actually i was the dummy. i bought a fiverr gig for "high retention" views. 9000 views delivered in 1 day. I didnt think too much about it (obviously), until i checked the analytics: average view duration is 0.03! then i come back to look at the gig. yeah 9000 high retention views in 1 day (actually maybe 12 hours). well, i guess someone can have 30-60 threads running at the same time. while at the same time, that probably requires 30 ip's as well? without a big customer base, that's probably going to be a loss?
