    Folks (mods)?

    Instead of searching this forum endlessly for ideas for optimization, could a sticky be setup?
    There are a lot of common YT things that could be posted that are being asked repeatedly.

    The thread should be for standard practice YT optimization and SEO - ASSUMING you have a channel and are already contributing content to it.

    Things like :

    - buying views (when and why?)
    - buying comments (when and why?)
    - key words/tags optimization
    - external links, what not to do etc.

    only issue is, this stuff changes really fast (comments, views, tactics etc...) stickies would quickly get out of date

    I would update the sticky with new information. Most of the common SEO things / WH methods dont really, but the BH stuff can certainly change quick.

    I've gotta agree with Seth. A lot of the stuff you mentioned goes out of date quickly. The basic white hat onpage SEO remains legit, but everyone knows that by now. In terms of buying likes/views/comments and external linking, this stuff is regularly changing.

    Everyone does not know or recall the common things that should or should not be done.

    I cite myself as an example - I have a YT account created in 2006 and I have 50 million + views, but there are things that are NOT obvious to everyone.

    - eg FAIR USE
    - eg. AGED accounts.
    - ADSENSE combining accounts
    - IP addresses and how they can affect your performance (even if white hat)
