    Can someone please explain something.............

    My photobucket account is set to private but the monthly hits keep going up, what does this mean? last week it was 140 this morning 870 and now 900. Can anyone look?

    oh, and there's nothing dodgy on there btw lol

    Its soooooo easy to bypass the private album thing on photobucket, think most people know how so thats probably why :thumbsup:

    No I think its something to do with the fact that if you post a pic with a PB link, everytime someone views that pic, say for instance on here - it counts as a hit

    Had a look at my account which is also set to private, & it says the monthly hits figures are :

    [COLOR="Blue"]This is the total number of times someone has viewed your digital content through direct linking. If you have four images or videos linked from your Photobucket account to a webpage and one visitor views the page that is four 'Hits'. Four visitors to a webpage with only one image direct linked is also four 'Hits'. Viewing your images directly through your Photobucket account does not add to the 'Monthly Hits'.[/COLOR]

    So it's where you've posted a link to a pic, say on here, & someone has viewed it on that website not through photobucket direct, if I'm reading it correctly ? :thumbsup:
