estimated views on youtube
youtube has made a new way to see your new views for example the last 30 minutes,so I want to ask you what does estimated view/s mean ? I can see even when I watch my own video it makes it an estimated view,does that gonna count it like a real view or what please explain ?

Re: estimated views on youtube
Estimated Views - as the name suggests, is an estimate of number of views your Video campaign could get for a given budget and bid. However, you'll be charged only when a user watches 30 sec of your video or the entire video length (whichever is shorter) but not when a user skips your ad.
If you're previewing your own video within the AdWords interface, you'll not be charged for that, as it is not counted as a view. However, if you happen to watch your own live ad (30 sec or entire video) on YouTube, it will be considered as a view and you'll be charged for that.
Hope that answers your question
