I keep seeing these YT journey's on the forum where these guys open a new (completely whitehat) Youtube channel, then their channel just instantly explodes making hundreds per day, reporting that all the views are coming from related/suggested views. I've asked the question around the forum a couple times already, but haven't had much luck aside from being told to make a good thumbnail, and "choose good keywords", which I feel like I have worked very had at doing, but had no luck. I have a new channel I have been working on for the last month or so, with barely any views.. Most of the views I do have though are coming from Youtube search, and Reddit, with only 0.5% coming from related/suggested. I do however have another channel that I've had for a long time, which has nearly a million views total, and 1000+ subs. 30% traffic from search, 26% from external, and 15% from suggested. Maybe 15% is not that bad... But it looks like nearly all of that is coming from like 3 uploaded videos that I uploaded a long long time ago when I first created the channel. Those same videos continue to get a whole bunch of traffic from suggested. But in the last 2-3 months I started uploading a video a day, and it seems like almost all my new videos are getting nothing from suggested. Just mostly from YT/Google search. I wish I could find someone on here that could help me with understanding the related/suggested stuff better. Or maybe my IP/accounts/personal stuff is/are de-ranked/blacklisted or something from way back in the day when I was mass uploading blackhat stuff (and might have accidentally logged in to wifi on my cellphone).
