    I've been answering lots of private emails today for clients all over the US and Canada and happened to jump over to my Goggle Plus page. I have never noticed the view count before and was kind of taken back over how many views my Goggle+ page has received. Is 1.6 million views a lot on Goggle+?

    I would like to know if I'm reaching this kind of audience or if Goggle+ is just making me think I am. Has anyone studied this yet? I think it is kind of new....

    If Google does place some importance on this view count - how can we increase it?

    I build my own web hit counters.

    You can not believe what Google and speed test tell you.

    If they pay you for the hits, take them.


    If you take to many hits you may get high.

    I know one thing, we could do without some of the attachments and links that track, that you are putting on this forum.


    Sorry , But they suck.

    What links track? I just add images to my posts... How do I know if they also track? Does it say in the url? I build showers Don - I'm no Rocket Scientist.

    I am no Internet Police for this site but just see what is on it.

    Seems like the "count, goggle, goggle+, meaning, view, track, links, rocket, images, scientist, suck, posts, build, showers, putting, alot, thing, google, counts, understanding, forum, attachments" Just a few tags.

    That may point to google, What would you think ?


    Carry On.



    Have Fun.

    Don after the first post 11 days back my new view count is 1,614,258 up 34,873 in 11 days or 3,170 views per day....

    Best guess is October 6, 2014 for Two Million Views.

    I wonder if the high view count is because of the blog page of mine. I've been finding that traffic from the UK, Australian and India is way up.


    Terry have you had a spike in Aussey traffic the past year....

    all links and images track.

    an image will 'track' when it is loaded, and a link will 'track' when it gets clicked.
    this is sort of how google and other ad-driven sites work,
    it's done with the host/referer components of an HTTP GET
    and ofter other parts of the http-content-header like with 'COOKIES'

    the effect with images is roughly equal to an 'impression', and a click is a click :)

    this is all kind've related to the 'SEO' thread in the jokes section.
    you guys may be accidentally? directing traffic :)

    they way i understand SEO is like this
    word-of-mouth from one person is great
    but if you want to get to the top of the top, you need to have a billion word-of-mouth advertisements linking back to you from their sites :)

    on-topic side note,

    if you google "shower curb", you're not even on the first page
    but if you google
    "shower curb austrialia"
    you're top dog.

    That thread was no accident.

    I was trying to drive traffic to Terry's site. And I used Spam Email as the content.

    I find this concept very humorous.

    I have a couple more tests going on in the joke section. Loterry and spam email links

    My blog gets almost as many views from Australia than it does from Canada. I would imagine the blog posts here on Terry's site covering the Aussey code has tripled his Aussey traffic....

    We really should cover all the countries.

    August 20th 2014 - Goggle Plus View Count John Whipple - 1,851,472 views
    June 18th 2014 - 1,646,928 = 204,544 views in 63 days or 3,246 views per day.

    View Count is up a bit this past two months. Closing in on two million....

    Estimated 108 more days or roughly December 7th, 2014..... That's a little behind my first guess. Looks like the view count is slipping a bit.

    Better find some more interesting topics to rant about! lol

    Smashed the two million mark all ready. Sitting at

    2,221,121 views as of Wednesday
    2,238,471 views as of today

    ballpark 5,783 per day Nearly double the average daily view rate of a few months back.

    Seems to me that the view count rate is climbing higher every month. There is an outside chance of three million views by Christmas now not two like I first thought.

    1,979,105 views current view rate ???

    I was looking at my goggle profile and found today that the view count took a massive hit! lol Now, why would a Goggle+ view rate drop?

    I wonder if they audit the numbers they give out?
