I’d like to think that hard work and quality content are the keys to success on YouTube. But we’ve all seen those bad, useless videos that have more views in a week than most of us will see in a year. Sure, bad videos do catch on. Sometimes it’s because they’re so bad and sometimes because a celeb took pity and gave a young tuber a boost. In both of those cases, the video may not deserve the attention but they got their views organically and honestly.
The guy who pays a third-party service to inflate his views – not so much and YouTube is cracking down.
