We are constantly testing every YouTube views service provider on our site to make sure our reviews and recommendations are as up-to-date as possible. We analyze everything from their service pricing, plans, and customization options, to viewer geo-location, traffic sources, delivery speeds, viewer retention rate, organic engagement, and even subscriptions driven. We test providers with both short (1-2 minutes) and longer (15-30 minute) videos to make sure that viewer retention stays high. We even evaluate the ordering experience, customer support, and their refund and replacement policies.
Buying views for your YouTube video is not the only way to increase your views and it’s not the best way to gain views either — but it is easy, fast and it works. Many people and businesses, including influencers and big marketing agencies, do it as part as their overall strategy. Buying views for YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook can be very advantageous to your video’s success. Overall, we think you should buy views if you want to:
You may have seen and even considered using a cheap provider for YouTube views – there are a handful of them out there — without thinking much of it. Why pay more for views if they’re all going to increase your view counter anyway? Unfortunately, it’s not that simple and views are not all equal. Buying the cheapest views you can find may actually hurt you more than you think and that’s where quality comes into play.
Low-quality views are generally produced by bots (they’re fake) that may be sourced from third-world countries, have a very low viewer retention, and lead to no engagements at all. The most noticeable thing that you may experience with these views is losing all of them if YouTube detects them as fake. That may seem to be the worst thing that can happen, but in reality it could get worse. Stuck in the middle are low-quality views that YouTube considers real and can severely harm you’re videos success. The lower retention rate of these low-quality views (ie. Views that only watch 5-10% of your whole video) may hurt your video’s ability to rank higher on search results, get suggested on similar videos, and even get de-listed from searches. Buying cheaper views may cost less, but they not only add no value to your videos — they may bring this inherent negative value you may not even notice.
On the flip side, High-Quality YouTube Views are the exact opposite and may help your video tremendously, increasing your average viewer retention, increasing likes, dislikes and comments, and overall being sourced from verifiable sources. All of these add up to your video gaining real exposure, ranking higher on organic YouTube and Google searches, getting suggested more frequently and gives you the long-term success you’re actually looking for.
This is why we care and test so thoroughly for Viewer Quality, and why you’ll find it’s the first thing we mention about every provider we list. Are they offering High-Quality or Low-Quality views. Next time you buy YouTube views — make sure you’re buying and actually getting high-quality views.
We get asked all sorts of questions about buying YouTube views and we’re here to help get you the answers. Here are top questions asked by our visitors and our expert’s answers to each one.
Yes. Buying views is a thing. You can purchase thousands or even millions of views (real or fake) for any video. There are hundreds of companies, platforms and individual sellers. We’ve tested over 120 providers so far, and most of them delivered.
There are literally THOUSANDS of ways to deliver views, so answering this question isn’t straightforward. Good companies use creative marketing, optimized PPC campaigns, video placements, and social media marketing. Bad companies may use 1×1 popups, click farms or bots.
It depends on the company you choose. You can buy real views just like you can buy fake views. Some of the more reputable companies offer real views, some offer a mix and others offer simple and cheap fake views.
Maybe, and only if they pay close attention. If you buy from a good provider that sells real views, then your views will come in slowly and look very natural. On the other hand, fake views from bad providers will usually come in very quickly and look unnatural, and they will have low average watch times.
Not directly. We’ve found that buying views (even real views) doesn’t perform well with YouTube Ads. Many companies don’t allow it either because it makes delivering views more costly. Our recommendation: Turn off Ads before buying views, and turn them back on afterward.
The price you pay for views varies based on quality and method. Prices range from $1 to $10 per 1,000 views. $1 providers usually offer fake views and $10 providers offering real and organic views. This isn’t always the case (lots of expensive scammers out there), but it’s a good reference.
From our experience, not usually. 80% of the videos we tested did not receive any likes, dislikes or comments alongside views. Only a handful of videos tested actually gained natural engagements and even then it was a little (a few dozen at most). We recommend buying likes and/or comments when buying views – just to make it look more natural.
Tricky question. We didn’t gain any subs, clicks or sales, but we also didn’t test commercial videos or optimize our videos to attract subscribers. In theory, we would say maybe. Even if you don’t gain ANYTHING from the bought views, the additional views you gain from ranking better and getting suggested more often is sure to bring in targeted viewers that may subscribe, click your link, or buy something expensive.
