because on youtube they had to implement a new system to make sure there are no fake views to pad the stats. In result, the views are updated later on
as the system verifies each view is indeed valid.
You will notice views stop around 300 on new videos until the views are verified and the system catches up.
No conspiracy on that front. sorry
