Noone Watching You? How to Get a 1000 More Views on YouTube.

how to increase youtube video views - more people watching

I can’t remember where I picked this idea up, but like any idea -I am clearly not the first one to have it. I’m certainly not the last though – and in the world of online marketing THAT is all that counts πŸ™‚

Today I want to share just one little tip that will almost, no it WILL guarantee to result in more views on your Youtube videos. It’s that good in fact that I think you should just give me a round of applause right now. That’s a little presumptuous of me I know, but by the time you are done reading this, you will sit back in the warm afterglow of this brilliant tip and think ‘you know, he did deserve a bit of an applause early on‘ and then you will just feel bad about it- so I am only asking for the ovation for your own good. Standing is optional.

How to Get 1000’s more views on YouTube Videos.

I don’t really utilise YouTube like I should. I have posted maybe four or five videos for the sake of SEO and marketing and that is about it. I really should do more considering how powerful YouTube can be but I don’t. Surprising really considering how much I love the sound of my own voice – but anyway…

So I have this video that I did reviewing Unique Article Wizard and to this day I have a total of 247 views on it. Woo yeah! (rolls eyes)

What I want is to get more people looking at it, and here is the way to do it.

Step 1:

Search for the related term in YouTube – in this case it is going to be ‘Article Marketing’

first look for relevant videos with high view counts in youtube

Step 2.

Find related videos that have as many views as you can find and click on them.

the comments thread of related videos will get you more views

Step 3.

Go down to the comments thread and respond to the video…

Posting your YouTube video as a comment response is the secretStep 4.

Create a Video Response with the video you want more views on… (you know, the relevant one we started with)

increase your own video views by posting them hereStep 5.

Cross your fingers and hope the owner of the video approves your video response*
*Since this is a review of a paid product I highly doubt my video will get approved most of the time. This is obviously not the case if you are promoting yourself, your blog, your free product, or Justin Beiber.
Which is why…

Step 6.

Do it again to like 50 videos! It seriously takes about 30 seconds so why not just keep posting them to every related video you can find?!

Step 7.

Dominate the World! – oh no, wrong listΒ  sorry, scratch that one πŸ™‚

Video Marketing Summary.

I takes a lot of views to get your own videos appearing in the featured area on any page of YouTube, so why not cheat the system a little and get your video ‘featured’ just below instead. The beautiful thing about the video response is that they appear first and foremost – so they literally end up taking up one of the most coveted spots on a page that will be potentially be viewed by thousands more people. I can only speak for myself, but when I search for something on Youtube, the next video is always a related one that I clicked on from that page. Make it yours!

Awesome stuff Alex! I also heard that if you have a bunch of other YouTube accounts… and you have them all like your video that you’re trying to rank… that will help to increase the YouTube rankings.

Dear Sir,
I think that you dont know that we can only respond to one video. If in case you repeat the procedure then your previous video response deletes.
Experiment and then come up with a better solution.

This doesn’t work. Your video can only respond to one video. When you posted to fifty other videos it just removes the old link and posts it to the last place you told it to video response it to. I wish it posted to all fifty videos as a response but only posts to one. Sorry. :/

Graham October 2, 2011 at 6:03 AM

Yep. The last comment is correct. As soon as you add it to a new video, it’s removed from the old one. Also, if enough people see it, it will be removed as mass advertising is in breach of youtubes TOS. As for buying views…It doesn’t work. Auto refreshers won’t buy your products. Nor will people paid to repeatedly click on your videos. Also, only one view per IP is counted in youtubes algorithm that determines how often your video appears on the related videos lists. There really is no way to cheat the system. People either find your video because they are looking for it, or because they see it on a related videos list and the title or thumbnail makes them want to see it. There are countless people offering a cheap way to youtube success, but they are all scams and none of them work. Most will result in yout account being closed.
What you COULD try is uploading many copies of the same video. Then you could post each as a response to a different video and just watch how fast they are removed for spam. Also, the video on your screenshot has only 100,000 views over four years. I’ve posted videos as responses to videos that get more views in one day than that has in a year and gotten maybe 50 extra views in a day. It really isn’t worth it

Its a nice thought that playing by the rules work. But in reality music becomes number one for popular artists because those in the industry pump money in to make them jump to the top 10.. YouTube and twitter work no different. Checking on rising artists and you find many of their 10k subs are blank with activity, views can be easily purchased to pump up the rankings(1 million views quickly will run you about 12k), no different for twitter that an analysis of followers for many shows eggs with almost non active accounts of tweets. Frankly like politics the whole thing is a game. He who has the gold gets the ranking. Check out the stats on YouTube where over 80 percent of the videos get only hundreds of views. To rank in YouTube high is 99.9% money and .01% luck!

YouTube to promote, however, can only work if your video becomes popular. And its popularity is the number of views you have. To start with a wider range of viewers, it is recommended that the views of the first purchase of YouTube. These views allow the video the highest ranking on Google and YouTube. And the high qualification will provide valuable exposure for your video marketing needs. Finally, the screen will be normal real people who are searching the internet for information about their products or services.

So if I’m trying to promote a harp guitar video, and I post on the top 30 for views (I have to sift through them to find the ones I’m that are the most relevant), search results are limited, and I want to promote another harp guitar video after that. Later, when the 2nd vid is ready for release, I try posting to the same top 30?

Larry November 6, 2011 at 3:23 PM

Oh, and I didn’t realize when I was posting the same vid to 30 pages, that IF you are accepted, the same video can only be considered as ONE video response to any given video. Originally I thought one video could be used as a video response to several.

Nick November 7, 2011 at 4:03 AM

Great post. I already knew about video responses though, unfortunately. Can’t you only Video Response to 1 Youtube Video. Once you respond to another video it disappears from the first video. Isn’t that right?

Alex November 8, 2011 at 11:36 PM

Yeah I since learned that but never got off my date and updated the post LOL.
I really ought to since this post gets more Google traffic than any other at the moment (hence the affiliate ad at the bottom – sorry about that πŸ˜‰ )

Nick November 9, 2011 at 4:40 AM

Haha, quite alright. Ride the wave of traffic! My top 10 rss feeds is the post that gets the most Google Traffic. Unfortunately, no affiliate link. I might have to add one. Got to find a relevant one though. Haha. There’s a task for me!

Larry November 7, 2011 at 2:19 PM

I’m still learning, I think I misunderstood part of this article πŸ™‚ I got approved by one, then that one seemed to cancel me within the same day, and I went to another (in order of requests sent?) My mistake was trying to hit 30 at once with the same video. I want one with the highest number of views, so I would say hit those first (one or two at a time with the same vid), monitor the approval process, and try again with 2 more within a day or two . Repeat etc.

Alex November 8, 2011 at 11:25 PM

That’s my fault sorry Larry πŸ™
I first believed that you could submit to more than one but since learned otherwise and have not updated the post accordingly. My bad – doing it now,… I swear! πŸ™‚

Very energetic post, I loved that bit. Will there be a part 2?
