So, I submitted a very original video to youtube last week and it got very positive comments/ratings (5 stars). My friends said that it was really awesome and hilarious. In the first day it received 35 views (which is about the same as the number of subscribers that I have). But after that, it pretty much peaked. It was getting like 1 view a day. The content is very original (something thats never been done before), so all the related videos that are displayed aren't related to my video at all. I did my best to put in relevant tags and I even posted the vid on Digg and Delicious, but it's still not getting any views. Could someone help me?
Have you ever tried to buy youtube views from real people via services? Buying views is a thing. You can get thousands or even millions of views for any video. Use only those companies that will provide your videos with real views, so there will be no chance of your account/video being banned.
i feel like if you do youtube for the views, you´re doing it wrong and are bound to fail. all the successfull youtubers started it as a thing they do cause they personally enjoyed it and it evolved from there.
from what i know the most important thing for generating views besides quality of content is quantity of kontent and kontent schedule. if you have new videos every week or even every other day, views will increase with time (if you do good content). if you just do a video once in a while, people will not remember you. unless you make exceptionally good content like cgp grey for example.
Hm... One thing I've seen you tubers do is to go onto other popular YouTube accounts and say inflammatory stuff in the comments section. People immediately click on your name and view some of your videos and even may comment - it will bring traffic which is always good, yes?
Keep uploading videos everyday and share on all of your social media sites. Also promote yourself on the pages of other youtubers who bring in viewers. Eventually, you should have more subscribers which equal more views.
I have seen many article and videos , but nothing helped
By getting your video recommended or shared by a popular youtuber
My suggestion would be to post it on different sites. You said you put it on Digg and Delicious, but honestly I have never heard of those sites. Post it everywhere - Reddit, tumblr, even here! Share it on facebook and ask your friends to share it. If you had other actors in the video, tell them to share it! I think facebook shares usually get the most views for a video.
It not only has to be original but also appealing enough for people to share on their own.
I have a video that has about 250k views, with no promotion on my part. It is just interesting enough that popular blogs have written about it on their own, it's been shared around Facebook, and ends up linked on forums including non English regularly.
5 stars? That classic youtube Use clickbait titles and hope they don't spam the dislike button. "VIDEO ON GEOGRAPHY FILMED LIVE IN THE HOOD!! DON'T TRY AT HOME! ALMOST DIED! NEARLY RAPED! NEED MONEY FOR A LAWYER!! PRAY FOR MY CITY! SAVAGE ALERT!"
Or just get everyone you know to share and hope you blow up off your own originality.
