There services that let you pay to get a certain number of views to your YouTube videos, but pretty much all of them violate YouTube’s terms of service. Don’t use them!

YouTube recently removed videos from three big record companies: Universal, Sony/BMG, and RCA Records. Combined, they’ve lost 2 billion views! YouTube doesn’t care how big you are, how influential you are, or how much money you bring to the table — if you’re gaming the view count of your videos, they will be removed.

What’s interesting here is how common it appears black hat view gaming is. Even the big guys like this are getting caught doing it.
