There are a few different explanations as to why your TikTok video gets no views. There is a good chance that you have changed the settings of your video to make it private by mistake. It’s also possible that the problem is related to the network, either on your end or TikTok’s. The following are some additional possibilities:

  1. The content is currently being evaluated.
  2. The quality of the video is really low.
  3. The Video is duplicated 
  4. It has been published on a device that is not allowed.
  5. It makes use of terms, keywords or phrases that are banned.

Aside from that, if the material that you submitted violates the criteria that TikTok has established for its community, you will be shadowbanned, and as a consequence, the visibility of the content that you publish will be greatly diminished.

Another rational explanation may be that the audience did not find the video to be engaging enough. The percentage of video that are seen all the way through is the primary factor that TikTok considers when determining the relative quality of each video. It indicates what proportion of the video has been seen. The longer one watches the video, the more beneficial this ratio becomes.

During the test phase, the video will only be shown to a limited number of people if the completion rate is relatively low. It is important that the content of your video be original and engaging in order to maintain the attention of the audience and encourage them to see the video through to its conclusion.

There is no foolproof method for determining whether or not your appeal will be successful; nevertheless, if the content you uploaded does not violate the terms of service, there is a strong chance that TikTok will review your appeal in the near future and reinstate your video!

TikTok has the right to remove your video if it violates any of the community guidelines. Therefore, before you submit anything, make sure you’ve read the community guidelines!

When your video is removed from TikTok, a message notifying you of the action is sent to you. To file an appeal, find the suspension message in your email and click “Appeal.”

But if it doesn’t work, try this different approach.

  1. Go to your profile after logging into your TikTok account.
  2. Click on the three dots in the top right corner of your profile page.
  3. “Settings and privacy” should be chosen. Select “Report a problem” from the assistance menu.
  4. Here, you’ll find a menu of choices. Pick the specific problem you are having and make your case.

If this approach does not succeed and you need to quickly get your video back up, you may get in touch with their user assistance by email ( or the TikTok official Twitter account.

To create a secure environment for its other users, TikTok implements a tougher regulation on its users’ accounts. The platform often suspends a user temporarily for breaking a community rule, and when the violation is done again, the user is permanently banned. Before TikTok releases your account for a brief suspension, though, it takes some time.

Depending on the violation committed, TikTok’s temporary ban might last anywhere between 24 and 72 hours and up to seven days. Although you won’t be able to go live due to the suspension, you may still publish videos and use other app functions. When your account is permanently banned, you can no longer access it and your followers, comments, and likes are changed to other characters.

These notes were taken from the TOS and other peoples experiences that we have noted in our research. 

Permanently banned TikTok accounts cannot be unbanned at any given moment.
However, it usually takes seven to ten days to hear if you were successful or unsuccessful.

Depending on the type of violation you committed and the response time of TikTok’s support team, account restoration may take some time.

You will quickly receive access to your account if you unintentionally broke any of TikTok’s terms of service.

But if the infraction is serious, it can potentially take more than 10 days to respond.

Your account may not always be restored by TikTok.

Before submitting an appeal or contacting assistance, it is strongly advised that you hold off for two to three days.

This will make it clear that the account is permanently banned rather than being shadowbanned or temporarily suspended.

The following strategy cannot be used until at least 10 days have passed since the account suspension appeal was submitted.

If you want to choose the blog preview image that Facebook uses when posting a link to a page or post in wordpress you need to install the YOAST SEO plugin.

Scroll down to where it says “social” and then choose the image and preview text you want users to see when you post this page on social media.


If you want to avoid the delay in Facebook where you have to wait a few days before Facebook sees the change then head on over to and paste in your URL.

You will then see a “scrape again” button. Click that and after a few mins, refresh your Facebook and try sharing the link again. It will now show the recent changes you made to your OG social preview.

If you are in your root dirctory inside file manager and can’t find the .htaccess file it is because it has probably been hidden.

To unhide your htaccess file. Click the settings button which is usually located at the top right hand corner.



On the next screen you will want to click “show hidden files). Click save and your htaccess file will appear again.

The Data Hydration Failure – some fields may be missing message error looks something like this screenshot below.

zapier error message

This can occur from time to time if you’re unlucky when you have recently deleted custom fields inside your Keap/Infusionsoft CRM. The strange part about this is that it can still occur even though you don’t use any of these custom fields with your Zapier automations.

It is a well known bug that people within the Keap community are aware of. I have spoken to many people that say they are too afraid to delete any custom fields in fear that it might break all their Zapier automations.

Solution #1

Add the fields back that you deleted. Many have claimed that adding the recently deleted fields using the same field name in KEAP miraculously made their Zapier data hydration failure message go away.

Solution #2

Reach out to Zapier support and report your error. I recently had the Zapier data hydration failure message and this was Zapier’s response to me. Pasted below.

I’ve had a look into the errored run for you and it looks like you’re running into a bug here. I’ve found a very similar bug report raised with our Product team and I’ve now added you to the list of affected users to ensure that you’ll be notified as soon as there’s an update.

 While I can’t provide a timeline for when this bug will be resolved, we’ll be sure to be in touch with you as soon as we have any updates. From the report I can see that in some cases Infusionsoft will return the contact details as hydration as opposed to the expected JSON format which causes the trigger to fail: 

Update – Solution #3

I have some extra information since I wrote this blog. I have spoken to a few people at Zapier and have since experienced this a few times first hand. Solution option #3 is to simply wait. The reason you’re getting the data hydration failure message in Zapier is because Zapier’s cache hasn’t updated yet. Say for example you went from 150 custom fields to 149. That is enough for Zapier to get confused and bail out. Sounds crazy right? You have to wait until Zapier automatically updates its cache. This can range from 2 to 24 hours depending where you are in the cycle. Once Zapier recognizes how many custom fields you have, all will be good again and your Zaps will be up and running.

My advice to ensure this doesn’t happen again is to max out all your custom fields. Even if you have no need to, create fields like empty1, empty2, empty3 and when you get the need to use a new field, just replace empty1 with the new field name. That way the amount of custom fields you have doesn’t ever deviate and won’t expose you to the risk of getting the dreaded hydration error message. If you are really desperate and can’t wait hours or days for this error to correct itself I would advise you to contact Zapier and ask that they give you priority and have your account cache refresh.

Hope this helps and gives a bit of transparency into the issue.


If you are using Microsoft teams and can’t see the mouse pointer it is because you were moving the chat window between two monitors. To ensure this doesn’t happen again, don’t move the live chat or live video screen between monitors. It happens to me all the time when I am on a live call and move the person presenting to my other computer monitor. Avoid the temptation is my only advice.

Restarting your computer is the only way to fix this issue. Hope this helps.

This is something that you need to be aware of when creating an Everwebinar. If the user is waiting for the webinar to start and then switched tabs in their browser the webinar won’t auto start when the counter reaches 0. However, if the use is waiting on the countdown page and doesn’t switch tabs it will auto redirect when the counter reaches 0.

Possible Solution

You should have a text message on the countdown page saying that if the counter hits zero and the webinar doesn’t auto play that you need to click the refresh button in your browser. Hitting the refresh will sole the issue.
