Is there a way to be picked up by the YouTube algorithm? Like “if you get X amount of views in Y amount of time” it will more likely become recommended kind of deal? Or is it basically the more subscribers you have the better chance the algorithm will recommend you

I've heard that you do get recommended more if your videos are consistently over 50% retention time on average. Which is quite a difficult feat in itself :p

I think it depends on both your viewer retention rate and views in x amount of time. But I have also heard that youtube is trying to push more content that is friendly and PG rated.

There is a philosophy that YouTube looks at 'view velocity' meaning, how many views does a video get within a day or two of being published. Obviously, a channel with a lot of subs will get a lot of views but what percentage of their subs watched?

A channel without a lot of subs might have a video take off because of a topical subject.
