Hello BHW, As you all know Youtube has changed the formula of the way to be featured on the front page. Before, all you need is tons of views in a short period of time. But now that cannot get you on the front page. I would like to ask everyone's opinion on how exactly can you meet the requirement to be on the front page? Of course you need some good amount of views, however, does Youtube looking for a certain degree of "likes", "favorite" or "share" to be featured on the front page? Does it depend on how many views are coming from different websites and social media? What about retention? Look at the front page examples right now below: *They both are on the front page as 10/18/2012. This video has only 200 likes with 106k views.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-LEY2rO5Sl4&feature=share&list=LP4qRk91tndwg This video has 900 likes with only 47k views.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EVkfNUxRh7g&feature=share&list=LP4qRk91tndwg So back to the topic, what is the significant elements that Youtube determines what video can be featured on the front page? In addition, it comes to an interesting point that I was thinking, if I "purchase" the elements listed below all together from some providers, would I be able to hit the front page?: * 500,000 views * 1,000 likes * 500 comments (not sure if it has impact on ranking or not?) * 2000 favorite (not sure either if this can has impact on ranking, especially you cannot see the favorite on the video stat, it always shows 0) Do you believe by these elements, the video would be able to hit the front page? Please tell me your thought. Cheers!
