    Has anyone done a study on the usefulness of extending the length of Vagex views? I read somewhere that even when the maximum length (5 minutes) is selected, Vagex views still end up counting as the same 30 seconds in the YT viewer retention charts.

    Saying that is the case, what are some other options for fully counted full views or extended views?

    Try downloading "Share Youtube Videos" (SYV)

    It's actually working and has a growing users base.

    I have found Vagex to be useful for ranking smaller niches. I am, however, wondering about the view lengths. I will have to do a focused study that looks at several methods and a couple controls. Anyone have any suggestions of what they have learned or what they would like me to cover?

    I only use Vagex for giving my videos an INICIAL BOOST.

    I use 500 credits per video and select the 60 seconds option + likes. I ended up with 200+ views and 20+ likes average.

    That's more than enought to give your videos some social proof.

    That's for me the only use of Vagex. Don't expect to get 1,000's of views to a single video, no matter if you put 10,000 credits to the same video, it's not going to happen

    I will give that a try. I agree with you about the view number. I have been running a series of tests with Vagex. I put in 5000 credits with all options on one video. I ended up with 450 views, 20+ comments, and 45 likes. It didn't do much for the small niche I was in. I will check in a few days, but right now the first test was a bit disappointing.

    Time= 60 seconds per video on a 58 second video. I ended up averaging about 48 seconds complete. Not exactly the full minute. I will try a longer video later.

    I've been using vgx, It works fine for me. They were buggy with the recent yt update, but seems to have fixed the problem. The best way to tell is to do a before and after test. Grab your video info before using vgx ( AR length and percentage, views..etc..) and then compare it to after. Remember, it does take a few days for yt to full update your stats ( views, AR, and everything else). I'd say the best way to do it is to control the test as much as you could. Use about 10k credits with the desired view length and no other program. Note: 10k credits does NOT mean 10k views. As far as view length is concerned, I always like to add an extra 30 secs to my video length because of yt ads, page load times, etc..
