Why do YouTube Videos get Stuck at 301 Views?

If you have spent quite some time on YouTube watching videos, am sure you might have seen several videos getting stuck at “301+” views. On the flip side if you are a YT channel owner and uploaded a video that is stuck at 301+ views for quite a while, don’t you worry, its NOT a software glitch or mistake.

Each YT video uploaded to your channel on YouTube is copied into several servers at different geographic locations across the globe and when a video request is done from YouTube website, it is served from the nearest server. Once the video is served, YouTube geography based system makes an entry log into their database which is later calculated and synced at the main server for total views calculation.

300th view is the checkpoint according to YouTube where the views are validated for their genuineness and paused until cleared, this is the reason the views get stuck at this number for some time. So next time you encounter a stuck view number, you already know the answer!
