I'm working with someone who is working on getting a YouTube channel off the ground with original scripted content. This is sort of new for me because the reputation of the YouTube account can't be tarnished and getting anything flagged would be a problem for them. I was just wondering if any of you had experience walking the tightrope between Whitehat and Blackhat for YouTube and could help me out with the strategy I was going to try / is there anything you'd add? In the past they have had trouble getting traffic through YouTube itself (via tags, description) so they want to look into other methods. Strategy thus far: - Buying small amounts of HR views (no more than 4-5000) to make videos look more legit - FollowLiker on Twitter and Insta following niche and pointing back to channel - Posting on forums with videos / ranking on Reddit - Contacting blogs for featured content, links, embeds, etc Thanks!
