How Holly Starks Ranked 3.4 Million YouTube Videos

For episode 42, I sat down with Holly Starks to talk about how to make money as an SEO spammer.

Specifically, how to use automation and low quality links to rank endless amounts of YouTube videos – fast.

A normal affiliate site will take you 6-12 months to rank. One of these YouTube videos? 5-30 days.

Holly’s going to breakdown how you can do the same.

    Ah Daryl massive thanks for doing this interview – I came across Holly through BHC and have watched every video shes ever recorded to try and learn as much as I can about this… so Im really happy that you’ve done this! I’m a wannabe BH so definitely going to give this a go… but it’s only a matter of time before google plugs these holes (would love your opinion on that).

      Yes Jamie we are playing a game with google. They will at some point fill the wholes, but that’s what my business is based on. Finding the wholes and taking advantage of it while I can. It’s churn and burn more or less, But video churn and burn can last a few years if you do it right. If your not willing to lose it, don’t build it. Because it will happen at some point.

        What did you use to make that video super big on the search for Asbestos Lawyer Anchorage AK.

    • Daryl Rosser  April 13, 2017 at 3:35 pm

      Glad you liked it Jamie.

      Like Holly said, it’s really dependent on what sort of business you want to do. It’s not really something I’m into these days, though wouldn’t mind playing around with it as a short term side project.

    interesting interview. Its interesting seeing all these different techniques being discussed, but I am wondering if all that time and effort was spend building something super legit it would be way more profitable in the end. I was left wondering what income/profit range per month you are rockin’

    Every statement is followed up with “its working for now” or “they haven’t caught us yet” etc. it seems like the entire business is a house of cards that could implode at any moment, with the only solution finding some new rat technique to quickly exploit before it gets exploited/banned. The recurring theme of this interview is “i build an income and then lose it all and have to start over”. I can’t imagine living under constant anxiety of losing my income every day.

    I can’t imagine having a bunch of amazon accounts, getting filled up for a couple months and then having them all get shut down before the 60 day payout window. seems like 2 steps forward, one step back.

    The amount of constant effort going into something so unstable vs say building a legit authority site for amazon affiliates or various other aff programs and building an asset you can get a steady monthly income from and eventually sell for 24-30x monthly income seems crazy. Not only that but not being able to track/manage/monitor everything seems like its a crazy short time gamble, especially as google/youtube is constantly working to get rid of spam, the noose is only going to tighten.

    I’m glad this is working for you, its still better than working in a cubicle all day I would imagine. This might come off has hating, but I don’t mean to. Its more just interesting to me going into the mindset differences of short term vs long term business/asset/wealth building. Thanks for the interview 🙂

    Hey Jason.

    I don’t really talk profits or monthly income. The only thing I will say is in the christmas months, I can clear almost 6 figures, depends on how aggressive I was with uploading.

    I don’t enjoy white hat or building things slowly. That’s why I like to do this. I like to see what I can get away with. i kinda get bored with websites. I’m not good at building them in general and because I’m a spammer, I kill the sites so quickly.

    Ideally, you can create both, that is the way to go. Don’t get me wrong, it gets to be nerve racking if you continue to lose properties, but from 2013 to November 2016 I didn’t lose anything regarding videos or amazon accounts. So that was stable for 3 years. With all the updates google has, you play the game in a different way. You can wake up one day and lose that too.

    You have to have a strong stomach and nerves of steal sometimes. I woke up and lost 22k .xyz sites due to deindexing and 3.5 million videos. I almost walked away, but I enjoy it so much so I stuck it out.

    Thanks for providing about how to rank in youtube and providing the same tools which you work to rank it. learned a lot. Thanks man 🙂

    Hey Holly! How many calls are you usually seeing a month with a thousand videos put up?

    • Holly Starks  April 27, 2017 at 9:23 pm

      It really depends on the time of year and what I’m targeting. At one time I was doing 250 lead gen niches. I can easily get a thousand calls a day and it can be a day that i get 100 calls. It just depends on what is going on. I watch a lot of CNN and when I see a diaster that i can capitalize on like Hurricanes, then I would put up a roofing network very quickly. So it’s just how much work I want to put in a short amount of time.

  • Vimal Tank  April 14, 2017 at 4:26 pm

    bookmarked it and will read it in some time. . . i m looking at ranking for a client, even that means spam i dont care. . . hope this one helps. . .

    • Daryl Rosser  April 21, 2017 at 9:46 am

      I’m sure it will if you plan on ranking YouTube videos. Enjoy.

  • Alan  April 15, 2017 at 2:53 am

    Holly I feel like you are pushing the limits to the extreme. I really love the way you organized to do all this …..from starting from nothing. I really would like to know what you use to make that Asbestos Lawyer search video really big. Is it a program??? or some setting???

    • Holly Starks  April 27, 2017 at 9:25 pm

      Hey Alan. We are currently testing videos to see if we have the formula. Two years ago we could do it on demand, but since there, they have tinkered with the serps. I’m not ready to say what it is yet …..

      • Alan  May 6, 2017 at 2:00 am

        Thanks Holly …. I am waiting for the results…. You Rock.

  • Mate  April 21, 2017 at 2:57 pm

    Hey Holly and Daryl,

    It was great to listen the interview! Thanks for that!

    Holly, where you can get a lot of phone numbers for the YouTube registrations?

    Or you don’t use separate phone numbers?

    Thanks for your answer!

  • Holly Starks  April 27, 2017 at 9:26 pm

    Hey. I get my Youtube accounts from here.

    You MUST get the double PVA accounts and log in within 2 days to keep them live.

  • Derek  May 28, 2017 at 5:49 pm

    Thanks to both of you for all of this great information!!

    Holly, what program do you use to manage all of your Web 2.0 properties? I assume you shouldn’t be logging into 300 twitter or Tumblr accounts all on the same IP 🙂
