    I don't get it... WJSN just came back yesterday with their bop "Save Me, Save You" but it only has 600k views. Well this is kinda okay for WJSN... BUT!!!!!!!!!! nugu groups like GWSN views had much more (i think) the first 24 hours ?? But we all know WJSN is more popular than this groups both internationally and domestic so this would not make sense if we didn't take buying votes in consideration.... this is not fair for wjsn, and it is kinda sad in my opinion.... or am i just a delulu ujung???

    buying a whole MV AD helps with views alot. whether fans wanna admit it or not

    its good to invest in it, because people are more likely to click on the yt video with more views, than less views.

    I mean I don't think you are delulu considering that with GWSN the majority of their views are on their channel and not 1theKs even though when I search GWSN Puzzle Moon the 1theK version comes up first.

    It was probably just to create a talking point like "OH MY GOD *insert group* IS RISING SO FAST" then people check out the song wondering why this group is rising so fast and then they can either be amazed or start thinking there is nothing special to them.

    Puzzle moon is 2 weeks old, cosmic girl's comeback is one day old.

    The growth of both videos is pretty normal, puzzle moon was showing up in recommendations.
    Are y'all really going to do this.

    If you're really asking why, then the answer is marketing strategy.
    If it's just a rhetorical question, then yeah, it's getting kind of lame that these days youtube view counts don't really correlate to popularity or number of genuine viewers.

    Do people really buy views? Like how they pay people to keep playing the video?? I don't understand.

    Fans from their pre-debut promotion, noise around them before, +youtube promotion just from clicks
    Let me just start screaming fake views when WJSN reaches that point too.

    The only way for something to get popular is for it to already start to get popular
    So the beginner has to start from somewhere

    I know GFRIEND did it last year. They bought lots of nonskipable ads on youtube. Must have cost a fortune :eek:

    A lot of people were really excited for GWSN's debut though and they had some hype at first because their name sounded so similar to WJSN and their first teaser looked like their logo.
    And when they did debut, they had a really good quality song and god performances, so I can see why they have so many views.
    If you compare the likes on their mvs, WJSN has 55K likes already while GWSN has 28K likes. So it's not like they are suddenly more popular then WJSN, they just got the debut hype and managed to get more people to stan them from the get go and to re-watch it.

    Even if they did buy views, it's a lot easier to do so then to stream and I wouldn't blame them. And I would like to say to the people who don't think it's fair to buy views, that streaming is just as unfair, because they are not organic views either. Streaming consists of having multpiple appliances with the same mv, so fr the 1 time you might actually watch it, let's say 6 views are counted.

    For marketing purposes.
    Some people would say"Oh, so many views so it must be good/popular so I should check it out".
    That's basically it.

    Here's a video about it
