  • Sudden surge in a photo view

    I the last week or so, I had a lot of views on a couple of my photos. A few hundred on each. But they were not brand new in the database, from last year.

    Any reason that there would be such a jump in a 24 hour period? I do not link my photos on social groups.

    A bit confused why the jump.

    I've had it in the past aswell and it really could be anything, In some cases photos have been shared by other people on other platforms which have contributed to the spikes, in a few unfortunate cases aircraft photographed have been in incidents, accidents and/or have been featured in the media but really it is case by case and a number of different scenarios could be the cause.

      I'm down for some sleuthing. Can you give some examples? I'll see if I can find the source.

        I had the same thing happen to this photo.

        A few thousands views within a day a few months back.

          I think in this case your photo was showing up on Flightradar24 and this generated a lot of interest leading to photo views.

            As stated by Andrewc75 - it would be useful with some example photos. We regularly see links to photos shared on places like Reddit and social media which definitely drive up views.

            Thanks,
            Laurence

              Well this first one was a post accident shot which I suppose maybe the link was passed around. The aircraft, according to flighaware is still somewhere at Montreal in a hangar, not Air Canada's. https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/9549485

              The second is nothing special but the other day had +300 hits. Odd. https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/9408127

              Thank you for chiming in.

                The second one squawked 7700 (emergency) 6 days ago. This is probably the source of your hits:

                  First one I couldn’t find. Possibly passed around privately via email/chat, perhaps at the airline? Depending on the level of analytics available jp.net crew might be able to tell where the traffic is coming from but may not be willing to release the info.

                    Yes - this looks correct. Seems that quite a lot of the views came from Flightradar24 mobile apps.

                      We have quite limited analytics unfortunately but I did find the photo to be linked from another aircraft photography based forum that has .net as its domain and begins with the letter A.

                        Thank you for the reply. My social media is limited to Facebook, so I sometimes don't think about the many other avenues.
