In the night of the 28th on 29th of May something weird happened.
All of a sudden my YouTube views went down and so did the number of subscribers.

All of a sudden I had no views and as mysterious as they had gone, they appeared again.
Also the 21st of May had no views and I gained 0 subscribers on the 26th and 27th of may.

Loosing a couple of views and subscribers is nothing out of the ordinary since YouTube does a cleanup of all the robo views and subscribers.
Those were not legit views and subscribers anyway.

But to confirm my suspicions, I looked at my DJ channel.
  • Same thing: 21st no views, 0 subscribers on the 26th and 27th
I looked at my gaming channel
  • Same thing: 21st no views, 0 subscribers on the 26th and 27th
I looked at the channel of a coaching client
  • Same thing: 21st no views, 0 subscribers on the 26th and 27th

This isn’t a coincidence.

I see 2 possible scenarios:
1) YouTube’s website had an outage on the 29th of may and wasn’t available to get any views, I was on YouTube noticed it, I was on YouTube uploading a video.
More likely is:
2) YouTube’s reporting system has in issue.

This happens once In a while.
In either case, you didn’t really loose subscribers and views.

I think they are just temporarily gone.
I think views and subscribers are still recorded, just not displayed in YouTube Analytics.
If view and subscriber numbers ever come back: who knows.
Often YouTube fixes these issues quite fast.

Either way: nothing to worry about, because there is simply nothing you can do anything about it
