Why Won't my TikTok Post Show Up For Others

You have been putting a lot of effort into producing videos, but somehow they do not get any views, 

It is painful and discouraging for many new creators, but do not worry.

In this article, I’m going to provide a solution and the reasons why TikTok is not showing your videos to other viewers. 

We will eliminate those reasons first and then apply our technical fix to get the views which I will also explain over here.

Let’s Understand and remove the problems first.

Why Won't my TikTok Post Show Up For Others

The Content-Type is banned or Flagged by TikTok to restrict

TikTok has Flagged your content as spam. 

Someone has falsely or mistakenly reported your content as spam.

This could be due to sharing content excessively with other people to get likes.

If you are getting 50 likes from one person, TikTok recognizes it as a bot and marks your content spam.

This issue is commonly found if your mobile device or associated Email address is previously used on TikTok and your account was marked as spam by TikTok.

Solution: the best advice is to check your recently posted i.e in the last 48 hours and see if they have received any views.

Ideally, you should be posting close to 3 videos every day when you start your journey on Tiktok. 

If you see consistently low or few views then your account is marked as spam.

You can remove this bann by following this step-by-step guide.

TikTok’s Community Guideline Violation 

Another major reason for not getting any views is breaching the TikTok community rules. 

TikTok is an emerging short format social media platform, and they are competing with big giants like Facebook, Instagram & Snapchat.

In order for TikTok to get more popular, they have to provide a safer yet funny environment.

Though to gain quick views and popularity, people end up using abusive language or posting racist content, gender attacks, and so on.

Some of the other formats that TikTok’s algorithm simply kicks out are posting gross medical procedures that involve blood sighting, discussion about the pandemic, and hate speech.

Your content will not be promoted and might as well get shadowbanned by TikTok. 

How to enable TikTok’s profile view hisotry

Too many Videos on the Same Content-Type.

If you keep sharing similar videos, using exact keywords and titles, TikTok’s algorithm recognizes it as spam and stops showing it to the people. 

Similar content tends to get less attention from people and often gets ignored.

It is because, after a few seconds of video views the user can recognize the video content

And swipe up to watch the next video.

It gets your video very low audience retention and TikTok downranks your video.

Video Quality is not better as other content creators

Since Tiktok is maturing rapidly, its demand for quality versus quantity is also increasing. 

It means you have to produce high-quality content in order for it to rank on top. 

As the number of users grows, more and more professional people are joining TikTok to use it as an effective marketing tool. 

Checkout Gender viewership of your TikTok posts

These professionals are way ahead in producing quality content compared to a regular teenager making a mobile camera video. 

The good quality video includes a hook in the first 2 seconds, popular trending music in the background and the video is not longer than 15 seconds.

If you have viewed your profile and re-assessed your content and there is nothing wrong with your content, and you are still struggling with views, you might want to try out the following fix.

TikTok is based on its algorithm, it judges the video quality based on viewers’ reactions and responses to the video such as likes and shares.
