My little YouTube channel is just there for me to share goofups and repair stuff on the Nieuport, along with some oldie but goodie flight sim videos I made a long time ago.

I put up a very short video of a crappy landing back in 2017 as a laugh, and it had around 250 views all told.

Until last weekend, that is, when apparently it was plucked by the algorithm for recommendation.

Now it has over 67,000 views, of which 64,339 have been in the last five days, and it's climbing.

I'm actually getting comments from people I don't know, and some of them are entertaining. smile

Why this one hit the recommendations while the others haven't is a mystery:

It popped up on my list last night. I watched it, but I'd seen it before. I'm not too sure about the whole algorithm thing, some pretty weird stuff pops up on my list from time to time.

I really enjoy you videos about the Neuport. By the way, how is the re-build going?

So are you rolling in the dough already Dart from all of those hits to your YT channel? smile

After I checked out Dart's You Tube channel, the algorithm is now showing me all kinds of light weight and experimental aircraft videos. I have now gone down yet another You Tube rabbit hole. I can't stop watching these things.

I'm not going down Dart's rabbit hole. There's no telling where that rabbit has been.

That's one thing for the "highlighted" video.
More interesting would be how many more hits did your other videos get since then as well - as in, how many people stayed to check out some more videos, or maybee even subscribe to your channel.

Look for me on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or Tic Toc...or anywhere you may frequent, besides SimHq, on the Global Scam Net. Aka, the internet.
I am not there, never have been or ever will be, but the fruitless search may be more gratifying then the "content" you might otherwise be exposed to.
