10k backilnks (including non follow) in nine months seems a little "unnatural" seo to me.
@CCarter did you ever get the chance to pursue this youtube endevour?I would put 100% of that into YouTube pre-roll ADs and production of videos that are targeting specific cities within the content and copy. A little secret that most people don't realize is when a user clicks "SKIP" on an AD the advertiser doesn't pay anything. So if you are clever enough you can get that 5 seconds of branding in place before they are allowed to click "SKIP".
So the game plan is this (BTW I am about to launch a campaign doing EXACTLY this for 2 operations):
1. Find the countries and cities with the target audience I am after.
2. Create Video content each with an intro stating "Hey Chicago, are you looking for XYZ", Logo and spokesperson right there on screen. I will create this customized content for each city and country I am targeting in the country's language of course.
3. Then run a video campaign against YouTube Channels using the customized level of targeting. You can even target people that Googled "Buy XYZ", then later on went to YouTube to watch videos on another topic and hit them with an AD "Hey Chicago, were you looking to Buy XYZ?"
I might do a case study on this - with one or both of the operations I will be launching this initiative with, cause I have a bet with @Ryuzaki on being able to do a sick ROI with a low budget. I didn't tell him that all those "SKIP" clicks still get the branding done though.
YouTube is extremely cheap right now, (especially if you are targeting non-english countries), and can get specific to "30-41 females" with "income level above $100K" living in "Austin Texas" that Googled "Buy XYZ" recently. Then create content with an actress with a Texan accent that looks like the exact demographic, and start off with some crazy low budget like $200, sort of hard not to make money unless your content sucks. And even if it sucks you can create 3-10 variations of the same AD relatively cheap, Fiverr spokesperson.
Now imagine getting that level of targeted clicks for $0.10 to $0.50 - even at 3% conversion rate off of $200 spend, that's would turn $200 into at least 12 to 60 conversions, multiply by that whatever your product/service costs, lets say $50, that's $600 to $3,000 in revenue from $200 spend.
But this is only possible right now cause YouTube is EXTREMELY cheap, yet you can get super targeted like a Mofo, and create ADs literally tailored to the target audience. It's like the Adwords days where you could get $0.05 to $0.10 a click. In 5-6 years it'll be over-saturated eventually but might as well strike while the iron is hot.
On-top just think about this, YouTube gets 5 BILLION video views daily. There are videos about everything, so there is definitely videos about your niche that you can use YouTube pre-roll ADs to get in-front of.
Or you could waste 9 months with SEO. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
But none of this means jack-shit without proof, so I gotta show the non-believer @Ryuzaki what's really going on.
Yes, multiple. In the last 3 months or so I’ve been guiding a BuSo member in their own Youtube endevour.@CCarter did you ever get the chance to pursue this youtube endevour?
I don't understand - Why? You seriously aren't willing to invest 3 years into a brand to get to a point where you are making $20-40K a month in revenue? This thought process is wild.which is why doing YouTube for Adsense income is not a wise idea IMO.
I think the long-term value of a website is higher than a YouTube channel due to the short-term cycle that is YouTube success.I don't understand - Why?

What are you after I guess? I know a BuSo member that spent 6 years working in their brand and exited with 7 figures - an affiliate site mind you. SEO itself is a long term game plan, so why not expose yourself to the massive amount of YouTube Traffic as well?
I see your situation - you are separating YouTube channels from being a medium for brands to expand upon and putting it on its own.I think the long-term value of a website is higher than a YouTube channel due to the short-term cycle that is YouTube success.
Actually, it would seem like it's the exact opposite.Very few YouTube content creators remain at their peak for more than 1 year because of the way YouTube works in regards to publish frequency. In other words, viewers on YouTube get sick of watching the same person over and over again faster due to the fact that publish frequency is so important for growing on YouTube.
Yes- maybe I should have specified that I was coming at this with a "YouTube vs. Website" mentality.I see your situation - you are separating YouTube channels from being a medium for brands to expand upon and putting it on its own.
100% agree. What are your thoughts on also using popular parasite SEO sites like Medium as marketing platforms?As a "personality" - regarding a person, that individual needs to be able to create a "personal brand" that exists outside of any one platform, by being active on as many as possible - if their audience is there.
As a business - youtube, twitter, and social platforms are mediums to send your message out into the world.
