Hey guys, Ive tried vagex and a bunch of other stuff and sure it's gotten me views but that still has translated to zero profit. I see a lot of threads on here screaming for '20k likes' or '20k fake subs' or '50k views' and sure Ive tried my hand in it and even purchased views but it has done nothing but burn my money. sure my videos got 50k fake views but thats it. I have spent about a year doing this and have scraped together about 100 subs. most have come from real life connections, nothing from black hat. I dont see why people on here are even looking for '20k comments' or whatever as I dont see as it helped. I tried adding vagex comments but who cares if you have 20k fake comments on a video. my youtube channel are just comedy vlogs and my goal is to eventually build my fanbase largely and become successful like nigahiga so I can naturally profit off ads. I dont see any other ways to make money since the only other pathway Ive seen suggested on blackhat was stealing other people's videos but thats just gotten me banned on my test channels. 1-2 years of doing this and Im at 100 subs. My last hope is to try and find some bot to add contacts but I cant seem to find any. I see no point in all the 30k fake subscribers like everyone on here is clamoring for. what is the point if none of them will watch my videos when I upload them? It makes no sense for me so Ive tried to grow a group of people who will naturally want to subscribe and its gotten me no where.
