What negatives does it have?
Is it similar to having fake links to a website?
Will you get penalised into oblivion and never ever make a success?

    Why are fake views for youtube videos a bad idea?

    Well, because it's a fake and Youtube doesn't like it at all.
    Youtube is like a REAL beautiful sexy girl who wants a REAL man and especially the RICH man.
    So, fake one will never work!

    C'mon! All you have to see is $4.99 to know it is worthless. The people who are selling them already know that, which is why they only cost $4.99. If they really did something to help, the decimal point would shift to the right at least two places.

    Something that sounds too good to be true is almost always exactly what it sounds like.

      Exactly....starengine, why do you truly want so many views? Bragging rights or to make money?

      If you're trying to make money, which is why most people care about lots of followers/views, then trying to optimize your ads, promotions and video content will be difficult using analytic data of fake views.

      Also...if this was a legit offer, wouldn't you be seeing everyone's youtube channel with trillions of views?

    I think a TRILLION view would be a bit of a red flag.

    OK... this is being a little naughty here...
    I don't need a trillion views. 20,000 will do.
    Not interested if these are all bots.
    Let's assume that I am more worries about the 20,001 viewer of the video - who is real and who will be impressed because they see that the video has already got 20,000 views.

    So paying $4.99 is well worth it?

    Will Google penalise the video BECAUSE of the 20,000 fake views?

      You can find the result easily by doing a test for it.
      But your worries don't make a sense for the real 20,001st viewer,
      since the previous 20K may already make a doom first.
      Again... you may find the real result which can be different by doing a real test.
      So, buy it and give it a try!
      Good luck!

      Yes. If you have already published a video, you will notice Youtube takes time to actually show your views. This is because they are cracking down on such people. And once that happens, guess what happens, your channel gets flagged down and guess what, just like Google ranking, your videos will never show on search result. You would rather join a youtube pod with actual people. Its much better and its free.

      No it is not worth it, once youtube catches you trying to game the system. Your basically go to be up sh*t's creek without a paddle.

    If u want to to fake views then look into "high retention views".
    ALSO dont do only views. Do some yt likes and comments too.

    btw why did u write 5 trillion vieews for 5 usd? If u do that many views on a video then it is certainly bad. I would advice you to get a maximum of 100 fake views in a single shot.
    Once ur video reaches- 200-300 views- U can start buying more fake views on your video but under any case- I will never suggest to buy more than 200-300 views in a single day.

    That can seriously hurt your video.

    I don't think that this will help or hurt you.

    Google and YouTube care about the video's good or bad content by itself.

    Having 5 TRILLION views on any video will not help its ranking.

    On any social media platform, anything that is fake has no value at all. It might work for a single moment but that's all there is to it.
