I’ve been looking into how my photos are viewed on Flickr. I don’t know if there’s anything to be learned from this, but it’s fun.
I’m not very active on Flickr, but do occasionally enjoy posting an image there.
Flickr keeps amazing stats on your photos like how many times they were viewed or “interestingness.”
I’ve been looking for patterns in the response there to my images and can’t really find one other than folks are interested in things that occasionally surprise me.
The most views I’ve ever received were for this picture of an osprey catching dinner.
The ninth most popular image in my Flickr portfolio happens to be the one that received the most comments.
Three of the top 20 images are simply pictures of gear – nuff said :)
Perhaps someone smarter than me can make more sense out of the stats Flickr provides. In the mean time, I’ll continue to monitor it and can recommend the service as a fun way to show people your work.
