YouTube is cracking down on creators that artificially inflate view counts. "When some bad actors try to game the system by artificially inflating view counts," the company said in a statement, "they’re not just misleading fans about the popularity of a video, they’re undermining one of YouTube’s most important and unique qualities."
YouTube is periodically auditing the views of each uploaded video. "While in the past we would scan views for spam immediately after they occurred, starting today we will periodically validate the video’s view count, removing fraudulent views as new evidence comes to light."
Cheap Views Easy To Find
A quick search using Google, which own YouTube for "buy YouTube views" returns services that guarantee "quality and cheap YouTube views" starting at 5000 views for $6 in 24 hours all the way up to 1 million views delivered in 14-24 days for $590.
New YouTube Chief
Google is about to name longtime ad products head Susan Wojcicki as the new head of YouTube, according the information blog, who called it "a surprising move that would place one of the company's earliest employees at the helm of the video unit."
