    Hi !
    Right now I have one youtube channel with 30 videos promoting different sites from different niches. From my experience, it seems as more videos/subscribers/views per channel you start to get kind of an authority that helps to rank your videos.

    But .. would it be better to instead of having 1 "general" channel to create a niche related channel ? Let's say that my channel name is "Brandon" but since I'm promoting "boats" Ishould create the channel "boats tv" ?

    The thing would be, instead of a "big" channel with all the videos it would be all divided in smaller channels, but each channel would be niche specific and more contextual relevant for each video.

    What do u think ? Thanks

    Personally I think separate channels is the way to go.
    If you have too many unrelated videos then people are less likely to subscribe IMO
    You can still provide links to other relevant videos in other channels.

    I also think that separate channels is a better option. Targeted audience, desired information for the viewer = more subscribers and views + money.
    Although if your niches can connect somehow, one big brand channel paired with an authority site will also work. Best option for the long run.

    Definitely separate. I always do 1 account per niche whether an account has 3 videos or 30 videos.

    You need to diversify because Youtube is raising the heat these days and trying to win back the site from spammers.

    So you need to spam better, faster, harder, more effectively, more accounts, more videos, and make YT hire more video reviewers until they go broke and can't afford to manually remove any more videos.

    I'm dead serious. Youtube is waging war against BH marketers and it's time that BH marketer wage war against Youtube. If they ban 1 video, upload 10 on 10 new accounts. Never back down. Never let those f##kers get the best of you.

    Appeal to everyone and you won't appeal to anyone.

    W130SN hit the nail on the head with this, your goal is to attract subscribers and the best way to do that is by producing quality content that your audience finds extremely relevant.

    Do we really need to "spam harder" though? Things are indeed changing on YouTube, but my results are all over the place right now and I can't figure out if there is method to the madness.

    I've been doing affiliate marketing and I've noticed some marketers are establishing themselves at the top of SERPs, but in the example I'm looking at right now, the only video ahead of this video with thousands of backlinks has... drumroll... ZERO backlinks!

    And there was my own experience too.

    I recently had the #1 ranking video on Google and Youtube for one of the more popular launches in June and it was nothing more than a rich 18 minute training video on the product with standard optimization in Title and Description (i.e. nothing different from what everyone else is doing really). No backlinks to the video BUT it was embedded on my product review page in its own post. That's it though. If I could have a report from Big G telling me why that video did so well, I would be very happy camper, but for now all I know for sure is there was nothing unnatural about how I made it and ranked it.

    And by the way my video has held firm at that #1 spot. I've never had a video hold down the #1 position as well as this one has; damn thing seems like it's STUCK there.

    Oh and I created a YouTube channel just for this product btw. So I guess that puts me in the various channels group but I'm trying to expand my main channel lately for my branded authority site.

    Thanks for all the answers (just checked now ..damn daily notifications still not working in BHW ..will change for instant notifications)



    Yes it makes sense to have a channel per niche , my only "fear" is that having different channels with just some videos would never get the "authority" like one big channel.
    Links connecting the videos & channels is a good ideia



    Right . In my case usually it's 1 up to 3 videos related to a niche= site .



    Google is waging a war to everybody that tries to take a pie (ranking and not paying ads) from their main source of income adwords (around something like 95% of their income)


    If you don't have all you need to spam hard and continually spam harder (like myself), I'ld say that is better to spam smarter and don't get caught :)



    Quality content, engaging videos that's key .. it's better than a thousand backlinks, bought commentaries/subscribers/likes/dislikes .. Completely agree on that. And sometimes just a couple of hours around the subject and you pop up with a nice video idea that can work , without spending a lot of money.



    If you have a high natural retention views, I'm pretty sure that will help a lot to rank... but then it depends a lot of the keyword you are trying to rank, the niche , the channels that are competing, the videos age , etc
    1 min video reviews are in top 3, for long time, for medium keywords, that are pure junk .. a lot of factors in the game.

    I'm going to disagree with everyone if you actually want traffic from within Youtube and don't plan on doing the "spam and rank the video in Google' game. If you really want to build a Youtube brand, make one channel with different categories. Boom bap done and targeted. There is definitely an authority factor in place and a freshness factor for your overall channel that accumulates as each of your videos begins to succeed.

    So you mean ..just create a channel with some name/brand and then a category per niche ?
