Google Is Charging Advertisers for Fake YouTube Views

YouTube’s views counter registered fake youtube views and still charged the advertisers.

Google Is Charging Advertisers for Fake YouTube Views

A research study based out of a Ottawa claims that YouTube has been charging advertisers for YouTube views even when it thinks that the ads were viewed by a robot rather than an actual human.

The research group based out of Ottawa is behind this study. They did an experiment in which they uploaded a video to YouTube and then bought YouTube advertisement targeting those videos. They also went online and bought YouTube views from views providers for the video.

While the YouTube bots viewed two of the videos over 500 times, YouTube’s view counter only listed 100 of the views after finding out that a majority were fake.

Google Is Charging Advertisers for Fake YouTube Views

When they checked there Google’s AdWords advertising platform charged for 500 Youtube views.

Google went on to say that they take fake traffic very seriously and have invested a significant amount of money to track this kind of online blackhat views method. They also went on to say that most of the invalid YouTube views traffic are filtered from their systems before advertisers are ever charged.

They claim that while YouTube puts the effort to combat fake youtube views going to videos a substantial number of fake views get passed there system.

It adds that while YouTube’s system for detecting fake views significantly outperforms others, it may still be susceptible to simple attacks.

Sometimes YouTube will penalize it’s users for buying fake youtube views to their videos. The problem with that is another factor comes into play. People have started buying fake youtube views to their competitors in the hopes of getting that video banned.

YouTube has stopped banning videos recently because of to many complaints from users all over the world asking WHY there videos got banned in the first place. For now, if YouTube suspects that your views are fake they remove SOME of the views, not all.

How YouTube Views Work ?

Have you ever wondered How YouTube Views Work? I will explain the process I think how YouTube counts the views.

Every time someone watches a video it is supposed to be counted as 1 YouTube view. There may be some exceptions based on the length of time you watch the video.

At times, YouTube will remove a whole bunch of views that they think have been added by robots instead of Humans. Last year, YouTube removed Billions of views because they deemed they were the result of “BlackHat” methods. Providers such as QQTUBE and GIGAVIEWS were hit with numerous complaints from clients that had bought views through these providers.

You might wonder how YouTube Views work? How are YouTube views counted? What is considered a YouTube view?

How YouTube Views Work

 

YouTube Views Count

When a video is uploaded by a user on YouTube it is cached on different YouTube servers spread around the globe. This is done for faster response times between YouTube and its user. Every time a request is made for a video the closest server provides the video and boosts the views count in its local log. These logs are then updated at certain times and a central views log is then updated.

How YouTube Views Are Calculated

YouTube has not released the details of exactly how YouTube views are counted. It remains a secret as to how the views are counted for certain reasons. YouTube doesn’t want to give away too much details on the exact calculation because even the smallest hint of will cause people to “hack” the system and artificially boost YouTube views.

When a video has a large number of views that last for a couple of seconds after clicking the YouTube video, the views are not counted as legitimate by YouTube. The video is counted by someone who watches the video for more then 30 seconds. This is way Google Adsense works only with YouTube videos that are over 30 seconds so that the click through rates are registered.

The type and genre of video could also be a factor. YouTube also considers views from the same IP address after a 8 hour break. For example one person viewing the same YouTube video repeatedly would only generate a maximum of 5 views a day. I’m sure there are many more restrictions and rules that go into registering a view count that we might not be aware of.

 

Are my YouTube Views frozen? The Old 301 views freeze

Youtube has decided it will not freeze videos with a view count of 301 anymore. The 301 Video views freeze worked if your video received views very fast when you uploaded your video. YouTube would put a freeze on your video at 301 and would unfreeze it after it confirms that the views are real. YouTube did this to filter out fake YouTube views from robots that throw off the actual human views count. The problem started arising when video creators wouldn’t know how well their videos were doing in real time. YouTube announced on August 6 to its Twitter followers it’ll count views as they happen. As far as accuracy and robot views were concerned YouTube said it will only look back over unverified views.

 

In Conclusion, it is still a mystery how YouTube calculates exactly what a YouTube view is.
