    The settings were nicely done and the video quality would be enough to be 1080p.

    How strong fake views/subs affect monetization process? i mean if i put f.e. 500 subs and 2k watch hours, gain naturally rest of required standard, ask yt for monetization can i expect they will accept it? Is it any chance to get accepted using only black hat methods?
    cheers

    Does the video age matter for ranking?

    Im looking into starting a niche site so I have been doing a lot of research I came across this guy on youtube (Lazy ass stoner) seen his videos years ago but he had a few new ones so I figured I would watch them, in particular, his one titled ( 4 Page Niche Blog Making $1k+/Month [CASE STUDY] ) in the video he shows a youtube channel he has associated with the website (Fresh Affirmations) the channel has 4 videos 52k subscribers and the best video has 3.2 Million views. Would you assume he just pumped a lot of fake views to help boost these videos or is this organic growth or some crazy strategy

    I generally stay within the rules of Youtube, only simply boosting videos at the times of posting.
    You mess with youtube you might get bite you might not. I dont, so I cant say much on the matter.
    Also I didnt see you post :p

    I send ASAP to boost the youtube videos ranking. If your going for CTR or CPA having a higher ranking early would help long term.
    The later a video exist on youtube. The More stable its place on the ranking becomes. AKA old videos if good STAY high and are only challenge by new videos. Old videos that end up Low on ranking, Stay low.

    I suggest you read up on how youtube's algorithum works for greater detail.

    CTR is based in your content and niche positivity.
    To be frank, make good content that does a "Job" and youtube and your CTR will see the video as valid.
    Something, as with all things in life, is Valid when is does a Job and succeeds consistently and continuously.
    Rather that job is making a person laugh, teaching a skill, or portraying a adventure.

    Then directing that story or ect. to tellt the person viewing to "click through for more, completion, or assistance" to increase CTR.

    Wink* :p

    i push for 4k and 60fps on all videos. at the very least 60fps on 1080p

    It would depend on your source for your fake views/subs. hopefully they are legit. Having a 1 to 4 ratio would be my suggestion. I merely use fakes numbers for a boost as with all social media.

    Yes, see above answer for more.

    Good content usually isn't automatable by a pc because its a creative.
    With that as the focus. I generally manually post.

    Yup, I dont know that term. MSN.

    Because he is aware of making money online, I'd say its quite possible.
    If anything he may have strong content and simply have boosted some of it. More so theres no telling if he is actually making that cash or just fronting nice and hard.

    See above posts.
    short answer. no.

    While the likelihood is very low it isn't un heard of.
    Example silent film get Alot of views with next to no sound.

    what It comes down to is "keeping the attention of the viewer" If you can do that better with OUT sound, then your video will win.

    I have two channels on youtube that were demonetized because according to youtube, their content was repetitive and either contributed nothing of value, which is not true. The only real problem is that I made the videos with loquendo. If I delete all the videos and start uploading original material without loquedo, is it possible that youtube activates monetization again?

    I want to know your opinion about this.

    I guess my content falls under "Portrating and adventure" type, i get good watchtime, good retention, average 7 minutes

    however im paranoid that my content will be hit by the new FTC rule by the lunatics on COPPA, theres other people talking about this already, you can look it up

    basically, they will disable notifications and comments from channels that are affected by this. they say "video by video basis". the rules are so fucking grey, nobody knows exactly whats going on, but the thing is, any content that will be considered "targeted to kids" will be marked by this thus it will get no comments and no notifications, so the motivation will disappear for anyone that gets hit by this. videos without comments and notifications will not rank properly. but not only this, u also lose personalized ads, so u will be making peanuts. this will kill so many chanenls. my channel is animation niche, some guy here told me i will be allright on this niche, but i think he is wrong, i think im under big risk

    i tried switching my content up, i made a darker video, with reference to adult film (not porn, just cinema), etc, i worked hard. and i made a thread with results:


    first 24 hours average time:
    -new video: 54 seconds
    -previous video: 8:50 seconds

    first 24 hour views:
    -new video: 3k views
    -previous video: 50k views

    first 24 hours CTR:
    -new video: 3%
    previous video: 6.8%

    video is pretty mcuh dead at this point, i have set it on private. it doesnt get suggested, it will never take off, so i set it to private, since im paranoid the bad mettrics will have an impact on all the rest of my channel. ive heard google judges on a video by video basis to rank them but im paranoid that having a video that performs so bad will have an impact on the rest of my channel and thus nerfing further uploads

    full thread:

    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/t...id-of-new-coppa-rules-results-inside.1174140/


    got any ideas? this channel gives me a modest but very nice income. i enjoy making this content, but i have this feel that its going to be over soon, and i have no other ideas. this was the only time i managed a contstant flow of organic traffic with those videos, but only THOSE videos get the traffic. even with a big channel like mine, changing the content doesnt work, cause im anonymous. in order to change your content, you need to be a loved personality, people worship gamers like dantdm and pews die pies and those guys, not an anonymous animation channel, so im fucked, i cant change the content, even sightly, i must keep chucking out videos on this same niche. im ok with that, as long as it makes me some money, however, like i said, the fucking US government wants to ruin my life with their stupid rules, so my channel may be dead by next year, and i got no plan b.

    I personally dont have any exp. with loquedo (from what I understand its a text to speech program?)
    If that the case, Its quite possible youtube finds the content CHEAP and or Fake.
    Its not hard to get a quick V.O.
    check FIverr/google for help.

    type the script out and hire someone to read it aloud.
    I think id be worth re uploading BUT look into other ways to monetize BEYOND the monetization of youtube (CPA Affiliate Ecommerce). Your better off not leaving all your eggs in one basket after doing ALL THIS WORK making the content.


    kk,
    firstly see above post.
    "I think id be worth re uploading BUT look into other ways to monetize BEYOND the monetization of youtube (CPA Affiliate Ecommerce). Your better off not leaving all your eggs in one basket after doing ALL THIS WORK making the content."

    You need to learn at least two other was you can USe the traffic to make money from yout videos OUTside of yotuubes basic hand out.
    Learn a new traffic monetization method and or start a Joint Venture here on BHW to do it for u.
    Im more than sure a lot of guys would love to try and match there monetization with your traffic. (take care to make sure there method matches your niche type)
    People love traffic and you have it!
    so your not in a bad place your in a New place. thats all.

    As per all these RULE changes. ITs like the WEATHER just cause a fire burns down your neighbors house it doesnt mean you should be Worrying about the next fire 24/7.
    in other words. Get over it and let go of things out of your conrtrol. Then think two step ahead and think. IF THIS DOES HAPPEN I still ahve this this and this in place.
    Hence my suggestion you monetize your content other wise.

    As a third note, BRANDING, you can keep your anonymity and still Brand your content. Make a fun fake name and publish content under that brand,
    If you need branding help i'm sure the Marketplace would be able to help you. or if you super stuck your can om me. (also see the tiktok niche on youtube for examples)

    How?
    Basicly get a logo get a name, get an opening and closing for all your content.
    Mores so WHY we Brand:
    we do this To PUSH the Fan base and traffic to multiple platforms INCASE one goes DOWN. If pew die pie lost his channel tomorrow He wouldnt care. Why?
    He has all his social platforms and his own personal website where all his veiwers would jump over to.
    same thing with your stuff.

    LASTLY
    the new video.
    In my exp. youtube sees videos as there own personal individual piece >when it come to ranking>>>> Only in part.
    If a channel uploads a topic that is similar to a previous video, you bet it trusts that content a Bit more then it normally would.

    Just know youtube remembers :p so yes you (even using the same channel) started a new air qoute "Series of content" on yout channel when you changed content types
    So you got less juice. Das normal man.

    If Cartoonnetwork suddenly went into Documents they would have the same hit, youtube algo or no youtube.

    Either way all this doesn't matter that much in your case those< focus on Strong content and learn those new ways to monetize. or get a Jv going.
    GL man GL

    Personal Note*
    that message looked like it took you ten years towrite up.
    Keep it short and simple on BHW, I learned that lesson personally trust me :p

    Oddly enough i find that to be a try and test situation
    Firstly Id start off here on BHW
    they are going to have a bit more credit then the rest of the net.

    Secondly id say your niche will have impact on the retention rate via provider.

    Lastly
    I also remember a quote from one of my fav mods here on bhw.
    You get what you pay for.
