A while back I wrote about a site called ViewTubeTrain that allowed you to submit your Youtube videos and had a pool of people that would go on there and watch the videos. The idea was to trade views of their videos for views of yours. Simple right? The more you watched, the more credits you earned, and the more your videos were viewed. Well I went back to check on that site the other day and it is now gone. Bummer...
Anyway, I discovered another site almost just like it called UTube Train. It has a similar function, except this site is not automated. You have to watch videos for points, and when you have watched the video, you can click to match another one. Since it's not automated, there is less of a chance to game the system to artificially boost your points. You can also use this site to get mor subscribers to your Youtube channel as well.
I am currently trying out UTube Train on one of my old videos, we'll see how it goes.
You might be wondering why you would want to boost your views like this. The reason is Youtube is a social media site. Kind of like Digg, or Reddit in a way. The more views your video gets, the higher rank it gets. Also, the more views you have, the higher it ranks in video searches on Youtube, and on Google as well.
If you are trying to get a video more views, you might want to give UTube Train a shot.
