Why you should never buy fake YouTube subscribers

01 Jun, 2021

Youtube fake views are bad for your channel. Never buy them. Don't trust companies who offer cheap YouTube subscribers

Should I buy fake YouTube views and subscribers?

The short answer is NO, NO WAY, NEVER! Please never buy fake views and subscribers. You will ruin everything you try to achieve. You will always regret this decision. Your YouTube channel will never forgive you.

Let us explain something we know about fake YouTube views and fake YouTube subscribers. And we know quite a lot. Every day we deal with our customers’ channels destroyed by this fatal decision. And it’s challenging to fix something that was already damaged.

YouTube’s fake engagement policy (  is very clear about it:

YouTube doesn’t allow anything that artificially increases the number of views, likes, comments, or other metrics either through automatic systems or by serving up videos to unsuspecting viewers....

...If your content violates this policy, we’ll remove the content and send you an email to let you know. If this is your first time violating our Community Guidelines, you’ll get a warning with no penalty to your channel. If it’s not, we’ll issue a strike against your channel. If you get 3 strikes, your channel will be terminated.

The only legit way to buy views is Google Ads or so-called YouTube ads, YouTube’s official ad tool. And this is exactly what Prodvigate does. We run your campaigns over Google Ads, we set the best targeting we can, and we hope you will get the best results you can. Yes, YouTube Ads are not perfect, and yes, it’s a very long way. But it’s the easiest and most legit way available.

But let’s get back to those fake views and subscribers. Let’s start with views. There are two different types of fake views. Very fake views and Almost fake views.

Very fake views are the views that are generated automatically by bots. YouTube is pretty good at fighting these kinds of fake views. The only way available at the momentis browser extensions, harmful apps, or malware. It’s when someone is watching your videos without even knowing it. The browser runs a YouTube page in the background, and it’s invisible to the browser’s owner. YouTube policy is calling it use of automatic systems.

Almost fake views are views generated by real people who watch them as pre-rolls on very shady websites, often with illegal or mature content. Just imagine your video surrounded by all this trash, and someone who is waiting to see something trashy must wait 30 seconds to skip the YouTube video. YouTube policy is calling it serving up videos to unsuspecting viewers.

Now, let’s talk about fake YouTube subscribers. They are always very fake… VERY VERY FAKE. Behind these subscribers are usually bots. Sometimes it can be real people who are getting pennies for subscribing to your channel. But none of them will watch your new videos. Because bots don’t watch videos, and if there are real people, they usually don’t use their work channel to watch the videos of people they are fooling.

Here is a good example of someone who spent tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of USD to buy fake views and subscribers:

Youtube Channel Fake Views Example

You see, there is an impressive number of subscribers. 62.3k is a good number. But wait what? LOL. Let’s see the view count.

1 day ago - 145k views. Great! But fake

2 days ago - 505 views. OMG. He forgot to buy fake views for this video.

3 days ago - 103k views. Great! But fake

4 days ago - 177k views. Great! But fake

5 days ago - 3.3k. OMG. He forgot to buy fake views for this video too.

You see, if you have fake subscribers and run out of money or forget to buy views for your video, the whole Internet will see your real view count and laugh about it. Just kidding. No one cares about your fake views, and bots who are your subscribers can’t laugh. But there is someone in this world who sold you all this. And he is the only winner because he got your money.

But the worst part is that one day YouTube developers will change their algorithms, and all these fake views, subscribers, likes, and comments will be removed and gone forever. And you will be left with nothing. And that guy or company who sold you all those useless fake views and subscribers will still have your money.

Was it enough to convince you? If not, you can give fake views a try and see your YouTube channel going down. And if you want it to be big and famous, please use only those services that provide views over Google Ads. For example, Prodvigate or any other you like.
