    If you can send the mobile views from usa targeted then it will help you to get some good rank .

    Google knows about mobile views, they just can't add too many security features and mobiles do not have high speed or reliable internet.

    How do mobile view increase ranking? I thought they hurt your ranking because it's not watched all the way?

    They don't hurt ranking... that's a myth.

    The second I uploaded it, I immediately put 100,000 mobile views on a cool, violent video from a very popular video game, this was nearly a year ago and it has not received any natural views at all. It is still at 100,002 views. I don't understand.

    Well it doesn't look like mobile views increase ranking. So what do they do exactly? or is it because the retention rate is so low on mobile views?

    There's a combination of a lot of things if you want to rank your YouTube video. It doesn't matter if it's coming from mobile really (as long as they aren't spammed out from China/Russia) but the views also need high retention.

    Mobile views can definitely help with ranking.

    Thing is though, they have to be high retention. I've seen videos shoot up from page 5+ to page 1 in a matter of days after receiving quality mobile retention views.

    I've also personally done experiments with these and have found videos to jump to #1 on both Google as well as YouTube for their main (and not easy) keywords.

    So in short, your video won't get banned and you stand a pretty good chance (although nothing in the world of IM is guaranteed that your video will rank better.
