    I ordered 7k views, they got delivered yesterday - and now my youtube video can't be found anywhere anymore in the youtube search. (Before it got found)

    Is this normal / temporary or did i destroy it?

    What you recommend? Re-Upload?

    it depends, if you purchased low quality views that were all run off the same proxy or IP I am sure Youtube is able to tack that and punish you for it by de-indexing your video. Why not just give yourself the traffic. There are plenty of tools to do so

    IMHO 7k views or hits of any kind in such a short period would look suspicious. Stick to traffic you can control next time and trickle it in. Plenty of tools and info here for that.

    A lot goes into YT ranking. Views are becoming just a small part of it. Id suggest getting your vids worked into some social exchanges most importantly.

    Very risky. YT will often delete videos with a lot of fake views.
