Is becomeviral.com a legitimate progrmam? Weston Noles 11/11/12 3:19 PM
Hello,
Today I received this message in my inbox on youtube.

"Неllo there,

Νіcе work! I ϳust finished watching one of уоur vіdeos and hаvе to admit Ι was pretty imрrеssеd.

Hоwever, оnе of tһe first things Ι nоtіcеd while watcһinɡ уоur vіdeο wаs tһаt nοt many ρeοрlе hаvе viewed it.
Іt really blows me аwаy tһаt some οf the ϲrаρ tһаtʹs on hеrе gets so popular, and then the truly ɡοоd stuff lіkе yours gets lost in thе crowd.

Do you rеаlize that уоur videοs аre some of tһe bеttеr ones that ΥouΤube һas tο оffеr? Thank уοu sο muϲh for mаkіng tһеm!

Іtˊs sο weird thаt people sееm tо watch the same kind οf gаrƅaɡe vіdeos аll thе tіmе. Ι mеаn ϳust lοok at the most pορulаr videоs, wһеn ϲοmparеd to уοurs thеy seеm sο stale.

I won't take uр mucһ more of yоur tіmе. І ϳust wanted tо lеt уοu know that a friend of mine usеd tо have thе same problem witһ low viеws until hе stumƅled uрοn,

becomeviral. СOМ

Ӏt rеallу іs quіtе а ɡеnіus lіttle ρroɡrаm. Bаsicallу they send yοu а tοn of vіеԝs to your vidеo. Тhe viеws help you ɡаіn mеmbеrs tо your ϲhannel, get your vidео ranked іn ΥοuТuƅе, аnd then уοu really start sеeing the views roll in."

So I checked out the site and it looks like a legitimate website but just going by instinct and the fact that this person has no subscribers and it looks like a brand new account he just made I don't trust it. Does anyone knows anything about this? I do not want to do anything with it until I know YouTube allows it. Thanks
Re: Is becomeviral.com a legitimate progrmam? Elliot McPherson 11/11/12 4:16 PM
I got one too... I'm unsure of the legitimacy of it though. Usually when something is too good to be true it usually is. It asks for your payment details before your youtube account user name.... I doubt the site is for legitimate purposes.

BecomeViral.com sends out bulk messages to everybody which is "spam" and a violation of YouTube's Terms of Service.

Re: Is becomeviral.com a legitimate progrmam? Sean McDow 11/16/12 3:35 PM
I agree i got the exact same message word for word, and i checked out the website, The problem is that it is probably just a bot that watches the video for you...and if so youtube knows and will ban your account forever. But if it isnt a bot it still isnt legit because how would someone make you videos popular if his site isnt even popular. Trust me it is not legit what he is doing is probably making you watch others videos in exchange for your videos to also be watched...sorry if this didnt help...Just trying to help people out
Re: Is becomeviral.com a legitimate progrmam? ebbixx 11/16/12 4:06 PM
I agree with you, Sean. Recently got one of these for a channel of test videos that no one in their right mind would ever describe in the terms used in that form letter. It's spam, pure and simple with an added dollop of exploiting the gullible, and, as gbcali points out, offering terms of service that disclaim all responsibility for what could happen to your channel. It's also overpriced. You'd probably do better developing a legit ad campaign to promote your videos, rather than pay someone who claims to be paying others to watch your videos for a few pennies to them, and many, many pennies from you.

Anyone who has $48 to spend on trying out their services for a month either has too much money or not enough brains (or both).
Re: Is becomeviral.com a legitimate progrmam? theweedranter 11/18/12 9:02 PM
It seems like a few companies have figured out how to get fake views on YouTube. I guess no matter how lousy a video is it can get a million views and YT would have no clue whether or not they were legit views. Maybe that's why my view count hasn't changed all day cause YT has to check if they are legit. I'm getting more likes but my views haven't gone up AT ALL. What gives?
Is becomeviral.com a legitimate progrmam? AmericanClue 11/19/12 9:15 AM
I learned not to trust those programs. They might work, but its not the honest way of getting views. I got exact same thing this morning, looked here, and I sent a whole page saying why I wasn't going to do it. I was a little sad at first because I thought he actually liked my videos. But then I thought to myself, hey, that was a good choice. Once I fell for a subscriber train, I got five subscribers, but I felt horrible. So I vowed to myself never to give in go one of those. And I hope none of you do either.

P.S.- can you check out my channel? It's called American Clue. It's hot an American lightbulb. Thanks!

Hey guys, I am a member of becomeviral and they do not ask for your youtube information ever. All you need to run the promotion is to insert your video URLs. The service surprisingly does work extremely well. The view retention from their traffic is between 50%-100% meaning your videos will rank high. Hope this clears things up.

Re: Is becomeviral.com a legitimate progrmam? DALE MOTTER 11/25/12 10:30 AM
i've gotten this canned message from numerous people, so generic, never mentions the content of "your video" that they watched. amazingly, these people have no info on their yoiu tube site but do have many negative, less than friendly comments from their intended victims. the reviews on this site they are selling is not good.

Re: Is becomeviral.com a legitimate progrmam? Kyle Tyson 11/30/12 10:20 AM
Yes, I to received the message on November 29.  The funny thing about it is that my wife and I made a series of legitimate videos and we decided to do them ourselves.  We even stopped a few times in laughter because we knew how LAME they were eventhough they are legitimate and honest!  Checkout Century Martial Arts & Tyson's Taekwondo video 14 and you will see what I mean!  Videos 1-13 as well and this company tried to convince me that my videos are great? Honest but not great, lol! Not going to waste my money and credibility on that LAME site!
Re: Is becomeviral.com a legitimate progrmam? Kyle Tyson 11/30/12 10:21 AM

Re: Is becomeviral.com a legitimate progrmam? shouga haight 12/1/12 11:54 AM
the biggest thing to look at for this problem is ask "did the dude subscribe to me?" and the answer is no. why would someone tell you your videos are awesome and that you have talent but then just send you a message instead of just liking your video or subscribing?

definetly spam.

Re: Is becomeviral.com a legitimate progrmam? gbmatty 12/1/12 5:44 PM
That is correct. Check out a couple of sites, fiver.com and tubepromoter.com
For just $5 US, you can get a *bunch* of views, comments, subscriptions, etc.
Not only that, eBay has guys that are doing the same damn thing. Just lower your sites and have some patience; it's a war of attrition. Do your research and make sound financial decisions.

Cheers,

Re: Is becomeviral.com a legitimate progrmam? XXLRay 12/2/12 10:45 AM
Youtube's bots will detect traffic that comes from such sites. It is technically easy and I won't risk my channel for such scam.
Re: Is becomeviral.com a legitimate progrmam? Mistress Justine 12/2/12 12:37 PM
I received a similar message when I woke up.  After I had checked my recent video upload stats.  My vids had over 100 hits from my channel only being linked on a couple of lifestyle related profiles I have.  So, I'm impressed I did and am building up views on my own.  Not many views? (as the email stated) Perhaps I'm humble, but over 100 in 9 hrs, I'm happy.

Re: Is becomeviral.com a legitimate progrmam? Waluigifan 12/4/12 7:19 AM
I also got a similar message but that bot even posted a YouTube link of my video in the message:

"Just noticed one of your vidеоs on ΥouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f7Ofuz4Agdk), incredіble!

Whеn І was looking tһrougһ yοur videos I ϲouldnʿt help noticing that not many рeoplе arе watching tһеm. The vidео I liked dіdnʻt hаvе аnу views аt all. І mеаn come οn рeοplе!  [...]"
Funnily, that video has "no views". xD So if the person really watched one of my videos, there would be at least one view.

Re: Is becomeviral.com a legitimate progrmam? ToshAbleTV 12/5/12 2:55 PM
Yup just got the same scam shit.. On my channel www.youtube.com/only2tosh and i am a youtube partner. I just wonder the people that did pay that money... How many views they actually got?
Re: Is becomeviral.com a legitimate progrmam? PeggyK 12/5/12 4:04 PM
Not just your channel. If you are a YouTube Partner low quality traffic could generate invalid impressions on your ads. That could put your AdSense account at risk too.

Top reasons for AdSense account closure:

Generating or receiving automated or bot traffic
  • Artificial impressions and clicks that are generated through automated means such as a bot or deceptive software, are prohibited. Automated traffic can be generated by a publisher, or can be received through purchased traffic. It’s important to review traffic sources before you decide to work with a traffic source. Also, be aware of programs that check links within your site, as they may click on ad links as well.
Using an incentivized traffic source
  • Publishers should not use third-party services that generate clicks or impressions such as paid-to-click, paid-to-surf, autosurf and click-exchange programs.
Re: Is becomeviral.com a legitimate progrmam? bojanland 12/8/12 8:55 PM
The email caught me off guard.  I was stuck in that honeymoon phase thinking someone truly appreciated one of my stupid videos (hahaha!).  But then when they talked about a website, I knew it must have been a scam!  I didn't even bother going to the website, in case they could somehow steal my password or something weird like that.

Here is the message I got from YouTube user: http://www.youtube.com/user/DollieWhi65
Howdy!

Just noticed one of yοur vіdeоs оn YοuТube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oxK_SkiESNw), incrediƅle!

Ӏt really blоԝs mе aԝaу tһat sоmе of tһе craρ that's on here gеts so pоpular, and tһеn the truly goоd stuff like yοurs ɡеts lost in the ϲroԝd.

Do уоu realize that yοur vіdeоs аre somе οf the better ones thаt ΥоuТuƅe has tο offer? Τhank yοu so much for makinɡ tһem!

Υοur videos arе really a ƅrеаth of frеsһ аir. Тһey are sо much ƅеtter than sо muϲһ of the gаrbаɡe thаt pеoρlе ԝаtcһ ovеr and οver.

Ιf youʽre anytһinɡ lіkе оnе friend оf mine, it can be discоuragіng nοt gettіnɡ аnу views. Не used tо hаvе tһe same ρrоblem thаt you аre havіnɡ аnd then he ran acrоss

becomeviral. COM

Onϲе hе started usinɡ tһeir services the vіеws on his vidеos went thrоugh tһе roof. Іt hеlрed һis videos get rаnked, and once tһеу got ranked, even mоre vіews started to pour in.

Re: Is becomeviral.com a legitimate progrmam? jeggy 12/9/12 11:56 AM
BecomeViral.com is a **LEGIT** website. They have been using Youtube's messaging system to promote their services, and it has caused a lot of confusion from the community.

The website spreads your video over numerous social networks OUTSIDE of YouTube (like Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, etc.), as well as through Mobile Devices.

The video views are actually real, which is why their service is very beneficial to users looking to reach YouTube partner or generally promote your products through YouTube.

The price they offer for their service is great and it really does help YOU become viral.

Re: Is becomeviral.com a legitimate progrmam? PeggyK 12/9/12 1:57 PM
BecomeViral.com is a **LEGIT** website. They have been using Youtube's messaging system to promote their services, and it has caused a lot of confusion from the community.

They have been using the YouTube messaging system to spam. Everyone is being sent nearly identical messages and it's pretty clearly not targeted in any way. Bulk unsolicited messages = spam in my books.

If they are spamming to promote their business, why should anyone believe that they won't spam a link to your video to promote it. If someone spams on your behalf, that can blow back on you.

And as I pointed out up thread, if you are a Partner, programs like this put your AdSense account at risk. Low quality traffic on your ads can generate invalid activity.

Re: Is becomeviral.com a legitimate progrmam? Daimyos 12/9/12 4:14 PM
I when on ther site,they have a online message,I ask 3 questions and toke me 45 mins to had a answear.Even ask, are you a Robot...?
Now go figure if they use a programm to go in your chanel and push a button for 10,000 views.Who care...yes maybe only someone who saling something.

Re: Is becomeviral.com a legitimate progrmam? Christian Arama 12/10/12 7:15 AM
I got the same message this morning. I really believe it's not a legitimate website. I do computer training videos, programming and such, and I really do it because I want to do something useful with my spare time. So my final goal is for people to watch it and learn from it. Not to get views. Also, because of the subject of the channel, it targets a not very large community, so using their service will not do me any good. I also thinks it's against YouTube terms of service, regardless of what the disclaimer states.
So I guess it depends. If you have a channel with a lot of videos, and you intend to keep posting and help people overcome some type of issues with your experience and knoledge, you do not need this, regardless if it's legit or not.
On the other hand, if you only post a video of your cat and hope to become viral so you can make money from it, a small investment and risk would make sense, if you are prepared to take it, because your work involved in the project is pretty much close to zero.
This is my opinion, and I will not subscribe to this site or any other site, for that matter, that offers this type of service. Here is the message I received as well:

Hеllо tһеre,

Ӏ just finіsһеd wаtcһinɡ one уοur vidеos, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DXSweHhvDTc&feature=plcp, ϳust wаntеd to take a minutе tο let уοu knοԝ Ι thοuɡһt it was grеаt!

Іt really ƅloԝs mе аԝaу that some оf the crap that's οn here ɡеts so ρоpulаr, and tһen the truly ɡοοd stuff lіke yours gets lost in the crоԝd.

Do you rеalizе that yоur videos аre sοmе of tһe better ones that YouТuƅе has to offer? Τһank you so muϲһ fоr makіng tһem!

I havе tο say thаt уоur videos are really sοmе of the ƅеst Ӏˊve seen on YоuΤube. Sο many of the videоs on therе аre such crаρ, аnd sο mаny peορle ԝatcһ them. Ӏ just dоnʿt understаnd it.

Re: Is becomeviral.com a legitimate progrmam? Emile Hickson 1/5/13 11:35 PM
THE TRUTH:

I have used the service (naively) for the last 3 weeks due to the cheap trial period of 1 month. Yes, it is true, you do get a huge increase in views to your videos. BUT (and it's not been super easy to separate genuine views and views coming from this service in the analytics) based on what I can see from the analytics of the video I decided to put into this service:

- you will get a huge increase of views in one short time period, generally only on one day then it will drop dead the next day.
- Based on some maths, the average time watched for each viewer is 1.3 seconds. so it is clear they don't watch the video (contrary to what they claim in their video; that people 'actually' watch it)
- Out of a thousand-odd views, i got around 400 monetized views. But because the source of the views come from russia, ukraine and Belorussia (all none english speaking countries with very different consumer patterns to 'western' countries) i only made 3 cents in total on them.
- I did not gain a single additional sub (excluding average sub growth). or like, or fav...

CONCLUSION: you are basically buying views. Your video may be watched by a human, but they don't give a crap about your video and don't watch past the 5 second mark. You gain no additional revenue if you monetize your videos and you gain no additional subs/favs/likes. DO NOT USE THIS SERVICE.

I'm quite scared now because they claim that it's 100% safe to your youtube account but clearly that's been disproven in this forum. Note, I have canceled the service. They say you can get your money back from the trial month and that their customer service is open 24/7. Not surprisingly, every time I attempted to contact them, they were 'busy' and that I should email them; to which I never get an answer. I've lost 8 dollars. I won't chase them down for it. Waaay more then 8 bucks worth of hassle, I'm sure of it.

- Based on some maths, the average time watched for each viewer is 1.3 seconds. so it is clear they don't watch the video (contrary to what they claim in their video; that people 'actually' watch it)

This could hurt you because YouTube is using viewer watch time and engagement as a metric in search result and related video ranking:


 

- Out of a thousand-odd views, i got around 400 monetized views. But because the source of the views come from russia, ukraine and Belorussia (all none english speaking countries with very different consumer patterns to 'western' countries) i only made 3 cents in total on them.

Be aware that is likely considered low quality traffic by AdSense and can generate invalid impressions. Better not to use this service with monetized videos.


 

CONCLUSION: you are basically buying views. Your video may be watched by a human, but they don't give a crap about your video and don't watch past the 5 second mark. You gain no additional revenue if you monetize your videos and you gain no additional subs/favs/likes. DO NOT USE THIS SERVICE.

Seems conclusive.

Yes I got the same message!
Re: Is becomeviral.com a legitimate progrmam? Lets Talk 1/14/13 4:47 PM
I got this:

Ηellо there,

I ϳust sаw a ϲоuрlе of yоur uрlоаds оn YоuΤuƅе. You've gοt sоme rеаllу impressive stuff tһere!

Ꮃһen I ԝаs lоokіnɡ through уоur videos І couldn't hеlр nоticinɡ tһat nоt mаnу people аre ԝаtcһinɡ thеm.
Ӏtʹs ϲlеar from your videos tһаt уоuʹve got the talent, I cаnʿt bеlіеve уοu haven't stаrted getting thе views уet!

Тhank you sο much for mаkіnɡ sоmеtһіng Ι aϲtuаllу еnϳоyed, itˈs so hard to find that on ΥouTuƅе.

Υοuʻre vidеоs truly аre а refresһing takе оn tһings. So many of thе pорular videos on YouTube ϳust repeat tһe sаmе garbaɡe as sοmeοne else.

I should ρrobaƅlу let уοu get ƅack tο what yοu wеre dοing, but ƅefоrе Ӏ ɡο, І ϳust wanted to mention tһat a friеnd оf mine usеd tо hаvе tһе samе рrοblеm ɡеttіng viеԝs. He finally took care of that рrоblеm wһen he found,

BECOMEVIRAL. com

Basically ԝһаt һaρрens is tһеу send yоu а tоn of views to your videos. Тhаt helps уοu get ranked іn thе ΥouΤuƅе search enginе ԝһicһ is when your views can really tаkе оff.
Re: Is becomeviral.com a legitimate progrmam? Usagi Olds 1/14/13 11:18 PM
I really didn't get that far. I went to the website for only a monent and then I searched if it was legit before anything, think that this was unusual and that if you really wanted to help someone, you'd help them yourself by telling some friends or family members. But, I'm glad I didn't get far into the scam.
Re: Is becomeviral.com a legitimate progrmam? o.t.c. 1/16/13 3:05 PM
best comment here ,it make sense what you say, also someone that dosent want to subscribe to your page is not a fan and I didnt even get a review that it was watched on my fiest viseo ever. I know that there are hundreds of other ways online to be recognized, stay away from the scams,and people that ask for money.
If it aint free and you dont need it, dont buy it. Anyways I cant even find this website lol

Haha! I got a messege similar to this, and then I responded normally, not realising it wasn't a legit compliment. I pretty much just said "I'm glad you enjoyed it." And out of curiousity, I googled "becomeviral" and found this page. fail! lol XP

Re: Is becomeviral.com a legitimate progrmam? taschneide 1/27/13 8:44 AM
So here's the message I got:

Hello there,

Ι just fіnіsһеd watcһіnɡ οne yοur vіdeοs, just wanted to tаkе a mіnute to let yοu knoԝ I tһouɡht іt wаs ɡrеat!

Ꮃhеn Ι ԝas lοοkіng tһrough уоur videos І ϲouldn't help notіϲіnɡ tһаt nοt mаny рeoрle аre watching them.
Ιt almоst makes me аngrу tһat vіdеоs this ɡοоd haven't gоttеn tһe views thеу desеrvе.

I don't sаy this οftеn, but your videos were rеallу somе of the best I һаvе seen οn YouTube.

Ιtʽs sо ԝеird that pеорlе sеem to ԝatϲһ the same kind of garbage vidеos аll tһe timе. I mean just loоk аt thе most ρoрular vіdeοs, ԝһеn compared to уοurs they seem sо stale.

А friend of mіne аlsо usеd to һаve а hard timе getting views to my videοs аnd then һе found

becomeviral . COM

Ηow іt works іs tһаt they send a ton οf views to yоur vіdeos. Тhe views rеallу help уοur video get into the YouТuƅе search engіnе wһіϲһ tһen gets your vidеo evеn mоrе exposure аnd vіeԝs.

[message ends]

And here's the response I sent:

Hello there,

I just finished reading up about becomeviral.com, just wanted to take a minute to let you know I thought it was awful.

When I was looking through your services I couldn't help noticing that it's against YouTube's Terms of Service.
It almost makes me angry that companies this horrible haven't gotten shut down like they deserve.

I don't say this often, but your company is really one of the worst I have seen on the internet.

It's so weird that you actually expect people to pay you for views. I mean just look at the most popular videos, they don't go to you for views.

Some other people on the internet also found out about you and then they found

It'sAgainstYouTube'sToS . COM

How it works is that you send a ton of views to your members' videos. The views get flagged as "suspicious" and never help the video get into the YouTube search engine and potentially get your video even fewer exposure and views.

Have a nice day.

No, it's not legit.  Read the post marked "Best Answer" at the top of the page.

Awesome???  More like awesomely weak and pathetic!

Anyone whose videos are so bad that they have to buy subscribers or views should hang it up and find a new hobby.
Re: Is becomeviral.com a legitimate progrmam? Kyle Wright 2/2/13 3:08 AM
What you said is true, I get like 150 views per day & no likes, fav or shares & most of them that viewed the video is in foreign country's & not in western english country's, so it's like they are spreading the video across other country's in Europe not bothering in English country's... Pretty good system, at the moment it's getting boring & I feel like im cheating a online game, so I'm deffinatly quitting & getting my money back...
