    Video views on You tube

    For many years I have had a YouTube channel. I use it as a way of having back ups. These days I also have a OneDrive account which is my preferred back up solution. However I save the dive videos to both places. The data analytics are a bit curious. I expect that the occasional spam bot will view the content so expect the view count to be fairly low. In fact until recently there were only two subscribers, which is two more than i would expect. I now have several subscribers, worrying in itself.

    However, one of the recent video uploads has received hundreds of views in the past few days. Now unless you are a keen watcher of swimming scallops then there is not a great deal to be excited about.

    Given that I don't share links to the YouTube channel or videos, I can only guess that someone else has been sharing a particular video on my behalf. Can anyone assist with explaining why one particular dive video, not even the best IMO, is receiving so much attention?

    This is the actual video

    No idea of the source of the views but I enjoyed the video. Made me feel hungry - loads of scallops and scampi!

    I love watching scallops swimming - they look like flying false teeth. Most non-divers expect them to swim in the opposite direction.

    If it makes you feel any better, Rob's most viewed video on the Tube with probably 100X more looks than any of our beautiful underwater stuff is a pile of vomit the cat did that's full of writing round worms. It's called something like 'Pumpkin's little friends' if you wish to lose your lunch. It was never promoted in any way.

    Maybe it was the recent scallop pot/disco ball story that got people searching.
    Bought a house in Devon, drank cider from a lemon.

    Blimey, I'm not surprised it's popular! How the hell do they hold their pens?

    It's odd where the views and subscribers come from, i currently have 226 subscribers and last published a scuba video 11 years ago, in fact i only put it on YouTube in order to share it with someone on the UKDivers forum, i wanted to show just a couple of people something. I guess, one person sees this and then YouTube thinks it's popular so pushes it to someone else and so on. I don't think 99% of my views are legitimate views, more something like YouTube itself auto-suggested one of my videos to play after something someone genuinely wanted.

    Found it - 37,000 views, ludicrous. Also, the idiot spelled 'Pumpkin' wrong

    I watched the last one 2 days ago. Was looking for stuff around spools and small reels and that was one of the suggestions when viewing something else. Don’t know if that makes me one of the 99%?
