Yesterday I was working on some Transcription work, and it had to do specifically with Youtube. Now, obviously I can't share exactly what it was about, due to the confidentiality agreement, but there was one thing that made an impression on me, and I wanted to see what you guys think. So the guy in the video basically said that he doesn't care how many Views a video has. He'll watch the video either way, no matter if it has a lot of views or just a few of them. And he also said that the Liked do matter for him. Basically, if a video has a lot of likes then he's more likely to like it himself than if a video has a few or no likes. Now, this put a smile on my face because this sort of wins the argument for those that say that you should buy or get "fake" Followers, Likes, Views, etc. Because when the real viewers land on your account, or your video, they will see that you have a lot of likes, or a big following, and then they're more likely to engage with you in some way too - by liking your video for example... What do you think? Do you stand on the side of the "whitehat" gurus who would want you to only gain traction through promotion and *cough* facebook ads *cough*, or are you open to buying/getting "fake" followers etc?
