First, I didn't even know this was a thang.

I'm following 2 listings by the same seller. Someone just posted in the comments, for 1 of the listings, that the seller is adding google analytics code twice, doubling the page view numbers, and this also drops the bounce rate number.

I checked the other listing, and sure enough, the site is doing the same.

Now, someone mentioned that it shouldn't matter as all that matters are the unique views.

I think it matters, what do you think?

Also, could this be an honest mistake? Is this common, I don't want to go accusing someone of massaging the numbers if this could be just a mistake.

    Google is smart enough to count those views as unique - or this technique would be exploited by a lot more scammers
