    I've made a few viral videos in the past, but it seems like they took a couple years to actually start generating a lot of traffic. Do you guys have any adsense friendly suggestions on how to safely rank/promote/get traffic on these videos fast?

    I thought about buying HR views but it just seems too risky lately with all the stuff going on with YT updates and YT providers going down the drain. Plus, it seems impossible with the views because Youtube also expects likes/comments and I can't figure out how to get the different providers to sync up together.

    Why not participate in forums or social networks with people that share the same interest?

    Forums are fine, but I'm worried about looking like a spammer. Then I don't know if I should tell people if it's my video, or act like it's someone elses video I'm talking about.

    As for social media I'm stuck because I don't have a fanbase of any sort and I don't know how to get one :( The most I can do right now with social media is adding a handful of groups related to the niche I am using and posting on them. But even with a group of like 1000 people, I only end up getting like 8 views (when it is infact good content).

    I even tried out stumbleupon by removing and re-adding one of my videos that had accumulated 50,000 views and a lot of good comments/likes (and barely any dislike) and submitted to stumbleupon and got like nothing basically.

    I have high retention views, They all come with comments/ likes/ favs/ subs no need to buy extras.
    And I never had a video get banned because of my method.

    1. Make a video that can be viral.
    2. Fake it a bit with comments, likes, social signals. You don't need fake views for that step if your video is cool and you know what to do in the next step.
    3. Promote to the natural audience.
