    Quick question: I noticed as recent as a few days ago, some YouTube view suppliers deliver their views from an embedded video on autoplay on what appears to be a dummy site. These views show up with the dummy sites url as the referrer in the YouTube stats (20k views from "viralzoo" for example). I'm assuming these YouTube view sellers are just pushing web traffic to these sites with the embedded video. My question is..if YouTube doesn't count views on autoplayed embedded videos and iframed videos anymore, how are these dummy referrers able to register views on YouTube? I want to set up a site, embed a video on it and push a ton of cheap web traffic through it to create YouTube views. Any insight?

    Doesn't youtube count the views if the embeded video is set on autoplay on your channel's page? I mean the same video you want to promote on a webpage.

    They examined youtubes view algorithm. They dont really use viralzoo.com as embedded website. They probably just use that as referrer. But they can use any website as referrer.

    This is exactly correct - This is a pretty old method really, but more view exchanges seem to be using it nowadays.
