Youtube not updating views
The reason for this is strictly monetary, a game of numbers.
There are millions of videos with fewer than 300 — or even fewer than 100 — views posted to the site.
That’s not to say your videos are meaningless; You Tube cares that they exist and cares about their content.
However, when You Tube monetizes a video, it does it through views.
Instead, Sorry to say, but if your videos have under 300 views, as far as You Tube is concerned, they’re inconsequential.
This is the driving force behind many of the other peculiarities in view counts as well.
