    I recently uploaded a video to youtube, that had been getting less than 50 views per day :( ,when I noticed the stats shoot up !

    What happened was my video has now become the top "related video" for a very popular video and I am getting the views from there. Now over 1000 per day :eek:

    I had not monitized this as it was just an experiment, but looking to do so now !

    Just goes to show that you do not always need to rank well to get views..

    The views graph is attached.

    it sucks for me because I have a channel where ALL my vidz won't appear in related 99% of traffic is from sharing ONLY on facebook etc...

    So that's why I had to make a new channel for extra promotion with annotation linking to my official .

    The video was in a different category to mine, but loosely connected. Stil lthere and still getting views. Just lucky I guess. ;)
