Hey everyone, I'm a producer who is just beginning to expand my fan base. I've uploaded a few remixes that I've produced and have gotten some success from a few blogs. However, in the past few days, I've been noticing some strange activity on one of my tracks.
This track had around 1500 plays after 4 days and for some reason is now at 4,110 and growing by 2 or 3 more every few seconds. I suspect that very few of these are real because there's no reason for my track to almost triple in plays when no new blog has featured it and there's almost no user interaction (no change in the number of comments, reposts, or hearts. I have no use for fake plays and number boosting stats and am not responsible for this. If anything, it's damaging to my artist reputation because it looks like I'm paying for plays.
What can I do to prevent this from happening or stop this from happening? Is it just a potential bug on my track or what's going on?
