    I run an ecommerce site selling digital documents. In an effort to promote it, I had my VA create videos for each of the documents and post it to YouTube. There are 100+ videos, each unique, each targeting a niche long tail kw/audience. Each video includes an annotation and backlink pointing to the respective money site product page.

    How do you recommend I start ranking these videos? How do you recommend I start gaining real views?

    I have no experience w/ YouTube marketing, so this is new territory for me. My only goal is to get interested users to my videos.

    Should I just buy YT videos and build low quality backlinks (e.g. run a broad match GSA campaign, SB comment blast); and distribute them across my video pages? Or would that be a waste of effort/money?

    Thanks.

    If you will buy views make sure you do it from a good provider like BigBuddy for example...i had very bad experience with low quality views bought from fiverr...i tried almost all of them

    Okay. Thanks for the recommendation.

    Did you find paid views from BigBuddy helped in acquiring real views?

    If you can get your video past Youtube locked at 301 using BigBuddy help then it might be worth a try as it can then have the potential to attract real audiences. Remember to use YT keyworld tool to check if any real audiences are searching for your long tail keyword. If possible, get YT likes from addmefast, put in a marketing statement in your YT video description, if you like my product pls like it, etc. Next get some positive reviews. If you have the budget, buy it if not try to get free source but quality will be questionable. Remember to mix your review with one or two negative ones which you will reply and try to resolve. (Demo of your customer service). After you get this part done up, you should then focus on building backlink for your long tail and try to raise the rank in Google search. Try to register some an account with alibaba with your profile, YT Video and website. Post your services for sale there. They can give quite good link juice. After that create fanpage for your product on FB and accumulate likes and link to your Youtube to create impression that many people are liking your services.

    I am not the expert in this field so I am only sharing what I know and hopefully it can be useful to you. If it is not, please ignore me.

    Awesome! Thanks for detailed response.

    One follow question - what do you mean by Youtube locked at 301?

    Youtube will lock your views at ~301, in which your views will be displayed at 301+.

    They stop you at roughly 300 views so they can check if your views are botted or not (this SHOULDN'T) be stuck there if you were using BigBuddy's service.

    To get out of this roughly 300 view mark, you need to push more unique views. For example, you're stuck at 301 views - you sent 5,000 views from the SAME link, it will show as 301, but you are actually in "debt" views. That's the way I look at it, like money. So to get out of that hole, you will need to receive a MINIMUM of 4,699 different views to make up for the fact you just sent 5,000 bogus views.

    By the way - I think you'll get a better response if you move this to the Youtube section, under "Money Making". :)

    The views from BB are very good for ranking your video. I am getting real views every day now and didn't had any problems with my account. I suggest you do some testing and see what works best for you. An important thing that you should also do is get a lot of subscribers to your channel. From my experience i saw that accounts with many subscribers can rank videos better.
