      1. I haven’t a clue. Someone must have created an algorithm to do that, but why? I’d ask which posts were viewed, but that can’t matter (can it?) because no one could possibly view that number of posts in such a brief period of time. You might report this to WordPress. Perhaps they have an explanation.

      2. Well there are only about 3000 odd seconds in an hour & only a handful of Canadians have managed to make 9 & 1/2 thousands views in just over an hour so they have made one viewing each a second. I am very curious so i think i will report it.

  1. NO NEED TO REPORT IT. I am the Canadian you are looking for! 🙂

    If you click on a picture you get one view, and if you click on 5 pics you get 5 views. When the pictures are set on a carousel like yours are, you can just click away and the views rack up rapidly. So I was rapidly clicking the pics for fun, to see if you would notice the unusual rise in views! I didn’t know it was that much though. LOL!

    Mystery solved.

    1. I did report it to WordPress out of curiosity. They just said “someone must really like those pics”. Again this morning i wake up to ‘boom’ 9100+ views. “WORDPRESS! I FOUND HIM, IT’S OK JUST DANIEL SCHNEE EXPERIMENTING!” i hope they heard me. Haha. i suppose thanks are in order. Thanks.

      1. There is more to the story. Yesterday I finally got around to buying the latest album from a band I love named Meshuggah. And for fun today I went to your site to see if you would notice the clicks… at first, but then noticed that by clicking on your photos they made a cool kind of smash cut “video” to go along with the music. No matter how dark or happy a photo is, when you smash cut anything in video it has a particular, jarring aesthetic, which I happen to like. So as I was listening to the album I was also smash-cutting “videos” to go along with the songs!

        So I was having a lot of fun at your site this morning! Great writing, great photos, and a lot of great “videos” for Meshuggah! 🙂
