Hello BHW I was a member here from 2011 but lost my account and have being lurking since then. This is my first post on this account. I am genuinely curious. Me and a few friends are heading off to college and want to get into this impossible game. I have the editing skills and the personality to match. What I am confused with is what actually makes a success these days? Youtube has changed so much since I was on it in 2008. (I had 20,000 subscribers but my account was deleted) Plus back then it was so much more easy to get popular. So? What type of videos make youtubers go viral and garner them lots of subscribers. What sort of videos. How do these videos get so popular. Do big youtubers profit much from these videos.
