Over the last few weeks I've uploaded a few stories which have had widely different number of views, in particular the last one. Now I'm curious. What is a 'view'?
The stories might be crap, that's fine. But how do you know if they are crap without reading them?
Some stories were multiple pages, the ones with more views had more pages.
So does anyone know what adds one to the view count?
- Reading any page
- Reading all pages
- Reading the first page
- Reading the last page
If reading any page adds one (per page) then a 3-page story (that someone reads to the end) would get a +3 count, rather than a +1 count.
Also, what happens if the same person re-reads a story?
- It is only counted once
- It is counted every time they read it
I write this because my story which has the highest score (as I write this) has the lowest view count. Is it the day of the week? Is it the Olympics? Is it that some descriptions encourage a lot more people to read a story than others?
