Lately I've seen only a select few people who have posted a video on youtube and right away (meaning within the hour of uploading) their video reaches 350 views, 400 views, 2000 views, etc. I am wondering how that could be possible? I have a few theories. First, I think they upload unlisted and do that method so that by the time they want to make public, it's already on it's way passed 301. Another theory is that adwords and real views play in to effect. I heard that adwords has the fastest TAT because the views come from google/youtube ads so it's easier for them to account for. I just don't get it. On my feed, there are a few videos stuck at 301 and then in between those a certain person has their video passed 301. I don't want to call anyone out, more so figure out WHY they're doing this and HOW they're ABLE to do this.
