    Question YouTube has deleted mine subscribe

    More views than subscribers

    thats a good thing! More views than subscribers means YouTube is sharing out your content and/or people are rewatching it. That is exactly what you want!

    YouTube Question Am I in the wrong niche?

    yup yup @Kari B has the right idea! You should really focus solely on making that first 100 videos (20 at a time!) while ignoring the external nonsense. Just make videos. Focus on making them better. Every twenty videos evaluate what's working. Do that for your first 100 and you will be in a...

    YouTube Tips Why rush for monetizing [tips for those wanting monetization]

    Need Advice How quickly should a sequel be released

    If you have material for it you should go ahead and run with it while it is fresh. Later when you have a larger subscriber base and/or a consistent line of traffic there will be other things to consider. But for now its a good practice to make videos as consistently as possible and try as many...

    Question Is tubebuddy's promotional area useful?

    There have been several channels that I subscribed to as a result of the promotion area... and that subscription alone means very little but since I'm subscribed and see them here on the forums I am more apt to being excited about subsequent posts.

    YouTube Question Declined monetization

    YT is goofy about Affiliate links, but that shouldnt be a direct reason to deny monetization. If they are pointing at TOS i would have no clue what the issue is. Without diving directly into your work behind the scenes it is hard to guess what the issue is; your videos are original, clean and...
