It all starts somewhere

A good method to fight the new online trends of losing web traffic today is Youtube. Even if you're fairly new here on Hubpages, or just visiting this writers network, all the web experiences you carry with you are worth something for sure.

The author of this article just reached pay out levels about 6 months back, and has 3 years total web experience thus far as a pro networking professional. Even though the pay out within that past 6 months or so period of time seems fairly low, doesn't mean it cannot grow and expand. If your looking to find ways around getting low web traffic views, try working on your content you've been publishing or submitting onto social feeds and all.

Your web location should be attractive enough to draw crowds


Useful Tips while mastering your digital craft

  • Never over do it, or under do it, this takes a true balancing act.
  • Take rest breaks often from networking, and allow your viewers time to catch up to your content.
  • Play fair, others have great content as well, and so share with them often if & whenever possible
  • Get to know your FB friends, message them from time to time, visit their timeline
  • Learn of unique ways to present your video content to people
  • Give folks facetime on networks like Google+ (Hangout's)
  • Keep a positive outlook on all networks, never share negativity
  • Don't spam, or appear as a spammer (This means you need to share sparingly)
  • Build into youtube video content thats helpful, useful & insightful
  • Your quality of your videos will take them further and further as you go along
  • Smile if you can, it helps when your curating, sharing content and all
  • Don't brag so much about your accomplishments it turns many away
  • Allow your content to sell itself, great content has a voice of its own

Try to purchase video tooling of higher technical quality


The demand for Higher Quality Content

Today quality control is an imperative and when it comes to top notch delivery of web based content. Staying on top of the current trends counts for a huge volume of web based traffic either lost or gained, and mainly because the rules to the online internet games keep changing over night it seems. So, try to keep track of the latest search engine requirements, updates, and so that you can make the necessary adjustments to your SEO you've implemented if any.

If you want to increase the chances of earning during rough search engine updatesl, one must reinforce their chances to succeed online by extending thier networking potential onto video platforms, as well as by using social sharing elements from across the full spectrum of the Internet.

Customize your Youtube channel and improve your content

Potential Viewer feedback & Networking response

Depending on what type of networking potential you may have amounted, will also determine how effective you can manage to adjust, but if you don't communicate fairly by sharing effectively, commenting, messaging, returning answers for clients questions etc.., and just expect folks to pore in love to your networks alone with higher views. Well than your good productive web traffic days may be over for a long time, until you figure your way out of that selfish type of issue of not sharing, or not providing useful feedback.

Establishing oneself online also comes with a huge responsibility to your viewers over time and as the numbers grow vast. You somewhat owe it to your potential clientele and you should try to provide them with a much needed feedback mechanism, if not yourself making effective communications directly, this is to keep them attended to virtually and digitally, or loss of your viewers and supporters may be soon and imminent as well, and depending on what claims you place into action, and how you choose to interact on all personal or online business levels.

Sharing your networking experiences works wonders today

Growing your Youtube Channel

  • Once you create a YouTube account, think of a niche that's catching good wind, and massive traffic stats there
  • Then try doing your research on many outside web locations as well for such a niche
  • Study it!, master whatever info you can manage to locate by any and all sources, and in all ways professionally, and the true social dynamics to it all, social media outlets and elements if any do apply
  • This will at least give you a platform to rest your content on, and make it relevant to what people are in search for there on YouTube, it gets better over time as you work on it
  • Don't forget to monetize your uniquely owned content on YouTube
  • Monetize means to turn on the revenue streams there, there is an option to do so
  • Customize your YouTube location especially if its a business behind it all, to do so from your channel click 'Channel Settings' then follow options there. (If you have images try them to get the right look, but make sure their exclusively yours you captured)

So what's next:

From that point onwards its all about titling with keywords that gain higher traffic views, use of tags there, and descriptions.

Once its all said and done you're off to the races on the web pretty much using video power, and you will surely need to tap into your social, and professional networking avenues to share this new video content.

Making this video was fun, use of nature videos have no match

Sharing tools are vast on the Internet

Utilize networks like IFTTT, which can help you to share your content across multiple platforms automatically with a single online action, post, interaction, or communication, and without need to do anything more other then make the initial connections on their network.

There's so many sharing tools on the web today, so its very important to learn to network effectively with them, if done correctly with balance (about 5-10 posts per day max, watch your commenting levels too), and making the right human connections things can set sail over time for sure, but it does indeed take dedication, resilience, and the art of being real.

Using sharing locations like Digg, Stumbleupon, Pinterest, Reddit, Pearltrees, and so many others, helps us to leverage our ability to boost potential web traffic, and how it works on each network depends on your knowledge of such a platform, your level of social activity there and the overall quality of your content you decide to share there.

There's many bookmarking tools available across the web as well, that can be uploaded to your web browser which makes it as easy as a click of a button to make the sharing across multiple platforms occur instantaneously. Just be advised as to how often, and how frequent you choose to utilize such sharing features, and tooling as to not be considered that of a spammer on those networks.

Power networking & Social curation

There are other alternatives today, have you ever tried to use such a network known as Pearltrees. Its powerful at social sharing factors, it takes a bit of time for you to learn how to collect your web content there, arrange it and all, but it truly is worth it over time for sure, because its all about sharing socially web based content in more intuitive visual ways, and from anywhere you choose to share. Read More....

Social curation is powerful folks, look up Pearltrees, take some time to study how it works, and you just never know how your newer interaction may fair off, so far my user location has reached super heights there with making effective communications (receiving visitors), but with content curation (human organization of web based content) alone, and not having to communicate much with users, they're attracted to the shear volume and presentation of such content.

People are in seek of high quality content for the most part, so its imperative that we find ways to use our web experiences, and knowledge as a whole to help provide others pathways to find such info. This is an undeniable method to attract viewers, increase web traffic, and to succeed today, and is the reason for all the SEO chatter that goes on here on the Internet.

Back to Video Powers & Sharing

The video up above shows in detail how using youtube video is highly effective, this is where leveraging your video content can help, and it's truly powerful indeed. Lets hope this info helps folks out, and once you tie in your Youtube video powers into other platforms you responsible for editing, sharing, or what have you the potential to succeed becomes far beyond as well.

Growing a good following (Subscribers) there on Youtube is pretty tough, but the key is quality content people can either use or is truly entertaining to them as well. Many hub writers have managed to learn how traffic volumes on Youtube works, this author was successful at using basketball skills, drills, knowledge and tips to gain much higher views.

Sharing on youtube is as real as sharing on any other network, and don't ever spam anyone or else that's lights out for your youtube account, and potentially for your online career. Make sure all of your content you post and upload there is authentically yours, and if not provide credit to the source, but never monetize content that has copyrighted content without asking for permission to do so, or else your account once again will be in hot waters, and will definitively get shut down thereafter.

Filming nature also works wonders if a person lacks other skills to voice into a video, or is camera shy for what ever reasons (Prepare for winter storm filming it works wonders there as well).

Learning to become more creative with recording inanimate objects helps while making videos for poetry, music, art displays, tech videos ect..., as well as in the whole film making process and development learning phases, and simply learning to explore other means of coming up with unique content.

You can embed Trees directly into your website you own

Regaining motivation and momentum to keep going

If your new to things here on hubpages or elsewhere on other networks, your online potential at this moment on the web is unknown pretty much, but what is known is that if you're in fact loaded with much intensity to succeed, a burning desire to make it, well then you won't worry to much about the changes taking place online, and everywhere you decide to turn.

Just try to think of it all as yet another obstacle to topple over when web traffic dies down, and as if you were starting from scratch like most of us, then continue to navigate further and further into molding your craft to the point of no return.

This is the best advice one could give to all new people out here online, whom are thinking that it's not possible to succeed here due to all the talk about low web traffic. Actually anything is possible just never quit dreaming, and activating your skills to the best of your ability, also own up to your potential, learn new things all the time, and have fun doing it.

Any negative thought process towards your efforts, is a sure start towards the death of any online momentum that anyone seeks to gain, and truly is a self defeating purpose to. So instead try to remain as positive about things as possible, and at all times.

The other truth is things will always have a tendency to die down here on the web, because the initiatives others make whom own such web space, functions, coding, updating, and overall formats of things are continuously ever evolving daily, and nightly. So to keep up with it all is also imperative, if you are to survive any issues dealing with web traffic drops, or potential loss of motivation as a web author.

      @Cogerson, Thanks for the rave review of my hub here, I did my very best to point out things that aren't so good about becoming discouraged today, and also for those who need it most.

      I'm here to earn a passive income for sure, and so I know how it feels to lose online potential and in such a short period of time, but I will not ever give up faith in my writing techniques, my ability to inspire, and dig deep into the web to help others in all ways I know how, you know!

      It's imperative that we all find alternative methods to survive, and this one I'm taking to the bank for sure, cheers to powerful writing, and meeting awesome folks who care today!

      Thanks for the comment and cool visit @chrisinhawaii,

      I use to be intimidated by thinking of making videos as well, until I purchased my smart phone.

      I played with that darn thing for over 2 years before I could build up the courage to get serious, and try to purchase a camcorder.

      Once I moved into learning to utilize my new Toshiba x400 I was in the money, and ready for Youtube, because of the resolution, and higher video HD quality, it took all my having fun, and playing around with the smart phone experience to a whole new level, and I still have loads more to learn, but at least I'm trying my best now to make effort at it all.

      I hoe that little story can inspire you a bit to give it a try, the balancing act of managing multiple networks will come automatically over time, as you adjust to video creation for sure, somehow you fit it in for sure.

      Good Luck!

      Videos kinda scare me...I mean, the thought of making them, that is. There's just so much to do. It's hard, because you want to take advantage of every resource and opportunity, but how do you do it all without stretching too thin?

      HubPages, Squidoo, blogging, freelancing, Facebook...I keep thinking of adding Youtube to the mix, but where do I fit it in? I can barely keep up as it is, you know?

      I guess I just need to get my Super Hubbing Powers activated!

      Thanks for making such a great, in-depth hub and not just spitting out 300 words of nothing. We need more hubs like these on here...

      Voted up , awesome, and shared! Aloha

      This was very interesting and full of useful information. I've had a YouTube account for a while now but I'm only just starting to realise how I can use it to promote my work. It all takes time and a lot of research but hopefully it will be worth it.

      You are the man, Mike! I learn something new every single time you write. This one was particularly helpful to me; as you know, I have done videos, but I really haven't maximized them for viewing potential or profit. You have given me ideas buddy and I am grateful for the little push out of my comfort zone.

      Have a great weekend my brother.
