    I am really wondering how is this even possible.

    How can you get more than 10,000 views on your item in only 3 days?

    I listed basically the same product even for a bit cheaper and got ONE single lousy view.

    Getting views shouldn't be hard you can even buy views but I wonder how is his/her conversion rate. I have seen people promote esty stuff in Pinterest and I guess that's one way to get some good traffic. But getting 10k in 3 days maybe its more like paid traffic some sort of.

    Because he's probably advertising on his site and social medias.

    There are quite a few people that boost/purchase views on their listings as well. You can talk to a lot of different Etsy sellers on their forums and they will tell you the same thing I am about to tell you. Views don't necessarily result in sales. I have had days where I have gotten 300+ views only to get 1 to no sales and days where I got 13 views and 6 sales.

    It's really about the targeting of those viewers. I would be much more worried about that then how many views your listing has. Although having more views can result in more sales if you are targeting the right people and have quality products in the specific niche you are targeting.

    Reverse engineer what he is doing and try to replicate it and then try to better it, find his social media accounts and see whats working for him.

    just check the main keywords rank in etsy, it's easy to rank better in etsy onsite search

    what you're seeing isn't mean that the product was listed first time on 7 oct 15 mate. thats mean there are someone who's buying that product on that day and the seller renew to listing their product

    If you RT an etsy listing tweet that counts as a listing view... boom, buy 10k RT's on one etsy listing tweet, there is your big views

    It's still possible though that he really got that traffic from regular Etsy searches.
    That's the kind of views I was getting a month or so after I launched.

    would the use of a scraper be of any help?

    If you want similar results go to Fiverr and pay people a couple bucks for a Pinterest or Instagram mention and see if that's what boosted them.

    If their content was picked by an authority female blogger it may have put it into the spotlight so go easy with it until it either happens naturally with what you do or that extra promotion.
