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.

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

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.

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,...

I've done this on a few hubs. Maybe it's a good idea because if someone does an image search, the photo with text relevant to the content of the hub can stand out amongst the competition.What do you think?

This may be a one-time glitch, but I thought I would make mention of it in case it is something that can escalate. One never knows with those web gremlins!I published a hub earlier, a review (don't want to post the link to promote the hub). When I publish, I click through the various things to see...

One of my Hubs has one page view today, but 14 slideshow views. Does that make sense?
