    I think it would hurt your ranking, obviously the fake wont stay forever. You will see a drop. I think so.

    Fake traffic won't hurt your ranking if it's not detected by Youtube. But your competitors might report you if they see unusual activity on your videos.

    So Isn't it better to just avoid it? Why do people always go for short cuts when they can build an entire army of an audience. Yes it will take time. But these fake people thing is just ridiculous for me.

    The fake ones do stick if bought from a good seller. I have many times bought views from sellers and they are still stuck after months.

    In some cases the views will stick. In some cases, they'd vanish. Not reliable. A friend of mine has a Youtube channel and he once did buy the views and a week after youtube issues him a mail about the illegal use. His all views were cancelled.

    Let me cut through th BS for you. If you use SAFE views from a GOOD provider it will NOT harm you. ALL THE BIG CHANNELS DO IT. if you have a GOOD channel, you will be fine.

    OP, you know the answer: that the key is how to stay undetected. if it's undetected then the fake become "real" traffic. hence, fake traffic will always hurt you but "real" fake traffic won't hurt you.

    google is not the good guy anymore, so much for don't be evil b.s. they even "allow" fake traffic, serve ads on it, they do not count it but still monetize it, according to a study by 7 different research labs. searchenginewatch.com/sew/news/2427313/fake-youtube-views-still-monetized-by-google

    from the study, we know youtube really good at detecting fake views. it is lots more than just spoofing the referrer LOL, those days were long gone. but it's not like the algo become super-human-like-AI either, they just lowered the trigger, such as.. much shorter life span of an IP before its traffic deemed as fake, etc.

    now what everyone and their dogs problem is how to make the fake to "real" which is your real question should be. it's very complicated especially for the ones who still think there is instant magic, the wrong mindset like to think that what competitors do is only buying views, that they succeed only by fake views, that some people hiding "secrets". (i'm not talking about you, OP. it's just what i see lots here.)

    unless you have access to unlimited IP pool either by your providers or whatever, which i doubt it, then you must read your analytic so you know how and when to dilute, you will also know your safe limit, how to and when to raise it, the stupid algo is prone to viral effect and really endorsing snowball effect, which is that's what youtube is all about atm. Now.. how many organic you ALREADY have, it's your starting point.

    if your organic is less to none, try socmed traffic to dilute. the REAL one, mind you. for example, not some tco shorturl you blast with the fake traffic ^_^. remember, know your safe limit. it's snowballing game, start small if that's what you can afford atm, it will get bigger. which then lead to the next important question, are you ready to take advantage which is more complicated subject; or you will just end up running in circle chasing imaginary shadows.

    and oh, we haven't even talked about the providers traffic. try to breakdown what they are and see what you can do about it from your part. too much work? blame google.

    I've done this with with alot of the free traffic providers using on youtube and adsense. If done correctly it will only boost your ranking and increase your income. Especially on youtube, since it has its on video boost algorithm which is easy to exploit and way simplar then what I heard othrs try to explain. Short term I have increased my youtube income by over 300% and gaining real subscribers everyday. When boosting with fake it will help get real traffic as well but again use wisely.

    'can' definitely yes
    but it depends wouldn't recommend it in 2017 - I think it's a way better idea to get a bot/pay for services that gets you real traffic
