    Hi,

    Recently i have been coming across quiet a few channels on youtube that are using there channel name as to way to entice people to click there videos. So they name there channel something like 1,342,990 so when you see this video in the search results you are tricked in to clicking it thinking it's got that many views when in actual fact it's just there username and actual video only has a small number of views.

    My question is how are they getting away with this because most of the videos they are uploading are already on youtube so i would of thought they are duplicating content? One such channel i found is this one:

    Thanks

    Im not buying it, I think your trying to introduce a new audience, and using the forum as traffic.
    This is most likely your account.
