    Can anyone provide insight about my video? It has been consistently bringing in $100 per month for the past 2 years, but in November it hit a wall. Monthly views went from 150k to 10k.

    I assume youtube just stopped promoting my video, but is there anything I can do to bring it back?

    Here it is if it helps.

    The forum won't let me post a link, but if you google

    Don't scare the baby

    I'm the top one if it helps.

    Thank you.

    Well posting on a large/popular forum and getting folks to do a Google search and click on the link of your video from that search might help... lol :why:

    Awesome. Yeah bud, after that video has made me a couple grand and reached 3.5m views, my master plan has culminated into finding "Black Hat World"... a forum of people who just happen to know something about youtube video revenue, to post my video so that YOU can drive my views. Pure genius.

    Calm down Buddy just giving a bit of insight as you requested since you seem to be clueless to what the problem suddenly is, even after achieving such stellar numbers.
    I was just saying those organic searches might help with the reemergence of recapturing your throne ...GET IT NOW?:p
    Just havin a bit of fun is all I'm doing here Buddy. Happy Valentine's to you and Yours:mad:

    Probably your video was located on "suggested videos" and now has been replaced by a younger video. It´s a natural process on youtube , otherwise the viral vids would always be the same ones. This has happened to me plenty of times, and It really sucks.

    If you accept my tip, do not try to buy views to bring it back to life, because you are under risk of getting it banned. Just reupload and try to make it viral again.

    Great advice!
    Also, I'd highly recommend promoting that site on as many video media platforms as possible.
    YouTube may be the largest, but it's certainly not the only one.

    Sometimes videos just need an extra boost to keep on rolling and having views. Find a way to promote your video and generate traffic.
