Youtube remains one of the most popular platforms for self-realization as a blogger. It is a vast base for billions of videos that cover every topic in the world. Even so, there still room for new personalities on this network. It is obvious that you are here because you want to know more about how to become popular on YouTube. And we are happy to give you the knowledge!
First of all, you must understand that one of the most important metrics that you may be concerned about is the number of views that you get. So, in this article, we would like to highlight the most effective strategies to use if you want to get more views on YouTube without paying too much. Let’s get a closer look!
This is quite a controversial method, but if use it properly, the result will be in your favor. Paid services work effectively for giving your channel a jumpstart. Because of the big crowd of bloggers occupying every niche, it can be hard to squeeze in between folks who started their channels a while ago. So purchases have to serve one goal – bring you out in the spotlight, where occasional users will notice you. For beginners, it is also a method to create a base for their future community. Besides, nowadays you can choose a trustworthy service and enjoy high-quality results, like why wouldn’t one buy cheap youtube comments from real person? Yes, you have read it right – a real person, not a mindless bot. Welcome to the 21st century, folks!
However, you must remember a few rules that will help you to avoid problems and mistakes:
- Check the service you choose twice
- Plan your purchases
- Don’t buy grand numbers at once (YouTube may consider such jumps as a fraud and ban you)
- Care for organic growth, as the purchased metrics are only a helping tool
- Narrow Down Your Range Of Topics
Generally speaking, choose a niche, then occupy a certain aspect of it closely, and you’re a doll. The more exquisite is the content, the bigger is the opportunity to stick your videos to similar ones. That is how YouTube works – it suggests new videos basing on the ones you have already watched. For example, if you nail how to make sushi – just dive in. If you are a professional shoemaker – show us how shoes are made! The secret is that if you have many related videos, they would appear before all others, thus providing you more views on all your uploads.
To illustrate the case, let’s go back to sushi making.
You are a pro at making rolls, so you upload some how-to’s on your channel. And each video covers the specifics of a particular roll, like Philadelphia with salmon. Well, if your viewer watched one how-to, it is natural that he wants to see how other types of sushi are made! And if you have a series of how-to’s – California’s, Hot Rolls, Dragons – these videos will appear in the Suggestions area first, because they are related. Thus, again, you will be able to increase your number of views and gain new followers.
Create The Most Attractive Thumbnails
Thumbnail is a small picture that is visible to the user when he surfs through YouTube. And this is the first image that represents your content to the viewer, and it is extremely important as it catches his or hers attention and drives them to your channel. So your task is to create compelling thumbnail pics. Here are some useful tips on how to do it:
- Never use stills from your video. This type of thumbnail is not the most attractive to the user, although there can be exceptions.
- Use pleasant and vibrant colors, preferably orange, blue, and yellow
- Your thumbnail has to give an understanding of what is going to happen in the video. If you are making sushi, then place some on your image
- Make sure that the thumbnail helps the viewer to realize that your video is what he is searching for. That can be made by image rules, mentioned above, and adding a short text that underlines the matter
Make The Most From YouTube’s Features
Youtube is a very high-developed platform, and it has many tools that may come in hand to the blogger. It is important to be at least familiar with them. So the first thing that a willing one has to conquer is Playlists. As we have spoken of getting in the Suggestions area, creating playlists can also improve the quantity of views incoming to your channel. When videos are grouped in relevant playlists, you can easily gain more views due to the laziness of the average users. You see, the videos from the same playlist will begin playing automatically, unless the viewer cancels the action manually. As people tend to let videos play rather than make a few more actions, you will get more.
Another vital thing to use on YouTube is keywords and tags. Some marketers consider them as practically useless, but it is not like that at all. Keywords and tagging are a categorizing tool on Youtube, and this platform loves organizing. Also, adding relevant keywords are helping users to find your video through the search field.
Fun fact: since YouTube is a part of Google, the videos may appear in the general Google search results. And hashtags that are written properly, increase your chance to get in the top results on Google.
Create The Best Content That You Can
The proven tactic to get more views is to produce something unique, that would cover up any flaws that you may have. Putting more effort into creating your videos will always be appreciated by viewers, and your current rank will not matter at this point. That is how all the social media work – no matter how much money you throw on promotion, no matter what method you use if there’s nothing interesting and engaging to see on your profile, people will just leave. For one moment, you can feel like its working, but then your rates will fall, and the glory will fade. There can be no rules for creating the best content because it is impossible to predict what people will prefer. But here are the tips that will help you to make a high-quality product that covers any theme:
- Get the proper equipment, at least for light and stability. Modern smartphones may have cameras good enough for filming, yet the tripod is vital for avoiding shaky images. Professional lightboxes and diffusers can be expensive, but there are ways to make a needed minimum at home.
- Take care of your background – it has to be clean and recognizable, as it is a part of your personality online. Well, unless you are filming on the street.
- Think of a certain feature that defines you among other bloggers. It can be an accessory, or color scheme, catchphrase, or even your pet. Whatever can be your mascot that marks your online presence.
- Think outside of the box. YouTube is a very popular platform, so it can be hard at first due to the competition. And using your brain and fantasy is a must if you want to reach success.
- Expose your personality. That is common to all social media. People like to watch real people, who have feelings, suggestions, experiences, opinions, and attitudes. Making your blog more personal is always a good idea because that is how people will not only be attracted to your channel but will remain there as your followers.
Many stray animals are trying to survive as the temperature in the capital continues to drop. Many strays lose this battle trying to find food and warmth under a scrap of clothing or caged up in the corner of streets. The Perroayuda Welfare Foundation (PWF), a Delhi-based animal welfare organisation, recently held a Mega Stray Feeding Drive in Lajpat Nagar with the goal of feeding all of the area's stray animals. These wonderful Samaritans come from all around Delhi-NCR with one goal in mind: to rescue, feed, and adopt all animals in need.

PWF has previously staged feeding drives in Netaji Subhash Place, Connaught Place, North Campus, Delhi University, and other locations throughout the city. A group of 70 volunteers fed over 100 stray dogs in the vicinity and provided water in earthen bowls. To raise awareness about the issue of stray animals, volunteers talked with businesses, local authorities, customers, and hawkers. The actions of this group of young animal advocates were recognised and supported.
"Donations come in from all around the world." To save strays and pay for their treatment, we rely completely on donations. "Every day, our organisation feeds roughly 1000 stray dogs," says Arpit Mathur, the organisation's founder. "Throughout the day, we receive SOS calls. We can only accomplish so much with our limited staff and resources. We hope that more young people, like us, would join us in this cause." In Rohini, the NGO also maintains a recovery centre. Currently, the recovery centre accommodates roughly 40 animals, including cats, dogs, monkeys, and a few unusual birds.

PWF seeks to discover and feed all stray animals in need, as well as provide them with food, care, affection, and medical treatment, and organise Mega Stray Feeding Drives to raise awareness and adoption. "We discover stray animals, pet them, and feed them - no one deserves to be hungry," Mathur adds. (IANS/ MBI)

Indonesian lawmakers passed a law on the relocation of the nation's capital to the island of Kalimantan, which shares borders with Malaysia and Brunei, from the most populated island of Java. The move is a step forward in one of the most ambitious projects initiated by the country's President Joko Widodo, Xinhua news agency reported. Some former presidents had floated ideas of relocating the capital city in the past. The president, widely known as Jokowi, three years ago vowed to relocate the capital city to the province of East Kalimantan due to a number of issues like high population density and land subsidence in Jakarta which is home to more than 10 million people.

Nusantara, which the new capital is called, will be built in two districts in East Kalimantan -- Penajam Paser Utara and Kutai Kartanegara. It is set to occupy about 256,000 hectares of land. The name of Nusantara, which can be translated as an archipelago in English, was chosen by President Jokowi, Minister for National Development Planning Suharso Monoarfa has said. Indonesia, the world's fourth most populous country, is home to some 270 million people, consisting of about 17,000 islands. "The national capital has a central function and serves as a symbol of a country to show the identity of the nation and state," Minister Monoarfa explained during a meeting with lawmakers at the House of Representatives on Tuesday.

The ground-breaking of the construction project that is slated to cost $32 billion was initially expected to be conducted in August 2020, but the Covid pandemic has forced the government to put it on hold. Some of the projects on the construction of the new capital will be carried out by public-private partnerships, and the early stage of the relocation will begin this year and is expected to end in 2024. At this stage, the government will build a presidential palace, parliament buildings, and a housing complex in the primary zone. The move of civil servants at the early stage must be completed before August 16, 2024.

Nusantara will serve as the centre of government, while Jakarta would remain the business and economic centre of Indonesia, Southeast Asia's biggest economy. A day before the lawmakers passed the bill, President Jokowi stressed that that new capital is not only about physically relocating the offices of government institutions, but also "building a new smart city." It has been reported that Nusantara will be headed by an authority chief appointed by the president and its level of position is equal to a minister. Several former government officials which will likely become the chief include Jakarta's former governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama and former minister for research and technology Bambang Brodjonegoro.
