    I've got a video that probably isn't actually "viral" but it's going on 500k totally legit views. Anyway, this vid gets between 3k - 8k views each and everyday. I've noticed its been slowing gaining steam like a snowball rolling down a mountain.

    I'm wondering how many of you guys have videos with a million or more views? Does traffic continue to gain speed as the views increase?

    :wtf:

    Definitely depends on the kind of video. I had one going insanely viral after a little initial push, now is getting like 10k views/day but for some days it has got 100k-200k/day. It was a trending topic, and in this case YT tends to give a boost to newer videos, rotating the SERPs often.

    What kind of video is it yours? I bet you are getting tons of related/suggested video views and fewer views from searches.

    It's like word of mouth, but online it comes across as "activity" that other people see. That's how it spreads.
