    Sometimes in the related videos section, I will see my video with less views than it actually has. I can click on the video page itself and it is updated, but is there a reason why the counters aren't updated for the sidebar related videos. I figure it would update on its own over time, but does it affect any type of SEO but not updating right away. Or since its fully updated on my video page, does that mean its getting all the SEO juice it should.

    I dont think it should... I think that they take the actual videos views meaning the number of views u have when you click on the video... I can be wrong just saying. :)

    Yeah it definitely doesn't get the extra SEO juice until the views are showing in the suggestions and on the search results.

    Hey at least you're showing up on the right-hand side for related videos. I can't for the life of me figure out how to show up over there (other than on my own videos). If you have any tips or tricks for showing up on the right-side I'd love to hear them!

    From my experience, your videos won't be a related video on other videos that actually get a significant amount of views until your video has been on the site for a long time and been getting views. That is just my experience, though.
