    SEE THE FOLLOWING. THOUGHTS ANYONE?

    YT TIMMY (Google/YT employee) Made the following post 2day
    on the YT forum:



    An important message from the YouTube Team:

    Video view counts reflect the YouTube community's interests and the
    grassroots popularity of videos. We periodically make changes that
    allow us to display consistent view counts and accurately reflect a
    "real" view based on video consumption, video streaming and spam
    filtering. Unfortunately, a few people still try to artificially
    manipulate their video's view counts. Some people game third-party
    view counts as well. That can make things unfair for everyone.

    Recently, we found spamming issues associated with the view counts on
    a small number of videos. The inflated view count number on these
    videos will be frozen until actual views catch up to the published,
    artificial, view count. Also, a few people have commented that their
    view counts are updating more slowly. Occasionally the speed with
    which views update changes -- sometimes it?s faster and sometimes it?s
    slower. But we are always working to make sure that the final view
    count numbers are an accurate reflection of the community's interest.

    I believe your real views are still being counted, it just hasn't equaled the public facing counter yet.
