How YouTube Views Work ?

Have you ever wondered How YouTube Views Work? I will explain the process I think how YouTube counts the views.

Every time someone watches a video it is supposed to be counted as 1 YouTube view. There may be some exceptions based on the length of time you watch the video.

At times, YouTube will remove a whole bunch of views that they think have been added by robots instead of Humans. Last year, YouTube removed Billions of views because they deemed they were the result of “BlackHat” methods. Providers such as QQTUBE and GIGAVIEWS were hit with numerous complaints from clients that had bought views through these providers.

You might wonder how YouTube Views work? How are YouTube views counted? What is considered a YouTube view?

How YouTube Views Work

 

YouTube Views Count

When a video is uploaded by a user on YouTube it is cached on different YouTube servers spread around the globe. This is done for faster response times between YouTube and its user. Every time a request is made for a video the closest server provides the video and boosts the views count in its local log. These logs are then updated at certain times and a central views log is then updated.

How YouTube Views Are Calculated

YouTube has not released the details of exactly how YouTube views are counted. It remains a secret as to how the views are counted for certain reasons. YouTube doesn’t want to give away too much details on the exact calculation because even the smallest hint of will cause people to “hack” the system and artificially boost YouTube views.

When a video has a large number of views that last for a couple of seconds after clicking the YouTube video, the views are not counted as legitimate by YouTube. The video is counted by someone who watches the video for more then 30 seconds. This is way Google Adsense works only with YouTube videos that are over 30 seconds so that the click through rates are registered.

The type and genre of video could also be a factor. YouTube also considers views from the same IP address after a 8 hour break. For example one person viewing the same YouTube video repeatedly would only generate a maximum of 5 views a day. I’m sure there are many more restrictions and rules that go into registering a view count that we might not be aware of.

 

Are my YouTube Views frozen? The Old 301 views freeze

Youtube has decided it will not freeze videos with a view count of 301 anymore. The 301 Video views freeze worked if your video received views very fast when you uploaded your video. YouTube would put a freeze on your video at 301 and would unfreeze it after it confirms that the views are real. YouTube did this to filter out fake YouTube views from robots that throw off the actual human views count. The problem started arising when video creators wouldn’t know how well their videos were doing in real time. YouTube announced on August 6 to its Twitter followers it’ll count views as they happen. As far as accuracy and robot views were concerned YouTube said it will only look back over unverified views.

 

In Conclusion, it is still a mystery how YouTube calculates exactly what a YouTube view is.

Should I Use YouTube Views Bots ?

Questions and answers about YouTube Views Bots!

YouTube Views Bots

Youtube Views Bots

Dozens of YouTube account creators have recently been accused of artificially boosting their views count with Youtube Bots. This mess started a couple of years ago when she noticed a strange issue with her YouTube account. One of the many videos that was in her account had been removed mysteriously. YouTube did not provide any notice about the removal of her video.  The account was in good standing and did not have any issues regarding previous attempts of boosting her YouTube videos. A couple of days later the same thing happened to 3 more musicians who had the same situation happen to them. We were curious to find out if these 2 instances were caused by the same issue.

YouTube Cracks Down

YouTube started sending out notices and case for appeals for YouTube video’s that were removed. The appeal notice basically stated that “Your video got removed because you tried to cheat the system, if you want to appeal this decisions please fill out this information”. This in turn caused major headaches for the big time musicians. It was of up most embarrassment to have your video taken down and a big “THIS VIDEO HAS BEEN REMOVED” image on your video. YouTube completely removed the video and if that was your only copy you were out luck. There was no other way of recovering the video.

When 500Views reached out to YouTube to get some kind of response as to what was going on with this mess we were actually quite optimistic. We had prepared a Google Doc spreadsheet with every relevant piece of information related to the problem. We included real names, user names, the name of the videos that were effected, if the user received policy notice warning. We asked YouTube if they needed any relevant information to look into the problem but YouTube said they were not interested.

YouTube told us that all of the videos that showed them from the DOCS list had been taken down because they apparently violated SECTION H of their Terms and Conditions. They were not able to tell us why some users received appeal notices and some didn’t.

After our investigating into why YouTube was taken down the video based on Fake YouTube Views we decided to help out client’s that had there videos taken down. None of the appeals that were submitted resulted in there YouTube videos being restored. YouTube was in fact certain that these individuals were buying youtube views from suppliers.  We went ahead to ask YouTube if there was any additional information we could have provided to get the video’s back on the YouTube creators accounts. Unfortunately YouTube was unable to provide us with any more details on what kind of evidence they were looking for in an appeal. The only thing they were able to provide us link’s to there policy’s.
