    I need a little help with this.
    I recently bought 10,000 Retention Views for $14. Now.. it gets better. I log in today, to find my video has gotten a slight boost.
    I bought in the past from them, and 90% of the time I got more views than advertised. :p
    It was only a small percentage.. maybe if 1,000 views than I'd get 1,300 or something like that.
    Only one time did I pay for 10,000 normal views and I got 1-2K. :(
    Anyways, this time instead of 10,000 I received 35,000. :D
    So 35,000 retention views for $14. What is a retention view? *for those that don't know.. It's when the viewer watches the video anywhere from 70% through.. to 100%.
    The new update on Youtube means you get paid, ranked, and basically everything else all depends on what your percentages are. How long someone watches the video for.
    I'm a YT Partner through a network. Basically, I'll be getting only a percentage of what I make.
    The question is.. do you guys think I could make profit from this?
    Like also imagine making money because thousands of more people would see the video.. or at least.. hundreds more.
    If I paid $14 for every video.. and I got these same results.. or slightly better or lower.. do you think I could make a profit?

    I won't know yet since Analytics didn't update.. and I'll get my payment only in Summer.. so...
    Yeah, thanks guys!

    It's a good idea man, but I don't know if it's worth the risk. If you get caught not only your youtube channel will be banned but also your connection to the partner network and also your adsense account :/ Just my 2 cents

    You are talking about morality? Look at the forum you're in man.

    Thanks guys for the responses. It turned out non-profitable :p
    The views got messed up.. I got millions of minutes watched.... but it was all mobile. Wasn't expecting that. ;(
    oh well.. xP
    *mobile meaning no ads. no ads, no money.

    To people in this thread. Even though its BHW, doesn't mean we all do inmoral stuff to earn money..... BHW mostly get used to rank sites and videos in a more shady way with advantage above white hatters...

    Not all in here scams advertisers ;-)

    Well, just for the record, retention does not mean that the viewer watches the video from 70-100%. Infact it's the time watched. It can also be anywhere form 10-100%.
    And about using paid views to get paid, no it's highly recommended that you switch of and ads and stuff until the views are delivered
