I’ve been using flickr for a while now, and while it’s very good there is one thing that I really don’t understand – how it counts total views.

Today I added a picture that garnered 25 hits, but the total views went up by only 3! How does that work?

Looking around the web for information on the way flickr adds up the total views I find that I’m not the only one who is confused. Does anyone know?

UPDATE: so the views total on the page isn’t related to your pictures in any way. Guess that explains that.
