    what happen with the youtube view count now a day? It's not updating even after 48 hour. There was no update from 9-12 Dec. There was an update on 13 Dec and i hope everything will be ok now. But i found that there is update with any of my views in last 48 hours. Last time i see and view update on 14 Dec and after that, nothing happen. Can any one give me any information about that?

    It can take up to 4 - 5 days for the views to update.

    Happening with me as well. YouTube views must be going through extra checks to verify they are legitimate. I think this is do due the recent abuses with the 10 million views in 1 day mobile stuff. Last update for me was 3 days ago.

    Views will update after 2-3 days and they will say all views are tracked. But actually not. By this way they are stealing our views.

    This really makes programming a YouTube view bot difficult. lol When you have to wait 2-4 days for results to a simple test, kinda puts you off.

    Why would Google want to steal your views?

    This is already normal for Youtube.
    First time,the view counter stopped was in June or so...they did some changes and all view counters stopped for over a month. Everyone was complaining about it and Youtube promised that they will add the views which the videos have got during this issue time back to the video once everything´s back to normal.

    But the truth was: everyone lost the views. Youtube never added them back to the video.

    However...after that, the view count was working for a few weeks but it´s already normal that the counter stops regularly cause they´re working on changing their system all the time.
    And everytime, they´re doing some changes on the system or the site itself, the counter stops working.....

    Exactly my thoughts about the recent delayed views reporting issue. They must have placed a filtering system to do the double checks which views are real and not. Also, this move would counteract and would definitely discourage artificial views inflators. Yt life is getting harder each day!

    Yep, I'm in the same boat. I'm testing various tricks to inflate views and having to wait days to see what works and what not it's just uber frustrating.
