    I have some reasonably popular videos on YouTube, and I get them popular by posting them on Cheezburger sites (mainly Failblog, even though the videos aren't "fail") and Buzzfeed, and then using sites like addmefast to give the submissions hundreds or thousands of Facebook shares. Cheezburger/Buzzfeed and/or their automated system then think that these videos that have been posted on their website must be really popular and well-received because all of the sharing from their pages on to Facebook, and so they feature the post on their website and usually post them to their own Facebook feeds as well.

    My question to you is, what websites can be tricked into promoting video submissions in this way? I've tried Fark and Break, but neither featured the videos I posted?and that's even after I did 1,500+ Facebook shares of the Break submission.
