    The seem to be gaining more than 100 subs a second. Some kind of exploit? They do have two other channels one with the same content on a channel with 20k subs and one in Russian with over 1 Mil. Apparently they have only posted two videos ever on this channel. What do you think is going on?

    There is no way this channel doesnt end up being banned, wonder how they are pulling it off though.

    The site they got into or made has to have very high traffic and their other channel as above is russian and in the channel gaining subs majority of comments saying "why am I subbed" are in english but some russian comments fell through too. A big site with some related russian content?

    I don't know how to do it with websites/facebook but I know how to do it on mobile with custom android youtube client.
    Still, I don't know what's the purpose.
    On old channel with 1kk subs, he have 1-2mln x 30 videos. It's very easy to do it with normal but popular content like anime.

    ...and what is 30mln-60mln views? I don't know youtube specific but I bet it's some $1000-$5000 and cash over ;)
    for me not worth, unless someone tell me it's a lot more of cash ;)

    That rate will get them over 1,000,000 subscribers in less than a day. I wonder nwhat's the economic benefit of doing something like this assuming Youtube doesnt pull the channel. If subscribers are asking why are they subscribed without their consent then things are gonna turn sideways very fast. The type of jacking technique is interesting however but doesn't seem to have an economic angle other than to sell this jacking software to those of us who will get our accounts closed eventually.
    The best software for Youtube would be one that optimizes your channel and place it on the what's to watch next or the recommended list in the right hand column. Imagine if you could get your video the watch next position of 100 viewers per second.

    probably even less cash with the whole ad crash thing the ongoing past few weeks and now youtube favoring longer videos from here on out. you talking about mobile sites are something completely different, sounds interesting

    ya I agree, getting into recommended or better yet trending will definitely be way more optimal because of right audience who are more likely to stick around. I mean maybe if you do it to get 10 subs-100 subs a day and just play it off like youtube was automatically subbing ppl but more then that would be fishy

    Over 200k gained since topic started now up to 550k:
    https://socialblade.com/youtube/channel/UC9LzDBcI5S1jPrVV1dGdeIg/realtime

    BUT Youtube Admins on the scene so RIP that account most likely. But if there is a method out there prepare your angus if it sticks:

    "Hey, folks, we're actively investigating this. If you've been unwillingly subscribed to this channel, could you please get me some debugging information?

    • What browser and OS are you using?
    • What extensions (if any) do you have installed? (Please check the list, in case there are any that you didn't intentionally install.)
    • Please open a video (any video), right click the player, click "Copy debug info", and paste it in for me.
    Feel free to send it by PM if you're not comfortable posting publicly."

    Yeah true considering how picky Google is when it comes to trying to get a one-up on other channel owners. There are API based software for Youtube that do the optimizing thingy to get your videos ranked in the top list. Once yu optimize your videos to appear in the Top 10 you could then automate views to your videos the minute they are ranked and get them in the recommended and next to watch stream. I wonder if I could be able to pull this off.

    Doesn`t matter how they do it, it`s pretty impressive, but I think they should monetize it fast and now with youtube adsense if they want to get some money out of this trick :)

    Confirm youtube sub exploit. Reported to Youtube and see if they can close this exploit fast enough.

    One of the comments :

    If it was a jacker than what are the chances that the same person visited the same website twice and got jacked twice. This means that they have control over the accounts somehow.

    Would love to get my hands on some of the users system debug info to dig little deeper in this.

    Maybe a popular browser extension went rouge or they found a nice little YT hole that they are exploiting. Whatever it is hats off to them.
