    Anyone using Youtube Jumpstart having their videos frozen? This isn't just at the 300 freeze mark. This is videos at 1,000+ views. I havent seen this since before 2009 when videos used to freeze at any number.

    Remember youtube made the change early 2009 so that videos would only freeze at 300 or so. then if a video was higher than 400, spam views simply wouldnt be added to the count so no freeze.

    Is anyone else using jumpstart getting this?

    I had already seen that post prior to posting this question. The video example in that post had already increased by 30,000 hits beyond what the user posted as the stuck zone. - I.E. jumpstart frozen, other vids not.

    here's what really happened. video views starting slowing just prior to the 20th. all videos were frozen but NOT NEARLY for 24-48 hours, more like 12-18. Most high traffic videos started moving again at that point. But many videos did not such as the jumpstart promoted videos.

    And yes. jumpstart videos have been moving again, but much slower than they were b4

    JS promoted videos seem to be moving along fine for me. No problems now, but a couple days ago there were serious issues for 48 hours or so.

    do you think that is why jumpstart is providing so many less views now than before April 20/21st.

    fyi the same thing is true for the new playinator 4.0 which was released in march and is the exact same type of system - both jumpstart and playinator are providing many loes than views since april 20/21st.

    Its like this for everything. I can send 50k views to one video in a day, just buy general traffic. It converts horrible, I did it last night and it would usually count 38k but this time it only counted 9k!! That's fuckin 1/5 of the visitors I threw at the video.... :confused:

    it appears that YT has gotten stricter to count views as legit views so views might be increasing slower now a less amount of views are counted, but views increasing still works, with YTjumpstart maybe the daily average views are gonna decrease because of this, also the more people and more videos who join it can make the views increasing slower too maybe unless jumpstart gets more servers.

    jumpstart and playinator are having difficulties because youtube changed their algorithm on april 20th. this is not a youtube problem. this is not a youtube issue. this is another rule change in the game. it is permanent. anyone waiting on a fix is never going to see one.

    For jumpstart and playinator to increase views again as they were, they need to make some additional changes. Thats it.

    The same goes for people sending paid traffic to their videos. the game has changed. Test the new algorithm as i have and you will figure out the new rules and you will get back up to the correct traffic ratios.

    I started with JumpStart views This year 2011 and got up to 38,000 views then the past month was Frozen. Some guy name Peter, from support says Google has changed their algorithm and to wait. Peter says he'll tell me when things are back up. That was approximately a week and a half ago. I don't know apparently Google's algorithm changes periodically, however my Daily Motion video has not moved either. Anyone out there got any insight on what's happening?

    More like anal. Now that I know how those fuckers work, it's in line with their business plan to keep their cash bitches always on top. Shitheads like content stealing RWJ will always dominate.

    Shit like Playnator, Viewet, Jumpstart, etc, won't work anymore.

    It's not YouTube anymore. It's CashTube. Who can bring in the biggest buxs.

    I'm not so anal.

    We can refrain from bumping year-old threads that aren't especially relevant in today's environment.

    JS always worked perfectly for me but not since YT's counter changes. Let's hope they can get it to work again and I read on their Twitter that they are working on JS3.
