    Hi Everyone,

    I have bad news for all Youtube View Providers/Buyers, as well as any Youtube User.

    Youtube/Google has decided to further their unethical ways, when recently, they banned all adwords accounts of sellers/free services providing Youtube Views, as we compete with their paid ad program, and they want a monopoly.

    Recently, about 2-3 days ago, they changed their counter again. The problem is, they have modified the counter, so it doesn't count views with no-referrer (like ours), and almost all other sites. They only count views from Google, YouTube, Facebook and other approved sites, but they do not count any direct, redirected, framed or embedded traffic sources.

    I have already bypassed this system by promoting the youtube videos accross Facebook, to real users. Basically making it go viral by spreading it accross our facebook network. However, this system is not commercial yet, and will be announced in more detail within 1-2 days. It will actually be a more effective system, as far as spreading the word, but also more expensive.


    If you have a current order with us, we can refund for the portion of views undelivered, or hold off and deliver them when the new system is functional. All comments, subscribers, favorites, and ratings are still fully functional.

    Please do not place any View Orders until further notice. All other services are fully functional.


    I would like to thank you guys for your patience and support, as we work really hard to get things going again, as Youtube/Google are constantly being a pain. We will be back soon as we always are.

    So you mean that if I view a video directly on Youtube it does not count as a view?

    If you type in a term from search, and go to the video, or watch it from a link on youtube, like featured, homepage, ect.. it will count, but not if you just go directly to the video, like copying and pasting from an email, ect..

    Sounds like an opportunity for a new bot.

    Yeah. It would have to go to the YouTube home page, type in a search term that the video ranks for, then click the video.

    I think this would work. But you'd probably need to randomize it - using different search terms, clicking other videos as well... of course this would all make it far less efficient.

    But it might be doable.

    Probably not. I don't think Google would be that stupid.

    Of course, this wouldn't affect just blackhatters. All new videos will find it harder to get more views, since viral videos can spread through email conversations, or through a direct link from a large website.

    This is big shit, I have a lot of views left from Ekta & it's same system,
    but yeah, there will be again a new way around I guess in anytime.

    By the way, are the Viewet views not counted, too? Well if not, it is possible to be changed, so that it looks like the video was watched through YouTube search results in example.

    Correct me if I'm wrong!

    Yeah, this big shit at time.
    I have see this issue and i will see the problem is comming up on last friday shortly after the quake in japan. Either it is coincidence that yt change her system or perhaps it has something to do with the quake.
    All parts of yt has played the last days of crazy. Channel-sites, subscribers and so on was'nt. After each reload of the browser i get on all my channels other stats like subs, views and comments. By each reloading!!

    Take it easy babes and look forward. If yt had change again her counting system of external views by dedicated refferer-adresses, he will now die... millions of peoples send daily her videos or favs to friends and so on. Why should it make anyone else?

    And yt earned over the counter no money! And if are the ads are not counted, it would also be fraud by the partner. Because then the advertising would not be paid.

    I have realized up to now, the error only in the counter. Adsense analyzes the views still correctly. But i do not know what it looks by the ypp earnings. I'll only see it in May.

    Yes, it would be better if the source of this information is also listed here. Although I trust OP since he provides such a service, and as such should know for sure before making any announcement.

    Support from one of the other bots I am running just emailed me this:
    Hi,

    Currently, only youtube channel views are working 100%, the video plays only work up to 300 per video due to new coding at youtube to block views, you may try dramatically increasing the time between plays and use the proxy function and see how that works out for you.

    This was explained on the terms in the purchase page.

    YouTube sent out a message concerning "a change in our public-facing view counts across the site that will enable us to consistently reflect what is considered a 'view', based upon video consumption, video streaming and spam filtering."

    You can see that regular views are not getting updated on some accounts on YouTube by checking youtube's bug reporting section here:

    We are testing and researching to find what if any changes have been made in order to get out a new release, it looks like a YouTube issue.
    ____________________________________________________________________
    So as of right now I dont know why my bot is working but I expect it to start declining in the next few days.

    Yes, please do. I have yet to find anything official on any of the help forums on YouTube. Plus if this is true, then they'd already be swamped with pissed off users with frozen counters.

    This is one of those typical "youtube having another brain fart" moments with the counts. This is nothing new.
