I am just wondering if it's better to allow your readers to view images as a slideshow or not, I've had some slideshow views, but, does allowing that, take readers away from your hub. I know Hubpages counts those views separately, but does it encourage readers to then just leave your hub. What I mean is, does this shorten the length of time people stay on your hub and increase the bounce rate, leaving after just looking at the images. Has anyone tested this?
I don't go out of my way to do slide shows. What is a good idea is to place the pictures as thumbnails which (from what I've seen) allows the reader to just click a thumb nail to see the next picture and still stay on the hub.
However you still get adsense clicks from slide views...
Hi WryLilt, Ok, I was just thinking that readers might simply view the slides then move on, not staying to read the rest of the hub, I had placed an image in the first text/image capsule at the top of the page and saw that I was getting lots of slide views, then thought , that's maybe not a good idea, it might encourage them to just click to see the slides, now I don't put images there at all., better for adsense anyway. I will try using thumbnails and see how that goes. Thanks for taking the time to answer my question WryLilt.

I have seen in most of the hubs about how they are keeping thumbnail images even after a list of photos. for example: if we have 20 pics, how we can keep only 5 or 6 thumbnail images on above the slide show.
