    So, I bought 10k views from BB, received 20k, so at that point I had about 25k views, this morning I woke up and had 35k views, I thought "Wow! BB is really over delivering!" Well, that wasn't the case, they were all views from netherlands with 0% retention. Do you think a competitor really spend time and money to make me move down one spot?

    It could be.

    Just enter one of your YT links in one of those "auto traffic shitty sites" and you are getting visitors like crazy, though 0% retention :)

    They can use any traffic exchange or PTC site then the retention rate will be very low and won't cost much if they use several auto hits exchanges and run several browsers on a VPS.
    Even some of the YT viewer bots can be used like this.
    People are screwing each other over left right and centre.

    Ah that sucks man, how badly has it affected your video, still just the 1 spot? If this changes a vids ranking by a lot then it could totally screw youtube over..
