Stats are always from the time of writing - I can't be bothered to do an update on the exact second Youtube updates my stats. I will, however, try my best to update at the same time every day (22:00 GMT +1). :)

What Happened Since The Last Update?
Testing out different services from the SMM panel to get the best service for the cheapest price.

Received a new video today from my editor. Contemplating leaving my team. They want to upload the full edited video to their main Youtube channel (with 9 subscribers), and I upload a teaser and link to their account. Big no-no. I am economically in a much better place right now than back when I joined, so I can afford to pay for edits & thumbnails myself. Feel like shit for leaving when they've probably spent about $120 on me, a small Youtuber. Thinking of paying them back, then leaving.

What would you do?
just say bye bye

Nice stats OP. Good Luck!

Quick question, why does your teams main channel sponsor small creators but have 9 subscribers? Seems like an awful way to do promotion.

Good question :p If they want to burn money, have at it!

just say bye bye

Decided to stay; we came to an agreement :)

About 1,000 per day. Doing $480 on Google Ads soon, should hopefully see some results!

New video uploaded (right as we speak)! Have a warmed-up Google Ads account with $480 I'm ready to spend on this bad boy. Hope it drives me some genuinely interested subscribers!

New video was received okay. About 120 views over the last 22 hours. That's a bit low I think, considering I have +800 subscribers.

I started my Google Ads for that video yesterday, but it had an error that had to be changed this morning. Expecting views to come in by tomorrow or Monday.

Turning up the watch time views, chose another, longer video. Still aiming for about 70-85 hours per day.

My most viewed video is sadly losing traction, views are falling every day.

- Google Ads started, only like 5 views came in so far (CPC @ 0.15, don't really know why it's so slow, I'll give it a couple of days)
- Shared a video on a Subreddit related to my niche, bought upvotes, got about 400 views from that. The old supplier was way too expensive, now I will buy it elsewhere cheaper (and just as good)
- Some watch hour views came in. Total new watch hours yesterday was 159.8, but YouTube's monetized section doesn't add up at all lmao; sadly that's the one to follow

Can you pm me your old supplier now that you stopped using it?

Just look at the Marketplace on BHW :)

- Google Ads stilling running really slow
- A lot of watch hour views came in; I'm afraid a bit too fast.

How often does Google reject appliers who've used fake watch hour views?

- Google Ads still running VERY slowly, despite my keyword have thousands and thousands of searches per day, and my max CPC is a whopping $0.30. Don't really know what to do.
- Might have gone a little too crazy with the watch hours :eek:

Just read through your entire thread. Keep on pushing man, you're on the right track! Just imagine where you could be a year or two from now if you keep on growing.

I'm going to launch a YT channel soon as well so I'm loving the inspiration!

Keep updating us

Again, pretty disappointed about subscribers.
However, it looks like I am about 3 days away from 4k watch hours!
I'll probably buy the last subscribers unless something crazy happens :3
