    I tested out an SMM sellers' youtube views and they actually stuck but what really got me was that he sells for around 20 cents per 1000 views. So $1 for 5k views. I usually hear people say that if you monetize your youtube account with Adsense then you can make around $1 per 1k views. I hope you understand where this is going. If I pay the SMM dude $200 for 1 million views, would I be able to make $1000 through Adsense? I looked at watch time analytics on youtube and it looks like most of the viewers/bots stick around for 1-2 minutes then leave the video so it would be enough time for a banner ad or a small vid at the beginning. I don't know, am I missing something here? As of now I can't test it out because my account isn't monetized yet.

    Well nothing is stopping you for trying it out. Why not monetize the video with adsense now and spend say $40 on views and then get back to BHW with the results?

    No, don't do that unless you want to screw your youtube channel and adsense account

    I was actually talking to a co-worker about this the other day. He was an actor (small time)... Not really an extra... But no main roles. Now he's working for low pay at a shitty job.

    Anyways he recently told me about his YouTube channel after he saw me uploading my videos at work.

    Apparently he has been making steady videos and such for the past 4 years. He's been trying real hard... Like when I say HQ videos I mean he has like invested in legit equip... Mics... Cameras... Like he spent bank and basically wanted to start his own show on YouTube. Like professional stuff that had actresses coming on as guest and stuff. But the more we talked the more depressed I got. Yes his content sucked. I personally think he's a good actor... The quality is there. Super professional... But it just wasn't funny to me.

    He talked about how he even started buying views. He would get like a few k views but it would only get him a few k views in return....

    Long story short... Buying views is a slippery sloap...

    Also, unless my keyword research is shitty and everything I've read is a lie to get people to purchase shit... Keywords don't matter. I see videos with the most retarded keywords that have nothing to do with the video get millions and millions of views.... Is YouTube in itself saturated or am I missing something?

    When I say saturated I mean... So many videos for every damn niche being uploaded every second. Unless your videos is super unique or in a niche that is new and about to boom... You have no chance?

    I hope I'm wrong. I'm wrong about alot of things and I hope this is one of them. I don't think I'll ever buy views... But I'll stick to YouTube for another few months to see... Maybe I don't have a good grasp of what saturated really means? Not sure. But we will see.

    If you are using adsense then there is no way that thing can work. Because view providers gonna do it before you and google is smart enough to not make it happen.
    You can only think that buying view is a boost in your channel in youtube so you can get more exposure for a longterm run, not for making money for a short times.

    Nope. It is often low-quality traffic, and you can make some $ on YT, as long traffic is REAL and people will be interested with ads.
