That commenting on new videos idea sounds good. But using the same comment on every video looks like the definition of spamming. It's also something that YT could very easily create automated filters to scan for.

There's a very active subreddit for YouTube that you can read to get all kinds of useful info. YouTube employees answer questions on there too.

The subscriber is everything and you can call it a life of a YouTube Channel. If you don't have enough subscribers on your channel then you are not successful.

I suppose I could vary it a bit, or just post something totally original each time. However I don't think it would be a good idea to reply to other people's comments, because replies get buried and then you have to click on "View reply" to see it.

I'm just concerned about what would happen if I commented on many videos per day, which I'm dying to do, if it will help. I've already posted on a few videos with a couple of million views.

That's not how we do things in Russia, comrade.

RE: What really makes a Youtube channel successful?
Good advice in this thread. I'm not a content creator but some things I've noticed:

1) There are sites where you can see who's doing well (roughly) by plugging their channel name (can't find them now using my phone - look around, they're out there). If those numbers are even close to accurate, it speaks volumes as to what's popular and what really draws ad dollars. This information doesn't show who's been demonetized or penalized for swearing, etc., just raw views, related stats and potential dollars.

2) Content matters, constantly. One or two great videos every couple of months interspersed with mostly boring videos, unrelated content or nothing at all ruins the momentum. People expect a continuous and reliable product. If you don't care about monetization and just want to vlog, well okay, but don't expect many returning viewers.

3) Some of the best channels I watch are done by people with prior experience in video production or regular local TV. They get it, in terms of what makes a video watchable. They also have a formula for the videos which cuts down on production and editing time, which can quickly take over your entire day. Because they are more efficient they can produce more and spend less time fiddling around with rework. I notice about three updates a week from each them via email alerts. It keeps me coming back.

Ironically, these guys aren't necessarily the best at what they do, but they deliver in the best way, which makes their channels more attractive for returning viewers. Nothing wrecks a video faster than dead air, bad lighting, crappy sound, echoes, or for me, an impossible to listen to voice like Mike Cernovich.

4) Of course, you'll need to invest in the right equipment and software - don't take shortcuts by using YouTube editing tools.

Hope this helps.

RE: What really makes a Youtube channel successful?
No u never want to spam, no comment should be identical...I got this idea from a YouTube name Jaxblade. His channel been around for years but if u check certain “nerdy” or “fitness” related videos you’ll see he has top comment on a bunch of those videos even before he made his fame. I tried it and it worked. It’s time consuming but it works.

Think of YouTube as a club promoter. It’ll only promote you if it thinks there’s value in you. Also YouTube kinda does a background check. If you have many friends on Facebook or a bunch of IG followers then you’ll have a much better chance at getting big fast. I know this because I helped this guy with 45K followers on IG get his YouTube channel off the ground. Took him 3 months to get 8k subs

Bingo. That isn't the only one, actually it's better than others but point is it's easy to see who is likely making what.
