    Right now my videos get a few thousand views from loyal subs.

    Is it better to:
    Have ads on while early subs watch then spend on a few thousand HR views when views get to 50-100 per hour (ads off during this)
    or
    turns ads off and turn on HR views right when video goes live (ads back on when HR views done)

    What gives better rank? why also?:p

    did you try to send HR views (or full retention views) as unlisted for 2-3 days and then stop HR traffic and switch to public & notify subs?

    wouldn't that look extremely fishy to subs?
    I can see a few hundred views on a vid but HR views for a few days? :eek:

    Well it's hard to advice without knowing the nature of the channel/niche and what is the video about, how hard or easy to rank it high, or if the terms are very competitive, it can also get the HR views in a few hours, but only day later (must give 24 hours for ALL the HR views to finish if you don't want to risk anything) you can turn the ads on.

    i must make a disclaimer i never tested this, this is all theory, i know it's hard to enjoy from all the worlds, as ranking with HR, using subs to boost, and ads to monetize, too many eyes are watching...
