    I've boosted views on dozens of videos in the past, some as much as 100k in a day's period, and they've never gotten shut down. Now it seems to be different. I purchased YT views from 2 different sources (20k high retention, 45k low retention), and I had a great original video in a low competition niche to send the views to. After sending the views, the video got taken down in 48 hours later. In the message that says my video got taken down, it also said that I will be further monitored for suspicious activity. I don't want to lose my Youtube account (I've put a lot of work into it), but I do want to use the video specifically on this account (because it matches the content of other videos on the account).

    Has anyone here had further difficulty boosting videos after having one previously taken down? The reviews on my view sources are completely positive and indicate that nobody else had their video's removed due to their traffic - is it possible that attempting to boost using multiple services was what tipped Youtube off? It seemed both of my sources were over-delivering - I had 40k views and 330 Likes in only a few days.

    Or are we getting to the point where you can't boost videos anymore without using extreme caution? Make no mistake, I'm going to experiment - but a few tips from a kind soul who is privvy to YT's detection methods could save me a lot of time and money. :)

    I think we are at the point of can't boosting videos anymore without extreme caution.
    A lot of my videos are taken down in these weeks, generally this 1-2 months. And all of them are the videos that use "paid" viewers, even videos that are 4-5 months back are taken down, because of the same reason.

    I also have been told that if I did it again my channel will be taken down.
    Until now I prefer to keep my channel than risking it for paid viewers.

    I have a good six videos with 50k+ boosted videos (and one with 200k boosted) that haven't been taken down, but I boosted these videos over 6 months ago. I'm angry at myself for not better taking advantage of the view-loophole while I could. So if we were talking about 'extreme caution' - I'd assume we'd have to rule out Fiverr. And considering the Fiverr has been my go-to source, I'm out of options.

    Choose your views providers carefully. I also had few videos removed because of a bad provider. But after changing it no videos were removed. Also make sure that it looks naturally in YT's eyes. Add likes, subscribers, social signals and backlinks at the same time when you are receiving the views.

    hey bro, i stopped using views because YT kept removing most of my videos, and also I wanted to check whether i'd be able to rank my videos or not and i succeeded in ranking the videos....my video has around 130-160 views only(of which around 70 views are mine :D), but still they're ranking at top for their keywords...so i'd suggest u to stop buying views just after uploading the videos, wait for atleast 5 days. Use PVA accounts.And Keep Uploading videos, never stop. :)

    Just recently I received a similar email after a week of buying views for my videos. Now i'm searching for a safe views provider.

    I have yet to see anyone actually get their channel taken down for these emails/violations. If they were going to do that, just think how easy it would be to take anyones channel down. People would buy views for their competitors video and it would get their whole channel taken down. The fact that they are not just filtering these views and are actually suspending videos and taking them down is ridiculous. If they know what the issue is, why wouldn't they just stop it from counting towards a video?

    As a view provider myself, I've made several modifications on my side to further protect my customers. I have the cheap LQ views, which could possibly cause issues and I offer no guarantee after the views are delivered, due to the price being cheap and having issues with this. Then I have HQ views which are a bit more expensive, but we have yet to have any issues with them and if something were to happen, we offer a refund. This is simply to let the buyer choose between cheap views for a quick boost and expensive views for a more long term campaign/video.

    No problem at my end. Most of the views provider do offer guarantee that their views are safe but in reality I don't think there is any supplier which can actually offer safe views.

    I don't know, it already is feeling pretty easy. Seems like I can kill off people's videos at $5 by sending cheap Tube traffic...this is obviously begging to be abused. Really, i wouldn't be surprised if you could bring down entire channels for less than $30 if you could actually get accounts in trouble for this. Should start holding popular Tuber's hostage: "Mention my site/ad at the beginning of your video or your channel is coming down". :rolleyes:

    Realistically, you only need $5 to bring down one video and make the threat. Once they see in the message that their account is being monitored for further suspicious activity - I'm not too sure what they can do other than rely on Youtube's joke appeal system.
