    I figured Google would catch on and change it around a bit. It seems as if Google has been on the ball as of late when it comes to blackhat techniques. Oh well, I'm sure someone will figure out another way around it.

    They probably hired more douches to stalk the forums to steal our methods.

    This is huge, they have had 2 blogposts within a week that target artificial means of youtube promotion. They also had one on view counts on january 6th (Can't post linkk yet)

    It will be interesting to see the effect on january 12th, and any new actions against fake views.

    which world are you in? the one I'm in; the harder it gets, the more expensive the methods become.

    I suspect that we'll see a huge drop of subscribers with raywilliamjohnson then. I have a friend who was doing fake subs for him (hired by ray) for months and added a good 100,000+ subs to his account. haha

    I wonder how much he made from 1.5 billion views, because his videos suck.
