HOW TO BEAT YOUTUBE Ė How to get your video ranked on the first page of YouTube search results with other videos that have 1,000,000+ views!
It took a friend of mine (hacker by trade) almost a year to figure out how the YouTube algorithms respond when ranking a video. This is what he does for a living. He figures out how different algorithms work so he can manipulate them and get paid. He calls it "SEO;" I call it cheating.
So, after all his hard work, Iím going to be the guy who just gives it away to you. Why? Because I think itís funnyÖ
I want you to keep in mind that algorithms change all the time; especially if YouTube finds out that this is general knowledge and everybody starts using it. So, as a disclaimer, this will only work for a little while, depending on how badly this info is abused. If everyone and their grandmothers start trying to get their crappy little videos to the top of the page, itís going to draw attention - and not the good kind. The kind where you try to show your friend how good of a job you did cheating YouTube and all the sudden you canít find your video. Oh, wait a minute, you canít even find your ACCOUNT! What the hell is going on here?
So, Iím going to break it down as simple as possible; step-by-step. Here it is:
- Start 15 separate YouTube accounts Ė by separate, I mean completely unrelated. Different e-mails, different user names, different profile info (if you choose to create any profile info).
- Make sure all these new accounts "Favorite" the key video you are trying to get ranked.
- Have every account start a new Playlist.
- Add your key video to every playlist.
- Make sure there are 60 other videos in each playlist with your key video.
*NOTE: These other videos need to be related to your key video! (e.g.: Donít add a bunch of cute baby videos to your playlists when your key video is about grant writing)
*NOTE: These other videos need to have at least 100,000+ views; 1,000,000+ views would be even better.
- Each account should favorite the new playlist from all the other accounts.
Thatís it! Donít expect your video to jump to the first page overnight; it does take time. And, so it doesnít look like you are purposely trying to cheat the system, I suggest adding some other videos to each account. Add them, favorite them, make some other playlists, whatever. All Iím trying to say is donít let each account be stuck with one playlist that has 61 videos on it (your key video with the other 60 high-viewed related videos) and one "Favorite" Ė your video. Itís obvious and a good way to guarantee your video will NEVER be ranked high.
So, in conclusion, be careful and be smart about it. Thereís nothing worse than giving valuable information to some idiot who doesnít respect its value and ends up throwing it all away. And for what? NOTHING! Just because he or she is an idiotÖ
I donít usually write about stuff like this. As a matter of fact, I own a grant writing company and Iím just working on the SEO for my website by doing some article submissions. So, with that said, humor me and visit my website at www.grantpros.org. We have everything you need in regards to grants: what grants are and how they work; the best tips and tricks regarding grant writing; the latest requests for proposals issued by grantmakers; the latest news on grant awards and fundraising.
Regardless of what my articles are about, Iíll always publish something useful. Iíve submitted quite a few articles having to do with grants and grant writing. Iíll probably never stop doing that. But, Iíve learned quite a bit about search engine optimization in the last few months so I think Iíll share some of my discoveries with you on that as well. Thanks for taking the time to read this!
