Need YouTube comments? The give and take comment thread
Comments on your YouTube videos does not only make your videos and channel appear much more active, but it also plays an incredibly important role in how your YT videos and YT channel will rank in YouTube and in Google.
As a WA family why not help each other out in blowing the competition out of the water through YouTube comment exchange here on WA:
So here are the steps:
Step 1: Comment on at least 3 YouTube videos.
Step 2: Post a link to your YouTube video that you need comments on at the very top of this discussion (as a new comment).
Step 3: Very important: You have to watch the video from beginning to end or allow the video to finish playing in the background, otherwise our average view times in YouTube will be hugely affected and will lead to poor rankings within YouTube as audience retention is a very important aspect for YouTube video rank.
Step 4: This should not be a necessary step. However, should you not have your favour returned after your request, please assume that for one reason or another your comment has not been seen. Please private message to request the favour be returned.
Make sure you do not skip step one. It is important and it will lead you to getting more comments on your YouTube video. :) Also please do make sure that your video content you request comments on is original video content. Donwloading other video creators' content and then uploading it to YouTube as your own is not only unethical but also very likely to be in violation of copyright infringement, unless of course you have permission to upload another video creators' content. It goes without saying that this is not the kind of practise that we would like to encourage here.
NB Rule: No solicitation of comments are allowed - this is strictly a comments EXCHANGE thread. Of course you are welcome as a kindness to comment, like and subscribe to anyones video if you have no video for comments exchange to take place. The rule is in regards to solicitation (pestering) others here for comments when they have no videos available for comments exchange to take place. In short, this thread works exactly the same as Kyle's website comments exchange site and the same rules apply.
Note: You can certainly request for subscribes and likes as well, but I would like us to be mindful that not everyone would like the idea of being forced into having to subscribe or to like, even though you liked their videos and subscribed to their channel. We will therefore keep that subjective to a personal choice and I would ask that we respect that. The expectation would be however, if you use this thread, that you will be prepared to at the very least exchange YT video comments.
Further note that YouTube have new privacy features built in for a while now. So what happens is that some people have their YouTube accounts set to private and some have it set to public. This means that when someone that has a private account subscribes to your channel you will see your subscriber tally going up but you will not know who subscribed to you.
So please do keep this in mind when exchanging subscribes here. Just because you cannot physically see someone following you on YouTube does not mean that they have not subscribed to you. If you are in doubt, simply ask the person for proof if you feel that is necessary. How can you prove it to someone? Simple. The subscribe button on their YouTube channel will no longer show red as per my example. See screenshot below.
Those that have their YouTube accounts set to public will show that they are subscribed to you. Many do not even know that their accounts are private as it is private by default when creating a new YouTube account. You physically need to set it to public. This is to allow for more privacy.
Also for those that may be confused about self-promotion that is not allowed on WA. It is different when it comes to a give and take situation where everyone benefits. This is exactly the same as the website comments thread and the website feedback thread created by Kyle, plus Kyle is aware of this YT video thread I created here. Now without further ado, start posting and commenting away! To your YouTube success!
Ps. Here is a screenshot of Kyle's approval of this thread.
