    Hello!

    So lately i saw many services providing those Geo Targeted Views for YT! What's the point in them? Do they help rank videos in specific countries or how do they work?

    Yes, with international views you can get a better ranking in the youtube serp in "all" counties. But with geotargeted views you can get a much better ranking in this countries AND you have the chance to find you video in the country-charts (youtube.com/charts, depends on the country you are). And of course its important for videos with public statistics. If you are a Turkish rapper and you get 99% of the hits from russia.. so its not realy good for your reputation.

    A lot of people who purchase GEO views from me simply want viewers from the country where they are from and speak the same language that they do. For instance, if someone is from Mexico and speak spanish, what's the point of getting English speaking viewers from the United States which do not understand the video? Then they purchase Mexico views and get viewers who speak Spanish and understand the video. Of course ranking comes into play also, but I don't think that's why majority of people purchase them from me.

    Also keep in mind that those providers won't give you any guarantee those views will work. But if they do, it's kinda better for a country you need to rank. But I won't be that specific about this one.
