    Hello Black Hatts,

    I started with YT in golden-2007, where I uploaded my first video which got about 40k views :)

    But unfortunately, with the strong development of IT, social networks, changing the algorithms and fighting with spammers it has become harder and harder to become views & manipulate the system, even with good keywords.

    So I started a small experiment and uploaded 40 different videos in order to get some visitors to my CPA's affiliate links.

    Videos with this specification got views:

    NO Links in description
    Short and clear title
    HD (non HD got some views too, but not as mach as these)
    Just max. 5-6 suitable keywords of your niche
    File name with the most important keyword of your niche

    I recommend using Google Keyword tool and. Adobe After Effects for making HD's.

    What about the (affiliate) links?
    *1 option: url shortener (or your own shortened URL from your domain)
    *2 option: just a cool/rememberable domain

    Then get a cool background(or make your own in Photoshop) and download some nice fonts from dafont.com and just WRITE your URL on it.
    Save as 1280x720 .JPG for a 720px video :)

    NICHE.

    do not limit you to one country and one language!
    I experimented with Google Translator and found very nice keywords for some products in other smaller countries and It can be a goldmine!

    So just some thoughts from my brain..
    maybe I'll write lil bit more in the future :)
    Thank you BHW, Thank you for your attention

    +sorry for my english

    HD won't make a difference, and from my experience stuffing shit loads of keywords works the best. This past week Ive had a video go from 0 to 58,000 views with the help of a like/favorite bot. The title/thumbnail is the absolute most important aspect of the video.

    I've noticed if you have the same amount of views for a certain keyword, your HD video will rank a little higher. Makes sense, Youtube is assuming your HD video will look better.

    Likes/Favorites/Comments have a greater influence.
