I wonder sometimes about thes #’s for example:

http://lumberjocks.com/projects/71820

in excess of 40K views in 8 hrs where nothing around it is anywhere near, are there that many yisitors to this site in 8hrs.

40K and 3 comments, it seems so out of place.

I suspect someone has “learned” to view the project (multiple times) while they are NOT signed in in order to jack up their own numbers in hope of making a “Daily Top Three” rating. FWIW, when signed in you are not counted in the ongoing count tick.

I tend to agree with Mike. Isn’t there about only 44,000 people total joined? Something wrong there, for sure.

Don’t be too quick to judge.
Here and here are two by the same member. One has unrealistic #’s and the other not.
I suspect it may be a random glitch.

Interesting that Celticscroller had six projects posted over two days, and the one basically posted in the middle is the one that had the 10,000+ hits. All the rest are relatively low.

Here’s another one, although maybe within the realm of possibility. I think there is a glitch somewhere.

You’ve had over 100 views on this thread, and most of them probably took a look and added another 100 to the count.

Agree with “shipbuilder”—glitch somewhere. I noticed the same thing with “excessive” number count in first few minutes of a project being posted several weeks ago, but that was only one project while it appears to have happened with four (maybe five) projects this time. Hope management or board monitors are checking things out.

Shady indeed. What is the “not signed in” loophole? I would hope views are tracked on a browser cookie/IP basis.

another possibility to toss into the mix—some people have their own websites and blogs and post some of the projects on these sites, asking the readers to check it out etc. There’s a whole other audience brought into the mix.

I’m really really flattered that that number of views might be possible on a piece of mine.
I think glitch somewhere is way more likely.

some people have their own websites and blogs and post some of the projects on these sites, asking the readers to check it out
I was thinking that might be the case MsD, but one of the projects is mine, and I certainly haven’t done that, so perhaps a little more evidence for “glitch”.

I have had a few Top 3. I’d like to have more. It happens, or it doesn’t. I can’t predict what folks will like. If I could, I’d not be unemployed & struggling.

As for the high numbers, they look suspicious. Knowing databases, I’d say it is unlikely it happened inside LJ. More likely affected by an outside influence(not necessarilly from the author of the named projects). If one were interested, they could compare against the views of blogs or forum topics. However, no matter what… in 10 years(or less), it won’t amount to a hill of beans.

That same project got the daily top 3 before there was a single comment. the number of views does not make any sense whatsoever. It really does not matter unless it puts dinner on the table or folding money in your pocket…
