    Need Advice What can a small channel expect from an affiliate link partnership?

    I have a small channel, just 1,200 viewers. The channel is a travel tips channel for Nepal, a little country in the Himalayas between China and India. I thought a travel insurance company would be a good match. But in 4 years of promoting this travel insurance platform, they tell me I haven't...

    YouTube Opinion The Dislike Button and Why #BringBackDislikes is Stupid

    This is the way I thought it worked, but my videos are shown a lot at first and then it goes 8 likes or so and then here comes the dislikes and I get to 4 and the ratio goes to 50% like/dislike ratio and they stop showing it to people. But am I wrong and the algorithm just deosn't notify that...

    YouTube Question Something to do for the famous anonymous people on Youtube

    I keep seeing the same people in various Youtube videos. There is a Buddhist monk that stands at a stupa here in Kathmandu. Sometimes he's elsewhere. Everyone seems to get a picture or video of him. There are so many of these people I think it would be fun to do some sort of contest to reward...

    YouTube Opinion The Dislike Button and Why #BringBackDislikes is Stupid

    What if there was another way? Youtube could make a 1-5 sliding star thing and next to it there could be the running average, 3.5 rating.

    YouTube Opinion Dislike abuse issue & a better banning/block feature.

    I have someone in my life that I suspected was giving me dislikes. They left my reality for a while and I got hardly any dislikes. Recently, I had communication with him and now I'm getting more dislikes. I even got a dislike on a peaceful drone video of rural Nepal and the Himalayas. Someone...

    Official How To Get More Views and Subscribers

    I think they should have a newbie shelf and have people up or down vote the video, maybe with a box for things like topic, mechanical issues like lighting and camera, and maybe something about how they personally present. Some videos are really horrible and someone needs to tell them. I know it...

    YouTube Tips I'm having a problem getting affiliate sponsors/links. Is this normal?

    I'm retired and living in a developing country. I only use my debit card in the ATM and live on my retirement. I started a crowdfunding project and got turned down for the merchant/banking part of it. Next, I've had a link for an affiliate account for a long time and never made a sale. As it...

    Official Tips and Tricks for Collaborations

    I love to collaborate with other channels. I recently came across an informative post that made the next video a bit easier. I gave her a shoutout and offered to give her a plug for the use of her suggestions plus I gave her an end screen. She only has a few hundred subs, but it doesn't matter...

    YouTube Question Should I use the entire 500 characters for my tags?

    So, what I just started doing is going through 1 phrase at a time in the Keyword Explorer and putting it in a list with the number Keyword Explorer gives me. Then I write them in the description in the order of the one with the largest number and make a bit of a sentence about the video. It's a...

    TubeBuddy YT Sponsorship Scams

    What if your video is outside of the US? We did a few hotel stays in exchange for a video. Is it a problem if they are in Nepal? The value was always under $100. I can take each video down and update it, but I'd rather not if it's no big deal for unmonetized channels in Asia, although I am from...

    YouTube Question Should I use the entire 500 characters for my tags?

    Someone told me not to put so many tags for my videos. She said the bots only see the first little bit. But even if this is so, the bots will only get better and will read more as time goes on. How many should we use?

    Answered I don't think Keyword Explorer is working right for me.

    Thank you so much. Lots of info for me to work with. I just thought I could shave off an hour or two. After 130 detailed videos, I was hoping it would start to go a bit faster. It isn't. I've had 1200+ for many months and it's stopped at 1250 and doesn't seem to be moving. I'm doing the best...

    Thanks so much. I'll do that. I'm really lost in all this stuff. Nothing seems to work.

    Answered I don't think Keyword Explorer is working right for me.

    I have a channel that I cannot seem to grow so I upgraded to the Legend level. I like the keyword explorer because it shows if a term is a good, searchable term. However, it's taking me so long to find the words, phrases to put in. If I don't think of it, it's totally pointless. For example, I...

    Answered Question about TubeBuddy University

    I just saw an advert on FB about getting TubeBuddy University with a new account. Is it available for people with Legend level? Maybe I missed this, but I don't think I've heard of it before. It sounds awesome. I'm learning a lot just from the Legend upgrade. I highly recommend it.

    Video Review Can you please tell me what I'm doing wrong?

    So sorry: Here's another one. I'll post it in the edit. Here's a review I gave. I think I copied the other one from the Youtube link. https://community.tubebuddy.com/index.php?threads/48809/

    Channel Review Channel Review- What Can I Do to Improve My Channel?

    I could only watch the trailor and the one about not having a dad. Very depressing. It's true that we succeed out of our brokenness. My brother studdered and became one of the top car salesmen in the US. I was a timid child and ended up traveling the world and having a Youtube channel. I've even...

    Video Review Can you please tell me what I'm doing wrong?

    I didn't see that I'd gotten a response. Sorry I missed this. Thank you so much. I'll do this from now on and yes, we just cannot seem to nail the thumbnail concept. Such awesome feedback (and kind). It just clicked for me. Find a good way to make the title a ranking word and then include it in...

    Video Review Can you please tell me what I'm doing wrong?

    I thought I did that. So, the URL of what I post for the person? I'll go back and read the instructions again. I'll do another review and see if I can do it right.
