    Depends on competition and type of video. most times 70% + retention is good. Use 3rd party apps/software to gauge keyword competition. A safe bet is 5000 views if you expect the video to get 50000+ views. Plus Likes and Reshares. Comments dont rank but help video look real

    please define "fake views" since most of the views you can get on the market now. are the same (to youtube) as real people views, so you actually you need to ask how many initial views needed to rank a video so it will go viral (in some level) by itself and get "free" organic views with no external promotion.

    Well then I revise my question. How many views, period, does a video need to 'naturally' go viral? I've seen that 1,000,000 costs $1000. This seems like a fair price to make a video trend and go viral. But is 1M views enough (assuming the video in question is actually good)?

    edit: I should also clarify again that I don't intend to make money off this video. I just want it to be seen by at minimum 500,000 real people.

    ok, first 1M views cost much less than that (PM me for details) but the most important is that you don't need to send 1M views, that will do some impact while it trend for sure, but it won't guarantee any result post promotion.
    experts here can tell you that even 4000-5000 views (real user based, with good retention) will do the job of ranking on some long tail search term that will assure unlimited* organic traffic, but that will not come close to 500K...
    you will need to rank many videos to achieve that final goal

    fake views can work but it ha views needed.

    all they do is make the account look busy to get real users

    it don't always work

    learning the proper way to build a real YouTube account is much better then still fake likes and views
