I used to average about 130 - 140 views per day on my page - but a couple of weeks ago I had 1000 + views per day for a few days straight, and since then its up around 400 - 450 views per day, everyday.

Can anyone shine some light on why that is? I didn't post anything at all.

While looking at this image: akhiris.deviantart.com/art/The…

I had seen this: hazardousarts.deviantart.com/a…

as a thumb, and became curious of the deviation entirely. In seeing that it was a collab with an artist that I was also watching, I looked onto your page in order to find out of what more you had. In being amazed, I decided to watch you. So, with your popularity, it can be as simple as someone being curious, or of collabs being done with others that people watch, or a good mention.

It's not a problem, because all I had done was speak from what my mind and heart saw. ^^

Yeah sorta random  to be honest ,largely depend on how accessible the information is , What I means is like for example someone might run across your work Chun li then they repost the link on a street fighter blog that popular this double the traffic for awhile then the traffic dies down again ,you get kinda anomalies like that

Same thing happened to me, and I was a bit surprised since I didn't do or post anything special when it started. Maybe it's just that people are coming back from vacations?

I think,  your page might get promote or spotlight somewhere         e.g. KOTAKU.com  , reddit  ,   Tumblr , etc

Lets face it.DA is becoming less and less popular with tumblr and instagram taking over.A lot of artists have moved over to using their facebook,instagram especially tumblr to post their artworks.I might have to join tumblr as well.Most of the prominent artists I follow now post on tumblr and surprisingly when I check their tumblr.It turns out they update tumblr more with their latest works and their gallery even contains artworks I don't see here.Also,they are very active and discuss more on tumblr.

Seems like DA has also noticed.It may be an error or just a strategy to get their users back.

I am suspicious to a fault, especially of statistical anomalies.

Premise: a dA Senior Member (who has been contributing to dA's coffers for a significantly long time), has a dry spell of artistic inspiration or showing signs of putting out anything new, suddenly has a sudden spike of significant increase in views (a source which expresses interest in the artist's work), followed by an steady increased following.

Unmentioned: That the Senior Member who has had a sudden spike and steady increased flow of viewers, suggests that either A) the Senior Member, contrary to not posting any new work, signs in never the less to notice such anomalies, or B) the Senior Member has NOT been signing in to dA (which suggests lack of interest in their dA account).

I posit that it is therefore possible that dA, being an organization that has interests in it's long term members to continue and feel their association with dA has a return that benefits the Senior member, thus dA would "kick up" the page views as a shot in the arm.

If Arvalis said was true, then everyone would be asking "what happened?"

Well, my dad always used to say "figures never lie, but liars always figure." Basically he was saying to use my own common sense as a guide.

I forgot to mention in my posit that dA would likely be watching either the repetitive signing in without posting new work by it's Senior Members, or the lack of signing in by same, and thus would feel inclined to make their Senior Members feel their account with dA was "profitable".

It is also possible, that since ANY website knows what each person's IP address is, that dA can evaluate a member's viewing their own page, whether they sign in or not.
Whether a website takes advantage to use that information or not is another matter altogether.

Part of one job I had was to evaluate statistical probabilities and hypothetical issues. That sort of job, I feel makes me legitimately suspicious and unfortunately slightly paranoid. I'll also point out that while it is possible that what I said is true, it is just a SWAG (Scientific Wild Anatomy'ed Guess) like anybody else's.

People find stuff of fandoms and what not, and word spreads. It's unpredictable I know. I did a picture of a number of sonic characters as TF2 classes, and whenever it's posted on a site like "Memebase" or "Halolz," I got a spike in page activity.

The same happened to me, a consistent jump from 200 a day to 500. Similar to what arvalis said maybe they've changed what counts as a "page view" (though deviation views are their own thing), likely counting gallery/etc views as page views rather than only the profile page.

tbh your work deserves more exposition. You have skills that every single artist should be aware off.

dA is now counting pageviews from everything on your account aside from the deviations themselves.  Which means it counts people clicking through your gallery pages :)
