    I uploaded a Harlem Shake video and it got only 3 views! Can anyone please tell me how to make it get more views without buying services?

    Thanks.

    Have you been sleeping in a cave?
    Harlem shake is OLD news... You were supposed to make a video a month ago.

    What did you do to the video to make you think it would go viral? Please don't tell me all you did was upload it and expect it to...

    Who has eyeballs on your video? What forums did you poke with your video? Sorry but people aren't going to magically come to watch your video. You need to be on a popular forum at the right time and release the video, or you could be on a popular forum at the right time and boost your video alongside the natural views it gets.

    Hello that idea is perfect for me, but what are some forums that will have interest in youtube videos? Thanks.

    You need to MAKE it go viral. Things don't just go viral for no reason. Either you have to be featured on some high traffic blog or get loads of facebook users to like the video etc etc. You have to make things happen for yourself.

    It doesn't go viral like that. You have to make it go viral. Or semi-viral at least. Then it'll start to pick up.

    Avoid making it go viral because you will end up getting more dislikes than Likes since the video sucks.

    Reasons on why it sucks

    1) The video quality is very poor
    2) During first 15 seconds those people in the background are smiling which spoils the whole video
    3) Nothing Unique

    Are you sure you remembered to tick the "Turn my Shit Video into a Global Phenomenon" checkbox before you uploaded ?

    First of all, you're waaaayyy too late. Second, it looks kind of gay in there. Third, you must have some clean toilets, as I would never touch the floor of a public restroom.

    It would be too easy if everybody was to upload a Harlem Shake video and went viral right off the bat, am I right?
