Travel Forums System Talk Who is viewing my blog?

I'm sharing the link to my travel blog with a handful of friends. Yet my view numbers are high, like 1500 for older entries!

Are other people seeing them? How? Not just from the "all posts," right? By searching for a destination or key word?

???

There are a handful of people who who look at pretty much all blog posts - also with the purpose of featuring particularly good entries. Older blog entries can indeed be found through search or through their destinations, if you've tagged them as such (e.g. one of your blog entries was the latest one posted for Iceland, with that page linked in the sidebar for the Iceland wiki page.

However, the majority of those 1500 views are probably caused by the crawlers used by search engines (google, bing, etc), who automatically follow all links on the internet to make certain their search index is up-to-date - and then every month or so revisit everything they've found previously.
