My You Tube views are frozen

My You Tube views are frozen

 

Dynamica Music Youtube banner

New content, not sure how to promote it.

I’m stuck at 301 and I don’t know why

 

A thank you goes to You Tube for providing a free hosting site to display our content. In the beginning it was little tough to sort out the video sizes, rates and thumbnails, but now You Tube is much easier to navigate. They added Ad Sense and Monetizing, so content creators can get paid a small amount from the traffic they drive to You Tube. Of course you’ve seen ads that claim to ‘boost’ your views or services offering thousands of ‘real’ views for cheap. Of course these are all scams and fake looks- created with clever programming and bots. Bots are automated programs and scripts designed to trigger repeated views of content without any human interaction.

 

Rihanna VS Katy Perry

Of course views are important. So when major labels were outed and their fake views purged from You Tube, we realized WHY those services were used so often. When I hit the You Tube home page and saw a Rihanna video with millions of views and right next to it, a Katy Perry video with many more millions, I thought “Wow, although Katy Perry isn’t in the news, but she’s still more popular than Rihanna. Oh and look, Katy is even more looked at than Lady Gaga who has a big world tour going on.” So yeah, it works on us and gives us an impression of how beloved the artist is. It does seem stupid to gauge the quality of a thing by first checking how popular it is. We are driven by ‘seens’ over substance and it’s now more important to be followed than supported by true fans.

 

The Great You Tube crack down and dividing your dividends

To combat rigging views and gaming the system, You Tube monitors views and weeds out bad quality views. This causes your video to freeze at 301 + views while You Tube’s algorithms calculates and recalculates your actual QUALITY views. You can read their policy here:

https://support.google.com/youtube/troubleshooter/2991876?hl=en#ts=2995440

 

You can read more about how You Tube and Google prevent invalid activity here: https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/1348752
So what do you do?

Wait. And wait some more. Since this policy has started, there is no longer any way to contact You Tube tech support and the previous emails I have used to contact You Tube are no longer valid. Even Google, which used to be super fast in response time, has a continuous looping hold message that never picks up. After an hour and a half, I have up, even though the pre-recorded message said my call was important and hang on in there.

 

Terms and Critical Conditions

Yeah, you’d better read that You Tube user policy and agreement you clicked on before you uploaded that video of your cat playing with the ball of string. Cheating the system can lead to the removal of your video and/or the deletion of your channel. ANYTHING that plays your video in a hosting program or runs deeply embedded (anything other than the generic SHARE link code) runs the risk of being a violation. And you are wholly responsible. Meaning any site can tell you they are “You Tube Partners” or “totally safe”, “views by real people” or “We work with You Tube”. That is all lies. And they can say whatever they want, because YOU will lose your content and channel. You Tube doesn’t care how you got scammed. And yes, you will see ads on You Tube. Yep, on You Tube, Facebook, Twitter and Reverb Nation. And these sites WILL USE THE YOU TUBE logo. They do not care, but you should. Virool and Promolta are sites that violate You Tube user policy. [I couldn’t get You Tube to put that in writing or their support to put it in a full sentence, but if you read your Terms and Conditions, you will easily see where this goes wrong] Use them at your own risk and apply some common sense when looking to promote your content. If someone or some entity could send 10,000 people to look at a video, they’d be pretty powerful right? That’s like some celebrity force-power right there. Why would that engine be available to you for $9.95? Enough said on that.

 

The Quality View Quandary So how do I get more views?

You Tube has an area dedicated to offering you tips on getting more exposure or making better use of the exposure you do get. It’s worth reading and following. My channel had some issues and I addressed them real quick.

Thanks You Tube!

You Tube info: http://www.youtube.com/yt/creators/get-viewers.html

wiki link: http://www.wikihow.com/Get-More-Views-on-Your-YouTube-Videos

 

Analyzing Analytics

This area is, along with the new Realtime feature should provide extended information that continually updates to let you know where traffic is coming from and the rate of your views. Of course this information could prove to be invaluable in determining what advertising campaigns are the most effective. It’s a rub, then, that view counts freeze at 301 since you can no longer tell what’s working and how well. If you press the analytics button, located to the bottom right, below your video, you are taken to a screen that displays all the pertinent information – including those so important Quality Views. That’s the real number that You Tube has verified as your view count. Yes, it’s much, much lower than the views posted on the channel or video page. Somewhere between those two numbers are the crunchy crunch, crunch algorithm You Tube is using to keep evil-doers from getting payouts based on fake activity. Unfortunately, it seems thousands, if not millions of channels are caught up in that netting pause.

 

You Tube Server Problems

Server aint servin right

Right now, my analytics are broken due to server problems, but even when it worked, it wasn’t working right. When I launched a new video, I sent 40 of my more likely to watch friends a text with the link and info about a new video. About 30 responded back relatively quickly with comments about the video or called briefly to talk about it. My analytics showed no activity and the view count stayed minimal for several days. Even comments alone, proved there was more activity than You Tube counted. I have seen threads across the net about how You Tube is changing their view-meter every day or every few hours. What constitutes a Quality View? They keep changing this to outwit the bots and scammers. Do mobile views count? Can a person watch my video several times? What about tablets? Are embedded videos counted? What percentage of the video being watched counts as a view? All good questions and as long as You Tube must keep changing their counting system, there will probably never be a definitive answer.

 

This video has more than 300 views. C’mon You Tube, let’s work it out.

Personal Plays Plague Problems

Hey, this is my blog isn’t it? So of course it gets personal. I wrote an extremely nice letter (this is business after all) to You Tube detailing my entire video launch campaign, which included screen shots as evidence. It shows my Constant Contact customer lists, which are in the thousands. My twitter blasts and the number of artist-centric accounts that retweet. This, TheDynamicUniverse blog shows a huge spike whenever new content is released, my Facebook ad results that show thousands of views and hundreds of engagements and my radio airplay that show huge spins and also has direct links to my You Tube channel videos for the same songs getting spins. I’ve done less, with lesser videos, and gotten more views. So the final question is, What can we do about this new View Count system and how long do we have to wait before the system is fixed. Until I get real answers to these questions, I am limited to making fresh content and hoping someone sees it. If you have any ideas or comments, you can share them with me in the comment section below.

 

+UPDATE: (10/13/14) Views are unfrozen, but it looks like the initial launch views were reset.

Video Dynamics Plus – Seek End Destroy

Dynamics Plus drops a video for Seek End Destroy Rocket Science

 

Dynamics Plus Seek End Destroy

I see you have constructed your own microphone…

Official video for “Seek End Destroy Rocket Science” from the Dynamics Plus album Rocket Science.
Filmed by Samuel M Wimbley

Seek End Destroy

lyrics by Dynamics Plus

 

Must a smoked some ecto-dust and got

paranoid. lungs collapse, combust.

Here come the Dynamic Plus, android: Seek and Destroy

Crush, Murder Kill Leon Spinks his grill –

till little bits of his tongue splits, spits when he spits.

These are the scripts of a sick scientist.

Codename: Jade Mantis.

You want to attack this?

You better practice Drunk Monkey style.

Monk, chip monk making chip Tunes,

you chip tooth rap raccoon

Kung-fu coon, you stuttering fool.

Shut up. Pile in. Shuttle shutter island.

Juvenile style, while I’m styling on you.

Now hold up, I’m handing out these orange cones.

Microphones in the studio construction zone.

Heavy loads, I’m racing over like tracks like Tyco.

Plus, I’m a super charged, turbo-charged superstar.

You’re sub par, need a call from your OnStar.

Your car lacks charge, your bars lack barbs

– Trying to start and spar with a Spartan of art.

Ask Tony Starks about the shards in his heart.

I’m starving, sharpening when I’m carving him.

Bring Karen Carpenter in or Stephen King or

John Carpenter or a #2 sharpener-

Bring anything to make my darts even sharper.

Go even harder with a sharpie-edged marker

Defeat em with my wrapping, they call me Peter Parker.

You in a sound proof booth with a saber tooth.

Time to tell the truth: I produce so I’m bullet proof.

I MC, make a thousand of these.

I shock you with my Chakra; I’m Blanka with my energies

My kick speed: you playing soccer with a centipede.

Want some more? Make some noise, I seek and Destroy!

Fallout Shelter: “Elevator Music Volume III Going Down”

 

Fallout Shelter Music

Jamsphere in the Sphere of influence.

Emotional warmth fills the tracks

along with their usual sonic extremes

Posted By: Rick JammPosted date: September 22, 2014

 

Four music producers decide to combine forces and create music under the name Fallout Shelter. They are Dynamics Plus (from the Lenzmen rap group), Drew Spence (from Producer’s Edge Magazine), Xodus Phoenix (instrumentalist) and Domino Grey (electronic music producer). These are instrumentals and beats designed for your listening pleasure.

Fallout Shelter has always taken their sound to new heights, adding depth and intricacy to their scores of heady electronics. Emotional warmth fills the tracks, along with their usual sonic extremes, creating an album that is at once moving and honest. Elevator Music Volume III Going Down will change the way you listen to electronic music.

Fallout Shelter Elevator Music Volume I: BASSment Level

September 21, 2014 Leave a comment

Rewinding since the trailer series is now current with this addition.

The Dynamic Universe Blog

Elevator Music Volume I: BASSment Level

This is instrumental music from the Fallout Shelter. The Lenzmen Dynamics Plus, Drew Spence, Domino Grey and Xodus Phoenix combine forces to bring you a collection of radioactive treats. The sonics are hard and beautiful, thick and agile. Ride the Elevator down to the lowest level, the Bassment Level. Go ahead. Press the button on the bottom.

Somewhere underground, there is a fortified bunker. Within these walls, the structure of sound is manipulated under the watchful eye of Doctor Atomics. Breaking the silence of solitude is the voice of Amy Fiona Lexington, an advanced Self Aware Digital Entity, charged with the balancing of applied harmonics. She is the guardian companion of scientist and track architect Dynamics Plus.

Electronic Specialist Domino Grey uses his sonic footprint to layer additional melodic, semi-periodic content. The Xodus Phoenix adds his low-grain yield to compliment the aural decay…

SNV Life has plenty to say about Plenty to Say with Dynamics Plus- Interview

SNV Life interview with Dynamics Plus about Plenty to Say feat Nae B

Source: http://www.snvlife.com/d-plus-interview

Nae B in studio

Singer Nae B maybe at the board

 

The Rocket Science album has lifted off and D Plus hits orbit with another video release. It’s for “Plenty to Say feat. Nae B” and we ask some questions about the visual.

What’s the story behind Plenty to Say?

Well, it’s kind of a first date scenario and I’m telling about some cleverness I pulled off to get in close with a girl. There’s the two dancers acting out the lyrics and the parallel of a studio session with a singer I just met.

How is that working- since no one really does dating stories?

Well yeah, it’s usually a lot more raw like ‘look how I bagged this chick and beat it up a few minutes later’. These are grown-man bars and ….

ENTERTWINE Rising Artist Feature: Dynamics Plus

Interview with Dynamics Plus on ENTERTWINE with Jacqueline Cassell

 

 

Dynamics Plus Phase Shift

Dynamics Plus: Phase Shifted and shifting gears

 

Hip Hop artist, Dynamics Plus and his recent album, “Rocket Science” has been making the rounds. Along with the raps and production, Dynamics Plus been crafting music videos that really spell out his message. We thought he caught a nice spin with his previous release, “Phase Shift,” but now his second video, for “Gear Lust,” is proving to be just as captivating. We sit down with this instrument collector and find out more about studio life and technology, and how the big music retailer Sam Ash got involved!

 

Entertwine: Could you tell us a bit about your musical background? What originally inspired you to create music?

Dynamics Plus: I think, like most, there was a moment when you loved music that spoke to you and you felt like you also had something to say that wasn’t being said. You keep asking How come no one ever…and eventually you see yourself as the person willing to try something new.

 

ET: How many albums have you released and how long have you been pursuing and living your dreams?

DP: If I count everything together, probably ten, but rap alone, maybe five. Well, the dream or dreams keep changing. At one point I wanted a record deal and I spent all my energy working on being viable. Then one day, after years of frustration, I just gave myself a record deal. Yep, I made a record label and signed myself. It was the most liberating thing I’ve ever done. I no longer had to worry about every little thing being catchy or how will this group or that group respond and I didn’t have to make music for imaginary suits. I didn’t even need to worry about commercial radio- I could rock out for the headphones!

That lead to me make whatever I wanted and people would hear my music and say “Oh, I don’t think labels would…” and I would answer with: Well, I only need one label and I already found one that digs me…mine.
