Fortunately, this year, somebody—Brady Haran of Numberphile—have fully investigated and finally discovered how and why videos are stuck at 301.
Occasionally the speed with which views update changes -- sometimes it’s faster and sometimes it’s slower.
But we are always working to make sure that the final view count numbers are an accurate reflection of the community's interest.
By looking at reports from these individual servers, You Tube engineers can detect suspicious patterns in the data.

not artificially boosted): An Update On Our View Counts - You Tube Official Blog Video view counts reflect the You Tube community's interests and the grassroots popularity of videos.
We periodically make changes that allow us to display consistent view counts and accurately reflect a "real" view based on video consumption, video streaming and spam filtering. Recently, we found spamming issues associated with the view counts on a small number of videos.
