One of my Hubs has one page view today, but 14 slideshow views. Does that make sense?
I've noticed this too, a difference between hub views and slideshow views. I think there are 2 explanations.
1. Slideshow views update more quickly than hub views.
2. Maybe someone clicked on photos individually, rather than clicking on one then scrolling through all of them.
I don't know for certain, but I think this happens when people search images; from what I understand our images come up in searches, and people can go straight to the image from the search. I used a picture from Wikimedia Commons of an ancient Egyptian hieroglyph, and my hub wasn't specifically about that (though related), but I got views just from that image.
Good to know and that would make sense, since you don't always see the whole page when you click on an image in a google image search. The photos are all things I took myself though, so I can't imagine they're that popular. Thanks for answering!
I woke up one day with 92,556 slideshow views overnight, sadly they do not count towards Ad program earnings
People have speculated that it is indeed the pictures in your hub coming up in Google images or something, this apparently still has benefit, as a certain quota of these will then click on your site/hub from the image..
haha that's insane! I hope some of them clicked through to your Hub at least... Thanks for answering
I believe they are monetizing slide show views now. They were piloting putting ads on them, anyway.
On your profile page, there is a way to see all the images in your hubs without going to the hubs themselves.
Probably image searches so they can copy them.
On a side note, I was stationed over there by you in Gunzburg years ago. Very nice area. Is the 512th arty still over there??

I just checked one of my hubs where I give people the option to click and view the FULL size picture and now it looks like we have this slideshow that gives you about a half size view of the picture, if that. I know for a fact that the image was bigger because it's a screenshot of my profile,...

How do I have 10 slideshow views today for a hub that had no visits today?

If you have more than one image you HAVE to have the Slideshow.You used to be able to turn it off in the 'settings' tag.It ruins the appearance of the image with the black message.Please allow authors to opt out or shift the horrible black link to below the attribution etc.Authors spend a lot of...

Hey Hubbers,If you've not taken a look at your statistics page, then I advise you do so. It appears as if Staff has completely eliminated the slideshow views as a statistic?If this was indeed the case and it wasn't moved elsewhere, then why wasn't the community told about it?If it was moved to...

Do total views = Page views + Slideshow views ? or do they only count as one?I have 2208 hits today but also 1222 slideshow views, so do I essentially have 3430 hits? or does it not work that way, are slideshow views infact already counted within the page views but simply to show how they have...

I am experiencing an overall average off 66 percent less page views per day, for seven days versus a week previous and for the past two months. Such a huge drop in page views makes me think that Google has tuned up something again. I do know that I don't have the time and energy to keep...
