    Hello,

    this just happened to some of my own and my clients videos.

    YouTube sent me an email saying that I bought fake views (which of course I did) and so my video was set to private + all of the views and likes were set back to zero (but they did not delete the video). I actually used a very professional provider and I was working with him for a long time and nothing ever happened.

    Does anyone know what's up with this? Did YT do some changes lately? Cause normally if a video is suspect they just delete it.
    Do you know up to date methods that ensure that they will not notice the fake views?

    Thanks

    Hell yea they did. They hired some folks to do some YouTube "policing" and are shutting down accounts "as they see fit".

    Can't help with the 2nd question.

    Happening more than ever now, Facebook stripping away fake likes, youtube removing views and twitter banning accounts. I think it has more to do with IP addresses, it's not natural for all social signals or views to come from one IP. They need to happen 1 by 1 otherwise the social networks can automatically know they are fake.
