    Hello,
    noob here when it comes to youtube. I see there are tons of services being offered to increase your youtube views/likes etc on fiverr. Now i understand its almost certain that the views are bots. The question i guess is, why would a person buy fake views? Does it actually increase search ranking within youtube by having more views/likes etc? If someone can clarify this, would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    P.S, i am trying to get my youtube video to rank higher in search for my keywords in the title. Trying to figure out if it's worth buying these views and if it would help at all?

    I've never ventured into YT views but I think it would be more of a psychological impact.. I wouldn't watch a video with less than 100 views, so perhaps one with over 1,000 would add a little more interest?

    I would agree that there is a psychological impact. But also if you search any video, chances are that the top result is the most viewed. So yes, I would say it does help.. but with the right keywords I'm personally able to get almost anything on the front page of the search I want.
    Quick Tip: Put your major keywords in your: Video Title, first sentence in description, first tags, and even the file name. Put related keywords as well. Most people on YouTube aren't smart enough to figure something this simple out, so you can own with proper SEO.

    Ultimately though, views do help.. not as much as keywords though.

    Another way to think about yt views is this. Views are like back links for yt. And the keywords are like on page seo.

    It helps search rank and boosts you in other parts of the website, such as the trending page, popular page, recommendation page, etc.


    Think of it like this, if a video has 10 views and is 1 year old, what would your assessment be? That the video is shit and no one likes it. Now imagine a video with 100m views and is 1 year old, what your assessment be now? That the video is fucking amazing and is a must watch.


    Views are to videos what a price is to a product. Higher usually means better, at least that's what the general dumb asses of the world assume.

    Absolutely, views are like backlinks for YT.

    More backlinks = more change to hit page-1 on YT or even Google.

    That's true, videos with the most views are placed on the first pages. Backlinks.

    Views helps on search rankings, what about likes/favorites for the front page?
    I'm thinking about buying likes/favs/views/subs to help me get some videos on the Brazillian first page and manage to get a good boost on my views.

    if you can afford likes and subs go for it. i found out that having likes and subs make your video seems more natural and also helps to rank.

    Buying views is part of the entire youtube ranking system. likes and favorites come next, and subscribers are for people checking to see if you are legit or not. Personally I buy views when I want to rank products I make in a volatile niche or time sensitive material like contests and giveaways. This will help me get organic views, and for my customers they are more in tune to "buy" my products if they seem popular. Other methods combined with the youtube method creates sales and viral effect. This is merely just 1 step in the right direction.

    It can help your ranking on youtube and even make you on frontpage or in popular videos that could triggered viral effect. Other than adding youtube views you can also do a proper onpage seo on your youtube videos to make it easier to rank.

    The main purpose is simple. You need an edge over your competitiors and you need it faster than he does.
    Its do or die choice.

    Also, buying views may assist with getting on the 'trending list'. Like any other service, I'd assume YouTube looks for videos which are getting a large number of views in a short time span.

    YT tries to rank the popular videos higher than the video which are hardly noticed. The popularity quotient is based on the number of views, likes, channel authority(#subscribers) and interactiveness(#comments). That's why people are running after them :)

    I sell views to companies and digital ad agencies that want their videos to "go viral" on YouTube. The rationale is as follows: A. If the video "trends" then the organic views that come are quite valuable. B. A lot of the people involved in the decision making chains at these companies are trying to demonstrate their own value. So if an ad agency spend 30k making a "viral video" for coca cola, they don't want the view count to be 3200 views. And by the way, a lot times this actually works. We did a campaign for a movie. They bought like a million views (10ยข/ view I might add) and the video caught on like wildfire and ended up with about 20Million views.
