Actually they will bring you more attention, considering it's usually a subjective choice without any type of logical questioning when someone goes to your page and indirectly views the validity of your pageviews.
It gives you more attention if you have something to show. I used to visit Today page and checked the most popular. Then I've noticed some people joined in less than a month with 1 or 2 deviations and more than 200.000 pageviews. What's the point of that? Nobody would add him/her on their watchlist only because they have so much pageviews. But it's only my opinion. I know I wouldn't. But I also don't add people on my watch list only because they gave me llama, faved something mine or added me to their watchlist. I follow only those people whom I like, or I like their work. So, I'm not meritorious
Whether you'd like to believe it or not, the today page has always been rigged. `RainCookie has had fake views for a looooong time, probably since she had that kiriban going on a few years ago. Not everybody acts that way though, some people may just think 'Wow 100 million views, they must have nice work!' and it's usually in the very back of the head to actually question the statistics.
I was always wondering why she has so many pageviews daily. Now I know But I don't care.
Believe me or not, I never take a look at number of pageviews on someone page. I only check where he/she comes from, because it happened many times that I post a comment on English when person was from my own country . I've learned my lesson.
