Hi Guys, First off, if this is in the wrong section I apologise and it can be moved to a more relevant place. Secondly, I will try to keep this is as short and to the point as possible, so here goes. I've been doing youtube for two and a half years now, the legitimate way and although it was working on a small consistent basis, for the last six months I've been stuck in a rut where my views have dipped and subscribers have slowed down. I recently started looking at SEO companies and Social Media Specialists to see if they could help my channel/videos get more exposure. I got a company saying they will charge me £150 (GBP) per month to help my channel/video rise. Upon doing more research I found an article saying any company only taking £200 or less per month for SEO work will not do a good job. While also looking at the people per hour website I've noticed a lot of people offering three thousand views for roughly £10 which they say will be real human, high retention, safe views (some even say Adsense safe but I would never risk that). The questions I ask to you guys are the following: Is it worth me hiring an SEO/Social Media Specialist company? And if so is £150 too cheap to expect good results? My main concern is that they would just buy views/likes/comments for dirt cheap then charge me the £150 like they've done a good job Do any of you guys here buy views? And if so, is it safer than before to buy them without your video getting removed or banned? Do these real human views actually exist or are they pulling a fast one and using bots? Last question. If buying views, would it be better to buy a bulk amount (e.g. 50,000) to try and get your video on first page suggested or is it better to do say 3,000 views per video for a while to get high retention so the videos get placed in more suggested videos with regards to the relevant keywords? Thanks for your time, I appreciate any help I can get on this situation.
