    After doing some research into this topic it seems like YouTube is quick to blame the channel owner for fake views. I suspect someone is targeting me and trying to give me fake views in order to eventually get my channel banned or video removed. I read on many threads on the Google and YouTube forums that once YouTube removes a video, they don't investigate into it or honor an appeal.

    I would like to act fast and save my video some how. I wonder if there's a way to notify YouTube that my video is under fake views attack or am I just doomed and if there's a way to actually do something on my side to stop it.. They probably use a BOT or embed the video on a website and give me 1000's of fake views..

    I feel helpless!! it seems like YouTube doesn't have all the necessary solutions to handle each and every threat..

    please help!

    I don't understand how Google didn't predict that after their changes of penalizing fake views for videos and spammy links for websites that people would start to use it to their advantage by negative SEO and views. Do the geniuses at Google have life experience or do they live in some sort of child-like bubble where no one is out to hurt each other?

    Or maybe they do know what they're doing.

    No one can judge if fake views were done by owner or competitor

    I have no idea what your argument is.
