One of the greatest problems facing many YouTube creators is capturing views. There are a lot of people on YouTube who would probably love their content, but all of those views are going to channels that are already popular. It’s hard to crack the top search engine rankings as a small channel.

Many YouTubers look for alternative ways to get views for their videos not to replace organic views, but to better position their videos to be seen by real viewers. Buying views or signing up for a view exchange platform are two methods some YouTubers consider, and another is bots.

Warning: be aware that increasing your view count with a bot is against YouTube’s Terms of Service and that if you get caught your video will be taken down. View exchange platforms are allowed, and buying views is a grey area, but bots are against the rules. If you still wish to learn more about bots, keep reading. If you want some safer options, scroll down to ‘Alternatives to Bots’.

What Is A YouTube View Bot?

Bots work in an automated sense just like software and they can run in the background. Bots automatically add views to your videos.

Setting up a bot can be as easy as using other pieces of software and there are lots of free tutorials on YouTube for view bots.

Why Use a YouTube View Bot?

Bots are used to create the illusion that a video is already popular in order to attract real viewers who view the existing view count as ‘social proof’ of the video’s quality. There are other ways, besides bots, bot accomplishes this but if a YouTuber is resorting to a bot it probably means they don’t have the money to buy real human views or the time to participate in a view exchange platform. The main benefit of a bot is that it is fast, easy, and usually free.

Bots can also be used to generate comments and likes for videos.

What Else Can A YouTube View Bot Do?

The most effective bots come with more features than just bypassing Captchas and generating views.

You can set up a YouTube bot to perform daily tasks and automate your workflow. An example might be ensuring that every video on your page is getting a view and comment every day. You can also use bots (or content organization platforms) to automatically share your videos across social media. This frees you up to focus on creating quality content.

Using a bot to increase your views artificially has its dangers, but it does also have the potential to kick start the organic growth of your channel. Once you start attracting real viewers and subscribers you will not need to keep relying on a bot.

Are There Risks to Using A YouTube View Bot?

Yes.

Bots are against YouTube’s TOS, especially for partners using AdSense (learn more about YouTube's partnership program here). If you are suspected of using a bot your videos can get taken down and you could lose the ability to monetize content (YouTube reviews channels now before they can monetize and it will be obvious to them if you’ve used a bot to get to the 10,000 lifetime views you need for monetization). Repeated offenses could even get you banned from YouTube, and it is much easier to lose AdSense access.

The biggest danger isn’t YouTube taking your videos down, though. So long as you don’t persist after being warned you can always recover. No, the real danger of bots is that they generate low retention views. Essentially, the views you get from a bot appear to YouTube’s algorithm as if people have clicked on your videos, but haven’t watched them. The algorithm interprets that as ‘the people who are clicking on this don’t like it, we should rank it lower down in search results’. Rather than attracting organic views, bots can actually make it very difficult for a real viewer to find your content.  

If you are going to use a bot, you need to use it smartly and sparingly in order to prevent damage to your channel.

Alternatives to Using View Bots to Increase YouTube Views

1. Organically Growing Your Channel

Using bots, or any of the services below, won't really grow your channel more quickly than the tactics like posting on a schedule, creating clickable thumbnails, or mastering SEO. There can be some perks to using them - we won't deny that there are people who have benefitted from bots through a mixture of luck and careful strategy - but in general, it is better to focus your efforts on your content and solid YouTube strategies

2. View2.be

 view2be free youtube views

View2be is a free YouTube views service that also comes with a premium option. The company will deliver a series of free subscription packages, engagement packages, and view packages. In most cases, this is a traffic exchange service (meaning you must participate by watching other people’s videos) until you get into the premium service and affiliate service. In these cases, users can advertise the services of View2be in order to get access to more views and subscriptions. The premium services are just a straight charge for a total number of views, subscribers, or other items.

3. UltraViews

UltraViewers is another traffic exchange service in which people can trade traffic in order to get more views on their own webpages or YouTube videos. This site requires you to open your browser and automatically navigate to a number of websites. Based on the number of websites that you visit, you will be rewarded with new hits to your own videos. This is a fairly simple system. There is also a lottery where you can win extra hits.

4. My Social Following

My Social Following is a source for YouTube viewers, subscribers, and likes. As a professional marketing service, the company allows for a variety of benefits such as location targeted services, fast deliveries, improvements in the ranking, and (most importantly)real viewers watching your YouTube videos in full in order to boost your retention rates and search engine rankings.

If you are truly serious about earning free views, YouTube view bots are one of many options but they do mean accepting whatever consequences YouTube might hand down.
