Update on Frozen Viewcounts

By David Boyle

YouTube Staff

We've heard from creators over the past few days that some public viewcounts have been frozen. We're sorry for the issue and we're close to fixing it. In the meantime, here's what you need to know:

  1. While the public viewcount is stuck, all your views are still being recorded, and are visible in YouTube Analytics. 
  2. AdSense impressions are not affected by this data backlog. 

You should see the results of our fixes within the next couple of days, and until all public viewcount updates have occurred, YouTube Analytics remains the most timely and accurate source of views data.

Thank you for your patience with these fixes, and hope your 2012 is off to a great start.
