YouTube Comments are they Spam Scam?

I started my YouTube page on 31 May 2019 and have so far seen quite a bit of growth etc.....

My concern is that in the pat 24 hours or so, I have received about 20 comments and they appear to be the same 5 comments copied and pasted.

There have also been about 3,690 views since publishing and about 500 new views daily for the past few days .....

Are the comments spam, scam, people trying to gain exposure on a rising video or something else?

Thank you friends for sharing your ideas, experience etc.....

I got a few of them recently, when i looked at the comments, there were URLs hidden within them.. a little bit of good old backlink mining. I removed them and send a message to the site owner - heard nothing back...

I would leave them then to be honest - they are good SEO juice. The only reasin I didn't leave mine was because the sites were dodgy (and not for young eyes).

I am constantly deleting spam comments from YT. I think folks have software's to seek out video's popular and rising that do auto commenting etc.
Youtube do a pretty reasonable job at holding them in for review and I guess it is a part of our housekeeping chores if we want to keep it clean....

Sounds spammy to me, because I don't understand why a person would have a need to do that.

I suppose it would depend on whether the comments pertained to your video or not.

I know my Wordpress spam filter catches lots of spam comments, typically loaded with links, every single day.

I would assume the same thing happens just as much, if not more, on YouTube since I share a lot of YouTube videos on my website.

They aren't sharing any links Aaron ....... Are they hoping that others will click on their image and go to their youTube page?
