YouTube is Warning Creators about Drops in Subscriber Counts amid Purging of Closed User Accounts
YouTube is telling its creators that it’s in the midst of deleting closed accounts. Such actions might cause their subscriber counts to fall during this time. The changes, if any, will most likely show up in YouTube Analytics for today through tomorrow.
In order for creators to see which subscriber accounts have been removed from the site, it’s necessary to go into YouTube Analytics and select “See more.” Then, go to “Closed Accounts” from “Subscription Source.”
These types of purges are routine for YouTube. But creators dislike the process because it could cause their channels to fall below the minimum monetization standards.
Heads up: Some creators will see a decrease in Subscriber count today as we remove closed accounts.
We routinely adjust Subscriber counts due to spam and/or closed accounts – learn more about this process here → https://t.co/iY1LV2bHnH
