    As topic title, is possible that Vagex is giving me as referrals Facebook and Twitter?

    I've created a channel containing short info videos that sponsor a site a the end, they are quite engaging, but not so engaging to be shared on FB and Twitter... :eek:

    Nope, it is either ViewTornado or YTNuke. Or, of course, they got shared on both these sites. It happens sometimes... (the weirdest videos get shared there, do not think it is weird that yours might have)

    Actually SpK it could be Vagex, I had them giving me Facebook, Twitter and Related video views at one point. Specifically when I was using over 30 second views.

    Well, since I still haven't tried ViewTornado nor YTnuke yet, I guess my shit is being appreciated and shared organically... :eek:

    Sorry man, heres an example:
    Code:

    Pretty much where the Facebook and Twitter spikes are, is where I was using 60 second views. And as you can see when I stopped using it they all just cut out. :)

    YES, Vagex uses both FB and Twitter as referrals...

    That totally makes sense, as I'm using 60 seconds views as well. I wonder how they pull this trick off....

    Thanks for the insight anyway!

    Although Vagex has been using referrers for quite some time, FB and Twitter referrals were confirmed several weeks ago when Vagex was feeding all its' members Fake Mobile Views. Those referrers are now used in both of the viewers and, at least in the case of the addon, its done via Javascript. ;)
