    thanks for the reply, what if all of those 100 views searched for my keyword, and watched my entire video, leaving a like/comment? ;)

    My experience is it doesn't work if they come from a panel. I tested a few videos with 3K+ views and 70%+ view rate, they are not even in the first 10 pages of the targeted tags with SEO optimized title, description, etc.

    This is MY personal experience.

    What would you use instead of your face or stock footage?

    I own a podcast where I sometimes read naturally my scripts and would rather not refilm them less professionally for the sake of getting them to YouTube.

    Do you think options such as Powtoon (suggest others if possible) can be well received in terms of engagement and watch time?

    Which stock video galleries do you personally use? Paid, but hopefully also free.

    Thanks for the help in advance

    Can older videos also get featured and make some high amounts of views?

    For example is it only possible to get viral and featured with newer videos (<1 week) or could it be also possible that a video which is 6 month/1 year + get's also featured?

    the only way is to test it. I am a data guy and you can maybe run a few tests to see. The only problem I can foresee is a long-term "pattern" where you get constantly those 100 super-engaged views and way less engagement later on.

    Yeah that I can agree with. I'm going to try this service out later. It's called keyword search views.

    1. How can a new page without subscriber can get views? All vids has custom thumbnails and optimized tags
    2. What aoftware do you use in creating thumbnail and video editing?

    - Have you ever experienced or heard use of multiple accounts for the benefits of just one channel? Something like liking video/comments with multiaccounts..

    - For a new channel, there would be some restrictions if it hides subscribers number? for a channel that has less than 100 subs, it is better to hide subs or show them ( and risk that people don't subscribe to a brand new/low subs channel)?

    Thanks for doing this!

    How would you increase the probability of a video going viral in terms of tags/keywords? Do you just copy popular's video tags? Or how would the research process go for tags/keywords. Thanks!

    No problem!:)

    1. Yes they can post a link to your channel within their community tab.
    2. From what I've tested, yes. essentially youtube is a business based off of ads. I tested a video that I uploaded back in October. Uploaded it wiht monetization enabled off. 48 hours later, I enabled monetization, slapped 10 ads on it, and it went viral. In my opinion, does youtube favor videos that have ads vs those that dont? I think so, but it's not for certain. From a business standpoint, it makes sense.

    Nothing is going to guarantee that your video will be suggested to other videos. By improving CTR and watch time retention, you have a BETTER chance of being suggested to other videos.

    Oooo not too much experience in this area. I cant answer because I dont have any experience or facts to back up whatever my opinion is. Sorry!

    Super dope to be hearing your results! I have videos like that too (i.e. video brings in $1.20 per day, but if I have 40 videos bringing me in $1 a day, that adds up and so on!)

    Based off your scenario, i dont see any reason as to why your adsense account would be banned. I would consult with google adsense themselves to be sure.

    Check the BHW market place!

    Hey there! So instead of your face or stock footage, you can use screen recordings, images, copyright materal even. For my videos, I switch it up with video with audio, video without audio, images, and screen recordings. I dont use my face at all. I hope this helps let me know!

    Animations in my opinion are quite experience, but perhaps thats something you should test out!

    Replied!

    Sure can! I've had videos go viral even after 3 months of being posted. Greater than 3 months is kind of cutting it. The earliest viral video ive had was within 48 hours. The latest was 3 months.

    1. A new youtube channel without subscribers can:
    - post their video on reddit
    - post their video on facebook groups
    -post their video on IG
    -post their video on other channels' community boards
    - post their video to their email list

    2. I use photoshop and final cut pro x

    Well here's my two cents:

    ANYONE can buy likes and comments. These are what I like to call "secondary" metrics, which means, AGAIN, my opinion, are weighted A LOT less by YouTube. If you could imagine, if what determined a video to go viral was just likes and comments, then everyone would just buy likes and comments- what people CANT buy though, are click through rate and watch time. Those two metrics are PRIMARY metrics and in my opinion can only be well achieved organically.

    For a new channel, i wouldnt hide the subscribers number. I think it's just based on your preference. I for one dont care how many subs a channel has as long as its content is good. Have you ever been influenced to subscribe to a channel based on the sub count? If that's a yes, then why?lol

    Hope this helps!

    No problem:) So i get this question asked a lot or something similar to it, but no problem! IN my opinion, it's 95% of the time NEVER a tag/keyword problem.

    If we all jsut simply copied popular videos' tags and keywords word from word, then why wouldn't we all just have viral videos?

    While it does play a factor, what's even more important is CTR and WATCH TIME. If you can have a bangin CTR and watch time your video is more likely to go viral.

    My research process is to gain inspiration from other videos and make it better. Plain and simple. If a video has worked before in the past, it can work again. I dont worry about competition ever. haha

    Thanks for the follow!

    @wengthemeng you're the best! I think for a video that performed already well even before being monetized will surely be boosted by YouTube once it is slapped with ads.

    I think you overlooked my #3 and #4 questions... but #3 seems to be answered in further replies. But this one more importantly:

    What does social signals, shares, and web 2.0 backlinks can do to a video with the current algo? Maybe you have done it in the past and can share your feedback.

    Thanks a bunch!

    May be stupid question, but... does the video played as shared on the website count views?

    Thanks for helping everyone with good information. I have few questions:


    1. I have read YouTube takes 45% Cut. I wanted to check is the CPM before or after YouTube takes a cut. For example if it states my CPM is $5, would my 'actual' CPM be $2.75.

    2. Monetized Playbacks. I wanted to check what actually is a Monetized Playback and How it works?

    Do I get paid per view or per monetized view? So if a viewer clicked on my video I would not get any earnings unless they view advert? If for example I have 10 minute video and first advert is roughly in 3 minutes in the video. Would that mean that anyone that leaves the video before 3 minutes I would not earn?

    In relation to advert. How does this work? Would they have to watch the entire advert to be classed as monetized view? What if the person skips the advert?

    How does it change if YT premium viewer watches my video? Does that mean I dont earn as they dont have adverts on their videos.

    Using the above $5 CPM (1000) Example. If I get 100K views in a video and only 50% are monetized views (just using random basemark. Is this even accurate lol). Then I would be earning:

    $5 x 100(Views Divided by 1000) x 55% (After YouTube Cut) x 50% Monetized View = $137.50 per 100,000 Views. Is this correct?

    3. Content ID.

    Visual Content ID - This is the one I'm worried about. I know the content ID matches a Video if it is Over 10-15 Secs. I'm thinking of reviewing videos on YT. I.E Cooking, Games..etc. I will not use copyright audio, only commentary and no face cam.

    However, I don't want to be speaking for every second of the video as this will frankly annoy people. Would that mean that if I dont speak for 15 Seconds and it matches the visual content of the persons video I'm reviewing, then basically i will be matched by content ID and my entire video will be demonetized.

    Would this mean that I will be striked and banned.


    I apologized for asking too many questions. Sorry.

    Thanks
