In this post, I will share with you why your TikTok stuck on zero views?, also I will provide solutions to resolve this issue in detail.

It is also possible that there may be technical issues with the video or with the user’s account, which could prevent the video from being viewed by other users. In some cases, TikTok may temporarily suppress the distribution of a video if it violates its community guidelines or if it contains content that is deemed to be harmful or offensive.

Why My TikTok has No Views

The reason for new views include using a device or email address that was banned previously due to violation of TikTok community guidelines, or your video post contains copyrighted and harmful content. However, it is not always the case for getting no views.

Whether you’re a brand new account or you’ve already been established on the platform, either case will help you to understand and potentially resolve the problem

Why does my TikTok have 0 views

The latest update with the algorithm is suppressing content that is not original. For Example, if you have used a song outside of TikTok’s music library in the background or a video clip from youtube is usually getting you 0 Views on TikTok.

Also, TikTok has a very powerful AI that scrapes through everything in your post that includes: description, text on video, video object motions, audio. It then matches your content to its community guideline standards. 

Why does my TikTok have 0 views after an hour

After 1 hour no view on TikTok: Your video may be “under review” if this is the case. Usually, you’ll receive a message informing you of this. Why does this matter? TikTok must ensure that videos adhere to their community rules.

Now keeping that in mind, the AI and community guideline, there are usually the following reasons that you are not getting views.

1. Using Previously Banned Device for TikTok

You’re using a banned device to upload to Tik Tok. TikTok is very strict with banned users if you or anyone happened to use your device for TikTok posts in the past and was permanently banned. 

Most certainly, you will not be welcomed again with a new account too.

If you want to make sure your device is not banned, try making a new profile on your sibling’s mobile or your parent’s mobile to check if it is working or not.

2. Using Same Email After TikTok Banned

Just like using the same device after you have been banned from the platform, using the same E-mail address to create a new account will make your account under the shadow unless TikTok has whitelisted you. Having said that you should only use the new E-mail address for your New Tik Tok account.

Tik Tok’s AI is smart enough to detect that you are the same creator through close distance proximity of the device, same content type, etc. But if you are using the same Email address, that is an easy job. You will not get success.

TikTok is strict with guidelines and they don’t want to bring the same people back to their platform.

3. Usage of Copyright Material 

This point applies primarily to those with meme channels or any sort of compilation-based account on Tik Tok where you’re re-uploading content that you might source elsewhere on the internet like from youtube.

Tik Tok AI is picking up connecting the dots between your TikTok posts and other sources.

If you are uploading content about sports franchises like football, UFC, Tennis, or any branded clips, you have a high chance of getting your views going back to 0.

4. Technical TikTok Issues

When TikTok is going through some technical issues then you can’t do anything with your views, but wait till the error is fixed by TikTok. I will place the link at the end of the post for you to find current issues with TikTok.

5. Brand new Account On TikTok

In case, you just created an account and it has not been more than 24 hours since then, and you posted a video on TikTok your videos are under review.

This is actually a system that TikTok implemented in 2020. You can think of it as a system, a safety measure that Tik Tok implemented to protect its viewers from harmful or hateful content.

Because, the brand new users, commonly ignore community guidelines in the beginning. Therefore, they have just made it standard for the new creators.

It takes anywhere between 10 to 24 hours to get approved.

But, if you are not a new account and it has been a while on TikTok and your video is under review. It can be due to systematic review or due to inappropriate content.

It is a bit arbitrary at times, just like random police check, it happens at the worst of times and there’s very little reason why certain profiles are selected to be subject to the manual video review.

It is not a bad thing, if you have not violated community guidelines, you will be fine.

Don’t remove your video, give it some time.

6. Duplicate Content-Type on TikTok

The content of the video that you posted is duplicated across multiple profiles.

Tik Tok is in transition, the platform has been making changes to prioritizing more original content created natively for the TikTok platform.

Meaning, that one video produced by an account, can only be limited to one profile, you can’t duplicate them across multiple accounts. Oftentimes the same videos that are downloaded from one profile and then re-uploaded to another, will not work.

This will also apply if you had an old TikTok profile and you don’t use that anymore, but you decided to create a new one and publishing the same content on it. This will not work.

7. Usage of Banned Keywords

There are certain topics that should not be promoted on the platform things as suicide, bullying, Discrimination, hate speech, etc.

Any of these negative words are used in the video captions, the video hashtags, the video text bubbles, or even audio spoken in the post. It will be picked up by the AI and will not be distributed.

Those videos will sit at zero views.

8. Poor Video Quality

Quality of your content, such as what particular device that you choose to film with, a mobile Digital camera, do you care about lighting and its quality? do you care about proper sound?

Keep in mind that similar to a video review(brand new account) that we talked about above when you post a video Tik Tok’s AI analyses the content.

It scraps the visual, and the audio of your content looking for anything potentially objectionable content. 

If the video is very dull, blurry then it will not be able to determine a clear subject and raise a red flag about the content and does not publish to the audience.

Find a complete Lighting guide from TikTok at the end of the post.

Also, like your video, your audio should also be clear as the AI will translate voice into the text to determine the content type in the video.

TikTok is certainly taking steps to improve the safety and security of its community at large but, there are several occasions when the AI mistakenly banned a user or video.

In Conclusion

It is possible for videos on TikTok to get zero views, even if they are publicly available on the platform.

One common reason is that the video’s content may not be interesting or engaging enough to attract viewers.

TikTok’s algorithm is designed to promote videos that are likely to keep viewers engaged, so if a video doesn’t get many views initially, it may not be shown to a wider audience.

Another reason is that the video may not have been properly promoted or shared on the platform. TikTok is a highly competitive platform, and there are millions of videos uploaded every day. Without proper promotion and sharing, it can be difficult for a video to gain traction and attract viewers.
