Sometimes it just doesn’t seem right. You’ve been changing up your posts, adding new Tiktoks, and promoting them as well as you can but still, your TikTok views don’t go higher than 0. And here’s the kicker – your friends have TONS of views on their videos yet yours are stuck at a measly 0! What’s going on here? Is there some kind of conspiracy against your adorable Tiktoks?
Why Am I Getting 0 Views For My TikToks?
1. Your video is a TikTok rejected video
By definition, a TikTok rejected video is one that does not meet the technical specifications required of the platform. Videos more than 30 seconds long, poor quality videos and those with adverts or promotional materials are all examples of videos that may be rejected by TikTok for not meeting these standards.
Unfortunately, there’s no way of knowing how your video was rejected unless you try to upload it again and hope that it doesn’t happen a second time. However, if you have used TikTok’s built-in editor, there is a chance your video was rejected because it wasn’t deemed “appropriate” by the company. If this is the case, there isn’t much you can do other than try to edit it again or use a different editing app.
2. Your video is too old
TikTok has an algorithm that decides when to show your videos in people’s feeds, and the fact of the matter is that this algorithm prefers newer content over older content. This means that if your video was published a few weeks ago, it may not be as popular as it should be. The simplest solution to this problem is to just wait for a few days before you try promoting your TikTok again.
3. You need more followers
You’ve all heard of the saying “there’s no such thing as a free lunch”? Well, in the social media world, there’s also no such thing as free views! If you want more views on your video, the secret is to get more followers. TikTok has a whole system in place that rewards users for following and interacting with other accounts. The higher number of followers you have, the easier it will be for people who don’t follow you to discover your videos.
4. You’ve been muted/shadow banned
Another possible reason why you aren’t getting the views you want is that TikTok may have silenced or shadowbanned you. This means that even though people are able to see your video, they are unable to interact with it in anyway – which basically ensures that nobody watches it. TikTok has a system in place, called “muting”, which allows you block or hide accounts that you don’t want to see. If your account was muted by other people and you didn’t know about it, this could be the reason why nobody is watching your videos.
5. Your video doesn’t fit into any of Tiktok’s “like” categories
Another possible reason why you aren’t getting any views is that your video doesn’t fit into any of TikTok’s like categories. There are tons of TikTok users who make videos that don’t really fit in with the rest and, as a result, they get hardly any views and engagement. Although there isn’t much you can do about this issue, there’s a small chance that if you tried to create a video that fits into one of TikTok’s like categories you would see an increase in views.
Now that we’ve covered the most likely reasons why your videos aren’t going as crazy viral as they should be, hopefully, you’ll see bigger and better things happening in no time!
So how can I get more views on TikTok?
There are many factors that determine the number of views your video gets, but one of the most important ones is whether or not you use hashtags in your description. Excluding capital letters and making the hashtags part of your original description will help other people find your videos more easily and it may boost your views in the process.
