Pageviews...

Sun Feb 25, 2007, 10:10 AM


:heart: A big hug to all my friends here :heart:

:thanks: And a big thanks for all your comments and favs, allways appreciated ! :thanks:



:bulletgreen::bulletgreen::bulletgreen::bulletgreen::bulletgreen::bulletgreen: Pageviews... :bulletgreen::bulletgreen::bulletgreen::bulletgreen::bulletgreen::bulletgreen:

I see a lot of people here on dA complaining about the fact their pageviews number doesn't increase fast enough, asking themself and others how they could improve that...

In the same time, I've seen some *really* poor quality galleries (no links, no names, but trust me...) having an incredible number of those pageviews...

Well, i've been according some importance to that pageviews thing, and it took some time before I realized it really wasn't *that* important. After all, it's just a *volume* indicator, in fact a kind of counter and nothing more... It does *not* reflect the quality of the work, but only how many people have been there.

I really pay more attention to comments/features/FAVs from artists I respect for their art, than to the pageviews number my gallery can reach.

So please, go on doing your thing your own way, be yourself, and please do not enter that pageviews race, or it will pervert your mind, soul, and art...

Well, it's about Art, not pageviews, thats right. But pageviews are an indicator. It shows if some people are interested in your photos or are at least interested in the artist behind the photos.

Of course there are people showing off shitty photos, nude but no artistic nude who get 10k views within a few days. But thats not the target.

And since only a hand full of people write comments to my images, I do look for the pageviews from time to time. Just to see, if anyone cares...

I'm not really sure that the pageviews number reflects if people care on not... :?

But, like you, I'm sure about the comments =)

Laurent --> thank you for commenting... ;)

well the views on the picture might be an indicator, you have a point when you mean those views. But the page views on the main page a basically crap numbers since they are counted for everything that gets hit on your page ( journals, polls, etc..)
I just look away when I browse dA and see those crap shoot naked butts , but see some people are just freaks and suck up that shit ..so of course those pictures get hits and they get their PV ... same with the kitty / doggie style crap... no art in my eyes ..but the cuteness suckers are out there and boom one more hit and a comment "how cute" .... all this has nothing to do with art !
I am not saying that you naked butts and such animals can't be art, but on here 90% of what is thrown up there ..just isn't !

... damn now I get a slap from Dave for my rant #10001 ( if he counted right )

Well, I don't have polls, but, anyways, I thought it was only for the profile...
the statistics are much better information...

I think, we don't have to argue about those pics... there might be a thin line between art and crap, and there will always be a discussion where to draw that line, but most people here will have the same opinion as you have...
at least I do...

rant #10001? who the f... cares ;)

yup its dA is about ART hence the name deviantART !! and not about numbers !! I wished people would eat that already and stop that circus with counting the damn numbers, I think this is rather pathetic :D just my thoughts though, but seriously I am getting annoyed when I see journals in my inbox on a daily basis that say " 1000 pv " "200 pv" 10.000 pv etc etc ... blah ...show me some art people because I am here for art ... I only care about numbers in my bank account :giggle:

that was a rant lol :D

so whats up Laurent :kiss:
