    Hey folks,

    lets start a debate.

    Mobile views = Good or bad?

    Good for getting the numbers?
    Or bad knowing that you didnt earn it legit?

    Is there a way to get automated comments and such so it looks legit? :dunce:

    I don't see why the debate is limited to Mobile Views, and not just any type of purchased view. If you have any moral issues, than whether its a Mobile View, or some guy pressing F5 and rotating proxies, you know it isn't legitimate views. YouTube isn't really something where most people are going to have moral issues. Boosting videos up using non-legitimate views isn't like to cost a legitimate small timer too much money. Anyone risking a good chunk of money on YouTube is really living dangerously. Its "ok" for numbers, but if you have publicly viewable analytics, its terrible for your reputation.

    I mean any kind of view botting. Personally i see nothing wrong with getting 'assistance' in getting your content viral. However! People who abuse it ruin it for others.

    I Wish there was a way that it doesnt say mobile views, so that you can have statistics Public so people wont cry about "botting"

    I agree with you, except for the analytics, if you fake comments and likes very few people could see the botting going on...average YT user doesn't know sh1t about mobile views trick.

    There is. You have to send specific requests to YouTube but very few people know how to do it because it is very technical. It only says mobile views, because you are viewing it from the mobile views file (streaming the rtsp file). If you don't want it to say mobile views, stop telling YouTube its a mobile view lol. :p

    These past few weeks most people have been commenting, and voting the comment up, which says "Fake views! Botted views!" so even if people normally wouldn't know it, they are getting called out quite frequently. If you are trying to run a legitimate business/channel/campaign, you certainly wouldn't want to risk for reputation over something that can be called out so easily.

    I understand where are you coming from, but I disagree partially. It's not that critically damaging for your rep to be a known cheater nor it is a YouTube career-ending menace.

    Otherwise at this point in time Smosh or sxephil wouldn't be making ten of thousands of $$$ per month. :)

    Basically, you are asking if boosting is ethical.

    I say that it ISNT ethical with the stuff that people do on youtube. Whiteboy7thst boosted and look at him now, he has over 1 million susbcribers and gets $$$.

    There is definatly a competitive thing to do, like marketting, you need to see yourself as good and already gain traffic in order to get MORE people to come.

    I agree there is a limit to how much help you have, but at this time if everyone is doing the same thing, it isn't worth doing.

    Different strokes for different folks I guess. I guess if you can get people to not care that you are a cheater, and not get banned by youtube, it may work for some people. I wouldn't be able to do it though. If people called me out and I knew I was guilty, I wouldn't show my face their again. It might also piss people off and they report you, and whoever checks your account, could ban you right quick. I just dont see it as worth it for someone who actually believes in their content. Would rather pay for views/favorites/comments/likes from REAL people personally to avoid any risk.
