Why Your TikTok May Be Stuck at Zero Views

Why Your TikTok May Be Stuck at Zero Views

Many users, when starting to promote on TikTok, encounter the problem of "zero views." This can cause doubts about the usefulness of the platform, leading some users to leave it altogether. In this article, we will examine the reasons why your account or a specific video on TikTok might not be receiving any views, likes, or comments.

The main reason for zero views is often non-original content.

If you contact TikTok support and ask why your videos are not getting views, moderators often respond directly - non-unique content. If TikTok detects that your video has already been uploaded by someone else, it is likely not to show it to viewers. And if you try to artificially increase the number of views, this could lead to a "shadow" ban of your entire account.

 TikTok algorithms are constantly improving and are very good at recognizing copies. To fix this issue and start getting views, you need to significantly alter the video. For example, cut the video and add parts of another clip or images. Adding a few filters is usually not enough. 

When a new video is published, TikTok typically provides it with a few hundred views within the first few hours to assess engagement and interaction. If the algorithms like the results, the video will start gaining more views. However, if the video starts losing viewers' interest and they skip it more often, the views can quickly drop off. Your video needs to be unique and maintain the viewers' interest.

And that's not all...

If you use TikTok to drive traffic to various legal or illegal affiliate links, you may face constant bans. A ban can be just as much a reason for zero views as non-unique videos. Changing your account or even reinstalling the app does not always help – you may need to reset your phone to factory settings, use proxy servers, and engage in other time-consuming activities. If a non-unique video is denied views, it's usually only that video. But in the case of a ban on a video or account, views may be missing on the entire device.


To ensure your videos always get views, follow the platform's rules where you upload them. Your video should be unique (or at least well-uniqued), and your account or device should not have serious violations. Follow these recommendations, and good results will not be long in coming. Good luck! 😉
