Not to mention that I think the view count on the list might be off - or is only counting certain ones. At the start of the month, my channel page said I had just over 40,000 views. As of now, I'm just under 47,000 (so roughly 6,500-7,000 this month), but on the Top Contributors page, I only have just under 2,400.

Could be those 2,4k are verified views.

When I go to check my profile it tells me that I have over 300 views, when really I only have 6 Sad

I could be completely wrong though lol

So between inactive accounts that get a lot of views, the proxy accounts, and the contributors page likely low-balling the actual number of views everyone's getting (and I did the math, the channel page's view counter is accurate), using that list as a gauge of how you're doing likely isn't telling you the whole story.

It might only be counting actual video views, or exclusive views, whereas your profile pages probably counts profile views or something.

We keep track of many different view count numbers. These include page views, video plays, video completions, ad plays, unique ip plays, among other statistics. We use this data to come up with our values that are used to represent view counts.

Verified views are essentially the hardest to get, lowest number of all the view counts. Actual views are in most cases much higher than this, but it doesn't make sense to allow someone to refresh the page 1000 times to get 1000 views, this is why we use the measures that we do.

What gets you verified views anyways? Would that be the directors?
