YG's Trick to increase VIEWS for BLACKPINK's MVs in Youtube!


To avoid getting the views "frozen or getting overlapped views filtered out" , Blackpink's music videos are posted under "People & Blog " category instead of "Music" category.


Currently, the music videos with low views are under "People&Blog" category and those with more views have switched to "Music" category.


This is the major reason why their views are increasing drastically and also have very few freezes and deduction.


This trick was highly condemned by various netizens who also pointed out that this was the media-play done by YG for them to enter American Market.


But unfortunately , their views are majorly from SouthEast Asian countries such as Thailand and Indonesia.

This creates doubt as to if BlackPink can succeed in the Western Music Industry and is also believed that if they get caught for manipulation,it would bring them down only to be called as cheaters.


It is also reported that music groups with high views such as BTS, TWICE , EXO and so on have their videos under "Music" category only .

"Blackpink's music videos are posted under "People & Blog " category instead of "Music" category." --> I just checked the most viewed MV from the channel - ‘뚜두뚜두 (DDU-DU DDU-DU)’ -> is posted under category MUSIC.. so not all videos use "strange" category

"Currently, the music videos with low views are under "People&Blog" category and those with more views have switched to "Music" category." -> Oh.. so not all videos... now we talk about switching categories


Just report these videos if You think they breaks any YT rules - or go write to owners of your favorite channel about it - maybe they will start doing similar alleged "tricks" if that helps - kpop world is so hungry with all these views so if you discovered the new way to increase views they will be so thankful for this :P


EDIT:

For all people who trying to defend author of this article:

You can see snapshot made using site web#archive#org (image below) that DDU_DU DDu-DU for example was posted as MUSIC from beginning not as "People & Blog "

- so what the author said that they first of all they use other category (at the beginning) then switches to MUSIC after some time - is definitely not true -> copy link of picture above and open in new tab to make it more readable (here resized by AKP website)


For people who don't know web#archive#org (Internet Archive - Wayback Machine) is nice place where you can check how the site looked in the past..

Next time before you want post similar article - do not use own speculation, etc. - who know if any agencies will not sue you for slanders

But in the end views don't matter the groups who had most views disbanded quickly though 2ne1 did not last as long as Girls generation who are still together and release music...Why are people so obsessed with views. For example EXO AND BTS best songs are the ones with the least views. IDOL is BTS worst song but most viewed even war of hormones with its sexist lyrics is better...Views don't mean better music CLC,BTOB other groups have less views like 10M only and their songs are bops some better than BTS and EXO. EXOs music is better than BTS in my opinion but has less views.Recrds dont stay someone is gonna break them...KPOP fans are fans of records and views not kpop. Listening to only 3 most popular groups and preaching they are the best is so wrong some unknown artists to internatinal fans have even better music than EXO,BTS,BP. With so much good music it is impossible to rank them, They are all the best to me. Ranking music and artists by views is stupid. The fans who celebrate these records are the first ones to leave the fandoom once their fave cannot get records anymore...Thats how kpop goes making records and views important will lead only to dissapointment because they never last.

YouTube is the way most K-pop groups become successful internationally even older groups like Girls' Generation and 2NE1 found international success on YouTube. The more views the more publicity a group gets and I have no doubt that YouTube has been a huge factor in Blackpink's runaway success.

I agree, I really hate that some people put down other groups and act like all other groups and artists are nugu and flops just because they are not the best selling artists, do they really like their favs or only join the fandom because they wanna feel the superiority for being in largest fandoms of most popular artists? Those are not true fans, when the new era of idols come, they'll ditch their favs in an instant and switch to next most popular artists.

Of course this makes little sense because Stay is an old song with over 100 million views which is "still" under the People & Blogs category, why hasn't it been switched to Music? And where is the proof that DDU-DU DDU-DU was originally under the People & Blogs category? What about the fact that Jennie's Solo is under the Music category and has less views than Stay? It seems to me that there old MV's were under People & Blogs and their new MV's are under Music. None of which explain's Blackpink's runaway success this year?

What a load of conspiracy theory.


I’m pretty sure Youtube’s algorithms are not based on category, but based on velocity. How this creates more views makes no sense either, since all views are recorded anyway. The so called “freezing” fans are complaining about doesn’t actually have an effect on the recording of views. That’s all front end based, as their database servers record the data.


You have to realize there are hundreds of millions of database transactions going on concurrently on the site, therefore the servers need to process the data in batches and not in realtime. Pretty sure all of the data is recorded in arrays or something else and then processed in bulk batches, to not hit the database for every single transaction.


TLDR: Basically, all views are recorded and freezing doesn’t have an effect on the total view count, it’s just the way they process database entries. The category switch also doesn’t have any effect.

BP is doing very well in YT and digitally. However, the same success does not reflect in their physical albums sales, concert ticket sales and also in voting. If Blink is such a big fandom, why the physical album sales hasn't reach 500k yet? Shouldn't they have like 40k concert goers? Why didn't BP win inkisang/popularity awards (where BTS, EXO and WannaOne fans are the ones dominating in voting)? Those were the questions on why people are being skeptical on BP YT views...are those views real? People doubting on how the views of DDDD manage to increase very fast and steadily until today. For me personally, I do think that the views are real. Because I know how blinks are diligently streaming those videos and they are also one big amazing fandom. For blink, YT view means everything and is a measure of BP achievements. They don't care much about physical albums or voting. They aim to reach 1Billion YT views and I applaud their effort for that. If they are happy with what they are doing, we shouldn’t be belittling their dedication. I don't hate BP, in fact I love many of their songs. To be specific, I like teddy's unique music. I do watch other groups' mvs too but I only stream BTS'.

And as for army, our aim is not just to have high YT views but also for BTS to win many awards, getting high physical and digital album sales plus to hold many concerts. So Army are busy, not just streaming in YT, spotify and Apple music but also voting in various awards. As an army, I stream BTS YT mvs very diligently EVERYDAY. To be exact, BTS has 10 YT mvs with views more than 250 million, so army all over the world are streaming these 10 mvs. Of course, it makes sense that BP YT view increases much faster than BTS as we stream 10 mvs while Blink focuses on 4 mvs. To be honest, I don't mind if one day BP's mvs have more views than BTS. Because I know, blinks stream YT more than army. PEACE!

How about we talk about all the bots, tricks and so on that other fandom uses? Oh, that's not an article.


PD: It is not illegal to post a video in another category. Use bots if it is. And in fact, DDDD is posted in the music category and Stay, which has the least views of all BP videos, is the one in the "People and Blogs" category. Next.

This is funny because youtube views are literally the only thing blackpink has. Their fans think they’re the best group in the world and call other ggs flops... but bp barely have any album sales and struggle to sell their tickets?? LMFao why don’t blinks buy bps album? They only have one mini album so i’m pretty sure its not THAT expensive for them. When bp get album sales like snsd/twice/gfriend then we can talk!


Surely with their hundreds of millions of yt views, their albums sales should be way more than 250-300k. At least with Exo, BTS and Twice, they have similar youtube views but they sell sooo many albums. Especially BTS and Exo. Even NCT with poor youtube views sold more albums than blackpink LOL. For BP being a top tier group hyped up so much that is very poor.

Highly disagree with everything you just stated. I'm a bp fan and I think it's very entitled of you to assume that we think 'bp is the best and everyone else is a flop.' I love bp songs but I also love other girl groups songs (red velvet, 2ne1, snsd, gfriend, dreamcatcher ect..) Also, about the album sales, I think you need to research a little more as I did a very quick search of bp album sales and all it came up with was how high their sales were. Plus, those groups you mentioned have put out way more songs, albums and eps so of course their sales are going to be higher than a girl group with "one mini album" (which is false).

I’m not talking about all their albums sales put together, i’m talking about their latest album for each group. And yes blackpink have one mini album only. Japanese compilation albums are not relevent here. Blackpink sold around 250-300k of their only mini album square up. I bet you’re one of those fans that stream but don’t bother to actually support them and give them album sales lmao.

Even though we says views don't matter, there are many ways a group can get views you know (through their songs being adds). Alot of fans have diff platforms where they stream and this depends on availability, popularity and usage of certain streaming services in various countries. I can say a group is successful when they do well in all categories. They sell albums, they are popular, well liked, strong digitals, YT views, critical acclaims, awards etc. Like Exo doesn't have that many YT MV streams but their fans showcase in sales and that values much more. We fans feel we should stream if we can't buy albums as a way to give back to the idols so I don't think views are all a waste but they don't count much either. BTS has a lot of views who YG keeps dragging in his mediaplay "saying BP surpassed this and that of BTS everytime", but blackpink doesn't sell and thats a fact. So, yes I like BP music but I can't say they can be compared to many of the mega groups even if they surpass views here n there.

DDDD and Solo and the DDDD dance practice were never categorized as People and Blogs and that charge is entirely fabricated, as is the claim that view freezing changes depending on the view category. The only thing it influences is which feeds you appear on. God, this site is run by some serious morons.

I'm not a huge Blackpink fan, but it's obvious they are the queens of YouTube. Their view count has (hardly) anything to do with this kind of manipulation. Their songs appeal to international audiences more than other groups who are more distinctly "Asian" in their sound, and their music doesn't get old with multiple repeats.
