You may currently be experiencing an issue where the comment count on a video's watch page is different from what you see in YouTube Analytics. We're updating our systems to ensure consistency, so the numbers may have recently changed for you.
If your comment count decreases, it may be because some comments violated our rules about spam or other policies listed in the Community Guidelines. Learn about comment moderation and removal.
What's the correct comment count?
In the watch page, the actual comments loading on the page is the accurate number. The number that you see listed above the comments field on a video's watch page may not currently be accurate.
