    Does anyone know if Social Shares work as good or even better then views on youtube ?
    I've come across a certain service on s**clerks in which the seller provided social shares for youtube videos.
    I've never seen such a service before and was a bit sceptical, but he posted a graphic which shows the statistics of a random youtube video he
    "boosted" with his service. The video just has about 100 views and 6000 social shares through all kinds of different social networks.

    I noticed that the graph which shows the views should be at about 100 views but it was over 6000 because of the social shares.

    My theory now is, even if youtube does not show the shares in the view count they obviously still matter. But since shares are shown in the graph will they also have almost the same effect as views
    if we use them for methods like unlisted ?

    Perhaps someone knows this and or is using this to rank his videos.

    Social signals do effect in the terms of ranking buddy, views, social shares, bookmarking, web 2.0 are some of the things that do reflect in ranking, i have done it and still doing it to most of our clients, and in just 15 days TAT they get ranked up on Youtube plus a good income through adsense.
