What's Your Average Views Per Picture?  
User currently offlinePepef From Finland, joined Oct 2002, 440 posts, RR: 9
Posted (11 years 5 months 3 weeks 20 hours ago) and read 4801 times:

I photographed and posted my first aeroplane pictures less than two months ago. I was wondering what would be a good "average views per picture" to aim at.

Also, if I have for example a 100 views on a particular picture now, does it go up over time, or get lost among the 280.000 other pictures.

And lastly, should I just relax and take pictures, and forget about the number of views part? This is difficult since I've uploaded them for others to see in the first place.

This is my latest picture/re-upload:

Anyway, thanks for your input, and it's nice to be a part of this forum finally. Now where did I put my newly acquired password?

Yup, that's the one!

But as you want to know...
24 pics, 39669 views, on average 1652.9 views per photo.

Hi Peter

You can quickly see the averages for everyone with >100 photos on the site by using this link, if you don't know it already (and leaving it time to load)

http://www.airliners.net/about/

And yes, the hits do gradually go up with time, although increasingly slowly...

It has 2132 hits.

My next one is just over 1000, followed by 730, and because I shoot only GA it drops off rather quickly from there.

Here's my stats....

You currently have 13 photos in our database.

The large version of all your photos have been viewed a total of 44663 distinct times.

On average, a photo of yours has been viewed 3436 times.

So basically you have two diametrically opposite viewpoints with regards to stats. You can submit a great number of images and have a low views average, or you can only submit the cream of the crop and have a high average. Of course what we all dream of is a high number of images AND a high average. And that takes time, patience, hard work, and a little luck.

Have fun, and welcome to the club at A.net and remember the most important fact with regards to stats....... every single one of us started at 0/0 photos/views.

Given the large number of photos I've got I'm happy with my stats. Hard to believe that there's so many people out there stopping by airliners.net each day!

But what the heck I'm pretty new at this and still pleased to be accepted at all so I'm not complaining. However if you don't mind a shameless plug.... Smile/happy/getting dizzy

With a 3437 average views (It's gone up by 1 since my first post) I was just wondering what the highest average is on A.net?

Can Johan post or let us know what the high averages are, and who has them. Would love to check out their work?

Thanks

The "most successful photographer" would be the one with the highest number of photos AND the one with the highest average hits. If my only photo was the one that's at 4800 hits, then I would have a pretty impressive average... but it's just one photo.

So that makes Garfinkel the "most successful photographer" of the ones who have posted here. But as for overall most successful photographer, I suspect it's AirNikon, Andrew Hunt, or one of those other guys.
