    What are everyone's thoughts on the new YouTube homepage? Does this kill the value of fast views since now a high volume of views will never get you homepage. Everything I can see on the homepage now is based on the activity of my subscriptions.

    Haven't seen anyone speak on this yet. Sorry if this topic has already been discussed.

    For me, botting views has never really been about hitting the front page - but my model is a little different from a lot of people here at BHW. For me, getting a large number of views has always been more about generating "credibility" for a video in my chosen keyword. Working on the philosophy of "well, if it has a lot of views/positive comments - it must be legit". I've always been more about hitting the front of the search page for my chosen keywords. I've never really bothered with trying to hit the homepage. Just my two cents.

    maybe not everyone is seeing the homepage the way I'm seeing but there are no tabs for "Trending" "Most Viewed" or anything on my homepage anymore. Everything is strictly related to my subscriptions. Nothing on the on the homepage right now is in relation to views. If I log out it looks like the videos are hand selected by YouTube instead of my subscriptions.

    I guess you can still be win in regards to keywords but it looks like homepage is dead or about to die.

    Interested tactic, but I have never used it so at least the way I use youtube is not impacted. I do not think there is big impact on the mass uploaders, but on mass views videos.

    This is how it has been :D when you are logged in it is sorted by subscriptions if logged off then it is not. Just on the left tabs you need to choose from Youtube and not subs.

    same here. plus the "Popular videos" in browse page is all fucked up too. Looks like they're breaking down categories into smaller ones or something.

    If I click on "Entertainment" I get a bunch of other topics instead of top 40. retarded. I miss the old top 100 charts and honors. I used the sell the shit out of those.

    There are so many great videos on youtube and their popular videos are mostly complete shit (before these changes I mean too). There must be a hidden agenda behind that. Can't show the world something to make them smarter..just makeup and crap. Anyone here could make a better popular videos page then Google if you worked there. /rant over

    Well for me I haven't seen any changes this is how I've seen it... if I am logged in just go to the tabs on the left it should say From Youtube, Trending etc. Nothing has changed really, it has been like this for a good while.
