The number of Views on my images are different than the number of Views in my Advanced Stats. How are Views calculated?

The number of Views in your Advanced Stats show genuine engagement metrics, which is a more accurate representation of the community’s engagement with your photo. There are multiple ways an image can receive a View on 500px:


  1. A photo will receive a View when it appears in a user’s Following Feed. As the user scrolls, the images they see in this feed will receive a View.
  2. A photo will receive a View via Discover, Profile and Galleries when the image is clicked and expanded.
  3. A photo will receive a View via Discover, Profile and Galleries when the Like (heart icon) button is clicked from the photo thumbnail view.
