I recently noticed an anomaly in my app store analytics on Appstore Connect.
Despite previously having no downloads, there was a sudden spike of over 10,000 downloads in a single day.
However, that's not the main concern.
Upon checking the "Product Page view" statistics, which Apple defines as:
The number of times the app's product page was viewed on the App Store on devices running iOS 8, tvOS 9, macOS 10.14.1, or later.
I observed that on the very day I had these 10K+ downloads, there were only 3 product page views.
How can there be over 10,000 downloads with only 3 product page views?
