Subscribers is just as good for the following, higher ranking on youtube...more likes and comment. But yeah views does bring in the money but unless you have a viral video or a video that blew up even some great videos won't get a lot of views...I have a ton of awesome IRL vlogs and videos that have very little views, which is why I choose to build my fan base up first. As far as uploading too much I've pumped out 52 videos in like a month and a half. I try to get a vlog up daily if not a story or something because the more content the better chance of growing your channel and getting higher ranked on the tube...but if the content is trash then uploading too much is pointless.Subscribers doesn't really mean anything.
