What's wrong with youtube's view counter? Videos have been frozen around 302 views for about 2 weeks now and have been stuck like that since even though they are getting thumbs up and comments and all that. I know that youtube usually does this regularly but it doesn't last nearly this long to update the views. Does anyone know what the problem is, or when the problem is going to get fixed? View freezing is normal, it allows whatever monkey at YT to make sure videos are getting real views (if a video gets a ton of views right as it comes out). YouTube is messed up right not as far as views goes, they're not counting properly to begin with. Best to let them sort it out, then find something else to "fix". There are several things people should know about youtube views, first of all, in my opinion the best place to go is right here, it's free, easy and you don't have to do a thing after a few clicks. it has earned me thousands of views daily http://www.u2bviews.com/referral/1802/ also, labelling their videos: 'tags' are only the 3rd most important component in YouTube's search results. Words in the title are 1st, and words in the description are 2nd. And ahead of all those characteristics is your YouTube username. Thus, 'tags' are really in 4th place, and as such are the least important element in any search. [Whenever you do a search, how often do you find videos at the top of the search results list with no matching words in the username, titles or descriptions? Probably never. If you ever do come across videos like that with no matches whatsoever, that's when the 'tags' are actually relevant in the search.] Thus if you're searching for videos (either your own or somebody else's), and you want them to appear at the top of search results, type the username first, and then the title of the video (or at least the most unique words of the title). If you don't want your actual username being part of the search (perhaps because people don't know it), and you want your videos near the top of search results, then make the titles and descriptions of all your videos as long as you can, using plenty of "buzz" words. (If you are fascinated by 'tags', try to include them in your titles.) As for "generic" searches, it should come as no surprise that YouTube employs the Google search engine, which has its own peculiar set of rules. Thus consider these when you label your videos: 1 -- Try not to use lots of hyphens (-), because they are considered just like minus signs, and compound words risk being totally eliminated from any search. 2 -- Avoid using many 1- or 2-letter words such as "a", "I", "at", "in", "me", "my", "no", "of", "to" or "we" because Google actually ignores those types of words, and they too will most likely be eliminated from any search. 3 -- Use quotation marks to denote phrases or words that must be together, or else YouTube treats them like separate words. For example, there is a ton of difference between just typing Qantas Airlines vs "Qantas Airlines", or typing the spirit of Australia vs "the spirit of Australia". (Check it out yourself.) but remember, as i said before the best place to go is here Nothing is wrong with it, it just takes time to update because in the past they never use to update it and the views kept crashing their servers i dont know how but i know it did Sometimes none of the answers get it just right. If so, pick "No Best Answer". Voters DO NOT get any points for voting on the No Best Answer.
