I had 144 views yesterday, and today I have 115. I don't understand how that has happened? When I counted them up, I actually have 151, has it just swapped the numbers?

Hi guys,

My channel lost almost a 1000 views compared to this morning. has anyone experienced something similar. I only had 7000 to begin with so I doubt that it can be related to common explanations such as "views from the same IP".

Curious to hear if anyone experienced something similar.

Thanks!

Im seeing people complain about this on fb groups. Youtube is probably removing views that arent real, there might have been a glitch that caused views to be shown higher than they really were, or they were bots' views.

Yes, there was a lot of over-reported views in the past few weeks, so I suspect that's a correction.
