    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).

    I don't know if you are talking about my journey, but it didn't explode "instantly". As you said, thumbnails are very important, keyworks depend of your niche. The beginning is the hardest moment. Just do high quality content and try to get in recommendation of bigger channel (not too big) like 40K-50k channels with tags.
    I wish you the best !
