I am currently trying to get more subscribers to my YouTube channel(s), my focus right now in this thread is CarlosX360. The main channel is more for general videos, general gaming videos, general topics. I don't use the channel for livestreams because of the way the YT algorithm works. Before the YT update with the "Handles" update, the algorithm is confused between actual videos, and livestreams. There's a new tab for livestreams, but I don't think the discovery is there for livestreams. Shorts have this prioritized because they want to compete against TikTok, which is stupid. The platform was available to YouTube from the start, all they needed to do was treat "Shorts" different (I'm talking about before Shorts was introduced, both in branding, and the way it works.) They worked to make "Shorts" a focal point, which is good. Nice.

Anyway, I was rambling, I'm sorry, I'm a marketing nerd.

My YouTube channel is: https://www.youtube.com/CarlosX360
The TikTok style URL is: https://www.youtube.com/@CarlosX360

Shorts seem to do quite well! Well, they certainly get a lot more views but idk how well that turns into more subs. Glad it is working out for you!
You need to use keywords for the Shorts. Let me put it another way, I posted a new video on my channel around Resident Evil because RE4 Remake was being released... And that video is getting views slowly, because the keywords are being caught. SEO works that way. I was intentionally making the keywords the way it was, but I didn't think the traffic was gonna be that "attractive." Since posting, I now have 82 views so far. That was not something I expected, not with that video... I only expected the "Resident Evil" keyword to work, but it seems to be that the whole sentence "resident evil 4 Prison Monster "Garrador" Boss Battle 2 Confined Cage" is doing the work.

So, recap: When making a video, don't think about what the topic of the video is, yet. What is the subject? Talk about it. THEN start thinking about WHO is the video for, how do I reach those people?

For example, if the subject is Diablo 4, what is the subject of the video? If it is a boss battle, then type "Diablo 4 Witch Boss Battle" in the subject line. You are not just using a keyword, you're also using the subject matter of the video. Subconciously, you need to treat that video like a strategy guide. Make sense? Do this with EVERYTHING you do on YouTube.

Keywords + Subject Matter + Who is this for? That "who is this for?" may not exist as a video, but it's in the video, that makes a user stay on the video.

Anyway, back to the road to 100:

Hmm makes a lot of sense. The platform is certainly a learning experience all the time.
 
A new "Top 10" is live now! I edited the video myself. I learned a little bit from Canva, from a simplistic perspective, and revisited editing from a software once again. I didn't know that "import" would bring your vids to the top left corner, and you can drag and drop. I learned a lot from Canva, and quickly understood what to do on the software side of things. So I installed VideoPad, and got to editing.



Ccompanies need to do what Canva does for instagram videos. I need to ask Canva to add YouTube Shorts to the list...
