    Please don't spank me too hard..hahaha

    OK so I made a cool little clip, emblazened it with a url, made the clip out of edited pics and MY music (handy to be a musician sometimes) and only made one YouTube account and uploaded the video...everything that far worked great...however

    When I try to search for the video from another PC, it doesn't come up. When I search my account username (from same other PC) the account comes up with the one video there, but my description doesn't show like they do on the videos that come up under similar results underneath in the search results. instead it has just "...filename...". Also oddly, the 10 views that show when U go to the video aren't showing when I do the search for my username, it shows the video has 0 views. I'm horribly confused.

    Anyone know something obvious I am not doing that will make this all better? My tired thanks to you in advance

    This is normal, search engine results can take up to 48 hours to update.

    Also the views in your account update real time until you hit a certain amount when they start to update delayed. However they'll always updated delated when not logged onto that account and looking at your My Videos section.

    OH..so even when searching right in YouTube when logged in under a different account (I only have two atm) on a different computer and IP, the search in YouTube itself can take up to 48 hours to update?

    Strange, as I saw videos there that had been posted AFTER mine, and they had 0 views etc, but they came up in search

    Hey as usual, you BHW guys ROCK! In 24 hrs using what I learned here (and already being OK at making a movie file) I got started on YouTube and am on the first page for results on my keyword and have 176 REAL views I didnt even fake! I know this may sound as funny as the "I made my first CU sale today!" posts to some hear, but I am psyched...now I just hope I get the re$$ults I need! Thanks for your help BH'rs!
