    So many people are asking questions about "frozen views"

    or "stuck views" that I decided to spend considerable time

    investigating this issue.

    First of all, I hope you're aware that YouTube has radically

    changed the way it counts "views". Gone are the old days

    when a simple "click" meant a "view". Lots of people were

    falsely inflating their own "views" this way, or using "spam

    bots" and "increasers" to artificially generate those "views",

    trying to make their videos appear more popular than they

    really were. This was written in YouTube's blog of Mar. 13:

    http://www.youtube.com/blog?entry=s9Y00m1vmhA

    But there were several things YouTube never said. And all

    the discussion boards/threads/forums I have come across

    haven't said a thing either, thus I may have some answers:

    For the first 200-or-so views (sometimes it'll go up till 300),

    "all is fair" -- meaning it does not matter how those "views"

    were generated, cheating or otherwise. They're permanent.

    After that, YouTube checks up on those views to see how

    many were actually "legitimate". If YouTube feels that any

    of them were suspicious, they'll "freeze" the view count till

    the number of "real views" matches the 200 or 300.

    What exactly is a "real view"? I have a feeling that it might

    be something like 30 seconds or maybe a ¼ the length of

    the video. Anything less than that is either not considered

    a view, or perhaps it's a half-view.

    Why 200 or 300? And why the small variations/differences

    for those people stuck at 206, 217 or 301? YouTube won't

    ever tell you (or anyone) this, but most ordinary videos get

    1 "rating" for about every 200 to 300 views, while the extra

    popular videos get 1 rating for about every 50 or 100. Thus

    anything which "deviates" from those norms is considered

    suspicious. (I'm pretty sure that YouTube probably has an

    equivalent formula for "comments", but I do not know what

    those minimums/maximums might be).

    Also taken into consideration would be: 1 -- the number of

    different computers that have watched your video, 2 -- how

    many of those views were actually derived from the "same"

    computers, and 3 -- the "pace" at which people clicked on

    your video. If you have friends who legitimately watch your

    video, but do it repeatedly maybe every few minutes/hours,

    I believe that only some of those views count, and that the

    others are set aside.

    YouTube (and Google) have statistics for everything, more

    than we'll ever know. Thus, I'm sure there are other factors

    too -- like the "proportionality" of those views compared to

    your previous video(s). In other words, if before all this you

    were only getting 5 views a day, how can it be that all of a

    sudden you're getting 200 if your total subscribers has not

    gone up significantly?

    All this helps to explain why your views are "stuck" at 301

    while the person who uploaded Susan Boyle and "Britain's

    Got Talent" had over 20,000,000 after just a couple weeks:

    -- those numbers were not derived from "bots",

    -- people watched for more than 30+ seconds,

    -- the ratings are not "disproportionate" at all,

    -- tons of computers have watched this video,

    -- nobody reclicked after a few short seconds,

    -- there's no way that Susan Boyle had that many "friends"

    on YouTube trying to "inflate the views".

    Youtube does this on a purpose, do not panic. They inspect a video to see whether someone would be cheating to gain more views. They need to verify it, sometimes it can take longer than usual. Be calm. After a while, if everything is fine, the view count will resume. Many people want more views, so they keep watching their video over and over again until the number gets high. YouTube stops the views temporarily at 300 to make sure that a person is not doing that.
