There is a plague on youtube.  A plague in which people are falling victim to the stupidity known as “sub4sub”.

In theory the idea is that people subscribe to others in exchange for those other also subscribing to them.

In practice however it’s bullshit.  It’s nothing more than a numbers game.  They are not meaningful subscriptions at all because they aren’t subscribing because they want to watch your videos, only because they want you to subscribe to them and build their subscriber numbers.

The only real meaningful subscriptions are people who actually watch your videos.  The only numbers game that means anything on youtube is how many people watch, rate, comment on, and share your videos.  sub4sub is a bullshit scam from the start.

If you have even one functioning brain cell you will avoid sub4sub like the plague of stupidity and spam that it is.
