In the Toy Review Youtube space some channels know how to grow to literally billions of views and millions of subscribers in a year. What's the secret? Please consider the KEY POINT to this post: When discussing the secrets, assume the SEO basics & video quality are already good. Take two channels that both start at the same time and both do a great job but one channel rockets to millions of subscribers & billions of views while the other fights to 3K over the course of that same year. (this happens and has been discussed here before). ASSUMPTIONS: a) Both channels have good Video quality. b) SEO titles, descriptions, thumbnail etc. are good. c) Assume these channels are doing this for monetary reasons so their costs can not exceed their income from real views. Theories: Drip feeding fake views to inflate view totals, raking and popularity to both users and youtube? Initially boosting a video with views and then pumping it back up with more views when it gets pushed down by newer videos? Buying an excessive amount of views for a mega, multi million view video? Having access to free views to pump up a video anytime required? Do Youtube "Networks" manage this kind of thing for a a cut of the income? Thoughts? Please try to remember on the assumptions when answering. When all things are equal, how does one channel achieve mega success in just one year while the equally good channel working equally hard struggles? Thank you.
