    In my lifetime I have bought over 500k views on a channel and I have never gotten even so much as a warning. It seems generally safe to me? I ask since I am launching a few new channels and I'm trying to grow them all with bought views. Is there realistically a way for YouTube to know what is real and what is bought?

    Isn't there a chance that competitors would artificially inflate videos just to put their competitors at risk?

    I've been doing YouTube stuff for a few years now, and if you asked me this last year I'd tell you that there was very little chance of getting banned unless you were doing some hardcore stuff, but then I had two channels suspended in March and my view changed. I'm not entirely sure as to why the channels were suspended, because I do a lot of experimentation, so it's hard to pinpoint what the final straw was for each of them.

    Yeah you are correct, currently even the normal looking channel can also get banned without any prior notice by youtube but I have seen then happening with the channel that are using content from other videos(Just a part from other videos).

    Buying views wont be a cause of ban since youtube knows how things works and if just by buying crappy views could get any channel banned. We would be the first flushing out all our smaller competitions.

    I have a feeling I may be in the clear then. While I am buying views to help foster the overall traffic of the channel, all of the content is 100% original (as in recorded by me, similar content does exist. but it is clear that my content is recorded by me)

    Real views are the way to go. Youtube will find out about views and block/ban it. Or remove the views too.

    Yes, I had a channel banned before. For a very, very short period of time, I was generating a few thousand dollars per month using this weird method. To this very day, I mourn the channel's loss and imagine that one day it'll be unsuspended permanently.

    If you don't mind me asking, what kind of content were you uploading? Was it all original, or did you reupload videos from other channels?
