This thread will explain to you how to get each element of a Youtube video rank within the Youtube search. These elements are as follows: Likes Comments Subscribers Views I have specific methods on how to get each and every one of these, so I will try to consolidate my already written methods and explain them more in depth. So I've been asked this literally hundreds of times, so I will explain it in pretty clear detail. Likes Alright, so as we all know - likes not only boost your ranking on the Youtube search, it also acts as a social indicator to the random viewer. Which video would you download from, the one with 1,000 likes, or the one with 10? 1. I personally use AddMeFast for this method, as it's VERY easy to get points and have them converted to likes. I honestly do not want to cross post as I find it dis-tasteful, but for the purpose for this method - I will. Please click here to find my iMacros script for AddMeFast to rake in 2,000 points in an hour! 2. Read the thread, it will explain it fully on how exactly you should use the script. Basically, you will need a Facebook account to like thousands of pages. You will get points in return on the AddMeFast website, and you can then "cash out" your points for Youtube LIKES. I'd say you could put your payout to around 7 points per like. That means to get 1,000 Youtube likes, you will need 7,000 AddMeFast points. You can get that in a few hours! Comments Comments are also a huge factor when it comes to ranking your videos in the #1 spot on Youtube. This is probably the most in depth process, however once you get a hang of it you'll be spitting out hundreds of comments in an hour. 1. First of all we will need to use U2bviews for this method, so start running the U2bviews program from this link. Make sure you signup, of course! 2. Now that we have the program, setup your Youtube account and U2bviews account in the Settings tab of the program itself. 3. While you're doing that, let's work on scraping hundreds of comments per minute. Please download This program from the link provided. What this does, is it will scrape hundreds of already posted comments from Youtube and spit them back out into a Text document for you. This is useful for taking those comments and putting them as our own comments! I'll explain more. Oh - here is a Virus Total for that program just in case you don't trust me. It's a false positive. Click here for the Virus Total scan. 4. Please setup the program as I have shown in the picture below. 5. In the keywords box, try to think of every single keyword in which you can think of. For example: Free Microsoft Points Get Microsoft Points Free Microsoft Points Generator Free Microsoft Points 2013 Tutorial 6. You will want to now press start, which would be right where step 5. would be as I have shown in the program. This can take several minutes to scrape hundreds, even thousands of comments related to your niche. Once it's done scraping, you will find a window that pops up like this: Obviously, press OK. 7. You can now save it to any file type that would be used for text reading, so we are going to click "Save and Close" at the bottom of the program, and we will now be able to export it. Because of the small file size, I typically use the "Export to TXT", which will save it as a .txt file. Do so, give it a name - and you're now done scraping comments. 8. If you open that text program in a program such as Notepad++, you will realize that there are tons of random question marks in the middle of sentences. We can remove these by pressing "CTRL + H". This will bring up a dialogue box for the Find and Replace feature, which will find a string of text and replace it with whatever you want. For this example, we will be finding "?" and replacing it with nothing, "". You can refer to my image below for an example. 9. Now that's all done, we can now make and open a NEW text file. You can name it something such as "CommentsforVideos", in which this will be where we are going to manually look over all the comments it scraped and copy only the ones we think are useful for our videos. So do so, and when you are done - save that new .txt file. 10. So you should now have a .txt file, and perhaps even a few hundred U2bviews credits. Please open the U2bviews program if you have not already, and press the below button within the program: This is the tab in which you can request views and comments, but we are going to use this for comments purely! 11. You can now import the .txt file in which you saved earlier, the one that you want for your Youtube comments. Remember to have each comment on one line, otherwise you will get half sentences. Please refer to the image below on how to set this up. ***Also Note that you MUST have a minimum of 250 views assigned. Yes, it adds unnecessary credits that you have to pay, but that's the minimum.*** 12. Add your video, and you should be seeing those comments come in any time now! Moving on! Subscribers There is honestly nothing too special about this. I personally use SubXcess for this, purely because I can automate the process. 1. As I have said before, I do not want to cross post - and advertise my threads, however for this tutorial - I will link it as I know some of you have searching problems. (; Please Click here to go to my SubXcess iMacros script in which will get you a minimum of 500 subscribers a day! I have outlined everything within that thread, however I will make a few small pointers in which I didn't really show in the thread. 2. It's just logical thinking, that the lower you set your points to on SubXcess, the longer it will take to recieve your points. If you set it to 3 or 4, you will get a solid, steady drip feed subscribers train going on there. That means, with 3-4,000 SubXcess credits, you will get 1,000 Youtube subscribers. I personally don't believe that Subscribers massively boost your rankings, however I do know for a fact it is another mental thing for the random viewer. Which person would you naturally subscribe to - the person with 5,000 subscribers on Youtube or the person with 0? Views This one is probably the most asked question, and I believe everybody agrees with this one. This can be answered in so many different ways, but I will give you my personal opinion due to my videos ranking this way for the past 2 years. 1. You CAN in fact get a super solid ranking with Vagex/U2bviews/Hitleap alone. This is because the views are drip-fed, which means that you will slowly get your views, but they will be pushed to your video over a longer period of time. Instead of buying 50,000 views from a view provider, you can indeed push 20,000 views from the various free view providers that I just suggested but only get 500 views a day, but it will be a smooth, healthy increase. 2. On that subject, I highly suggest you buy from BigBuddy. His views have honestly, purely gave me the best results. Of course, you want the high retention views. You can find his thread by clicking here. If you are wondering what a high retention view is, it's purely what it sounds like. It means that the longer the person has watched your video, from start to finish, the higher your retention view. If your audience has watched it all the way to the very last second, that will be a 100% retention rate. This is pure gold in the eyes of Youtube's search, so I highly suggest them. 3. My final conclusion for views: If you have the money, I'd buy from BigBuddy and split your views onto various videos in which you have created to rank all of your videos. If you do not have the money, simply drip-feed your views view Vagex/U2Bviews/Hitleap to get a great ranking. It takes a bit longer, but patience is key! Designing I did not explain this at the top of my thread, however I think it's personally VERY important to have high quality designs on not only your Youtube channel, but your landing page in which you use. Make your videos the best quality, make your Youtube One Channel banner art high quality, make your avatar high quality, make sure you fill in your description on your channel, make sure you have your channel trailer set so that when someone comes to your page, it will autoplay. Do everything you possibly can to get a good ranking. It will pay off in the long run.
