    Hi everyone,

    I started my journey with YouTube and I'm making good content, I'm aware that I need to boost my videos in order to get picked by YouTube's algorithm and get more exposed to viewers, but I don't know which service provides best views and which type of views should I get? (High Retention, Mid, Low, Fast...) .
    So that made me pretty confused on which service/type I should choose for views, because I can't test each one of them since I have a low budget, and I figured out that you guys may share your experiences with buying views on different aspects and it should be very helpful to everyone including me.

    When posting your experience please post them as below:

    Lifetime view bought: xxxK views (doesn't have to be that accurate)

    Provider/Type: (Please avoid mentioning resellers) / (The type of views you usually Buy)

    Result: (how many views you get on average after boosting your videos)

    Comment: (Anything else you want to mention)

    Thank you.

    More than half of the views I bought were actually just for making my channel look reputated without intending to drive real viewers to the video / not for SEO purposes. (which sometimes was a nice side effect though)
    For such videos I didn't care much about retention and just bought the cheapest views I could get.


    Lifetime view bought: 1-3m really don't know exactly

    Provider/Type: As I only buy few views (usually less than 100k per month) I do not have a direct supplier, I use reseller panels / Instant HR Views 10k/day or faster

    Result: This really depends on the keyword. Sometimes I buy 10k but only get a few hundred real views from that, sometimes I bought 1k and the video skyrocket. In the end it depends on keyword research and timing.

    Don't know if this helps in any way :D
    Good luck!

    Can you please tell us how many subs you have on a channel when it happens to get huge traffic after boosting the video.

    I haven't bought YouTube views in years, though I can tell you about the last time I purchased views in 2014 and the current status of the video.

    Lifetime view bought:
    I bought exactly 10,000 YouTube views.

    Provider/Type: "High Retention Views" from a Fiverr seller

    Result: 14,437 views after boosting.

    Comment: After I ordered the views, YouTube actually rolled back my view counter and only counted 2,000 of the view I bought. Right now, the video I used the views on has 16,437 views and 3 shares. The channel has a grand total of 12 subscribers.

    The seller I purchased the views from was banned from Fiverr shortly after. I was supposed to receive replacement views for the ones I lost.
