Google's YouTube to Monitor For Fraudulent Views

It seems there's going to be a tightening up of video views from scammers fraudulently boosting video views.

As part of our long-standing effort to keep YouTube authentic and full of meaningful interactions, we’ve begun periodically auditing the views a video has received. While in the past we would scan views for spam immediately after they occurred, starting today we will periodically validate the video’s view count, removing fraudulent views as new evidence comes to light.

As YouTube creators, we ask you to be extra careful when working with third-party marketing firms; unfortunately some of them will sell you fake views.

I wonder what Google considers a fraudulent view? I guess paid for views would be highest on the list? Its probably going to sting for a few people if they actually lose a lot of views due to some hole in the algo. I wonder if Google would review a case by case if they took away your views.

Oh, wait. Isn't there already some business about if a page gets more than {some-cutoff-number} of views, it shifts to a more specialized level of tracking?* I kinda think I read it here-- if only because I don't know where else I would have seen it.


* I first said "reviewing", but this didn't quite work linguistically :(
