    Does YouTube penalize accounts that use fake subscribers and fake views? I was planning on giving it a boost just to kickstart it but I am now wondering if they will detect it and make it harder to reach real people even if the account is unbanned. If I aim for long term should I go 100% white hat?

    Thanks

    From my personal experience YouTube will detect and remove fake veiws and subs from your channel.
    Although I can't tell how far it goes and if your channel gets penalized.

    Pretty sure they will ban you if you have monetization enabled.

    Well anytime you buy subs or views you are violating YouTube's terms and conditions so there's always a risk. However you are unlikely to get penalized unless you do something really stupid and enable monetization whole views are being sent. Just be smart about it, don't buy shitty cheap views get high retention views.

    what happens if you buy views, but the video is unlisted then when you make it public you monetize it.

    Maybe it's unlisted but youtube still analyse the view you are getting even if it's private or unlisted or anything .

    Unlisted, private, public ... it doesn't really matter. As long as monetization is off while your getting bought views you should be safe.

    If you buy views and subs from BHW then yes. You get what you pay for, but some services inflate shitty quality and expect you to not complain about it ... It's better to make a higher quality account with more human behavior patterns and a private isp source, than to simply "buy" a package and hope for the best.

    if you aim for long term i would invest your budget you wanting to buy fake subscribers/likes/views and invest that into youtube ads so you grow slow but with real people. and when you have a couple of hundred/thousand subscribers, the ball keeps rolling organically. cheers!

    the strongest recomended action is adwords for video by everyone.. havent tried it yet but was planning to... your experiences shows a different story..
    if adwords is again not the key.. then what is ?? ...
    like one could find a good competitive niche depending on skillset of content production.. but how to survive in ranking and suggested videos war.. still a myth.. hope some guru can shed light

    well adwords is only good if you have enough money, a good example of someone who made it through adwords is Tai lopez and he was a millionaire before hand soo that tells you how much ud probably have to shell out lol.
    i think the key is networking, content, and KW research, and maybe some social boosts along side social proofing, and CONSISTENCY.
    As long as you posting every week with good content, only then can you start to look for other solutions. do what you can first to the T and then go looking for other methods to add on or help boost your existing views and subs.

    yeah sounds logical.. will try my best to do so and get sucess one day.. logging all my steps and mistakes in a private notebook, will share it one day after results, BHW still lags a one stop solution to youtube success or little did i know of it..
    Im just back to IM after 15 good sucessfull years of day job, i have a fair skillset of content development for videos and animations, side by side investing in .coms but will never give up my passion for youtube content, wish me luck! and i will definitely payback to community the day i can. Thanks though!

    Ok thank you for the reply, because i was thinking of buying views make the video unlisted until all views came in then make it public with monetization. I know the bought views wont count as revenue, but every view after that would.
