    Hey guys,

    I have been wondering if I should add some fake subscribers to my yt channel just to boost it abit, I have been buying high retention views and getting real subs from the video's along with real comments and some viral exposure But I was wondering would I get higher in the list of I had more subscribers even if they where fake, would I still rank better.

    Thanks.

    I don't have an experience in youtube, but in my opinion web 2.0 nowadays is about two things. First is number (bigger is better) and the second is trust. So, millions of subscribers seems trusted (even half of that is fake).

    It won't change much. Also, Youtube video don't rank high on YT now just because they have a lot of view. G also measure how much of the video has actually been watched.

    Yea my seller of views has a great high retention and he can even place it in the age group. I get about 10k and some of my videos can even reach 30k from real viewers with comments. It just boosts my video's to the top and with the help of the public I get more views.

    But that was why I was thinking of some subscribers, I have a few now well over 500 subs real ones. But would adding fake subs do much and how would youtube see it.

    I think getting fake subscribers won't be any good. There won't be real interaction. However, you could get to fool people that you are worthy to be followed because of your massive (fake) subscribers. And then, people will subscribe you back.

    I think it might helped. When I saw a very good video related to my hobbies. Then I saw the channel's subscribers, amount of videos and views are not enough, so I left it. And when I saw another channel with a lot of subs, video and views, even with no-interesting video, I just subscribed it, dunno why. Thats also what I'm doing on twitter.

    People are many in the world, some could do the same :p

    Fake subs are alright but you need the interaction to make it look legit...

    I get about 20-50 comments on my video's each upload and alot of people talking on my board. So would you think the fake subs would help?
