    Hey people. Alright so I have a gaming channel on YouTube (I know, like millions of others) and I feel like my content is pretty good considering how new it is. My intro is professional, my thumbnails are attractive, and I feel like my commentary is OK. Obviously this will get better with time and experience. But my videos just are not getting views. I know this is because I'm competing with millions of others and the big youtubers who are already well established. So I know its near impossible to get ranked for videos these guys are already putting out. But I also know this is what I like and I'm trying not to get discouraged. I've read around numerous forums and I'm saw people saying youtube is to saturated now with gaming ect. I mean I know it is, but I still believe there's a chance for newtubers. Just like anything, competition is always there. So now that that's out of the way, here's something I've been considering.

    I've actually already saw some threads about this earlier but I wanted to make my own to get specific answers or advice. Basically I know fiverr uses bots to draw in traffic, even though some of them claim white hat seo and bring in real people. Who knows, some of this may be true for some of the gigs on fiverr. Either way, my main question is should I be getting some of these gigs? I'm not a partner therefore I'm not monetizing any of my videos, so I don't think YouTube will be after me.

    Basically what I'm wondering is, would it be a good idea to use some of these traffic gigs to get some traffic coming to my channel to help it rank higher for future subscribers and videos? So say I just use it for a while to bring my channel some views and hopefully that would help it rank higher and bring some real people in also, then I can just cut out the gigs and hopefully start rolling in real subscribers for the future there on out. Thanks for anyone who has taken the time to read this and also any other input on bringing in some traffic for those who have helped or given advice to similar situations like this.

    Fiver traffic are bots. Not real people and that will not convert at all.

    You can buy Youtube views on here and do better.

    Alright thanks for the replies. Anyone care to give some suggestions about how to promote elsewhere? Heard of reddit, but also hear its hard to not come off as advertising your channel and can get you a bad rep. Also in response to donor, I'll check out the forum here to see how that's done here.

    Also, I'm aware that the traffic would be bots. But wouldn't that help it ranked higher in some of my videos which would lead to other people seeing my content since they will be able to find it?

    Most of the guys that sell traffic on fiverr use hitleap software to provide it. It will not help.

    Reddit is a good source of traffic for this type of thing - but they frown on 'over self promotion' only 10% of everything you post can be your own content. Or something around that percentage. But still a good source particularly if your content is good.

    No.

    Take it from someone who tried it already: it isn't going to help anything.

    Alright I'll try that out thanks.

    I'll start to become more active on Reddit and see where it leads.

    Anymore suggestions from anyone else would be great.
