How is it some people on youtube get like thousands of views in a matter of minutes after uploading a new video, where as I only get like 30? Granted, I've only had my account for like a week or 2, and they've had theirs for a year, but how do they attract people to come subscribe to them?

Yeah, most def. the subscriptions. When I see someone I have subscribed to posts a video, I generally watch it pretty much right away.

Because they make videos for dumb people, who show the dumb videos to their dumb freinds, who show them to their dumb freinds...and the vicious cycle never ends...

the people that seem to get a lot of views, are the ones that put a random wall of words in the video description that have nothing to do with the video, so that it comes up whenever someone searches for anything..

more tags=more likely to come up in search results
more likely to come up in search results=more views

They are popular because they make good videos. And then some TV station runs it, and even more people see it.

No its subscriptions.

People like sxephil and HotForWords have huge subscribers and you'll find them on the most viewed for today on days that they release their videos.

Plus they can pretty much get some a few thousand views just by mentioning them.

For some of them- with a firefox script that continually refreshes and gives them tons of views.

My views are in the hundreds for each video, with the newest being a few days old. I need a way to get more exposure though.

He said on youtube, so no.

You tube videos that do well appeal to the lowest common denominator and stick as much "randomness" as possible into them. If there's something clever, artful, or just well thoughtout, chances are it won't make it as a youtube vid.

Despite my best efforts, I can't quite figure out exactly what makes something work. Make sure there's a decent looking woman for the screenshot of your video, and tag it with words and phrases from other popular videos and you're off to a good start with a few thousand views, but I can't figure how to turn bull**** into success past that point.

its mainly down to the fact that the person made 1 awesome video, the word spread and just got more and more viewers plus subscribers

E.G someone who myself subscribed to called Cloud8745 (youtube channel NaturalBornGamers) has awesome videos, mainly cos he's funny and its a good gamer

just mainly comes down to the above factors tbh
Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery.

But today is a gift, that is why it is called the present.
