    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.

    Good content within the videos. It is all about being unique and setting yourself apart from the rest of the youtubers trying to be something. An example being Chris Crocker and Damien Walters. Look them up.

    I made a video similar to him that helped me gain subscribers! It was a parody tho!
    He isn't half as popular as he used to be.

    I wouldn't have the reseources and equipment as top youtubers would have.
    Vitaly has studios and crew members. Crazy the effort in those.

    Luck and Marketing to the right audience.

    pranks are a hot thing right now, most of them are fake - with the amount they are earning they just hire actors n shit and make it look real. They bank on it everytime easily because of the amount of views.

    but one day pranks are gonna die off and new fad will come. One of these niggas are gonna die from a prank - all of the gone wrong ones get views and go viral lol.
    Look at OckTv people pulling out knives and guns on them n shit.

    Still tho dude. Well done. You might be making as much as top youtubers but your making more than I am!
    I was wondering could you PM me your channel just to see your content and quality.
    It would help me a lot.

    People wanna have some fun, so that's it. Take most popular channels and see what content they have ... you wont find much of a value in those videos (pewd, etc).

    But to be a good youtuber, you have to believe in what you do and also hope that your videos will stay in fashion.

    Honestly, I feel that with making somewhat quality/entertaining videos (if you really want a niche just go gaming or pranks or family vlogs), engaging with your fans (key: social media!), some un-aggressive advertising, collaborating with other YouTubers, and making somewhat quality videos, while keeping consistent uploads, are a all-in-one method to get big on YouTube today :) As you said, you have the personality for it, so just go for it!

    It's crazy some of these youtube vloggers. Making like 50k-350k with vlogs that no offence are boring as hell.
    I thinks it's amazing what they are doing but crazy at the same time.
