So I just watched this genius Tumblr-focused Lady Gaga parody from Chescaleigh and was shocked that it only had 130,000 views.
Then I remembered something I recently heard from Gunnarolla…
Tumblr Views Don’t Count.
When you see a video on your dash, it has a little circular play sign…this is inside of Tumblr’s technology…it isn’t the normal YouTube play button. When you hit that play button, the video “auto plays.” Meaning, you don’t have to push the YOUTUBE play button…ever. You hit the Tumblr play button and Tumblr’s code tells the YouTube video to automatically play the video without the second click.
But since you don’t actually push the YouTube play button…YouTube considers this an auto-play, and auto-plays don’t get counted (because some shitty people used auto-playing to artificially inflate view counts of videos.)
So, Tumblr views don’t count.
What should we do about it? Nothing, because Tumblr views DO count because they still play ads and creators still make money and viewers still enjoy the content. It just doesn’t add to the little view count and that’s just something to be aware of.
