YouTube Success Depends On Traffic

I’ve done a few posts on making money with YouTube including the following;

  1. Make Money With YouTube? Is It Possible
  2. How To Promote YouTube Videos
  3. YouTube Producing The Right Videos

Each of the posts have interesting and important points to those of you wanting to excel on the YouTube front. Naturally your YouTube success is dependant on the amount of traffic that you’re able to drive to your video. That may be a no brainer but it seems that a lot of people fail to take this into account when publishing their video.

Before producing your video you really need to work out what sort of video people are looking for. I know people like to be entertained and so I came up with my Laughaholics series of video. So far they’ve got a combined amount of almost 1000 views. Not too bad, but nowhere near as many views as my motorbike stunts video which has over 42000 views.

Further study has shown me that ‘how to‘ are also extremely popular. My first ever how to video was How To Have A Different Header On Each Page Of Your WordPress Blog which has had over 6000 views. Just recently I published a video on How To Replace A Rear View Mirror on a Toyota HiAce. Even though the amount of views would be limited to Toyota HiAce drivers I posted it anyway because I figured it might be of some use to other Toyota owners.

YouTube Success How To Video

My latest How To YouTube Video shows How To Fix A Caroma Toilet that won’t stop flushing. I’ve had this problem for awhile now and it was really starting to piss me off. I managed to fix the ensuite loo but now the main one is playing up. This time I remembered to video it to help anyone else having the same problem. Luckily it worked like a breeze, I’d hate to have egg on my face if it didn’t work.  :phew!!:

The reason these how to videos are so popular is because money is tight and people will look to the Internet for solutions to their problems rather than having to call in a professional who charge an arm and a leg.

    Hi

    I totally agree that people now a day first look at internet to solve the problem before they call a professional. Making videos to solve day to day problem is a great way to make money online.

    1. Hey Steven. I suppose it all depends on how you deliver the subject matter. I think shorter would be better than longer so as not to lose the viewers interest. It would probably be better to make several short videos on a subject rather than one long one.

      As long as the videos are providing information that people are searching for I see no reason why you shouldn’t cover that topic.

    1. Yep, now all we have to do is to make sure we’ve used the right keywords and to promote it so as to drive traffic to it.

    Of course it’s still fairly hard to get that kind of traffic and then keep it on a consistent basis. For instance, you mentioned having the one video with thousands of views but then you also have some with very few. It’s a tight market with lots of competition but if one can find a way to stand out, one could make heaps of cash.

    Which isn’t me, but I’m still hoping to build up my portfolio because one never knows right? :-)

    1. Yeah, I must admit when posting those videos that are getting all the traffic even I was surprised how well they are doing.

      I am happy though that since writing these posts my YouTube subscribers are steadily increasing which I think is a great positive.

      1. Unfortunately I’ll just have to keep putting out videos and hopefully adding to my count. Maybe I’ll have a contest of some sort if I ever reach 150; that’ll be another 3 years lol

  6. Previously I was upload YouTube Video as you say but I have not get traffic. So I think this trick is not more working.

  7. Just as with any business starting out, you have yo get your videos in front of as many people as possible that share the interest of your posts. Try joining forums that specialize in your subject, and then showing them something of interest.

    I LOVE Motorcycle stunts!

  8. A very good article. YouTube has made it rather hard to get consistent traffic for your videos now, a good way to get your content seen is probably to link to it from external stuff like forums or even social networks if you have a huge following, hopefully that will help with starting out on YouTube.

    I was Making Good Money from YouTube Last Year but this my focus is on Blogging but after reading this i will focus on Both from Now on.

    1. I think that is a very good idea. Not only will it increase your income but YouTube can also build traffic to your blog.

        Yes Sire It Brings Good Traffic if We are Using Quality Videos that Creates Interest of Users in Video and then in the Article Related with that Video Pointing to our website.

        1. While it’s important that the videos should be of high quality, that alone will not guarantee success. To achieve that you have to produce a video on popular topic that is found when the users search for it.

            Yes Sire Using YouTube Keyword tool to get Keywords that are Popular on YouTube and then Creating Videos on that Topics

  10. Youtube has become a powerful source of Video advertisement, and people are getting a lot of traffic to their online sales and purchase sites. The only thing you should keep in mind is to upload the quality videos to your channel.


      1. Twitter:
        Their are Times when I was Making $100 of Dollars from YouTube Alone Uploading 1 Video In Few Days.


          1. Twitter:
            Some of them are Spiritual Videos , Some are Hidden Talent Videos , Some of them are My Unique Creations.

  11. Not from all the videos, but only the unique videos can make some money for you.

    1. Pretty well any video that YouTube allows you to monetise will make money as long as it gets a decent amount of traffic.
      Sire recently posted…British Humor Friday Funnies #103My Profile

  12. Hello sire,
    Thanks for the video, All i want to ask is that, Apart from adsense, Is there any other way to make money via youtube videos.?

    1. Not on the video themselves unless they’re promoting a product or creates enough interest to encourage people to visit your site. Once there it’s up to you to convert.
      Sire recently posted…British Humor Friday Funnies #103My Profile

  13. Yes, traffic and YouTube earnings are directly proportional to each other. In my opinion, to make some quick bucks with YouTube we should always try to upload unique videos.

  14. You tube is such a very powerful source. everyone want to promote own video on you tube but then can’t expected traffic through you tube because of some miner problems. thanks for sharing your innovative idea.

      1. Obesely, without work you can get traffic. But I have a question. what we do after you tube submission? which type of activity I will done.


        1. Twitter:
          You need to choose the keywords carefully as they’re an integral part of the search engine results. It’s also a good idea to have some of the keywords in the title as well as in the video description.
