I found an article in my country about Youtube's inappropriate method to make money, and the narrator "seems to be" saying ( Excuse me if I heard incorrectly and in case if you can not listen to ( due to a border problem. ))

"This is the first story I've read this morning, I know it's quite devastating. I think it sort of, reinforces the idea that we've all suspected, which is that these companies found a formula, --- a sort of, to get eyeballs, make money, the formula sort of came with a pretty significant baggage."

I think the word "eyeballs" falls under the definition of this page,

  1. (Marketing) marketing slang (plural) viewers of a television program or website, esp seen as potential customers, advertisers, etc: The site's goal was to get more eyeballs for advertisers.

Am I wrong or correct?

Thank you in advance.

  • I don't think that this can get any better definition than that in the dictionary. – James K Apr 16 '19 at 10:29
