    Hey all. Been a bit of a lurker up until now, but I just started a fresh YouTube channel (in the top 5 countdown niche, if you could even call it that).
    I've given myself a month or two before I give up on YouTube forever, as I've been doing it for about 6 years now without any noticeable results.

    My plan at the moment:
    - make and upload a new video every 2-3 days, if the channel gains traction, up this to daily videos.
    - spam comments on popular channels. The reputation of this channel doesn't bother me too much as long as it's pulling in views.
    - use popular keywords on my videos and then stuff them with views from a traffic exchange to try and boost their ranking.
    - post links to videos on facebook groups.


    If anyone has any recommendations or wants to help me out, drop a comment.

    Also sorry if this is in the wrong sections mods. Feel free to move.

    Spamming comments on YouTube has gotten them ghosted temporarily.
    Anyone know how long this is for, or what the comment limit is?

    Channel is currently at 1 sub.

    Traffic exchange appears to have gotten my videos views frozen.

    Crosslink it to a similar Facebook page and an Instagram page. Don't limit yourself to YouTube. Use redirections to get traffic. Growing Insta and FB are much easier.

    I wouldn't spam people Youtube channel videos with any link as they auto get flagged for spam, maybe posting controversial comments would be better on someones video?

    Share the videos on Reddit, mate.
    Like, if you are doing dogs and cats vids, there are helluva subreddits out there.

    If you are doing funny ones, there's a bigass subreddit for it.

    Goodluck with your journey!

    Quick update. Comments are no longer ghosted. Going to start posting them at a more steady pace and change up the wording on each one. Also going to target reddit, and try bump in a few upvotes of my own to get them rolling.

    I have just subscribed to your channel.

    I am thinking of starting up my own daily blog channel. Can you pm the backlinker SEO co. you used .

    Thanks

    I think you put yourself in unrealistic situation. It will give you heavy burden.
    my tiny advice is don't spam or use Youtube system because you'll lose the game, your Channel will banned and it make you more sad.
    I myself worked with more than top 10 list video and current level is 70k subs.
    it happened not in a month. I worked on it since November 2014 with total view 6 mil little bit.
    just to give little insight

    I also don't think doing youtube this way is generally advisable for people unless they are building completely legitimate channels with high quality original content. If you are just using the same videos that others are circulating you could potentially jeopardize all your earnings. Sure you don't care about the reputation, and that's why you need to be doing actual workable spam on scale.

    If you're a real player, and can get the original content then you can do a lot better, but if you expect to successfully engage in general spam practices using 1 account over a long term on youtube these days, then you could be in for a real rude awakening. I'm not saying nobody ever makes it happen this way, or am I?

    Despite my views on reputation, I'm only uploading original content, albeit in a saturated format.
    I could have probably worded my original post a lot better.
    Posting comments which advertise myself on other videos comes with downvote repercussions that are unavoidable, however as long as I'm growing from these it doesn't bother me too much. Since I'm doing this with no investment, I can't buy a paid comment upvoter which makes things more difficult. I also don't know many other methods to gain subscribers or traffic, so any other ideas or suggestions (from anyone) are very much appreciated, and I'll try anything. :)

    Sounds good method dude. Thanks.
    How much video are available in your store? Please clear first. That is need to suggest you for improving your subscriber. If you wanted to popular your channel then keyword selection is undoubtedly a great step. First, fixed excellent keyword so that the subscribers may find it easily. If you post your targeted links in fb pages or groups then must you need to do it in exact places, so that the traffics don't feel disgusting and they can take it positively. If anyone post it in irreverent places then he may get more and more negative comments. That's so much harmful for channel reputation. Salute your targeted methods but you need to describe that briefly.

    Hey Switch, fellow Youtuber here. I've started doing Youtube after my cpa journey. Luckily, i was able to make friends with small youtubers 20k subs youtubers at the time. it was rare to see many 1 mill sub channels. Although i hated adsense, you make decent money by raking in million of views per month.

    One of them was really interested in working with me if i can help him grow and make him money. So I did, 3-4 years ago. We were able to grow his channel to a million subs in a matter of a year. I had channels (yeah, we had more than one) making $20K-$40k a month from youtube alone. Outside that it was the brand deals, selling merchandise and networking, that's where the money really is.

    The point im trying to make is that Youtube is a great way to make a passive income takes time to build it up but if you know how to bring traffic to it, the faster you'll able to test on and scale effectively.
    Are you bringing 1mill views a month? You are already making money. My current CPM for my channels within the same niche is avg $8 CPM. Youtube takes 45% from that. CPM can be a lot higher or lower, I've seen up to $100 CPM ads, insane what advertisers pay sometimes.

    Say you bring 1.000.000 "Monetizable Views" x $8 CPM = $8000 x 55% = $4400 Your Rev per month.

    Not all views are monetizable all thanks to those we call: "The AdSkippers" and "The AdBlockers"

    To be safe always assume that at least 50% of your views will be monetizable.

    Here are some simple things you need to make sure you have/do:

    - Original Good Quality Content (a.k.a at least entertaining)
    - Good and Relevant SEO!
    - Good Engagement! (Watch Time/Retention > Likes > Shares > Comments )
    - Pray to the all mighty Red Play Button to share your videos over everyone else's who is in your niche.
    - Over all: CONSISTENCY is the key on youtube

    Funny I shall reveal I am also have a couple of channels doing them "TOP'" videos. Anyways, I don't recommend commenting on other channel if spam is what you intend, just be very social about your comments, engage in other channels instead of promoting. People will read your comment and follow you regardless, just have something nice to say or share related to the video.

    I wouldn't do traffic exchange any longer. There were some test channels I had under some traffic exchanging sites. One of them got all it's views shaved off while the other got banned. There were no foorprints. And Yes i used proxies i'm not retarded i've been in the IM game for a really long time. Thank you

    I hope that answers any questions and hopefully make some things a little more obvious before anyone asks anything stupid. (sorry im very sarcastic, im not insulting)

    By the way I actually wrote that with 2 purposes to help the OP and anyone interested.

    EDIT: I forgot to mention, there is a thing about comments most people miss it. By default, every channel is set to show top comments from users with 500+. Hope that gives you some ideas

    Uploaded my 4th video. My most popular video got dislike botted a heap which unfortunately messed up the little ranking that I had.

    I'm struggling. If anyone can help me grow, hit me up. Since I'm doing no investment, I can't invest in YouTube ads, which would be the easiest way to go viral.
