    Anyone else here see this? More importantly, does anyone have any suggestion around this latest Google BS whack-a-mole-on-viewcounts-for-god-knows-what-reason?

    From YTDavid: UPDATE ON VIEWCOUNT ISSUES
    hxxp://googledotcom/support/forum/p/youtube/thread?tid=6293dd71292f0157&hl=en&start=80

    Hey everyone,

    Quick heads up that you may notice starting July 11th, YouTube view counts have not been consistently updating for many videos. Please be assured that any views not currently updated are still being recorded. We hope to have any view count discrepancies resolved as soon as possible, but note that it may take a few days.


    An update of what has occurred:


    --Currently, views are being logged by our system but they are not surfacing properly in public areas such as the Watch Page or Insight.

    --Insight and YouTube Analytics are missing some viewcount data from late July 11th onwards.
    --Public viewcounts are missing some viewcount data over the same range, though it may not correlate to the missing Insight info (ie: though both incorrect, public viewcount may be different than the Insight numbers)
    --We will be trying to process the data that was not reported during this outage and we will make adjustments as needed.

    --Lastly, there should be no impact to your revenues from this month - AdSense reporting and earnings were not affected by this issue.


    We apologize for the inconvenience, and thank you for your understanding and patience as we work to fully resolve the issue.
