since 11 pm, I have had 120 views on one item

it sold five months ago

I have great stuff that is ignored, yet this piece of crap, and its 2 twins, have over 2000 views between them, And theyve all been sold for 5 months

there is much weirdness afoot

Pinterest traffic, perhaps?

I still get views from my duster (pictured left), which sold earlier this month.

it is half pinterest, half direct view

I am thinking of how to take advantage of the traffic
I am out of mint green wood
how would it look in pinterest if I put a mint blue heart in there and renewed sold?

I didn't know our sold items could still get views.

Posted at 3:41 pm Jul 17, 2012 EDT

You can look at all of a shop's sold items but minus the price. I've had several views of sold items and even an order.

Posted at 5:40 pm Jul 17, 2012 EDT

Sorry. I said that wrong. As usual. I knew you could see the sold items. I just didn't know the views counter still counted them.

Posted at 6:29 pm Jul 17, 2012 EDT

OK. I checked out a few of your sold sections and the only one I can see views, admirers and treasuries on is the sold item Alex posted. Why can't I see them on other sold items? Sorry if this is a dumb question. I'm just curious and most of the time can't see the forest for the trees.

I'm not sure why we can both see the stats from my link, while only I can see them when we separately look back through my listings.

this mint heart has had over 600 views since it sold.
