  • Add most popular videos section to increase more views in your popular videos.
  • Of course, Playlist has power so, create multiple sections with a different playlist.
  • Add a section with a list of playlists.

6. Be consistent: The key to having a successful Youtube channel is consistency. Your visitor should know when you are going to publish next video.

Moreover, if your target audience is from developing country like Nepal, India, many users don’t subscribe and don’t even signup into youtube.  As for those users who don’t signup into youtube, they will get recommend video from cookie data saved in their browser which will expire in some days. So its good to publish video as fast as possible if you are in early stage of youtube. Check geographic audience data from analytics.

Because you’re posting your video in a place where people are desperate for information on a given topic, the views you’ll get are extremely high-retention. Just search for a question on your video’s topic. And add a link to your video. Or better yet, embed it into your answer.

9. Optimize old video: Old video generally reach saturation limit of views and get lost in the dust unless you have millions of subscriber like pewdiepie. Optimizing old video with a good new thumbnail, a new title will definitely get new visitors.
