AOL Uncut (AOL’s site for amateur videos) appears to be guilty of technical problems or fraudielent video-view counts. Content creators are recalling that months ago their videos were getting anywhere from 5-15,000 views regularly. Then some weeks ago the view counts were all “reset.” Now most of my videos are getting just dozens of views — and even the most popular video I’ve got on AOL Uncut has fewer views then I typically get in an afternoon on YouTube.
I know I’m not alone in this because I’ve spoken with other content creators. What’s up?
