    if i'll buy traffic from lets say tarfficholders and direct it to a legit page with a YouTube video embbeded on it on autoplay, will it increase the views?

    Is there some kind of special traffic I should buy for increasing youtube views?

    If you embed a video on autoplay....no matter where it is..
    the views will not count... even if the visitors are legit.

    YouTube does not count views if you put it on autoplay. But its easily overcome, as you just place the normal video link in an iframe (youtube . com/watch?v=) which is autoplay basically. Make the iframe 1x1, and put it wherever on the site.

    Your views will increase doing this, but you need good quality traffic to see any decent results.

    i'm not sure about iframe but you can add a refresh html code (<meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" content="0; url=youryoutubevideourl">) to your website that directs it to your youtube page..the paid traffic goes to your website..your website redirects them to your youtube page. I have tried this and it does work, but you will need alot of traffic to get good numbers (i only tried it with about 100 ptc visitors..but i'll continue to test it to see if it holds true with larger numbers..i got like 15 - 25% of the views. The good thing about it is that it shows your website as the referral as opposed to the ptc site...but i doubt getting a million views from your website would be believable to YT (if your trying for partner) On a side note if anyone knows how to mask the referral stats (mobile) i would love to know

    traffic will only lead to video impression. What you could do is have your video on 'autoplay' and hope the traffic stays on the video page for a certain duration for youtube to give it a view.
