    It's not something I'm involved or that I've particularly been paying attention to but I was just wondering what happened to it?

    A year ago, there were a million different people on here selling a gazillion views for 2p, loads of threads of people making videos selling a product then pumping them up with fake views and banking, people making journeys reselling views etc.

    Now, there doesn't seem to be much interest in it at all.

    What happened?

    YouTube clamped down and the sellers haven't worked out new ways to generate the views but as soon as they do, they'll be back? YouTube isn't as effective for marketing anymore so there's no market for fake views? It's still booming and I'm just blind?

    YouTube started deleting almost all videos even remotely close to advertising.

    I think they putted a good stop to fake views, it's still live and working somewhat but nowhere as good as it used to.

    As a co-owner of a company that used to sell YouTube views, comments, likes, subs, and more between late May 2013 and till the end of October, let me tell you this: During the later point of our business, Google/YouTube was cracking down on the scripts or automated processes that people from other countries would use to place the views, comments, likes, subs, etc. on the people's videos. Changing up their algorithms/preventing the scripts from working really put a damper on our business because our suppliers took weeks to modify their methods and in that frame of time there were many refunds and points where we thought things were back to normal, only to find a few days later that we were having the same problems.

    I think at this point in time, you can get away with putting 1000 high-targeted views on your video and some likes and comments and subs as well, until Google/YouTube finds out about it and changes their algorithm just enough to stop the businesses, but anything looking unnatural like we were pulling last year (tens of thousands of views at a time), is going to get patched up pretty quickly.

    It's in a deep coma for the little guys, for all the big channels its still great. The only reason the big channels are safe is because people would just send fake views to the big channels and take them down.

    On the flip side


    Views have a 80%+ chance of getting videos removed, so you can use that however you would like to use it.
