    So let's say I bought 1,000,000 fake views with HIGH RETENTION + a believable amount of likes/dislikes. Would this guarantee a high spot on the list of search results (for "short film" let's say)? How does it actually work?

    I don't intend to make any money off this film but I do want it to be seen by hundreds of thousands of REAL people. Would 1M fake views be enough to get it in front of those people in the first place?

    I mean just get few thousand that are fake and share it at good places and you'll get a ton of real views.

    I don't actually have first hand experience with getting the videos to rank so I'm also interested in experienced responses. However, I've purchased views in smaller amounts (thousands) purely for making the audience of the channel perceive the videos as having some viewership, so it's not heaps to get momentum anywhere.
    That said, any research I did led to indicating there are many factors beyond just views which influence ranking. It seemed that what YouTube seemed to care about (just my interpretation, so don't take as fact) was ultimately what led to them having traffic and interaction. So things like comments were real big, shares, subscriptions gained from the video, how long they stayed on YouTube for after watching your video (something bots won't count towards I imagine), external links. I happened to save one image from somewhere for a visual idea if that's any help.
    So I guess, maybe just complement all the views with some of those extra things and that will go a long way to helping :) Good luck

    That's probably a good point too. Probably more is needed than a few thousand for momentum and for perception from audience that it's any good, but a million is a heap and probably costly. A supplier told me the first 7 days is the big period for ranking initially, so you could always start off with a smaller amount and keep topping up over the days if necessary, or evaluate where to spend your money instead.

    It depends on the keywords if it is searchable then yes else you need to promote it on other social media aswell not only youtube so you can been seen by many. Even if you buy 1M fake views but no one searches it still you can't get natural views.

    Here's something you can do
    Try to comment on movie trailers and comment like " Hey i just saw this movie "Your movie title" and it will blow your mind" something like that so it will get a hype about your movie ;)

    Buying views is useless without good YouTube video SEO.

    If you want a lot of people to see your short film, why not advertise it? You are gonna waste ton of money by buying fake views/likes/dislikes/subscribers anyway. Just advertise the video on facebook, you can get pretty cheap rates there + a lot of feedback on the video from real people. It could even go viral if people really like it and start sharing it. If you want money too, then post half on facebook and then add a link to the rest of the video which would be on youtube. If people like it, they will end up on youtube. Just my 2 cents.

    Everything depends on the Keywords, on the competition,
    the views can just boost you for the exact Topic,
    the amount doesn't plays a key role in going viral!
    everything is based on the SEO, if you done everything
    correct you won't need to buy views.

    Ranking in youtube is completely different than google, ranking in google is all about backlinks when ranking in youtube is all about views ( retention+watch time+engagement)

    You need to check if he still generate's natural traffic if so,
    you can try to overank his content, if there is a natural traffic its harder,
    but if there is non , you might be able to hit a keyword with those views! and over rank,
    don't count on what i said 100% it might not work ,

    its depends on what you are uploading,
    if its a niche related referral video , promoting producs etc..., just boost it with views, it might work fine,
    if its your "original content" you might be looking more into SEO, who's your competitors, what keywords they use,,,
