    I was thinking today that I have been leaving a big chunk of Youtube traffic out. The Playlist crossed my mind and I thought damn they get just as much views as a regular video.

    So how hard would it be to upload 5 or 6 videos of a CPA ringtone offer or whatever and create a playlist. No, not just create a playlist of the 5 videos that has been uploaded, but using all kind of music videos and mp3's of a specific artist.

    Now take the 5 videos and place them in between each of those videos in the playlist. Making sure we put our cpa videos towards the beginning of the playlist.

    I don't know maybe do this like 10 times with different accounts and using a variety of keywords. It seems like it would work...

    Oh, and has any one tried boosting views on a playlist??? If we can boost a playlist and it moves up the search we can pull in more views to our videos. They would be real views because our 5 videos would be in the beginning of the playlist.

    I'm just thinking and sharing my thoughts. I don't know if this works or not.

    Never tried it, but I don't think the playlist feature gets used much. I never use it. But I think it COULD be a great idea.

    I have no clue how the playlist feature works (although I should considering I am a YT marketer) but I do know that playlists get the number one spot for many searches, so there definitely is potential. Try it out

    Oh yeah people use it, I use it when i want to keep auto playing some music. Not only that, but you will see a playlist coming up in a normal search along side regular videos.

    Playlists marketing is huge! I use it every time I set up an account and upload videos and it responsible for a large part of my views and traffic. There are some super cool things you can do with playlists. If you use proper VEO your video will show up at the top of many play list. If you find niches with very few playlists then start making some, you'll notice that within a few weeks there will be tons of playlists and your video will be at the top of all of them if you do it right. Its all about VEO

    @ Iggster do you know if a large amount of views will push your playlist higher in the search results??? I faked 1,000 views but I really haven't had time to test any of it yet.

    Number of views have nothing to do with it at least not the testing Ive done. Since many of the videos that were created in the playlist have higher views than mine and mine are always at the top. I think they put the highest ranked videos at the top. And again ranking is about VEO for the most part.

    No I did not make up the term VEO wish I did, that be pretty cool. Actually the term was made up by Mike Long if Im not mistaken who did the launch for Mystery's product from the pick up artist that aired on VH1 a few years back. But correct- Video Engine Optimization.

    Just like SEO its about keywords and where you place them. Think of each video account like a subdomain and each video page like a webpage,if you follow the basic principles of SEO and apply them the same way to videos you will rule You tube for the most part.

    This will get you first page on youtube for niches that have less than 50,000 competing videos if not more, So far the method Ive been using has been flawless. Also It will guarantee you a video Icon on Google, you'll still need to get back links to the video if you want good google ranking,

    Here's a few a tips- lets say you have a keyword phrase and you want the video to show up in google first page, first get the page rank of the first few sites, you can use goodkeywords free tool and select link popularity, once you find the page rank then go to a web2.0 property like youtube or viddler that has a higher page ranking, you will be borrowing some of the weight of that web property when you upload your video and use proper VEO.

    If the competing web pages for that search term are weak you can easily get your video Icon on the first page. The trick is keeping it there, you need to get as many backlinks ASAP. Also I noticed that its much easier when there are no videos yet on that search term. I think google likes to give its users a video as an option. TrueVEO search engine is a great place to practice your VEO skills, if your videos are not getting top ranking on trueveo then theres a flaw in your VEO.

    Ive got some underground video tutorials on all this and more, Ive been working on for a while as part of a course Ive been trying to release but keep getting side tracked but it has some super super cool shit that will have you killing on you tube, if you happen to be marketing sexy vids you'll be in for a real treat. I would love to be able to give it away for free to BHW I know I owe you guys big time, but someone hacked several of key accounts last month and I lost 60% of my traffic. And Ive got child support and my entire income is from you tube, however I'm willing to provide some extraordinary value for dirt dirt cheap. PM me if you want to learn more. Hope I'm allowed to do this not up to speed with BHW Rules.
    either way I hope some of this helps

    It is good but Google has done their best not to make it better ranked than videos just for no reason. YOu could rank a single video just as easily or even easier.
