Views Glitch?

Options
Is there a glitch with eBay at the moment.
Just looked at my listings and all the "views" have reverted to single figures.

    According to a message on my dashboard they have changed the way they show views and instead of showing all of them now just show the last 30 days. I suppose it will help with seeing what items are not worth re listing if people stop viewing after an initial rush.

    I have an item listed (went live 24th April) that yesterday was showing 70+ views, today 10 views.

    Just found the announcement about it on ebay though have not heard about it previously.  Apparently, several different  bots are showing up as "views" though not actual buyer views.

    Why has it started in the middle of the month? Surely it would make more sense to start it at the beginning along with the 30/31 day roll over of listings.

    Everyone rolls over the 30/31 days though at different times of the month, so there is no logical time to start a new scheme. It isn’t linked to when sellers get their new ‘allowance’ , it’s all very random.
