    Tomorrow they will change the algo to combat everyone blasting their mobile views.

    Video play time will be factored in.

    Mobile views are when you watch the video from a phone or something.

    And yea they are changing it because people are abusing the mobile views

    Guys, come on, don't be silly, do you think that YT could program and release such a huge algo change in just a week or so?

    This has nothing to do with the Mobile Views thing and it was planned to happen anyway.

    Furthermore, I'm no programmer but I'm pretty sure at the moment they have no way of calculating the play time of a mobile video since it's played by external applications and not in the browser like in the regular Youtube site.

    If they can't calculate play time of mobile views, I would think they would not even consider them when ranking the video then
