I saw the same boost for one of my clients in Oct. Views doubled, but conversions and traffic remained the same. My best guess is they started appearing in the 'People also search for' discover carousel on the GMB profile of a big competitor. I believe these impressions are also counted as 'Views'. These are nowhere near as visible as other impressions they're tracking, so I try to pay little attention to this metric.
We're also seeing a spike in views for many customers, starting around Sept 25-26 up till now. However, like mentioned above, there's no spike in the conversion rate. Could it be a bug in the reporting process?
