    I've tried 1 million views but its too much and the Likes eventually DO NOT even out. So the video ends up looking botted. What is a Reasonable or the best amount of views to Frontpage a video? The views have to be enough to frontpage, and the video will get about 600 likes on it's first day.

    Hi, i know about the new algorithm. Frontpaging a video takes care of that. But I need to know the Reasonable or the best amount of views to Frontpage a video without it looking botted.

    Since the new algo, it isn't just about the number of views.

    Hope your understand.

    LOL for front page there is no need for retention :) Once you hit the front page - retention will come from that and thus keeping your ranking higher.
    To hit the front page there is no difference between 1 second or 1,000 second retention FYI - their system is not looking for that at all.

    I've always found that there are a few sweet spots for frontpage... One being 60k-100k that will frontpage you OCCASIONALLY, and 90% of the time between 300k and 600k will frontpage you (After this continue to blast views to maintain frontpage for a week or so ;)).
