Does Youtubes view counting seem to be back in order for everyone these days?

    view count is very very instable at this moment, im not sure if its an youtube change on their system but i doubt because i see tons of youtube top partners on most watched sections that are being affected, basicly lastest shane video got 400.000 views in 4+ days, he usualy gets that in half a day.
    Same with fpsrussia, he is also at the 600.000 views for 2+ days, when in one day around he gets 900.000 / 1.000.000 views. (on hes insight stats if you click it you see this: 04/08/2011 First view from a mobile device - 1
    )
    Nigahiga lastest video seems to be also affected, and so on.


    The only partner that i see that is not being affected by this is Ray william jonhson ( lol ), yea he seems the only guy i saw that is not having problems on the view counter.
    The views on my test videos still move, but i notice that allot of them are being lost on the end, this means that if before i got 300 views per day, now i get around 60 to 100 views per day (on lucky days) ( i have two test videos one with vagex, and other with u2bviews, views still come on both but they are slow and i feel like some are being lost)
    kingsta are you using any type of view increaser like vagex or so?

    It seems to be unless the video finishes playing it won't count as being watched. So if your videos just got watched for a couple of seconds then it isn't counted as watched this is what I have noticed these days

    Thats impossible, my test videos are all with 5 / 6 minutes lenght and they are only a black screen, in other words, no one would watch this videos till the end, also they are unlisted, one is runing on vagex, and other on u2bviews, both play the video for just a couple of seconds, and some views are still being counted, so it seems that is just the youtube system being extremly laggy and dont counting major part of the views, but hoodkist if you have solid proof of what you are saying i would apreciate you to post here :p every help is apreciated.


    I have never been an youtube partner, but lets say, when you say "impressions" are these valid impressions? because other way someone could just spam ads impressions, are these unique daily impressions? because if yes then this is more then proof that their system is lagging and dont counting properly their views.

    By the way the 15 to 16 views every x hours is exactly what is happening with me, and im sure the videos should be getting at least 300 views per day when it only gets like max 80 views (sometimes not more then 50)
    Its for sure an youtube problem but what confuses me is that google employes stoped to answering to people on their youtube forums regarding the view counter, wich sometimes leads me to think that they updated their system (yet if they did then is not working properly and people like shane , nigahiga are being affected), also if they updated their system they would also update the impressions on adsense to match the views with the public counter and acording to jmanic its not matching.

    Still fucked up.

    I have videos that jumped a few thousand views a day due to a lag, and others that should be doing the same stuck and getting 30-50 views a day.

    AdSense impressions are not good for comparing how many views you are getting because 1 AdSense impression <> 1 view.
    Many people who search on YouTube click on video results, but never play it, or watch only the first 2-3 seconds and click back. If the video is revenue share enabled it will equal AdSense impression, but not view.

    from what ive seen:

    you can get to 300 views quickly ,but after the usual 300 view freeze everything is extremely slow to go up

    kingsta at this right time you shouldnt order services that promisse you "impressions" because you will end up losing views, their system seems to be lagging and only counting like 20% of the received views, im "lucky" that u2bviews is not an impressions system meaning that the video will only left the system when it accomplishes their views.
    Anyways what jmanic says is more then proof that their system is not working properly at counting views, and i can also see this myself on my test videos, the only sad thing is that youtube employes stoped to answer to this problem on youtube forums, this means that it should take a while to get this fixed.

    thx for the insite .

    1. Also hey djlobo before this youtube flaw happened, how many views daily was one single video getting on your system with in 24hours?

    2. Also does u2bviews do comments?

    Vagex is good, Enhance Views is better.
    It's the only free service that works for me, give me the views that I ask for in a very short time and also the only one that allow you to write your own comments, and lot more.

    Enhance Views? Really? I've had zero luck with them and the 250-views-per-video-at-a-time system is annoying. Maybe I should test them again if your evaluation is legit. Are you sure the views are coming from EHV? I am also curious as to what their referrer is set to at the moment.
