    Hello guys!

    So I've made 2 YouTube channels 2 months ago. One for daily vlogs and one for funny rants and videos.
    I really am working so hard on both channels, being funny, customizing good thumbnails, nice channel design and quality videos, but I have a problem letting people discover my channel! I do put keywords and I'm always in page 1 in the results, but that doesn't even bring me any views.
    I have tried playing with social media like facebook and twitter but I really have no idea how to attract people there. Many people say "facebook groups" but what group am I supposed to join for funny rants? I looked all over. all groups have 10 members +-.
    And as for reddit, I have no idea how it works there. I posted my link on the "funny" subreddit, 2 minutes later, my thread was no longer in the "news" section because too many people are posting their own content. So its nearly impossible for people to view your thread.

    I don't mind giving away my channel, since everything I do is 100% legit. No fake subscribers/views/likes. Just PM me if interested.

    Would love some suggestions! Thanks! =)

    It will take some time. You have to wait. If your channel is really interesting and legit then you will get tons of views on your video after it is featured on YouTube homepage. In my case my channel was featured on Homepage after a year of creation and these days I get around daily 40k-50k views on my videos. So keep working bro.....

    That's very motivating to hear! It is just lacking my motivation a little bit when my only viewers for the whole 2 months are only my real life friends.
    But I will keep working hard. Thanks!

    If anyone has a way to boost the process with some tricks, I will still appreciate hearing!

    If the content is general, then you will likely stay lost in the sea of other vlogs and "funny" channels. Do you have a sub-niche? Are you catering to them or are you trying to go for too wide of a grab? Check out smaller subreddits and post there.

    I'm actually going for more general topics. And surprisingly my ranking are always on the top with the big YouTubers. Like for example I did the same rant subject as Tobuscus, even with the same title, and I'm right under him on the ranking.
    For example:
    If you write "Musicians Rant", you'll find me #1.
    "Babies rant" - #4.
    "AutoCorrect rant" - #4 right under Tobuscus' video.

    FadiFlashi I just saw your channel. You have just started. No need to worry my friend you will grow slowly. All the big YouTubers you know were just like you when starting. You shouldn't worry about traffic right now. Just focus on creating good content and focus on making your videos more interesting that people would love to share it.

    Did you ever considering commenting on other popular yt videos that are in your niche. I am not saying to spam just be active in the comment section on other popular videos and people will go and check your channel.

    This is one way to start growing, you have ton of ways and if you combined them without spamming you might have a chance to make something out of it if your channel is awesome as you are describing it.

    P.S. the vlog shit will not work until you have large base of followers on your yt channel.

    What kind of comments do you mean? Because I never really enter channels through comments... if someone really writes something extremely good, I would just "thumb up" his comment and move on. So I'm not sure how good that is, but I'll still do it.

    And about the daily vlogging channel, I know. This one is more of a "fun and challenging" channel for myself to remember my life later on :p

    Thanks for the reply

    there is a youtube commenting skype group in Youtube section!
    ask for some comments there after joining the group!
    also try ranking your Video for targeted keywords!
