it been patched. the only way would be virgin ip traffic and will cost a fortune so no one will try . each virgin ip usally $1 to $3 each , you need so many cost a bomb , that why monitize accounts are so exspensive . there is many other ways , i can think of that will work , but more of a natrual way . you can use comment blasting to the video in quistion to build stats up. you can use socail bots like ig,twitter ect to build the stats up on the video forwarding traffic. still cost , get cheap traffic in your niche send it to video to get stats . setup a facebook page and make the user goto your video. many other ways aswell, need to think out the box.
