After spending hundreds of dollars, using tags, optimizing your thumbnail image, using quality and keyword with a detailed description, creating compelling contents, encouraging viewers to subscribe to your channels and other strategies of building a YouTube account, it could be quite disappointing and discouraging to find out that YouTube has removed the views you made over the years. In short, YouTube will only count real YouTube views.
However, before you blow off the stream and start posting unfair comments about social media, it is vital to know that YouTube will never take any action without reason. As of February 2011, YouTube has 490 million unique users worldwide per month.
Therefore, you can’t expect such a platform to carry out an action that will cost them not only their reputation but also their users. Rather than chasing rainbows on how you can get your views back, why not take your time to read on some significant reasons YouTube delete reviews.
Why does YouTube remove views?
If you asked me why YouTube removes reviews, I would have hundreds of answers to give. However, to cut the chase, let’s consider a few of them.
YouTube removes views it finds invalid. With the advancement in technology around the world, people make use of computer programs as well as bots to do what humans are expected to do. So, YouTube considers some views invalid if they are from computer programs or bots. Not only is the action an amateur hour but also a violation of the platform’s terms and conditions.
So, if you find out that your views are frozen or do not show all the views as expected, it might mean you have committed this crime. To clear the air, you can contact YouTube for more information and probably a solution if available. However, it is essential to know that YouTube is doing this to maintain fair and positive experiences for content creators, advertisers, as well as viewers.
While some validation of views is due to illegitimacy, some views are removed owing to the failure of the systems and computers used by the company. For instance, YouTube affirms that it is normal for the public count to adjust as the systems delete views that are either not accurate or real. Over 10 million views belonging to “Boy With Luv” was validated because the views were so unprecedented that live estimates couldn’t keep up with the system. YouTube regards this action as breaking the view counter. If you are in this shoe, you will find out that the views are frozen or deleted while YouTube works through it.
People with a plethora of views on their channel are also liable or prone to validation or frozen of views. This action occurs especially to users with a crazy high number of views on their video channel. Unlike other validation systems, removing views on videos is more frequent and popular. So, there is no cause for alarm when you discover that your views have been deleted under your videos after an extended period of making them. All you need to do is to contact YouTube support as there are always ways to rectify such problems.
If the validation of your views caught you with pants down, it is not too late to return to the drawing board and pencil things in on how to build another channel and get as many views as possible without violating any norms or rules.
