    Hi, I have 15 Linux based OS VPSs laying around doing nothing. They`re nothing fancy. 1 gb of ram with a dual core cpu.

    I used them to control Twitter accounts, but I`d like to maximize the profit off of them.

    Long story short, I have a couple of ORIGINAL music videos on my YT channel and as many of you know YT ranks music videos based on the retention and how many times a person REPLAYS the video without refreshing the page.

    I was thinking of maybe developing a script [dont know how, maybe with iMacros? idk..] that opens the browser, visits the YT video page and replays the video for 3-5 times then refreshes the page for around 10 times.

    10 views times 15 equals 150 high retention views with multiple playback times on every view. After that I would shut down the VPSs so that I get a new IP, delete the browser history and cookies and start over again.

    Would that be possible? Is that profitable for me or theres something I`m missing out right now? Can someone please tell me how would I do that on a Linux based machine [viewing videos and stuff since I am using Putty to connect]? [I can delete them and create Windows machines if not]

    PS: Any other ideas to what I might do with the proxies that would benefit my music video would be gladly appreciated. Thanks a lot!

    Why? They`re VPSs, they cant be traced in any way. It`s the same thing as when I watch a singer over and over again and refresh his music video page a dozen times every day.

    If they do not get banned, why would my channel would?

    This is wrong on so many levels. Since when did VPS providers give the instance a new IP every time the VPS is restarted? How would you connect to it the IP is changed? You can't just increase the views by refreshing the browser alone. If YouTube's view counting algorithm is that much easy to manipulate with a dozen of VPS, every other pop singer will have at least 3754988525214778 MegaGazillion views by now.

    The IPs are dynamic. I use Azure, I have a subscription with them. Every time I SHUT DOWN not RESTART the VPS, I get a new IP. I configured the VPSs with squid to use them as proxies. I created DOZENS of Twitter accounts just with 5 VPSs at first because I was shutting them down and shutting them on and off and on and off again and again and the accounts are fine to this day.

    I dont connect to them through the IP, but through a username and a pass or a certificate at times like I did when I used to use AWS from Amazon, though I find it oddly uncomfortable.

    As for the YouTube algorithm, why not? If it would work as if it was a real person behind a computer somewhere in the US watching a video over and over again because he/she likes the video so much, the views being from different IPs.

    I mean cmon, it`s pretty obvious the views providers here and on other forums use two methods. They either have a view exchange website and add clients videos in queue or by having a custom bot that`s using private proxies to create the views.

    I know theres A LOT more to the algorithm but if you say this wont work, I`d like to understand it better, for my general knowledge of course WHY it won`t work, so please do explain. :D

    dosnt really work like that.. those IPs from azure are listed as datacentre ips and are automatically blocked by YouTube's algorithm. There are so many better and more efficent ways to going around this while still utilizing those servers. You could invest a little bit into getting residential rotating proxies and running a bot with them on the servers.

    This is actually really useful information and what I was afraid for. Do you think they could potentially be dangerous for Twitter use as well? As for the residential IPs, I`ve checked out some prices on Google and they`re sadly super expensive. I pay for my Azure per hour and the cost is really small like 0.011 cents for every hour and that is a lot more affordable than the residential IPs.

    Well at least I`ve tried even though I thought it might not be as easy as that.

    PS: If anyone has any other ideas on how I could promote my music videos with the help of the VPSs I would greatly appreciate it. I know theres a lot of stuff thats better said in private than on a public thread so if you feel like helping a brother out just PM me :D
