    For all the pros here, anyone have any idea why kind of money we are talking about to hire a company to get a video on the front page of youtube? From looking at all the youtube services out there, I don't think any one of them can do this (deliver probably a few hundred thousand views within a day to land on the front page) Any thoughts?

    would this be using a single service? If there is one out there that works, I would consider it at that price range

    That price range is now where near what it would cost to hire someone or a company to get your video on the homepage. With the method I use to get views I would have to spend about $5,000 to get my video to even have enough views to make it on the homepage. Also when you upload you have 48 hours for it to make it on most viewed categories. If I had the money I believe I could make a video on the front page of YouTube but it would be very expensive.

    It can cost anything from 100$ to 10000000000000000000000000000$

    It all depends upon the keyword which u want to rank for.

    if its low competetion keyword , some Good quality Posts with that keyword would take you to NO1.

    and if its a High competetion , it can take ages! -- as No1 Page changes very Often , you will have to keep up with the competition.

    YouTube is easy, you can just blast the sh!t out of it with everything and expect a serp boost ;) . Whoever has the biggest arsenal of SEO tools/Servers wins.

    possible, but you're talking atleast 3000$+. I could do it if you have the $ and give me some time to get prepared. The campaign & video upload would have to be nearly simultaneous.

    I think hes talking about the 'most watched list', where you have to go viral in less than 3 days, it'll cost you at least a few thousand $'s to get that many views in that short a time. but it depends on if you want a top rank in "ALL categories", or if you're just looking for a top spot in some low competition category like education....

    exactley, it really depends on what keyword you want to rank for. Its not that hard if
    you test out some different links building strategies and social media factors. I got onto
    the first page of a keyword using a couple different methods against videos that have
    like 50,000 to 900k in views. and I only had 1000.lol

    Go to a local Best Buy or Electronics Store, Install Viewet on Every Computer, Purchase 1000 Credits per Viewet Account, 100 Accounts = 100k Views, Rinse Repeat / Scale = Viral , First Page, Less than 1000$.

    Profit?

    It may seem like a lot of money but it's worth every sole penny because you will get millions of impressions when your on the homepage and some people will watch your video and you will get even more videos.

    basically, when you click browse on the homepage, it will show the most watched videos of the day. I would want to get it to the top 8

    I got on the first page for a mere $15 for a keyword that gets 600,000 monthly searches in google

    . Views is just 1 factor in ranking up in youtube or google

    In Youtube, my video ranked #1 with 5k views, meanwhile everyone has 500k-800k views

    thanks, I wasn't looking at any particular keyword. I just wanted to be able to blast a video to the most viewed of the day. This would require probably a few hundred thousand views within a day to achieve (i don't think any of the youtube view services out there can provide that many views that quickly

    I could provide you up to 700,000 views with in 24 hours. But this would cost thousands of dollars for me to do it.
