This method uses a combination of creating an RSS feed to send @messages at twitter users that have tweeted about your niche keyword, using the power of Yahoo Pipes and Twitterfeed with good old Google Alerts to mix in some valuable content to semi-hide the spam. Method: First of all create a throw away Twitter account (don't use a needed one), make it seem legit and choose an image of a person as a profile pic. Next setup a couple of Google Alerts RSS feeds on your niche, i'm not going into detail on this as their are guides on Google to help. Next add these two RSS feeds into Twitterfeed and set the advanced settings to Update frequency=Every 30 mins and 5 for post new updates, Post content=Title Only and keep post link box checked using bit.ly, in the post suffix box you are going to put a trend tag e.g #diablo3. Then make sure both feeds are connected to your created Twitter account. Now wait for at least 48 hours before taking the next step, this is to not make the new account look suspicious and keep under the Twitter radar and to also add some camouflage to the spamming that is to ensue. Check that the posts are being successfully posted by Twitterfeed into your Twitter account. Head over to the link below (you may need to log into your yahoo mail account) Code: http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.info?_id=6000e931babcb308f0c6d0c0e2568b56 In the searchterm box type your niche keyword and in the advertisement box type your message to send at the Twitter users to hopefully get Youtube views. Now i would not enter a message that is directly asking them to view your video, you should rather ask them a relevant question about your niche and stick the youtube url on the end of the message with a popular trend tag for your niche. Also do not make the message too long or you may get errors and try to use the shortened youtube url found under share with your message. example: Say your niche is Skyrim, you could put a message like this. Code: Have you heard when the Skyrim DLC is coming out? http://youtu.be/e_OftY7XWm8 #skyrimdlc Once you have complete both boxes, click the Run Pipe button. Make sure the RSS feed displays a list of Twitter users with the @ in front and your message afterwards. If you see nothing then maybe your niche keyword is too specific, try to choose a widely used generic keyword for your niche. If everything is displaying ok then right click get as RSS feed and copy the link address to your clipboard. Go to to Twitterfeed and add the Yahoo Pipes RSS feed, and set the advanced settings to Update frequency=every 30 minutes and 1 for post new updates, Post content=title only and uncheck the post link box, leave everything else blank. Make sure again it is connected to your Twitter account. Wait 24 hours and check that everything is running smoothly in your Twitter account. Adjust if necessary. That's it! I have used this method in the past to generate traffic to my websites and have experimented with how aggressive you can go with the @ messaging. And with the settings above in Twitterfeed I currently have a Twitter account that is over 12 months old which is still sending @ messages to Twitter users who type in my niche keyword. I am running a small scale campaign just to test the effectiveness of this method with gaining Youtube views, and probably thanks to me now adding a popular trend tag I am beginning to see a trickle of views on my videos. Implement, Test And Scale Up!
