    Hey guys ! I'm wondering what are the pros of buying youtube videos. The most obvious is the sense of "authority" it gives a video which will cause more people to trust and watch the video.

    I'm wondering if buying views helps with anything else such as youtube ranking?

    Thank you

    This has been answered a lot, you should have used the search bar.

    What helps rank your video the most is watch time (plus correct metadata). So views with high audience retention work great.

    since we will never know the algorithm we will never know is the views that help the video rank or other factors like social signals, meta data, etc.

    I see.. it seems obvious that buying views can't stand alone and must also be combined with marketing, "on page" seo (for the videos themselves), and having good content

    yes this is a must, but also if you buy views, you need to go for high retention or absolute retention views, since this is now the key factor that youtube admit that counts, for example if you have 100K views with retention of 25%, this will show youtube that you may have a promotion or traffic sources, but in quality the video isn't perform well, so this can lead to a lower ranking, it's better to get 10K with 95%+ retention, since this will show that although you have less traffic, the users "love" the content and most of them stays until the end of the video, that will "convince" youtube to rank you higher than other videos.

    to be honest I don't think views make that much of a difference, I used to religiously blast my videos with geo targeted high retention views but recently i started to get lazy and just never got around it. Discovered that my videos started ranking from just social media sharing, on sites like reddit and facebook

    There are obviously several metrics easy to think of off the top of your head. Views used to do the trick but now you have to consider any metrics their algorithm might use and target as many as you can. That doesn't mean you can't still trick their system. It just means it's harder than it once was. I've been coding a tool for YT for a long time. If it were just views I'd have finished it a long time ago.

    Definitely has worked for me, a few of my videos notified me that they were getting very popular and even ended up on youtube front page, it depends on who you goto

    Buying views will help you in giving a slight boost to your videos, After that if you video is good and optimized then you will see organic views rolling in easily.

    Many people buy views but only pro get their video to top or just luck. I think they have tutorials or secret method. It makes them more successful after buying views
