"Views" Counts
0

4 posts in this topic

A post that I posted well over a year ago, that I occasionally check without clicking on it, shows it constantly moving up in the number of Views. This sort of surprises me since it is so many pages deep. But also surprising is adjacent posts also show increased Views counts, too. This makes me wonder if there is more going on here than first meets the eye.

 

Would these Views definitely be from "human beings" clicking on threads, or are "bots," or even routine NGC maintenance procedures⏤designed to keep threads from losing bytes from computer memory storage "silent data corruption," loss of read/write magnetic coercivity, checksums monitoring, etc.⏤involved in upping Views counts?

Google is pretty powerful for long-tail viewing.

An example is the other day I was viewing an obscure Ramones vs. Sex Pistols punk thread from the year 2005 on an obscure music forum.

So that thread was last updated in 2005 and here I was 12 years later just reading it on a whim. So they got views for that thread 12 years later. :whatthe:

I am pretty sure that happens a lot here on this board which is constantly getting traffic.
