    I was kinda curious about some of my videos being stuck at 301 views for over a year even after using services to get views and still stuck at 301.What I did was made a few videos and manually inflated the views myself in my browser until I hit 301 views.What I learned was by doing this,your video will be stuck at 301 forever.This was on 3 different accounts.

    On those same accounts I have other videos I didn't inflate the views and I get real views no problems.

    I took one of my videos that was stuck at 301 views for over a year and just blasted it with views and took note of it's serp position.After a day I saw positive serp movement.3 days later more positive serp movement.Not alot,but positive movement.

    I'm starting to think that the Youtube view count that you see under your video is just a visual metric capped off by Youtube to make spammers think their video is dead in the water.If you get serp movement out of a video thats stuck at 301 forever,then I think the view count don't mean shit if you want to increase your serp position.

    Just test a stuck video for yourself and see if you get positive movement.It won't hurt nothing to try because that video is just dead in the water anyway.

    If you use quality views you won't get stuck at 301 anyway.

    I've never had this problem.

    This is for people who are stuck.The question is everywhere about 301 views.And it's to show that the view count you see does not matter.

    All views stuck on 301, just give it more HR views and it will pass :)

    Your views quality is bad and therefore you stuck at 301

    Still, back in 2010/2011 (when YouTube based ratings on 'stars') they still had frozen views.
    They wouldn't be necessarily be at 301 though, around 299-312 usually.
    Retention views didn't exist back then and analytics wouldn't give you as much info as it does now. So if they wanted to stop spammers, pretty sure it would be ineffective.

    I don't think quality has anything to do with it, it largely depends on the amount of views to a new video. YouTube simply pause the views at 301 to verify they're legitimate views. I've had it happen to around 2/3 of my videos. Just continue to send high quality, high retention views and your view counter will start going up again soon (around 4-5 days, usually).

    I have never had this problem either, but it's interesting.
