Old Photo Produce Hits!

Thu May 12, 2005 3:11 am

Guys I am puzzled here.

One of my photos that is in the database for almost one year has produced 5000 hits in one day and is still counting  confused 

How in the world is this possible?
Okay someone is plugging the photo somewhere but 5000 hits and counting!!
It grow from 17000 to almost 22000 hits

It is a shot with the Onur air A300 crosswind approach in AMS.

I know Onur has some problems in AMS lately and is on the hotlist to lose there landings rights.
Maybe it has something to do with that.
I just want to know which website is create such amount of hits in one day.

I am not going to plug the photo here but I think you know which shot I mean.
Please let me know if you find something  Wink

William

Yes Willem that,s the one we are talking about.

Onur air is hot news for the moment in the Netherlands and it has to do something with that if you ask me.

Hello Wim,

I believe Willem had a similar experience with one of his shots
in the database
Wouldn't complain though, it works miracles for your average views
 bigthumbsup 

couldn't "Google" anything to your picture though

Regards,

Marinus.

Yes that's why I expected in the Onur thread which is currently in the civilian forum but to my surprise "nothing there".

That's correct Marinus, I believe 1 or 2 weeks ago one of my older images featuring Aviodrome's deHaviland Dove went from 800 or so up to 2500.
With the help of this forum I found out it was plugged in a topic about A380 windows.  Confused

Willem........ who did not complain about anything.

Explanation:

Your photo was/is the most popular photo on that particular airline.

Therefore, when a large number of people searched for Onur, they clicked on your photo, given that many people request the photo page to show the most popular photos first in a given search.

Great shot, by the way!

There is a fine line between a picture and a photo. The latter seems to be disappearing.
