Just thought I'd share my method for getting massive views. It will likely end up with your video getting removed, so use throwaway accts and not your own. First, grab the titles of all the popular videos. I wrote a script to do this: Code: #popular video title scraper curl -A "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:18.104.22.168) Gecko/20070725 Firefox/22.214.171.124" -s "http://www.youtube.com/browse?s=pop&t=t&cr=US&p=[1-5]" >> ytpop.txt grep id=\"video-long-title ytpop.txt | sed -e 's/.*nofollow\">//g' -e 's/<\/a>//g' | sort -u > pop Now, add the contents of pop to your video desc. You could split these between several videos for max effect. This alone could get you 2000 views per day until some assclown flags you cause your video was softcore pr0n and not some shitty Twilight trailer. 20ish views a day at first, then I happened to get lucky... and unlucky in the same day: Conversions were decent considering my url was watermarked into the video and not linked in the info box Search Result Titles: Code: #search result video title scraper curl -A "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/20070725 Firefox/188.8.131.52" -s "http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=gaming&page=[1-20]" >> ytsearch.txt grep id=\"video-long-title ytsearch.txt | sed -e 's/.*nofollow\">//g' -e 's/<[^<>]*>//g' -e 's/\&/\&/g' -e 's/\"/\"/g' -e "s/\'/\'/g" | sort -u In this instance I am scraping video titles that show up when I search for 'gaming'. This could help you with niche stuff. Just for fun, I have a script that will harvest user names for your autofrienders and etc. Use it after you've scraped search results with the above script. Code: #username harvest grep video-from-username ytsearch.txt | sed -e 's/.*\">//g' -e 's/<\/span>//g' -e 's/<\/a>//g' | sort -u sed ftw!
