Since validity and security is a priority at You Tube, they set up a system that freezes counts at 301 until the validity of those views can be verified.

A statistical verification process is gone through to ensure the quality of a video.

For instance, If the computer sees that this is happening a significant number of times, it’s a good indicator that video is not quality, and You Tube can look into it.

From funny personal videos to business promotion videos, there is a wide range of video types promoted on You Tube.

Some channels are also monetized so that the amount of views a channel or video gets is related to how much money that business owner or person makes.

Counterfeit views are a problem that You Tube wants to counter, so part of the reason they freeze views at 301 is to make sure that no counterfeit views are being recorded.

Computers have many systems and algorithms to make sure that this isn’t happening, and in a day or so your views will rise after they have been counted and verified.

Every once in awhile, You Tube collects these logs and downloads them so the computers can tally views.

Not only is that a lot of information to verify, but the computers are looking for more than just a count of the views.

You Tube may repeat this process if you start getting a really high volume of views, as well, again to ensure quality and security.
