    The videos are petty bad. Just compiled clips of girls.

    What is viral about them? They aren't funny or anything.

    It's just a bunch of scantily clad women doing disgusting things. In other words, it's nothing special that can't be seen on a million other websites. I'm not sure why they would go viral. Most people won't share videos like that on their social media for obvious reasons. Maybe find another niche and create some incredible content that cannot be found elsewhere if you want your videos to go viral.

    Send some backlinks to them, maybe some high pr blog comments. That should pick up some additional views.

    Videos like that don't go viral cause there is nothing beneficial about it. Is like you telling a woman to go and watch a porn movie instead of videos on how they can lose some extra pounds for example.

    Even if you are creating videos just for hobby sake you need to make videos that would resonate with your audience something that they would like.

      Not that I'm supporting the OP's video or business model in any way; but are we really going to say here that a woman couldn't derive any benefit from watching porn?

      I don't think the production is particularly bad. I've seen videos that were a lot worse quality than that go viral. It's the content that is the issue here.

      Those videos mostly only appeal to young to middle-aged men. Right off the bat that has cut down the potential audience.

      Another problem with the content is that they aren't very entertaining to watch, and I can imagine that most married men wouldn't dare share any of those videos on any of their social media accounts.

      I don't want to be rude to the OP or anything, but for lack of a better word those videos are crap.

        Videos go viral because it is something that clicks with the audience, and they want to watch and share it. It doesn't have anything to do with what you think should go viral. For me, there is nothing special about these videos.

        Your channel is new. It takes a lot longer than one week for an audience to find you.

        Ok here is some constructive critism :-


        • Your videos are not optimised. Where is the title, description and tag correlation?
        • Have you shared your video and produced some inbound links?
        • The quality is BAD!!
        • Your channel is full of fluff (no offence) but a large majority of people will interact with you and your channel, so it need content!!

    If you are not years established, and start a new channel, I think it can be difficult nowadays to get massive views without serious marketing of your channel.

    I think a few years back you could put up almost anything, and get thousands of views. YouTube is a massive Google search engine now, but others are doing well it appears,

    I think hard work and original idea have great potential..

    The videos are very GENERIC

    If you're serious about putting together VIRAL VIDEOS, you should study videos on Facebook in your NICHE that have gone viral. This is hard to do manually so you might want to use free tools like sociocaster to get a feel of what's SUCCESSFUL in your niche.

    Come up with similar content and here's the secret....

    REPLICATE their distribution channels.

    In other words, don't reinvent the wheel.

    Just reverse engineer your top competitors' most viral content and use the same distribution channels.

    Thanks,
    Be sure that you share each and every video that you upload on the website, it will help you a lot. One of the biggest platforms that you will get traffic which can be converted to views is the social media sites such as Facebook, twitter and Instagram. You will be able to see the persons interested visiting the link and just sharing too with their friends. It is called telling a friend to tell a friend. It works very well and you will be surprised how the like and views increase.

    Videos and other content go viral when people are...

    1- emotionally moved

    2- amused

    3- Feeling that you solved some serious issue that really helped them out.

    But the main reason why content goes viral is because people love to 'appear' cool online and share other people's stuff to make them look cool (while creating a buzz around them).

    Ok guys thanks for all the comment, i did chance my strategy i removed all the old videos and im now uploading beter videos, but i have one question:

    I got one videos that got 20.000 views in one day i think you can call that viral ;-)
    its about a laughing monkey the only problem is that there arent any comments or shares or new subscribers from this video
    which I think is pretty weird, i posted a label in front of the video saying: subscribe for more viral
    videos, how can i take my benenfits from this one viral video

      Tell me again....how is 20k views in one day viral?

      There's software and a plethora of youtube view services and gigs that can do this and more.

      Views does not equal viral. Viral is something totally different and views is just one part of that formula.

      Also, just because a video is popular on youtube.com, doesn't mean that it brings a crowd with it when you embed on your site.

          Oh I see..my bad. I completely lost track of the OP. Sorry for that.

          So the issue really is that youtube doesn't have a facility for any video to go viral inherently other than:

          1 - Other members embedding your video in their playlists or users adding it to their favorites, etc.

          Hardly going viral in that sense as opposed to becoming a popular video which is what you are aiming at with 20K views.

          So speaking to the individual video, what helps a single video would be that it gets as much play exposure as possible. Leveraging other social media and bookmarking platforms will help your video "escape" the youtube universe and enter into the viral realm. That people can easily share videos with each other on Facebook, instagram, twitter, etc., will help further expand your video's reach.

          What helps videos overtime is the second aspect which is channel popularity. After you have a few popular videos, your channel will become popular too and then all of your videos will get more and more views everyday as your channel becomes a solid source of popular content.

          As is true in blogging holds true for youtube channels - CONTENT is everything. Create and curate popular content and the viral effect will be fostered if you purpose extended shares through all social media outlets.

            Now after clicking on the url in your description I see a big problem (and small ones too! smh)

            I'm afraid only a select group of people who love to share videos and are the impetus behind videos going viral will dare share your video if the link is pointing to a porn site. What does the laughing monkey have to do with porn? There isn't even a warning that the link will go to a porn site - if anything you gain people's ire.

            So unless you specifically target adult content communities, this method is showing you its true results - simple.

              you got a point there, let me explain my whole point of setting up a youtube channel is to make money so i drive traffic too a cpa pop-up website, i know that if you want to unlock the content you really want to see what to content is, so i had a old porn site that i used for my old (twerk compilation channel) that now is change, and porn scores always the best almost al man are interested in porn and some women, but i agree that this might deter some viewers, but i cant created 100+ of website that all match with the videos, and this is a viral video channel so al videos are not made by me offcuorse so i dont make any money with the views,

              I have to send my viewers somewhere to make some money ... but i dont know where..

    YOUR VIDEO’S NOT FUNNY, THRILLING OR SHOCKING ENOUGH It all starts with the big, creative ideas, and ends with the brass having the balls to push the limits of acceptability and do something completely unexpected and memorable. Videos that go viral all have one thing in common.

    Like others here have said a video or any piece of content usually goes viral when people want to share content with others. The problem here, like the others above said, is that most people are not going to share things like this to their social media accounts.

    If I understand your plan correctly you are just trying to get a lot of views to the video and then have the cpa pop up appear like a ppv ad. If that is indeed the case I would say maybe creating a funny fails compilation channel. It's nothing special but more people would be willing to share the content.

    Then you could set up the ads to be simple zip or email submit offers. You might not make too much in the beginning but it might be a start.

      I understand that but "viral video" is a really wide brand, but i really like the idea that RJKushner just mentioned but the only problem is that it will take some time to make viral/funny video website go populair enough to get them clicking on ads so i can earn some, I need temporary solution to earn from my vieuws to at least buy a better host and domain name, because right now i have 0$ to invest , im a student i life from 30$ a month to eat from, thats why i really want to earn money as fast as possible with my vieuws/channel that is growing little by little.

    Thanks,

    To be honest even the dumbest video can end up viral. A few things that I have done to make my videos rank higher in results and attract mroe views naturally is get as many likes, favorites, and comments to the video as possible. There are many resources on the internet that you can get genuine interaction on your videos from other people you just have to look around. My favorite tool is a website called "Like4Like" I always need this if i need to give my video a boost. I make instrumentals and the highest video view count im sitting on right now is close to 50,000.

      Arclite,

      Since you're good at "photoshop, webdesign, 3d video-editing,creating bots", I suggest you create a channel based on that.

      I looked at your channel and at once glance, I wasn't able to tell who your target audience is.

      You need to have a SPECIFIC AUDIENCE. That's the basics of doing business, and it applies online. To target people who buy fish, you sell fish.

      You can look around at Adobe forums, create videos to common problems people ask there.

      I suggest you go through the videos in this channel below:

    I've noticed at least in my experience that the first 72hours of a video going live is crucial if you are to hold the Viral effect and get shown next to other viral or highly viewed videos in the same niche.

    I tend to set a plan in motion with each new upload to my channels and prime Twitter, Facebook and others to be ready to post at peak times. Peak times is key as not only are people more likely to click through and watch but they are more likely to share it as they know their friends will be online or browsing the net also.

    If you have existing videos uploaded that don't have many views but you feel could go viral try changing around title and description then pushing some traffic to it. Its most important to rank the video as if you cant see it in the first page of Youtube search then it will be a struggle to get it up to the top.
