  • One of the keys to getting more YouTube views is to attract subscribers to your channel. People generally will not subscribe if you do not post content regularly. Try to post at least one video each week, so you can give people a reason to come back to your channel.

  • “Annoying Orange Saw”- that was annoying….lol he’s honestly funny….but I guess it’s not good for young children.

  • Only a few months ago, I used to click on a video and think, “I hope there’s no advertisement”. Now, I think, “I hope it’s one of those ads that says You can skip this ad in 5…4…3…2…1…” — I always laugh over with that annoying orange.
