    Hello there,
    I have been getting into the youtube marketing niche right now, and I have encountered an unexpectable issue, which I didn't realize before.
    After paying for a software to upload my videos and manage them, setting up a website, buying domains, hosting, and putting some time effort into it, I have realized my views just stopped at some point, and didn't go up anymore.
    Somewhere around ~300, and I have found out from an article around here I guess or from a search, that youtube actully limits that until the video is being reviewed (or 24 hours?).
    after looking at some topics in the forum, everybody says "views are dead", what do you mean by that? Did youtube set up an ip limitation? views per day limitation? OR WHAT??
    Really going crazy around here, and doesn't managing to bring the amount of REAL people's views I have expected.
    The big question is, am I doing something wrong? I did spam my videos a bit form the same ip, but how do I supposed to get listed or in top 20 without getting views first? publish by facebook or something? Maybe.

    Any help from anyone would be appriciated a lot,
    thanks.

    You spammed your videos from the same ip ... pretty simple. They lock the views around 300 when you do that. You need different IP's and accounts if you want to do it without getting it locked. There are some services around forums that offer this for you.

    I got one of my video views locked and it hasn't changed since. Good thing it was just a, "test" video.

    1. Wrong section
    2. You are like almost 2 years to late, the thing with fake YT views stopped.

    So, no bot is working for views, which works with proxies. Only ratings / comments / subs.

    What you can do is, to buy cheap traffic, and send it to YouTube.
    So, it is harder to beat YT now, but if you put REAL work into it, and choose the right videos, you can still make a lot of money.
