    Has anyone figured out how to get top comment on youtube yet after the G+ update? I have been waiting on a bot to be made for this but the person working on it seems to have disappeared or given up.

    Getting like for the comment usually pushes it

    up to the top.


    In my experience, after I have given a useful or insightful comment people start giving it

    likes and then my comment will be the first one they see and they will like it which creates a snowball effect.


    "Viral" comments can get your channel more exposure than people realize.

    I don't think just liking the comment works anymore. I have tested and it doesn't move the comment up to top. I believe accounts commenting and liking the comment need to have good activity and be in good standing to boost the comment to top, but I need a way to automate this

    I have automated liking a comment and it seems to push it to the top. (have to have an attached g+ account though)

    It's as simple as liking it, either mass liking, or liking with 20 of your accounts depending upon how popular the video is.

    No sir, its not just with likes. And top comments are different depending the user reading them.

    it's not always the same as i observed. sometimes the most recent comments and sometimes the ones with the most likes are the top ones

    I just started posting on youtube again, just to add opinions, some times I get a few thumbs up.
    As far as I can tell, they are on the top where they belong.
    I almost feel the comment system works better for natural posters such as myself, it seems my channel gets more views now, as well as the vids themselves.
    My parody channel has only about 40 subs and by vid count is pathetic, but never the less, posting on other peoples vids, when I get thumbs up, seem better now over all, for my pathetic channel.
    However, I do not know if other people see my comment at the top as I do.
    This video has me at the top with 2 likes
    anyone wish to check and see if paradyisms is at the top for them?

    Thanks for checking btw
    As I said, bored to death, dont work, 24/7 to spend so I post on yt sometimes and that is what happens
    I have more top comments than I can could or remember
    pm me if yah want, so I will know you replies again

    edit
    I like to post relevant points with added humor as that one is.
    As serious is that vid is and the added post I made too, the added humor is what does it I think.

    The new YouTube comment system has made it more than "a little uncomfortable" to get "top comment". Essentially, top comments aren't even a thing anymore. If you're logged into your YouTube account you're just going to see the "top comments" based on who you're subscribed to/who you have in your circles on G+. The "overall/general" top comment has ceased to exist unless you explicitly tell YouTube to show you "all" comments instead of "tailored" comments. It's very inconvenient.
