    We all know that recently youtube stopped displaying mobile views.
    But I really think that youtube is still considering a mobile view less valuable than a NON mobile one.

    So, when buying views, is there a way to tell if the views bought are mobile or not?

    I don't see any difference between mobile views and normal views (PC) as long as they are high retention views.

    Sure? I've tracked my ranking before and after purchasing views, and I've seen better results with 10.000 NON mobile HR views than with 50.000 mobile HR views.

    For me the views are not so much important as they were in the past. A lot of things contributes into ranking a youtube video and the views are just a part of it. What's more important is how much engaged these views are. Are these people just watching the video or they are liking the video..or leaving a comment or even sharing it. Comments, likes, sharing are considered as a measure of engagement or interaction and they can greatly increase the rank of your videos.

    For example: A video with 10000 views (10 comments and 100 likes) will rank better than a video with 30,000 views (1-2 comments and 20 likes).

    A mix of mobile and non-mobile views is essential to show that the things are just normal and staying under the radar.

    Ok guys, I know how the things work, I'm asking if there's a way to know if the views are from mobile devices or not.
    I know that youtube analytics used to show mobile and non mobile views, but now things changed: https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/1714546
