    Hey everyone,

    I was hoping for some wisdom and advice on how I can get my comments to become top comment on YouTube.

    For example my main channel is quite old (5 years), has 1000+ subscribers and some video activity, an active G+ page with a considerable number of followers (mostly fake). I post a comment and reply to it around 30 times making a "fake" discussion, give it something like 40 thumbs up.

    My competitor's comments are from a channel that is younger than mine, with barely any subscribers, no uploaded videos. No active G+ page. He posts a couple of comments and gives himself a couple of thumbs up and Voila, he's outranked mine.

    I've tried doing this from multiple channels. Can anyone provide some insight on what I must do in order get top comment?

    Found this to be helpful for your question: https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/youtube/cMrA2Vv66xk

    Even states:
    2. The ranking of YouTube top comments IS NOT affected by any of the following factors:
    > How many views your YouTube channel has
    > How many subscribers/subscriptions your YouTube channel has
    > How many videos you have uploaded to your YouTube channel
    > How many people you have or have you in Google+ circles
    > How many +1s your Google+ profile/page has

    3. The ranking of the Top Comments IS AFFECTED by the following factors:
    > Google+ Quality Factor: The MAIN criteria used to determine which comments should go top on YouTube comments is the quality factor of
    the commenter's Google+ account, which is determined by how often or how many times the user posts/ has posted on his/her Google+
    profile/page, especially those posts which contain links to YouTube videos. NB: This excludes flagged Google+ accounts that have an irregular or
    unusually large number of posts which indicates the account is being used for spamming activity. YouTube comments from Google+
    accounts with a better quality factor are ranked higher in the Top Comments compared to others with a lower quality factor.

    You mean the amount of the replies? Or the number of thumbs up?

    I'm not too familiar with targeting the Top Comments section on YouTube since I always target new videos for my comments. However, I once read an article that mentions that the Top Comments section on YouTube is "personalised" for each viewer, so you and another YouTuber will see 2 different "Top Comments" sections. Here's an excerpt from the article:
    Assuming this is still applicable, I would take this into consideration.
