If you want a large audience for your pictures, and you don't care too much who is looking at them ..

Don't do a photo blog. Most of my 65000 views are robots.

No, put some eye catching pictures on Google Maps, like I have done over the past year.

Eventually you get an email like this...

http://e-group.uk.net/gallery/data/622/New_record.JPG (http://e-group.uk.net/gallery/showphoto.php/photo/91744)

See, almost 300k views and rising rapidly!

I is famous.

Thanks man.. Most of the views are that top left picture of Petra, taken with the E-M5. I think it was three shots stitched from the 9-18 zoom.

BTW, how are you doing. On the mend? Mended?

Thanks Pete, I'm on the mend. Recently managed a two mile walk without using my crutches. Today I might leave the crutches at home and take my camera instead. Now, that will be progress! :)

Glad to hear that. Does a monopod count as a support?

I've never really found a monopod very useful, but it's a good idea to take a walking pole in case I need support; unlike the crutches it will easily shorten to fit in a rucksac and leave my hands free for the camera. :)

Impressive fame Pete. Does it bring any financial rewards too?

Good to hear you are mending well John. Looking forward to seeing shots from your first camera outing.

Alas no. It just brings an offer from Google to become a "Local Guide" and give their giant servers more information to play with.

If there's that many robots reading photo blogs mankind is doomed, doomed I tell you. :D

That's excellent progress! It took a lot longer for my partner to even walk a couple of hundred yards. She can't walk very far now because of the arthritis in her knees.

Hang on. You are right. How many sites now have that box 'Are you a Robot'. Then ask you to click on which pictures are Shop Fronts/Pictures painted by Picasso/Members of the House of Lords/OR something the Robot already knows :mad:

Or all the robot views are Bender from Futurama looking for robot porn.

Thanks for sharing Pete... I'm still a real visitor to your blog when I find time

I have to agree that the Robot pageviews are becoming a real menace in blogger - stats are completely useless now

Ah, you are a hero. :-)

I feel I should apologise to my many reader that there haven't been that many blog entries recently. I seem to have my nose to the grindstone lately, rather than my eye to the viewfinder...

She certainly has my sympathy, Jim.
