Majority Of Views From Just Three Cities

I'm still new to this website and I'm trying to figure out 'views', specifically how the majority of them can come from just a view cities, New York, Beverly Hills, Mountain View, California and some city in China. Plus, why does the system seem to log some views multiple times? Just curious...

I think those are 'Bot locations. (automated web-crawlers). I get much the same.

Great. Robots dig my art. Do they have any money?

'Bots are penniless. They work long hours for nothing. I think they hardly ever sleep, but when they do get a day off they drink Sterno in dumpsters, so no dispsoable income to speak of.

They probably don't have any walls either. So where would they hang anything anyway? Lousy bots... My audience...sterno drinking bots and my mother - better think of another retirement plan soon.

I had the same question a few months ago, Karyn, with the same cities you mentioned. Yes, they are bots and the good thing is they are picking up your images and artwork for the seach engines. From my understanding, that is really a good thing, so more people can find you. I still have a lot of them showing up as my visitors, especially, Beverly Hills, CA these days....darn, I was hoping Paris Hilton was purusing my site! HA!
Best to you,

Views do not equal sales. I know...its tempting to believe that but views do not equal sales.
The majority of my sales have had less then 100 views.
