    Forget cookie cutter percentages (80/20), no site is ever the same and no traffic source for each site is ever the same.

    The 2-5 views per day is nothing and shouldn't even be used to gauge progress.

    You need to be active in the niche (example, same niche forums). There's tons of active forums related to cars and racing. Again, forget percentages (80/20) just get in there and participate while showing same niche traffic you have something they might be interested in. Post your own same niche content directly on the target traffic forums (participate). If you spam a forum and get banned that's your own fault. There's a difference between participating and spamming.

    If this is your idea of useful, it's not. Traffic doesn't need a site scraping Youtube videos, they'll skip you and go to Youtube. I noticed you have videos from multiple youtube channels which tells me you're just copy/pasting other folks videos on your site... which translates to you have nothing to offer traffic.

    Honestly, I am woman and I would love to learn about cars. In fact I have a 2013 dodge challenger on 22's, lol. Because fixing/learning about cars is such a hands on job the best way to learn is not through articles but through videos.

    And guess what.... google owns YouTube. YouTube is the second largest search engine in the world. YouTube gets 3 billion searches a day!

    One thing you have to remember is that not all forms of marketing will fit every niche. No matter how hard you work.

    In this case you may want to HEAVILY consider YouTube.com for educating your audience and positioning yourself as an authority figure while additionally building up a loyal fan base.

    In the future you could funnel that traffic back to your website or whatever your goals are.
    Or you could stay with YouTube and become a partner, but I remember you said your not doing this to make money.

    Honestly, it appears you have everything you need to get this going, a car, a garage and a camera. I invested close to $6,000 in setting up a video studio in my home. I have a Cannon 5d mark II.

    However, you don't even need that to get started just a camera from Walmart could do the trick.

      Video tutorials are great but OP isn't creating videos, he's just promoting other folks videos that don't put money in his pocket.
