Youtube marketing can be tricky. To really get a lot of views, many people make hundreds, even thousands of friend requests within Youtube, subscribe to multiple channels, or use outsourcers or bots to work it for them.
The problem is, it’s easy to get your account suspended! Youtube does allow automation, and aggressive “friending,” but here’s the current limits (Thanks to TubeToolbox for providing this data check out their service, it’s really cool):
Friend Requests: Up to 660 Per Day (28 Per Hour)
Messages Sent: 360 per day (15 Per Hour)
Share Video: 576 Per Day (24 Per Hour)
Post Comment On Videos: 360 Per Day (15 Per Hour)
Subscribe To Channels: 575 Per Day (24 Per Hour)
Basically, Youtube is protecting itself from bots making too many calls to their server, and trying to weed out spammers. These limits are what they think an actual human being could reasonably accomplish in a day. So bots ARE allowed, but they have to act at about the same speed of a human, kapiche?
