NEW YORK — The music industry has always been about competition and dominance. With the Billboard charts becoming more harder to secure a spot position. The music industry has recently incorporated YouTube views into its charting system, which makes it easier to rank popular singles.

This recent YouTube views formula has made charting new singles more simpler because all the system has to do is scan the latest  online plays. Its a big step that Billboard took when it changed its algorithm for its singles charting. This means that you can now chart on the Billboard Hot 100 with only YouTube views and Spotify plays.

This makes it easier for internet breakthrough artists to enter the Billboard charts and receive airplay. Some singles that broke into the Billboard charts because of this new algorithm are “Harlem Shake”, “Gangnam Style”, “Chinese Food”, “Hot Ni**a” and “#Selfie”. All these successful singles have one thing in common, they have a strong YouTube, Facebook and blog presence.

This is all it takes for a single that top the Billboard charts now a days. Billboard is making it easier for any musician with a good online following to have a chance to top any chart system. The Heat seekers chart system is a more easier system to chart compared to the Hot 100. Artists like J-Dash, Jake Miller and Megan Nicole have all topped this chart with online followings.

For any artists that’s looking to take their career to the next level, its important to increase your sales and plays. Spotify is a good site where your music needs to be listened. Your YouTube videos should be receiving a massive amount of views. Sites such as Facebook, Tumblr, Reddit & 9Gag are known for making unpopular videos go viral overnight.

This can cause a Billboard chart entry or a Twitter trending chart entry. Whatever chart you enter, just know that social media now counts more than ever before.

Its becoming more apparent that social media has taken over the internet. With social media giants like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, it is becoming easier for us to connect with each other. Content is also easier to pass around and upload with the help of another social media giant known as YouTube.

YouTube has dominated the online video industry on the web and is the second largest search engine. Right behind Google, YouTube has a huge reputation for its video content. It is very apparent that with the billions of videos that get uploaded a week on YouTube, the amount of audience interaction that it has is very significant. Especially when it comes to advertising and marketing.

Since the start of the YouTube industry, the ability to Buy YouTube views for a price has been available. It is a marketing strategy that tons of celebrities, companies, actors, brands and even politicians have done. Its no secret that almost everyone buys YouTube views. The question that many people ask is, is it effective to Buy YouTube views?

The answer is, Yes and no.

The reason why its yes and no is because it depends on what your goals are as a video user. If your goal is to gain more exposure, popularity and increase a subscriber base the right way, then yes. If your goal is just to raise your view counter and wait for your fans to magically start pouring, then you’re better off sharing your content like everyone else who only gain 50 views.

Just like any social media marketing services, your YouTube views should be an indicator of how successful you have marketed or promoted your content. Having a high view count should be an advantage to make your video even bigger, instead of it being the final landing pod. The people who use these jumpstarted views to their advantage, end up becoming consistently viral and achieving phenomenal things on YouTube.

It all depends on what your goals are and how hungry you want to be successful.
