'X' people are viewing this hotel - the point being???

Can someone explain what on earth the relevance of TA's red notice - 'X' people are viewing this hotel - is? I simply can't understand its relevance to anything.

Surely, it can't be a variation of the tired old high-pressure-to-book tactic! (No one with a grain of intelligence would suddenly say. 'OMG!! I'd better book now because 'X' people are viewing this hotel. 😂😂😂😂😂😂)

What am I missing here?

I think that is the very idea .

Like a bit of a kick up the backside to get you booking !
