Pageviews by danlev

As of today, we've updated the way Profile pageviews are counted for deviants and Groups.

Many years ago, we expanded the pageview counter to include not just the front page of your Profile, but also the Journals tab and the Prints tab (but not individual Journals or Prints). We mistakenly never expanded the count to other areas of the Profile.

This has been inconsistent for quite some time and we haven’t been transparent about what exactly this counter included.  

Starting today, the pageview counter will begin including pageviews to all sections of your Profile, including:

  • Gallery and Gallery Folders
  • Favourites and Collections
  • Other profile subpages: Activity, Badges, Daily Deviations, Critiques, Gallery Stats, Polls, Wishlist

We felt that it was important to fix this inconsistency to properly reflect traffic to all deviants’ Profiles. If an artist gets a lot of traffic to their Prints shop, this should be reflected in the same way it would if an art appreciator had high-traffic Collections.

We see the Profile Page in its entirety as a single entity and we want the pageview counter to properly reflect traffic to it regardless of the entry point.   

Note that this change only applies to Profile pageviews and not deviation views or any other statistics.

I like this :iconkakashithumbsupplz: Kinda wished this was done a long time ago, but I'm glad this change happened now! x33
Now with this update I wish I could've reset my pageviews completely :nod: :lol:

Okay thanks :)
Hmmm, this doesn't work for my profile yet?
You probably won't see much of a change other than pageviews being slightly higher during the days after this Journal was posted.
