Something i have been wondering about for a while, is it normal to fake page views here?
By fake, i mean getting a auto reload page through various IP to increase the page view number.
i Seen some profiles on the today page with 10 thousands of views every day ( i am not gonna mention which profiles i refer to ) with very little views on deviations.
Some i saw a while back had a average of 100 views per deviation and 30 000 views that day.
Logic is missing.

I like seeing my page views because it is fun to see the different number of visitors depending on images i upload, and how active i am, but i don`t see the point in faking it.

Oh, and i am close to my 8000 watcher now! I am totally :iconicameplz:
Somehow 8000 was my "goal" a while, i have a thing for the number 8.

I am thinking about setting up a email account for commission work and for people and galleries e.t.c to contact me. yep, i will do just that.
mhm, i am so up myself i actually demand people to want to buy my work :D


All feedback, fav, comments are very appreciated.
I reached the point where i don`t have time to reply, but i read them all.
if there is anything you want me to answer, just drop me a note.
Thank you for supporting me :heart:

Oh, Im sure people do it.
Apparently pageviews without any actual people viewing your page is.. good? :/

I think it also counts views from the owner of the profile. My views are likely a bit deceiving because of this, but I don't really care much for views anyway. :XD:

I wonder sometimes if the pageview counter counts one's own views.
I view my page alot, simply cos it's easier for me to access stuff like my journal, submit a deviation, etc. through that way.
If there's a competition for something though, you can bet on it that people are going to find a way to cheat.

faking page views is sad, I agree.

I've seen artists like that before that I had a feeling were somehow faking views because things just didn't add up.

I don't really see the point of doing that. :shrug:
