- Odd flickr views.
Never really look at my stats on Flickr these days, but I’m wondering, with the new layout, what exactly constitutes as a view? Do you still need to click through to it? Or could it have been on an Explore page with 6 thousand people having simply scrolled past it?
Still struggling with the new Flickr myself. It’s just not as functional as it was.Posted 4 years agoampthillSubscriber
Doesn’t look like you’ve been explored
but some nice shots. I like the Canoe in the rapidsPosted 4 years agometalheartSubscriber
There’s definitely something borked with Flickr stats.
The other day I uploaded photos and according to the stats I had no views yet click through to the individual photos and it was registering around 5-7 views each.
And Sunday I got a photo favourited and an e-mail to tell me yet it didn’t come up in the stats (not even a view). I think they just make them up….
And some of the referrer searches are a bit weird: one of today’s was a ‘man and his chicken’…. 😯Posted 4 years agograhamhMember
They can’t have done any decent testing or user checking – everyone I know who uses it preferred it before…
err no there wasn’t..
They selected and random group of users and forced them in to the new interface. The overwhelming opinion was “THIS SUCKS”, but they went ahead with the change any way. Come May 21st they force the change though, big post on the flickr help forum regarding the new changes. Over 3000 posts saying that the new designs suck change it back. The response from flickr/yahoo, “tough s**t if you don’t like it **** off.Posted 4 years ago
