The number 301 has become synonymous with a popular YouTube video that is about to get a lot more views, however you’ll no longer be seeing that number on even the most popular of videos. YouTube has announced that they will no longer be halting the view counter at 301+ while they validate views, instead confirmed views that they are confident are from real viewers will be instantly counted and added to the view counter, while suspected views will be held for review and added on later.

These new changes means that view count will be more accurate, but will still be behind the real count while YouTube separates the real views from the bots. What do you guys think, will you miss the 301+ view count?
