Flickr statistics?

I know there are a few e-Group members with Flickr accounts.

Have any of you noticed a significant increase in your views recently?

Looking at my stats from yesterday, I had 752 views, despite not uploading anything anywhere!

Re: Flickr statistics?

Not recently, but occasionally I see this sort of jump for no explained reason.

Re: Flickr statistics?

Not me Janet. If you do find out the reason I would love to know. I'm still trying to work out the 'secret' of increased Flickr views!

Re: Flickr statistics?

Sorry but this is going to sound really dumb but how do you get the stats you are all talking about?

Re: Flickr statistics?

Has Flickr made more information to web crawlers so you get lots of web spiders extracting data into search engines.

Phil, when you sign into Flickr on the menu bar click on You drop down menu shows Stats third up from the bottom.

Re: Flickr statistics?

For me the third one up is "recent activity" and it only shows total views on each image individually. Cant see how to get the graph vs time as Kev posted.

Re: Flickr statistics?

These spikes are often from the use of your shot (assuming its a single shot) elsewhere.

if it is multiple shots it is probably someone looking through your shots.

Then on some days a bunch of people trawl though your shots.


Also the stats are not always correct.

On the recent activity page you will see a box on the rhs containing a small graph. Click on the graph and you will get your stats.

Re: Flickr statistics?

It does go up and down as others have said.

I confess I'm probably going to get out of Flickr as my needs have changed. As I signed up to the PS CC deal I have a Behance account now so I'm going to switch to use that as it gives more of what I want and a more "project" centered approach. When I've got a larger body of work for my first project I'll start populating.
