View count on gallery
« on: October 17, 2018, 07:02:43 AM »
I noticed the views on the images in the gallery is pretty high. A couple of thousand. Is the traffic to these from the users here or is it from the outside? And was there a peak in the amount of viewers once?

The reason for that is spider bots who scour the forums regularly cause the hit rate on the gallery image to go up.

I think they are enjoying the gallery more than the users :P
Until the next time...

Sometimes people post an image to the gallery and then link to it in a post.  That could possibly raise the image view count.  Every time you open up that thread to read updates, up goes the count.

I figured it out. I noticed the images here are on the google image search! I did a search for voxel worlds and my screenshot from here showed up. There probably are more image search engines using images from here.

And sorry to reanimate an old thread, but this was bugging me :D
