    So...here it goes:

    Vanoss was actually my first inspiration to become a YouTube channel, then others, Berleezy, Cinemassacre, Coryxkenshin, Ownage Pranks, and plenty others. I aspire to put light, chill, and laughter in people's days. Every viewer and fan is on the same plane as me and i always show my appreciation and love to interact with y'all... But I have to admit I did bot on some videos, and it's almost obvious, not all of them though, but as I'm growing older and not 12 or 14 anymore, botting isn't going to get you anywhere, and what's the fun in pretending like the success is there like it'll come that fast? Honestly, I don't look up upon botting, and it's a waste of time, and it's cheating. And cheating is trash. At first, the only reason I've ever botted was because I was surrounded by so much good talk about it at first, how good it is for your channel, so I was put under the false belief and impression that it was beneficial, and I just couldn't stop for a bit, being desperate and impatient like I was is totally NOT the way to go, and I feel like an a-hole for doing something so foolish and unfair, so I'm sorry for that because I know someone out there is disappointed, heck I'm even disappointed. It's just when you have barely any active subs that are moderately proportional to the ones you have, it's a tough position to be in. They always say, "do it for yourself", "do it because it's your passion, something you love doing". I do love what i'm doing, but all love needs to be shared in order for it to feel good, you know what i mean? I can love my content, and my hobby all i want, but if there's not a lot of people to share it with, then it's almost pointless (as so it seems). You can be placed in a room, all by yourself, with the things you love, games, or a toy, electronics, systems, books, computers, TVs, but there will be nothing on this Earth that will make you feel better than people being there for you, supporting you, seeing the same you do, reassuring you that what you believe about yourself is right and just makes you feel successful, on top of this world. I was in denial of seeing that the success wasn't there, so early, forcing thousands of views on my channel up until the last video, just because I believed they deserve the attention (I still do believe that of course, I have pride in my content) Anyways, all that aside, I will be getting more active on my channel soon, and I will give it my all, it's just that when the recognition isn't there, it weighs you down, and makes you feel like what you're doing is going to no use. Now I'm not here to complain, or be an edgy boy, and want pity like an attention-seeker., I'ma be real with y'all and that's just how I feel. So if any if you guys, the fans here, the viewers, everyone here, who are feeling the same way if you have a channel, or if you decide to check me out or share, I'd gladly appreciate it I'm sorry for the sad-ish tone in this comment, I'm no where near this depressing on my channel lol, I save that for my own time because we all go through it sometimes. Anyways y'all, thank you for reading this long sermon lol, it just feels good to put things out there for people to hear (see in this case ) and i really appreciate it. I hope you guys have a good rest of the day ☀ ηαωαя out

    Tho i don't condone botting.

    Props.

    You deserve major kudos for admitting your mistake and being so honest, there is nothing more satisfying than watching your channel grow naturally and botting will only get you so far due to blocks that google have.

    But still this was a good post good for you for admitting your mistakes and passing the knowledge onto others.

    Thank you. I understand that success is earned, not given. I'd rather have a less amount of views, but all real, than a large amount of views, but all fake.

    29 videos in 5 months for a gaming channel is not enough to grow exponentially. Your titles are lacking, your tags are weak and most of them are not relevant to your videos, and your descriptions are non-existent... You're basically bringing a butter knife to a gun fight. If you can't give YouTube the data it needs to push your videos out to new viewers, you'll never see any growth.

    Then tell me how to make better tags, and descriptions, and give what data YouTube needs. I'll have to disagree with you about the titles, and the video output, I have a busy life, and what I put out is the minimum requirement of consistency. However I can try to put out more often. Since you seem to know about this stuff more than I do, I kindly ask for a few tips of advice/tools. I accept criticism but if you're going to be someone that will be like "you're trash" or something, then I can't value your opinions, understandably.

    For better tags, I recommend a YouTube add-on called TubeBuddy, it really helps, it basically suggests tags and tells you what ones are popular and unpopular, it also tells you when the best time is to upload based on your channels algorithm. It's free too, and ofcourse you can pay for more features but the free version is good enough. The list is endless in what it can do for you

    Reported. JK. I feel the same way about using Google Adwords for some of the videos I was more proud of. It's a legit way to get views, but I feel like a spammer. I feel the same way about my channel and subs, with not really ever getting views and interaction (and having lost 22 over 4 years or so while still being below 100) and I pretty much have the same resolution. So stop copying me. Just kid, just kid. But yeah, I'm trying to be more active with my channel. Inactivity and inconsistency will kill you and I've been very much of both over the 4 years I've been around. My kingdom hasn't been amassed like I wanted. I'm trying to polish things up as much as myself and I'm glad to see I'm not the only one. It's good of you to admit to all that and try the legit way. And don't worry, other youtubers that are now famous have done some dirty stuff to help out. Hell, Jontron tagged all kinds of popular stuff in his first few videos. They might still be there for you to see if you check. I saw them for myself a few times. I don't think COD, Xbox 360, or PS3, had anything to do with Daikatana... You've sort of strengthened my resolve to not gaf about views and subs, so maybe I'll stop with Adwords completely. I might try a channel trailer and put an add out for that and that's it. I do suggest that. Saw someone else do it and it reminded me that it might be a good idea. That way it's just a trailer and isn't as spammy. Worst part is, only my in-stream adds get approved, so people are ASSAULTED with my crap while trying to watch someone else. Not a good idea. But yeah, do a channel trailer and try that. And good for you!

    i agree with this , its all about the tags, description and title, also, your videos need to be more in trend, make sure its things people are searching up, even if you make a videos that arent trendy everyday but on the 7th day make a trendy video, then thatll still help grow your channel, instead of making videos that nobody will be searching up

    Although people say that tags,description & titles are essential, I think interacting with people is also a key to success.
    You say you got inspired by Vanoss & other youtubers, if you're subscribed to them, whenever they release a new video and the video is
    less than 1,000 views, I suggest commenting something funny, then upvoting your own comment.

    Usually if you have a decent icon and are one of the first person who comments, people will more likely thumbs up your comment
    making you the top comment = people checking out your channel.

    This is how I get people to check out my channel, -_- although im a girl and my icon is basically me smiling, I guess that plays a factor too. LOL.

    I will be making a indepth guide on this today on the forums :)
