Weird Stats

July 31st, 2020
Is anyone else getting weird stats? Mine say I've had 315 views in the last 24 hours - that's nearly half of the views I've had in the last 30 days (771).

@scrivna Are you able to see if something odd is going on? Thanks

just looked at mine and have same thing going on, 355 views today.
strangely the individual photo views dont account for it

@kali66 @nickspicsnz
Me too! That is really weird - 186 views today and I haven't even posted for nearly two months! Grrr - home renovations taking up way too much of my time and energy. I'll be back next month hopefully.

Me too. I’ve never understood the top rated stat either. My top one goes back to 2016, yet others have had mote views, more comments and more FAVs. I’ve actually stopped looking at the stats.

@kiwinanna home reno is exciting though, hope not stressful!

I'm same Kali @kali66 436 0r something and individual pics not accounting for it

@yorkshirekiwi yes I noticed that about my top rated ones. I don't often go to my stats but one day I did after I hit the top of the top twenty only to find my top rated photo was a couple of years old and nothing there changes. must be broked 😊👀

my stats are the same, way over 500 views - maybe the site has been hit by a bot?

@annied 70 more views since i commented, and the views today are all really old photos viewed once each, different list to last time i looked, so it seems like @koalagardens might be right, is something trolling the site looking at all the pages??

@kali66 @yorkshirekiwi @annied @koalagardens Something’s certainly been busy on the site, that’s for sure.
@kiwinanna Exciting to have big house renovations going on.

I see these blips all along, including this one. I think it's just a part of life on the internet. It is interesting to see this one was across the site, though.

My views were over 10x my 30 day average, but Favs and Comments were in line with typical.

Last time this was happening to people, it was because there were various individuals reposting the links on their own websites or on Instagram or Pinterest. If it makes you uncomfortable, you can make your historical images restricted and allow those followers you trust to still see them, but prevent them from being viewed by the public. You can always restrict your images a week after you post or at the end of a month etc. Then people can see them initially, but you can protect them more against this kind of thing. I don't know if that is what is happening currently, but it has been an issue before, so just a thought.

Often see my images from. 365 on a Google image search so I suspect it's just bots. Not much you can do about it.
July 31st, 2020
same here... my daily average is about 65 views based on current monthly average... yesterday was over 550 and today it's at 235... if i subtract these from total monthly views the average would go down to 41 per day... so.... weird!

my photos are so bad nobody's trolling at my albums 😂 i haven't decided yet if i like that or not.

@lsquared @casablanca @rjb71 @northy Looks like it's happened to a few people, but I'm back to normal today so Ross must have found a way to stop it again for now.
@casablanca Thanks for the suggestions :)
@summerfield Oh no, your photos are excellent. But that's why I was surprised to see so many views on my stats. I wondered why on earth that many people would want to look!

@yorkshirekiwi @koalagardens I don't look often either and my top 10 stayed the same for a couple of years. But 6 of them have changed in the last month or so, so maybe it's working again. :-)
August 1st, 2020
@nickspicsnz i dunno... my stats have gone back to normal, but the single view of random older images is continuing... very very odd!
August 1st, 2020
@casablanca how long after posting do you the change privacy settings???
August 1st, 2020
@30pics4jackiesdiamond Sometimes at the end of the week, sometimes monthly, if I am noticing an issue then the frequency increases.
