    I tried use the free 2.5k-5k views from JumpStartViews on one of my videos, gathered a 4.6k extra views to a video I'd about 500 views on.
    Also I bought a 5k views from ViralSocials (but it got me some extra, like 7k views).

    Now I got a video with 7.5k views and 5.2k views. But on my channel in the total views box, I only have about 900 views (the views in total I had, before I used these 2 sites to get more views.


    I wonder, will these views get updated or is it that YouTube can detect that those views are 'fake' and therefor it wont count in?
    Or does it just take a couple of days for it to update?

    I also have monetizing on these 2 videos. Do you think this will generate me money or will YouTube suspect cheating and get me down?

    It has just been taking a while to update the total view count of a channel, this is normal right now. YouTube is screwy with their updates of views and analytics, it doesn't all update at the same time.

    it takes time to update views if you get views in large numbers like so chill ..but if its taking more than a couple days then i feel something is wrong most the videos gets freezed at 300

    hm okey.

    Yeah I know about the freeze point, however I already passed 300 views on both of the videos when I submitted to those 2 sites.

    all my views and subs are organic and the same is happening to me. view count seems to update every few hours or so, sub count on my profile doesn't seem to update in real time either

    It will update just be patient, if YT detected something they would already take down your videos.

    It takes some time for it to update the views, so give it an hour or two and I am sure that the views will show up.
