Why does my view-count get revised downward? Does MY bounce-rate affect my CPM/CPC?

This is actually a multi-question: I'm sure we all saw this infographic (or some variation of it) lately [attached.] Showing that half of all traffic is actually non-human: bots, web-crawling etc. Quite often my most popular hubs will register views in the double digits - but the next day their count has been revised into single digits. I was wondering if HP is somehow accounting for the fake traffic (which I think is fine,) or if there's a bug at work affecting my view count. My other question is if my own bounce rate (78%) affects my AdSense payout, or does google take HP's overall bounce?
