It appears that many of these with the high views also have the most outside traffic coming from these types of domains. I see this on YouTube channels that are part of a multi-channel network and those that are not.
So, my question is - what are they doing?
Are they paying for traffic? I don't think so. Many of them earn adsense revenue off the videos, so I don't think that's the case.
Are they uploading their youtube video to video sharing sites for distribution/syndication? If so, how? I don't see them sitting there doing this manually, because it would take forever and many upload several videos a week.
Are they using a service? I can halfway understand the MCN is going to get greater distribution, but what about those that aren't in a MCN?
Are they using a tool? I've looked at Traffic Geyser and the new Video Synd Alpha, which looks complicated as hell, and I still don't know why all the OTOs. I've looked at UpLoad, MediaNest, SyndWire, Hydravid, etc.
Also, is there a course that breaks this down. I haven't come across it yet.
Thanks for any insight!
