YouTube Traffic - How do they do it?

49 replies
I've noticed several Fiverr gigs where they offer to send thousands of viewers to your YouTube video. Usually it is something like this:

**
Need Views to your video on Youtube? We can help you!! We have thousands of members ready to see your video now. We send only 100% safe Real Human traffic to your video (no risk of being banned)! Real Human Traffic!!! Not a bot program!! 2,500+ Real, Fast and Guaranteed Youtube views to your video for just $5.
**
Now I know the views are pretty useless because the person only views the first few seconds of the video. However, I'm curious how they are doing this. I figured one of you Warriors would know the secret!

      So then they are just lying about the "real human" traffic, bots, etc? That was what I was assuming, but thought I'd throw the question out there...

        Yes, I'd avoid buying those offers.

        Youtube isn't dumb, they'll know that something is wrong if you have thousands of views but zero likes or comments.

        If you have to buy traffic I'd buy from a traffic exchange, possibly a manual one. So that users have to at least watch part of your video, maybe they even like it.

    they will refresh the youtube page every 20 seconds with an ip changer so after 60min one hour you will have 180 views, now 2,500 hits = 2,500 minutes which is 13 hours so they would do this overnight simples

    Sometimes they might run a pop-up to the video -- like a pop-up ad, except it's not an ad that's popping up, it's a youtube video. That way the visits are coming from "real" people and different IPs (however those people never chose to view the video, of course).

    Bots and Proxys don't work anymore. You have to send Real People to your video in order to increase its views.

    YouTube isn't dumb, but right now getting thousands of views and zero likes or comments works just fine.

    Why do you need views anyway? I upload myself playing the piano and the type of views I want are genuine people who are interested in listening to me play. I'd rather have 302 interested viewers than 10,000 viewers that are just cruising by with no interest.

      Thanks for all the info. I wasn't really interested in doing any of the Fiverr gigs - I agree that it is mostly junk traffic that they send. I was just curious how exactly they were doing it...

      I knew you guys would have the answers!

      Thanks

        Yeah I paid for 10000 hits to my site from fiverr.com. Bigest waste of time ever! Not one single conversion and I normally have a 10% conversion rate on this page.

        Oh well a lesson learnt.

    It seems that anything like views quickly, extra followers on twitter for low prices, or bulk traffic such as a million visits to your website are all too good to be true. I never have had any results by trying those and it usually ends up causing problems such as eating bandwidth.

    Sort of like the exactseek paid sponsored ads $12 month for 3 month ad. Fake clicks that do not convert but it will boost your views if you enter a keyword phrase like Facebook, Twitter, Google, Etc... Any site that gets tons of views.

    I would stay clear of purchasing those fake, cheap traffic because YouTube ain't dumb and you may get penalized for doing that.

    Simply focus on providing quality video content while adhering to some simple video SEO and you will do just fine.

    Cheers!

    I haven't done it yet, but I'm thinking of this Fiverr.com approach to boost YouTube traffic:
    1. Hire someone for $5/hr.
    2. Forward Google Alerts to them.
    3. Have them respond using a web-based browser e-mail that you control so you can monitor their progress. In their e-mail, they invite people to visit the video, and they give them a real reason to do it.
    4. Pay them a bonus based upon results, if that's affordable.

    What do you think of the idea?

      sounds good, paying the bonus is a good incentive for them to really give it a good try. You could go to o-desk and get someone from the Phillipines for $2 and hour, and I reckon than Filipino outsourcers absolutely rock, they have the best attitudes, are respectful and work so well from clear instructional videos.

      Just be aware that if you use fiverr - they have no way to set up a bonus structure. So, you will have to pay them another $5 as a gig OR find a way around it (without a violation of TOS )

      I dont quite understand.

      1. Hire someone for $5/hr. OK got it... I think (Of course Fiverr is $5 flat, i presume you mean you'll outsource elswehere? i.e., oDesk, etc)
      2. Forward Google Alerts to them. OK got it
      3. Have them respond using a web-based browser e-mail that you control so you can monitor their progress. OK got it
      In their e-mail, they invite people to visit the video, Invite people from where? and they give them a real reason to do it. Meaning what?

    It can be verified easily. If 2500 views received with no comment or like/dislike, then definitely it's fake and artificial views.

    As someone who used to offer YouTube views, I would advise you not to purchase any views and that it's better to let your videos grow organically.

    If you are wondering how I sent views, I actually used to own several large vlogs (video blogs) and then used several hundred social media accounts (first on MySpace, when it was popular, and then on Twitter and Facebook) and would post regularly video links throughout the day.

    Chris Kent mentioned above a service that used to be available, it was called Jumpstart, and it was one of the reasons I got out as I couldn't compete on price.

    Another was the changes that YouTube implemented on how to count 'external' views, views from links outside of the site itself.

    Over the last few quarters, Google is really counting on YouTube becoming a major source of revenue so they have gotten really strict about external views and the ads running over videos that might get a lot of views from other sources.

    I bought a fiverr gig 1 month ago from jmcjmc which claims to send real views to your video. Almost 4000 views have been sent so far but there has been no likes/dislikes or comments for the video. There hasn't been any traffic to the site from the video either.

    I told him this but he insisted that they are real views from real people. It seems the views are either bot traffic or the traffic quality is poor if it is from real people.

    I'll suggest steering clear of such offers because ultimately,they don't give you value for your investment.Most of those guys are scam artists and just use some of those methods described by different members.I hope you guys don't do that personally!

    Most of the views service today are fake bot.

    But there still some real people real views but the traffic will be slow as 50-100 per day.

    The Youtube will not count the views if them watch the video less than 30 seconds.

    Getting comment and like also is easy to do.

      30 seconds will weed out some bots, that's fine. But what about videos less than 30 seconds? I think the rule might be 30 seconds or the full video for videos less than 30 seconds.

    They are not all scam. Actually some they do it for real.

    What they do is that there are websites where you collect points by viewing other people videos and in exchange people view their.

    These traffic worth it and it is real human not bots but you have to make sure you know who are you buying it from.

    If you care about your channel, you might want to avoid these types of services. Believe me they are tempting, I even though about doing some of them for my most successful video that has 175,000 view, but in the end, if you place value on your channel and want a youtube partnership, it's best to tread lightly in this type of territory.

    This will increase your YouTube video view count. So, Your video will rank up and more real people will get your video. This is the reason why people are buying views for their video. Likes and comments are also factor.

      Although you will most likely see the results from this, youtube is very smart (it's owned by google), and this can get your video banned/removed pretty quickly if they find out (i would be wary of these tactics).

    What if someone wanted to get traffic to their youtube video
    • they purchased a channel on VideoForward
    • automated their VideoForward page with the video that they wanted to get views on?
    How would that affect their youtube video? How is that perceived from the big search engines?

    It wasn't the purpose of why I purchased VideoForward, but it does give me reason to pause and ponder:rolleyes:

    just an FYI -
    I recently purchased an account from VideoForward - Which I began making $ on, immediately (haven't attempted to market it as an affiliate, but now...)

    Personally I use tube toolbox. I find it better than tubefool in a lot of ways. It is constantly being updated and improved. I have over 4500 friends and 3000 + channel and upload views since I started using it and I don't even use it that much. I don't have any gig on fiverr to get people views though because unless you do the above mentioned spam tactics there is no guarantee as to how many views you will get someone.

    Create an appropriate and catchy title and tag the video with the appropriate keyword phrases.

    Promote your video in several places like embedding the video to your website and other sites. Do social networks, participate in youtube community or pay other webmasters to embed the video on their sites.
