Views Dramatically Increasing?

Hi, I have noticed a big leap in views the past week or so.

I was wondering...anybody else?

It's been random, maybe one or two per night, but nothing drastic, at least for my stuff. It's the usual visits from Sunnyvale, New York, Hollywood, etc.

Christmas shoppers is my guess. I see a big leap every year at this time. Hardcore Internet shoppers know they have to get it done early.

Those bot visits should be broken out... they are meaningless for any kind of control purposes like trying to figure out what images are popular.

 

I saw a big leap when contest views began showing up. Nothing other than that.

I don't monitor my views daily, or even weekly...but some of my recent images seem to have a pretty high view count, considering the length of time they've been up.

I go lengths of time not looking at visitors but lately I have been checking more to observe the effects of my marketing efforts.

Peak hours...it's about a visit every ten minutes now.

A lot of bots are blocked by the site, we don't see them all.

"I saw a big leap when contest views began showing up. Nothing other than that."


I forgot about those views, and there have been those showing since I've entered a few more contests lately.

I've definitely had a lot more in the past couple weeks - tis the season.

 

Angelina Vick

Hmm. Forgot about the contest views.

Tis the season indeed. My daughter is already starting to plot for Black Friday.

No not seeing an increase. I use the sync Tweet thingy and find that I get less views than if I would

Tweet them myself...trade off to me to have that Canvas preview of the art on Twitter and maybe

that is what the real folks looks at now. What ever sells is what I hope I am using but I love that

canvas preview. I would rather tweet them myself when I add them because I get about 10 more

views per piece. I have nto paid attention when I have thought to add art to contests. Would sure

love to have the view recorded off the sale page and activity page too. I hope we get that too!

I started out using the auto-Tweet/FB feature, but thought it might be better if I was able to edit the tweet and add some specific hashtags to it, although it doesn't provide the image preview when you do that. However, looking at my sales history, there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of difference in reach or appeal to perspective buyers for my stuff so far. I might go back to the auto-tweet way and see what happens.

Greg just wait a day or so and Tweet it again with the the hashtags..

My views have slowed down lately. I must have fallen into disfavor with the bots.

visitors what are they ?

You've got momentum! Sales lead to views lead to sales lead to views lead to sales... :)

lower to avg. usually my main page will get 200-300 hits a day. lately it's like 50-100. but hoping they are coming back soon.

@David- Visitors are those being from other planets...that don't announce themselves because they have no idea how unpredictable humans will handle it. ;)

Retweeting with hashtags is a good idea. I always do the auto tweet.

Thanks Benjamin! Yes, I think I am gaining momentum. Funny though, most of my sales have less than 50 views, but I know people have to look in order to purchase.

Hope they back up for you Mike.

Dave, offer them bribes...cookies and candy...etc. ;)

I'm getting more bots from Europe and then more hits from Europe. I don't enter contests much so I don't need to peel those off. I don't automatically tweet when I upload, I think that bores followers. I, too, add specific hashtags to tweets and have gained followers and RT's from them.

 

Andee Design

2 Years Ago

I get more re-tweets and follows from the sync Tweets with the canvas preview

than I do with my tweets with hashtags I do myself.

Well my views/sales never been slower...:( even when I was a "free newbie" here I never had 25 days with no sales at all...anyways it always has to be the first time :( too bad it's just after my first renewal...

 

Floyd Snyder

I actually never look at the views. I would if they didn't have the bot views in there.

I only look at sales. That is the real thing for me. The last two-three weeks have been a bit higher then average.

I launched a paid for click ad campaign for the Cell Phone covers. Sold one. Big woo! lol

 

Andrew Read

Can't say I've pay attention to the number of visitors, sales have gone again though...I was selling at least one a month up till September. lol.

 

Robert Woodward

Mine have increased about twofold. Combination of bots and real people, but mostly bots.

 

Francie Davis

2 Years Ago

Mine have increased big time for me. I'm not good at promoting, but I've been doing some lately........at least trying to learn how. I was shocked that one of my photos had 59 views in a just short time. Odd for me, but I like it!!!

 

Greg Jackson

I've noticed two new visitors within the past two days, and both are from Germany (locations of Hurth and Gunzenhausen), but don't know if they're bots or people.

 

Amanda Stadther

2 Years Ago

After I tweet an image I get about 30-50 hits and they have increased in the last week or so. Unfortunately I suspect most of them are bots from Germany, Beverly Hills, New York, Seattle etc.

For the past few months it was pretty slow but have noticed recently that veiws are picking up!

 

Paul OToole

I have found views are down but it may be the subject matter that buyers are looking for.

 

J L Meadows

2 Years Ago

My views haven't gone up, that I've noticed. The reason? I agree with Paul. I think buyers might be looking for seasonal stuff now. I saw two wonderful autumnal photographs on the sale page today.

 

Benjamin Yeager

2 Years Ago

I'm up to about 200 views per day across all of my work. Posting more work and getting more sales will bring in more views.

 

Rich Franco

2 Years Ago

My views are down or flat. I'm up to 940+ images now but the views haven't been trending up, 40-60/day is the range, which I thought it would have been higher by now,with increased number of images,

I made a sale last week. Hope it's a trend!

 

Carol Cottrell

I know where to go to see my visitors views--Behind the scenes. But I don't see anywhere on the page where it shows the daily amount. Do I have to add up the daily views myself?

 

Benjamin Yeager

2 Years Ago

That's right Carol. I just make a note of my view count every two weeks and then compare. It helps me know if I am growing my audience.

 

Carol Cottrell

Thank you, Benjamin :)

I've noticed mine have been going up in the past week or so, not just bots, but views with small town names.
