Whats up everybody , well I was actually going to include the content of part 2 in a much latter version but due to the threads that have been popping lately on BHW I see no choice than to try to explain some basics around the content discussed in part 2.Hopefully, I would be able to get the attention of some intelligence being out there that know their shit on the Youtube game in the field of top rated comments , so I can try to network and associate with them since right now as standing BHW has gone very downhill for the knowledge of top rated comments(aka top rated comments).And this knowledge remains hidden from the masses as well as some potential players that could really impact the game if they knew better, but after all is for a reason. Now I know most of the Youtube BHW section is filled with tons of threads of the following: buying views, where to buy views, help Youtube banned my accounts,questions about bots, and more questions .It seems that you hardly see any tuts, guides or any actually threads that help in offering any guidance as what to do or where to start, and don't even get me started on those people starting their threads in the money making section of this forum that actually belong to Youtube section .Enough ranting! Alright so as you all know, top rated comments is pretty much the most profitable thing you can do in Youtube there is no doubt about that. Needless to say, is also the most difficult to do and maintain and the ones that has the less information going around as well as false facts related to how you should go about doing it. WARNING:Before you start reading this whole wall of text, if you want to get into top rated comments then am going to tell you straight up that your success will come roughly from 10% a bot, and 90% testing the server algorithm. What I mean is that unless you have patience, lots of proxies(you need new ones every time as they become flagged/blacklisted),lots of accounts and not the least TIME to do TESTING, then you will always get stuck in the middle or not be able to understand the algorithm Youtube has in place for top rated comments. So if you don't have any plans of putting time, resources, and do all the testing then I suggest you quit as this is pretty much the Big Boys playground. Before I go over a couple of methods, am going to dedicate the thread to debunking myths and establishing reality checks that i have gathered through research,hard work, and a little bit of luck and not the least from conversating with people that are very well into top rated comments, and eat that shit and sleep on it 24/7(well at least they are better than most here) Note:I decided to make Part 3 the methods section of top rated comments since this Part already got too big, wait for the next Part that should be coming soon! Part 2 top rated comments(Top Rated Comments) Myths Myth #1: There is no working bot This is probably the funniest one of all, that's why am going to address it first. The true reality is that, Youtube hasn't really changed much in the programming aspect of rating and commenting for a programmer not to be able to program it(if anything). The reason why there isn't any public bots out there is simply cause BHW is full of people that don't understand when in some posts they are told that the problem pertaining top rated comments is in fact server side, yet they still seek a working top rated comments bot thinking that's all they need and in fact just gives more headache to those willing to release a free public bot when they are told their bot doesn't work.So if you can get over the fact that you don't need a special bot to do top rated comments, and that just about any okay programmer can whIP out one with some basic programming skills(of course they must use http requests, not browser) then you are already way ahead most people here who still are waiting for that magic bot to appear.Not forgetting , the TESTING and RESOURCES(as in constant fresh supply of fresh accounts and IPs) is where the real work is at. Myth #2: Non-PVA's don't work as good as PVA's Now I personally have used PVA's only once in my whole time, reason being is simple. I don't trust any providers here to provide me with supposedly high quality PVA's, I like to keep all of my house Youtube operations under control that includes taking care of the account creation.However, I have tested literally thousands of Non-PVA's that I have created and few that I bought a couple of times and I can tell you the actual difference was huge between all the batches of different Non-PVA's , some lasted a week, majority a few days before getting sms, and ultimately I refined my account creation process to make some that lasts months and don't get banned within 2-7 days without touching them. So the whole myth of PVA's of being better than Non-PVA's is simply not true , however for Non-PVA's to be good they need to be created by some good tricks out there that people don't put into any public account creator and good IPs. So in reality, a shitties Non-PVA's will actually get sms within 2-3 days or sometimes within 24 hours and/or will get banned without touching them(no logging into them), while PVA's can't get sms they are not immune to banning and can get banned pretty easily(just like Non-PVA's) and mass banned if you link multiple accounts to one number when verifying. So in conclusion , Non-PVA's aren't better or worst than PVA's(it all depends how they are created). IF you don't believe me I would love to hear your criticism and some actual tests to prove it( I have my worthy Non-PVA's to debunk this myth if you want to bring it on against your PVA's ). Needless to say, the IPs used to create the accounts as well as the EMAILS, plus the methods used to bypass sms(if they're Non-PVA's) and tricks goes a long way in giving your accounts a healthy long lasting life. Myth #3: You can rate any comment to the top It cease to amaze me how many people believe this , when they go and open a new thread asking people if you can rate any comment to the top without putting any effort in actually trying to test it yourself if its true or not. The actually facts is that you CANNOT rate any comment to the top. Comments that are too old won't go to the top, so if any comment is on page 10 and beyond it will not go to the top no matter if you give it votes. Also another thing to notice, once a comment is flagged as spam and you try to unflag it with some other accounts, well I guess I shouldn't really tell you the outcome would be, since it should be pretty obvious. Myth #4: Using more than 1 account on 1 IP will not get the comment to the top Actually, from my research and testing I can tell you this is pretty much not 100% true but definitely around 60-90% true. Thing is, some times some comments can actually get to the top if you use one IP with multiple accounts, most of the time however this stops working after a while. I believe it has to do with the activity of the video itself, how active it is,how long since uploaded etc. However, doing this on a lot of ratings will definitely result in your IP being blacklisted/flagged so If I was you to avoid any headaches I would try to stick to 1 IP per account so you can figure out how to get past the Youtube server algorithm when you notice your comments not going to the top. I for one haven't been able to determine what exactly make this 1 IP multiple accounts trick work sometimes and not work most of the times. But like I said, the top rated comments game is all about TESTING in a control environment so you can isolate your variables in order to come out with facts that would debunk any myths out there. Reality Checks Reality Check #1: You need a lot of accounts.Of all kinds! The truth of the matter is that you will actually need a lot of accounts to get in the top rated comments. Why you might ask? Well first of all , Youtube actually cares a lot of the account type you are using and how it was made.I haven't tested PVA's but I have tested a lot of different types of Non-PVA's created with different methods, emails, and tricks of account creation.All the times I got different results. So in order to actually be successful in the top rated comments game you will actually need to have a nice budget allocated to be able to have accounts to do pretty much either commenting and/or rating. The best way to actually approach top rated comments is to actually try to isolate your commenting accounts away from your rating accounts. IF you try to mix your accounts and start using them for rating and commenting, you will not get far if you start to scale up. What happens is that, once an account gets used it has like some limited use before it begins to get noticed by Youtube as a bot account. Meaning, the more you use an account for rating the more likely it is to get flagged and actually cause harm to you instead of helping you. Same can be said for commenting , as you start to use your account more for commenting , you will start to notice that a unnatural number of comments are getting marked as spam very quickly. Youtube isn't stupid, they can tell when an account is being used for spamming purposes. So as soon as you start to notice your comments getting marked as spam, stop using that account for a few days to a week(I have actually found this helps recover the account back to normal if you let it collect dust for a while) and use another account, if you can use another IP too. Its also good to notice that there is literally an exact amount of bad ratings and good ratings that will cause a comment to go to the top. A bad rating is described by a rating done by a flagged/blacklisted account with or without a flagged IP as well,while a good rating is a rating done by a non-flagged/non-blacklisted account and clean ip. For example, if you need 10 likes to rate a comment to the top. Then there is actually a science behind as to whats the threshold of bad ratings a comment can have to allow it to go to the top spot. So if you are really into the top rated comments, you should test that out. I have played with that for a little bit, but haven't found the exact ratio for all videos but I will say is around 10-20% bad ratings threshold for some videos that I tested, any more ratings added to the comment than that and it will most likely result in your comment not going to the top. Reality Check #2: Get fresh proxies, lots of them, and get a constant source of new proxies This and having access to a lot of accounts is vital to succeed in this game(of course ,common sense would be to clear your cookies before each login). In order to actually be able to do proper testing and be able to get comments to the top, you need to know where your proxies come from and if they have been used to spam Youtube or are blacklisted in any spamhaus type site(Youtube can blacklist your IP without you knowing too). A lot of people recommend to use HideMyAss as a vpn for Youtube, and I can tell you that its pretty much a 50/50 chance that they will work. Keep in mind a lot of those IPs are blacklisted so you might be able to succeed if you literally throttle through their IPs to find out which ones are the bad IPs or good ones. You can find out the good IPs from the bad IPs by knowing which ones are the good IPs. So in other words, most good IPs would likely be pretty much private proxies that are expensive as less people have access to them. You can never be 100% sure which ones are good IPs but 95-99% if the IPs are private and expensive they are most likely good to use for Youtube. Now if you are going to go with a public VPM, like HideMyAss, you can still get your bang for your buck if you actually test out the threshold of bad ratings vs good ratings by using HideMyAss IPs against your good IPs(expensive private proxies) to find out which IPs from HideMyAss are actually good. One thing to keep in mind is that your IPs will get blacklisted and/or flagged in the process of using them. So one day they can be working fine and getting all of your comments to the top making you feel like a boss, then the next day you could be facing every major wall and making you feel like a loser because your IPs are flagged/blacklisted. Just remember, Youtube isn't god they can only track you by IPs, cookies, flash cookies(if you use a browser) and on some occasions by the comments you post, which will bring me to my next Reality. Reality Check #3: Youtube flags comments by phrases not by specific words This one is quite interesting, what I have found out is that Youtube uses a sort of actual algorithm that analyzes your comment based on actual phrases and not words alone. So for example a lot of people are saying that the word "free" will get your comment flagged but this will only hold true if you were to use phrases that Youtube actually considered spam when the word "free" is in the comment, I have been able to successfully post a comment with the word "free" with out using any other words that will trigger Youtube anti-spam mechanism when the word "free" is around.Having said that, it is possible in my opinion to actually use symbols as sort of a buffer inside the comment to make it harder for Youtube to read your comment in order to analyze it if its spam or not. For Example: Lets go back to that wonderful mother's day that just happened recently, if we were to advertise our website or link in a comment and make it sleek so we can avoid Youtube anti-spam algorithm, then the best way would be to actually build up comments that pretty much are spinned(if you can spinned them by sentences instead of by words), say the same message but have different symbols in them between words. "Hey guys please visit my site âŒ¦ â’½â“â“Ÿâ“Ÿâ“¨ï»¿â“‚â“žâ“£â“—â“”â“¡â“¢â’¹â“â“¨.â’¸â“žâ“œï»¿ âŒ« for mother's day gift idea" ----> You can put the whole url in unicode characters that are still readable, this for sure will get past Youtube anti-spam url posting shit they have going on. "Hey guys please visit my site â†’happymothersday.â’¸â“žâ“œâ†ï»¿ for mother's day gift idea" ----> you can mask the TLD only if you want to be able to post your link. "Hey guys please visit my site âŒ˜ haï½pï½™mï½ï½”ï½ˆï½…rsï½„ï½yâŒ¬com â–" -----> Be creative use a symbol to replace '.' , but make it still readable. "Hey guys please visit my site â–ï½ˆï½ï½ï½ï½™ï½ï½ï½”ï½ˆï½…ï½’ï½“ï½„ï½ï½™.ï½ƒï½ï½â– for mother's day gift idea" ----> Using this type of unicode for a url actually has a very cool perk, the user can actually copy and paste the url from the comment itself and will work when put in the url bar. Those are just some basic examples,and you can expand into it by spinning your comments in sentences or by simply using synonyms, the point is to make your comments so different in the eyes of Youtube that they will not get labeled as spam when you start out your little bot to spam away. Make sure you still make your comments readable though, and you can use literally the whole unicode library to place random symbols around phrases or words in order to fool Youtube into thinking your comment is unique. Remember, if you only use words your only making it easier for Youtube to analyze your comments based on the words structure of your comments so start using unicode to start breaking your comments into tiny little pieces it will make Youtube's life harder in cleaning up the spam.Also, one last thing to keep in mind is that if you start using the same unicode a lot Youtube will actually mark it as spam just like a regular comment, so that is why is so important to actually use the whole fucking unicode library to make each comment as unique as possible. Needless to say, if you are still using that "\" on the urls to post your links, then you are pretty much outdated in the whole top rated comments game as that's not really how the pros do their comments. IF you actually take your time to search on Youtube and see who is your competition, you will see the top guys use unicode because its efficient. You can actually create a fuckload of comments , spinned with symbols in between words and the link/url to make your comments look unique , while still retaining the same message.Don't think for a sec that you can spam the same comment from different accounts with different IPs and get past the Youtube spamming system, the actual reality is that if you were to post across different accounts say one of the comments I put as examples above, your comment will actually get flagged quickly . That is, all comments posted are literally counted as spam if the same comments are being posted by another Youtube user very quickly like within minutes or seconds(or just being posted numerous times), even if the IP is thousands of miles away from the original Youtube user that posted the first comment, the comment will get labeled as spam very quickly if posted very quickly or numerous times. Trust me, I' ve tried this countless of times. I thought comments were marked as spam only if it came from the same user and/or IP not just any other Youtube account. So if you want to take it a step further, let your creative side get loose and start playing with the unicode database to create unique comments with buffer symbols in between words, don't forget though that if you only start using the same symbols your competition would be able to sniff your comments out by doing a google search on the symbols you use, so use a lot of them cause this trick is a double edge sword. Reality Check #4: Flagged comments come in 2 flavors! Whenever you post a comment and gets flagged its because of usually 2 reasons. Its not that hard actually to tell why your comment was flagged, all you really have to do is monitor a comment to see when it gets flagged.As some people might know by know, a comment can be flagged by the users(or competition) or by Youtube itself. In order to identify which one of the two fuckers was the reason for getting your comment flagged, you must actually watch whether your comment gets marked as spam instantly meaning within like 1-2 mins(usually its as soon as you posted) or if its after 1 or 2 mins. This is a good technique to use, to test out the comments that are being flagged as spam before doing a massive run only to find out that all of your comments were marked as spam, remember don't scale shit cause you will only get shit. Test your comments frequently to see if they are still getting through the Youtube spam system.You can use a commonly known comments that are known to be spam such as "visit my channel" to make unique temporary FUD(fully undetected) comments that would get through the anti spam system . Oh and for the love of god, don't use bit.ly it gives it away that you are pretty much spamming. Conclusion: If you notice your comment getting flagged as soon as you post it, then its 95-99% sure its Youtube flagging your comment down, but if you post your comment and see it as non-flag and come back later on only to find out that your comment has been flagged then that should be a good sign that either users flagged your comment or you have someone on your ass trying to take your spot if the latter is true then you better hold it down cause these blackhatters,spammers how ever you want to call them ain't playing around (usually check within 15-20 mins depending on how busy the video is, some times your comment will remain unflagged for hours, days etc) Note:depending on how popular is the video and how many views is getting, it can be hard to tell if your comment was flagged by Youtube or by the users because of how fast users might be able to flag a comment down in a very popular video that has a lot viewers watching it. Reality Check #5: Make sure you are submitting all the POST data right and change your User-Agent! Back then when Youtube was pretty much anybodies game and you could make a shitty bot that didn't really submit all the proper POST data that a normal browser would do, you could pretty much have gotten away with missing POST variables that you forgot to submit when doing a rating, commenting etc(if your bot is programmed in http requests). Now a days if you are missing important post variables like 'Data-tag' and 'Data-score' on your rating function then you will most likely see your rating fail. Like for example the Data-score is the variable that keeps track of the amount of ratings a comment has, so your bot needs to be able to submit in the POST for the rating the correct 'Data-score' or your rating will most likely not work. This wasn't always the case, before those major updates you could pretty much do a rating without really submitting those variables as they were not required before, not its a whole different world and pretty much your rating has to look as much as how the browser does them. Just like when you post a comment, before you didn't need to submit those extra variables in your POST to be able to do the comment. Like, that variable "len" that is basically equal to the amount of characters your comment has that you need to submit it in your POST when making the comment, with a 500 character limit on any comment done by the normal comment system. If you use the mobile commenting system then your comment will be a lot shorter , but I've had that mobile commenting system work a lot better sometimes at getting by the spam system(one thing to look out for and test in the future). User-Agent actually do have a role in Youtube top rated comments algorithm, see Youtube is fucking picky as hell. They literally do watch out for everything to try to fight spam. I have actually done some tests where I submitted various ratings to a comment from different accounts, all of them in 1:1 account to IP ratinly to actually find out that my comment didn't go to the top, because all of the accounts I used were using the same user-agent. I am not saying to use a unique User-Agent for every single account, but don't try to use the same User-Agent on like 10-20 accounts that you use to rate a comment, cause chances are it will make your comment not go to the top. Sometimes this actually doesn't hold true, but in the majority of cases when I have tested this 1 user agent test, I've actually found out that most of the times the comment didn't go to the top. Reality Check #6: Ghosts do exist on Youtube! Well, not real ghosts but Youtube Ghosting . This is a well known fact, but for those of you that still don't know what Ghosting is or how does it happen. Ghosting is when you are basically in a way talking to yourself, you can see your own comments and everything you comment looks normal but when you view it from another IP all of the sudden you can't either see your comment, its labeled as spam, or is simply not on the top comments like you were seeing it while logged in or in your ip. There are actually 2 types of Ghosting , I like to call them the 'IP Ghosting ' and the 'Account Ghosting ' . Basically the 'IP Ghosting ' is when you cannot see that you are being Ghosted from your ip, and you actually need to view your comment from another IP to see if you are actually Ghosted or not, this one is the worst and harder to detect. The 'Account Ghosting ' is actually not hard to detect , you just need to log off and you can see pretty much the opposite that you see while you are logged in. With 'Account Ghosting ' you don't need to go through the trouble to get another IP to see if you are ghosted. Although, it is recommended to view your comments in another IP just so you can see if you are Ghosted or not. As to what causes the Ghosting , well I don't have the specifics to that yet but I can basically tell you is more towards the quality of the IP itself then depending on how many accounts you used with that IP that were softblocked or blacklisted can add to the Ghosting as well.The comments you post will also add to the Ghosting effect. However, it is still unknown to me how to get out of the Ghosting effect besides cleaning your cookies and switching IPs and accounts. But I will definitely try to find out how to get an IP out from the 'IP Ghosting ' after I do some more tests, which will take some time to get some good conclusions. Just as you might have discovered, when your ghosted you actually never even see any of your comments labeled as spam so its hard to know when you are ghosted. You usually get suspicious when you don't get the traffic that you have expected, so always check twice from another IP that you haven't used to spam Youtube for your comments to see if everyone else can see them. Again if you guys have any questions that you don't want to post here in public, you guys can hit me up or just post your reviews, comments here on this thread. I hope we can spark some interesting conversations and see if there are any intelligent beings out there who is still in the game!
