The views are updated in real time and can be adjusted depending on the number of times the video is watched and the number of users watching it. The number of views can also be adjusted according to the video confidentiality parameters. For example, if a video is only visible by subscribers, only subscribers can contribute to the number of views of the video. YouTube does not count the views of private or not listed videos. The views of videos are an important measure of their popularity and their success. Videos that have a lot of views are generally considered to be more interesting or more entertaining than those who have less. Views of videos can also have an influence on their ranking in YouTube’s search results and positioning in video recommendations. Videos that have a lot of views are generally better classified than those who have less, which means that they are more likely to be seen by YouTube users. The number of views is also an important indicator for advertisers and content creators. Advertisers often use the number of views as a criterion to determine if a video is likely to attract user attention and if it is likely to generate clicks on the announcements. Content creators can also use the number of views to assess the user’s interest in their content and to determine whether their content is sufficient to be seen by a large audience.
