The rules about sub4sub don't really matter. More important is the strategy is a horrible one that will not do your channel any good. All you are doing is collecting a bunch of dead subscribers that won't watch your videos.
If you want to get a good objective point of view trying to figure out why some videos get promoted and why others don't, then

If you are interested in studying the tips & tricks from the master of YouTube, MrBeast, here is a playlist with about 80 videos... some REALLY good advice in here..
I also recommend binge watching MrBeast if you haven't already
Personally I would treat it like you would with a blog post and do not overdo it stuffing your channel with keywords etc.
Use relevant keywords etc. but try to write it for humans and not the algorithm.
