That's a completely different issue. That is related to traffic and views. When Youtube advises "list video as Private or Unlisted to ensure Ad Suitability to maximize revenue.", it is because their MONETIZATION algorithms need a bit of time to crawl new videos, read the metadata etc so that YouTube can place ads on new videos. If someone doesn't follow that advice, ie they upload a video and then immediately make it public, there is a chance it won't have relevant ads for the first few days.For me "Hitting the ground running" means nothing. My videos don't start building traffic for months. My top videos right now were all released over a year ago. I don't know how other tubers get all these views in the first 24-hours, and then they get nothing. What are they posting, the latest news videos, or something?
When I said "hitting the ground running", I was referring to giving YT enough time to place relevant ads on my new vids.
As to how to get lots of views for new vids:
-Use the "latest video" endscreen on all your uploads.
- Use the community tab to build hype for next video by pre-selling it and giving the exact day and time when it will be released. Post video on community tab when it goes live (use scheduled posts to automate it)
-Build up a big following on social media and also use it to hype up your next video and also say when it will be released. Post the video when it goes live (again use automated tweets, facebook posts etc)
