Although the website said that these false viewing records only account for a small part, but in fact, it will still have a big impact, mislead consumers and advertisers.
On the basis of dozens of interviews, various sales records and false viewing of the purchase transaction pressure pump, the New York Times has conducted a deep investigation of the operational model of this market space, and also inspected youTube The ability of source finishes control behavior has been tested.
Although deliberately exaggerating the number of video views is a violation of the YouTube service agreement, if we use Google to search for the purchase number and other content, you will see hundreds of websites with fast and convenient improvement of video viewing rate services, you can buy watch The quantity ranges from 500 to 5 million.
Those who have only taken a few cents of websites, and even in Google's advertising search results.
In order to test these websites, a reporter of the Times has purchased thousands of false viewing records from nine different companies.
It was found that almost all purchased viewing records were displayed in the target video in two weeks.
And this, there is a website named devumi.
According to relevant data, in the past three years, the company has successfully sold a false viewing record of 196 billion Youtube video, earning more than $ 1.
Moreover, there are many views of viewing, and now still effectively.
According to a analysis report, from 2014 to 2017, most false viewing record orders will be completed in just a few weeks.
Of course, if the quantity exceeds 1 million, it will be a little longer.
After all, there is a lot of viewing records at a short time in a short time, usually means that the authenticity of the service is not guaranteed.
Specifically, DEVUMI's customers, including a news media invested by the Russian government, "Today, Russian (RT)", an employee of the "Al jazeera English" in the Catal Government.
In addition, there is a film producer for the US conservative political group Americans for Prosperity, as well as the "New York Post".

In addition to these, there will be musicians to buy false listening records in order to make their works look more popular.
Because of the market research company like Nielsen, the music list of Billboard is the most popular 100 songs such as Billboard, will include Youtube's listening and viewing quantity into the assessment range.
Others will purchase false viewing records for their customers, using the potential promotion effects of social media to attract more people to watch the related videos.

Under the help of Devumi, her video quickly has more than 58,000 viewing records.
As for how this type of website increases the number of viewing of the target video, it is based on various real-time strategies.
Sometimes, it is an increase in automated viewing flow.
It is also time, it is unresolved to put pop-up video on the user's computer.
However, YouTube said this said that the home platform has formed a valid mechanism process to address these false traffic increases channels.
YOUBE Product Management Director Jennifer Flannery O'Connor said: "For many years, we have always been trying to actively and respond to these negative issues.
" At this stage, Youtube's monitoring system can continue to detect a video.
At the same time, the company has also established anti-fraud teams.
The team will often take the initiative to purchase false viewsRecorded in order to better understand the form of operations in these websites.
At present, this reverse monitoring system has brought better results.
Even so, Youtube faces the challenges is still very severe.
According to the company's own introduction, in 2013, the real visits on its website have been recorded, and even false viewing records generated by the machine, reaching the quantity.
As a result, some employees worry that the company's fraud monitoring system will have an impact that cannot work properly, and the false view traffic is inverted.
At that time, Blake Livingston, who is still working in Youtube fraud and abuse, said: "This problem itself is very difficult, and later the website suffered an attack, the company took some repair and countermeasures, which effectively inhibited the number of videos.
"After several years, YouTube is still struggling with false viewing records.

Although it did not disclose the number of false viewing records that intercepted every day, it also said that the company team has been working hard to control the proportion of this type of false record to the total record in 1%.
However, if you want to see from specific data, there are at least tens of millions of false records in their daily billions or even billions of new video viewings.

" The fake audience brings true Gold and Silver bought a car from relief to buy a house, Vassilev only spent a shortness of 18 months.
By the end of 2014, his website has become Google Search YouTube Video Watch Number Purchase First Show Results.
The average calculation is about 150 to 200 per day, and the amount of income per month is more than $ 30,000.
The "Times" reporter above, the order purchase 25,000 view records.
One day, it was "receiving the goods".
In this regard, Google spokesperson said these websites sold for false viewing records, which appeared in the search results, mainly because of the relevant contents of the user search.
Of course, it also admits that there is still a lot of space.
In the future, some security use warnings are provided while presenting search results to users.
Although Vassilev refuses to disclose what is your customer, it is still a lot of orders from public relations or marketing companies.
At this stage, he will complete most of its orders on their own websites by wholesale vendor SMMKings.
com operated by Sean Tamir.
Tamir is 29 years old this year, which will charge Vassilev to VassileV for every 1000 views.
You know, every 1000 views of the record, the price of Vassilev's sales is $ 13.
According to TAMIR, YouTube will change several times a year.
The last time happened this year, but in fact, it didn't have a few weeks, many of the websites were working properly.
Many suppliers said that when you update in your youTube system, they deliberately make their viewing records look more normal, and ensure that those records come from before you have real viewed records.
Among them, a supplier named Carlton E.
Bynum II will use advertisements to attract customers.
This year, he has successfully earned $ 191,000.
However, in order to appear on Google search homepage, he spends US $ 109,000 on advertising.
Its website GetLikes.
Click not only sells youTube's viewing record, but also sells the Fans of Instagram and Twitter, the number of views of Facebook and the number of SoundCloud playback.
Although Google does not allow advertisements with "Buy YouTube View Record" to appear on their own website, Bynum said that there is still one replacement method, that is, deliberately speaking the search content, in the first advertisement failure Then continue submit.
Moreover, even if Google will remove the advertisements that you want to watch records for youtube, those ads will appear after two weeks.
In fact, by selling video viewing records, Bynum is also a buyer.
His video ranking after purchasing, it is much better than the competitors.
Moreover, the effects of purchasing to watch the record will be getting bigger and bigger, can help you earn more money through more video viewing quantity.
Vassilev also said that he used to use false viewing records to promote its own website, so that everyone believes in the real view record.
From the industry category, most customers from DEVUMI come from the music industry.

Silvio Pietroluongo, vice president of Billboard: "YouTube is one of the main sources of music consumption, one of the important indicators of music trend.
" As early as 2014, the music new star Aleem Khalid hired the promotion company Crowd Surf.
But this company bought 10,000 view records in the three videos of his uninformed.
In his words: "I thought that the biggest advantage of these social media platforms is true, but now it seems that all are fake.
" For the company, youtube engineers, statisticians and data scientists have continuously optimized the ability to have these problems.
But at the same time, these issues are getting more and more difficult to completely solve it.
I know that there is a "undercover" reporter borrowed the name of the purchase.
After investigation, these websites have strengthened their own repair capabilities and slow down the speed of viewing records.
