    Is Virool.com Legitimate? They say they can get your video to go viral with real views and they have some funding from some big corporations but i have my doubts....


    Anybody use them and see any success?

    They are absolutely worthless. I tried a campaign with them and I got tons of clicks but only 30-40% of the views went through the YouTube algorithm, and the link in my description got 13 whooping clicks. Botted views is botted, whatever they advertise it as.

    agreed. Way overpriced and uselless. They do run some large campaigns that I know of.

    I'm just mad that they're allowed to advertise through google and others cant.

    I tried Virool once and determined it to be fake views. Also, the views on YouTube show them as coming from virool.com. That is very lame and now people can see I purchased those views.
    Their "impression to view ratio" was 27.96% which is just rediculous and says cheating/spamming to me. There is no way that large a percentage of people who saw my thumbnail decided to watch the video. A realistic percentage is around 1-2%. The views also had no demographics data and they were not monetizable.
