My views aren't updating, anyone else experiencing this problem? janchi54 5/2/12 5:50 AM
I hope we're not going to have a repeat of December through January again, or what happened in July of 2011.

Same for me.

Same here! None of my views have updated in 2 days. Hopefully Google will fix this soon!

I dont understand what happened i checked the amount of views i hate yesterday and it says about a little over 100 hundred. Today so far has been 80. Might be a glitch

Thanks folks for letting me know.  Being that Google is very slow to respond to fixing problems with view counts, I hope we can keep this thread alive if the problem continues.   Last time, it took them a month to fix it, and we were persistent about commenting if the problem wasn't fixed.   Hopefully, it's just a temporary thing.   :)

I'm having the same issue, two days now. I really hope it gets fixed soon. I'm pretty much obsessing over it.

PS, what happened in December through January and in July? and For how long? (I just recently joined)
Re: My views aren't updating, anyone else experiencing this problem? TheDynaMick 5/2/12 9:08 AM
Yes, I can confirm this. Also here no updates since 2 days. In other words: view count frozen.
As always an official statement which gives us some idea about the situation would be highly appreciated. Indeed my personal impression is that there was no official YT statement in the forum anymore since several weeks (though there are various bugs, glitches etc. reported here).

Glad you posted this, I was just coming here to say the same.  I have been normally getting about 1500+ views across my whole channel and starting a couple days ago it dropped to about 50.  Analytics seems to be reporting correct numbers, but I want to verify that this evening.  My numbers for Apr30 seem to be correct.  I really wish YouTube/Google was better at communicating information to the masses on these issues, seeing as how YouTube has a pretty solid track record for delayed and otherwise deviated metrics recently.

Come on YouTube, you have a problem. My view count has stalled also. In the past two days it has dropped about 7,500 views each day.

Is there no tech support here?

Re: My views aren't updating, anyone else experiencing this problem? SporkyRomano 5/2/12 9:52 AM
I just checked my analytics and I'm not sure it's even correct, at least, I dont think it's current. I heard that YT puts a freeze on your view count at around 300 views (per video) as a policy. Has anyone heard of this before? https://www.youtube.com/user/SporkyRomano?feature=mhee
Re: My views aren't updating, anyone else experiencing this problem? Pixel-Freak 5/2/12 10:06 AM
Analytics is up between 12-36 hours after a day finishes.  So as of today your analytics should be complete for through April 30th.  Mine is correct, or close enough to be considered correct.

As for the 300 count that's to avoid people fluffing their numbers by gathering friends and refreshing on the videos.  At 300 all the views are analyzed to check for duplicates (like quick refreshes) and they may stay there until you have 300 legit views.  Thereafter views will update slightly slower because each one is being analyzed as per if it's a real view or just someone watching it over and over.

Sporky Romano, to answer your question,  back in December 2011 through January 2012, Youtube views were frozen and would not update for about a month.  There were lots of frustrated people posting about it here.  It also happened in July of 2011.
Re: My views aren't updating, anyone else experiencing this problem? janchi54 5/2/12 1:17 PM
I do agree we need some tech support to make some statments here.  My views have not budged for two days now.  

btw, my ID is janchi54, but it looks like it's showing up as 'me' for now.  I did click that to show up on my ID, but it hasn't yet.  :)

My channel views count is frozen since march 3. i wrote to youtube via "reporting a bug" and was told they were sending my message to google but so far they haven't fix the problem.
Re: My views aren't updating, anyone else experiencing this problem? worlddan 5/3/12 7:21 PM
The numbers under 'video manager' are updating but the numbers under 'analysis' are going backward...I keep losing viewers. Right now the discrepancy is more than 10%. So the system is broken again, who knows why.  
Re: My views aren't updating, anyone else experiencing this problem? Nuplex 5/3/12 8:57 PM
Mine aren't  either. I'm far from the 300 view mark and I have more comments than I do have views in fact I won't be in embarrassed I have only 2 views because I'm just starting out but I have for 5 comments why isn't it updating? usually it updates almost immediately but this time I hasnt it updated for hours. I'd wait longer but it's just kinda weird.
Re: My views aren't updating, anyone else experiencing this problem? Nuplex 5/3/12 9:39 PM
My other videos are also updating fine, just one video isn't. it bothers me alot.
Re: My views aren't updating, anyone else experiencing this problem? hiveship 5/4/12 9:19 AM
My channel views are simply gone for some time now..i think youtube doesnt count them anymore..and i really would like to have that feature back on my account..
Re: My views aren't updating, anyone else experiencing this problem? hiveship 5/4/12 9:21 AM
The count on my total views has gone up but still the count on the individual videos isnt correct till now..
Re: My views aren't updating, anyone else experiencing this problem? janchi54 5/5/12 6:28 AM
Bumping this thread up again.   My view counts have barely moved for the last two days again.  They updated for one day, and now they're messed up again.  
Re: My views aren't updating, anyone else experiencing this problem? janchi54 5/5/12 6:32 AM
You know, it's really sad.  It was bad enough that I'm losing subs (when I get about 3 subs a day, but it's not reflected in the total) and now our views aren't updating.  And they don't care it appears, otherwise a Google employee would have checked in and told us they are working on the problem.

There's an active link about subscriber losses that are offsetting subscriber gains.

Re: My views aren't updating, anyone else experiencing this problem? hiveship 5/5/12 8:27 AM
My total video views have gone up now, stillnit sure if the individual video counts are right now..
Re: My views aren't updating, anyone else experiencing this problem? hiveship 5/5/12 8:29 AM
I have something going too, i get notifications of new subbers , the number goes up and then the next day the number of subbers has gone down ..i dont check every single subber that would cost me hours to check but still its weird that suddenly i am losing a lot of them.
