    As many of you know, youtube bumped up their view detection system just a tad to accurately pinpoint whether you have made revenue or not.

    This, for the most part has been much of a decrease, sellers who promise "real views" have been caught out lying.



    I've bought from a seller and his views came out as "Youtube advertising views" as a traffic source. Which probably means I cant earn off those views but neither i nor the seller knew why that was the case.

    What has happened to everyone else? I wish to gather research around this matter. Also, if anyone could point me to a seller who provides monetizable views, that would be helpful.

    Most sellers I go through suck, and no it doesn't count toward my Adsense half the time. One seller who had very high retention rates now has the shittiest I have ever seen. I'm pretty much fucked hard on trying to find anyone decent these days, and no one apparently gives a fuck that YouTube counts view retention as king for ranking these days.

    Same, if you care to give me results from your experience with some sellers, i'd like it so i could avoid them in the future.

    View retention and sellers don't mix. It's all 3 second - 30 second stuff.

    Still waiting on a response from people if they have had similar experience, kind of important.
