    Hi all,
    I was just wondering, because I'm not sure on this. I wonder how a video on youtube gets thousands of views, like right away?, or after a bigger youtuber mentions the video?.

    If you posted a video that was destined to get a hundred thousand views, does some YT algorithm just make it get thousands of views telling by how many likes it has?.

    Thanks in advance for any ideas and tips.

    I suppose that if a big channel mentions you, their instinct is to follow what that person tells them to do and have a look. Take Pewdiepie for example, he mentioned a few people like Jacksepticeye, Maria Joyce and poppy and im not saying it made their channel but it definitely helped them grow quicker. Also if it gets shared across the internet quickly you can expect thousands of people to watch it and also then share it themselves.

    I did a hot sauce challenge on my channel, It was about 4 months ago and its hit 17k views ( i only have 490 subscribers) and it keeps on growing :)

    It's the same thing I'm wondering too, you kniw the mechanics of it all.
    I'm not sure about that, wouldn't that give the people behind the desk at youtube too much power.

    tons of reasons like others mentioned. I also believe if you jump on something that is trending, you have a better chance.

    far from viral but I did a response video about Steve Harvey making fun of Asian men and that video got tons of activity within the first 8 days or so. Can't recall the exact amount but it must have been at least 10K plus within that week alone.

    The algorithm constantly tests sequences of videos to try to find the longest possible watch time for a group of users. If your video ends up in one of this videos it will become viral. It took almost 6 months for a our most "viral" video (1.7 million views) to become viral,
    BTW if a bunch of your videos end up in such sequence - all your channel will become viral!

    PS. Likes and dislikes are not very important for the algorithm. Watch time (how your video performs in a sequence of videos) matters.

    PPS. When I say "sequence of videos" I mean subject related sequence of videos (whatever this subject may be).
