Has something changed? What counts as a view?

  • On a related matter, my listings for the past few days have consistently been showing 1-3 viewings for most items, a considerably higher view rate than usual for my little store. Something amiss?
  • The same phenomenon is occurring on the "other" venue - one item on a 7 day auction has over 50 views.I also am more used to 4 to 10 by closing time.
  • At least one large online photography site changed the way views were tallied when they began accepting advertising a few years ago. Our daily views skyrocketed and became meaningless. I assume the increase was a means of maximizing the site's advertising revenue.

  • How do you get the count listing for your store?
  • Wayne, request an API key and I can provide a script to run. Im working on developing a command-line toolkit - one of those adds up my views.
    I have a hipfast script that creates a listing in less than a second, others display lusting info adjust prices, topic, qty and so on. I use hipclone to replicate an existing listing and so on.

    My store is txphl if you need to message me. You can find my other details at the TSDA site (Texas Stamp Dealers' Assoc.)
  • You may be able to get it if you download your store and add up the nb_clicks column too.
