    Just came across this. Not sure if its a new tactic against fake views or what.

    [h=2]Frozen view count[/h][FONT=Arial][h=3]Why is the video view count stuck?[/h]Sometimes you might see that the video viewcount isn?t showing all the views you expect. Video views are algorithmically validated to be fair to both content creators and advertisers and maintain a positive user experience. This process assures that the video views are [B]quality views[/B] and discards the [B]low quality playbacks[/B].
    To make sure that all views are validated, as view count goes higher, they update less frequently and might occasionally freeze above 300 views to assure quality view count. This is the normal operation in YouTube videos.
    If you've noticed that a video has had the same view count for awhile, click one of the options below to learn more.

    Videos always stick around the 301 mark, but that message is defiantly new, and its not surprising that they verify them better now, time to just change your strategy again.
