have much experience ranking youtube videos, but curious to know what the "301+ views freeze" is that you talked about?

    Well this is almost same as i do, for niches with competition i buy HR views and for niches without high competition i rank them without spending money. This is where i will come every time i rank videos just not to miss anything :) HQ Thread

    Damn, i need to start using imacros and add me fast for some social signals. Lol I bought social signals, been 2 days and havent got them. The TAT is 72 hours, so ill wait some more. In the mean time though, ill be gettin some credits for addmefast. Thanks for the links in the thread man!

    When you get views on a youtube video. The views freeze at the 301 mark. They show as 301+ while youtube is verifying the views are legit. If they are, itll update to the right amount of views, if not. The views freeze.

    I think you'll have no problem at all ranking that video. I'm eager to see how well it ranks. Good luck! :eek:

    >>> Q&A <<<

    Thanks for answering this one. The YT algorithm freezes the views for verification when they reach over 300. This means that they will most likely freeze at 301. But say more than one view came in at EXACTLY the same time, it may freeze at 302+, 303+, 304+ etc.


    You buy high retention views without spending money? You must be a genius! Ha :) thanks for the comment.


    You really do man. It's great because you can collect a ton of points and then just let them drip feed. I would suggest updating the social media link every week so that when Google looks at it, it doesn't look like an old link. The newer the better.

    I may pay for a social signals service on here because I found a seller who is giving 10% off. I can't remember his name but I'll put it in my next update. It also makes less work for me so that I can concentrate on other things. (I'm learning about robotics and building my own small robot as a weekend project :D ).


    Thanks for the sub. I'll try to post as much information as I can.


    I only every use AddMeFast views to get up to the 301+ freeze. They are pretty useless after that as they have about a 10% retention rate (or less depending on the length of your video). Once you've hit that I would stop the Views link and add in the Likes and Subscribers links.


    Thanks for the comments and subs. Update coming soon. Stay tuned!

    I'll be following this Journey, I'm very interested to see how it turns out for you! :)

    I recently managed to rank a video for an extremely competitive niche in 1 day, then the next day it was took down by someone who had flagged it multiple times. What I learnt from that was; don't spend too much time and money on 1 video.

    Good Luck!
