" ... A pageview is each time a visitor views a page on your website, regardless of how many hits are generated. Pages are comprised of files. Every image in a page is a separate file. When a visitor looks at a page (a pageview), they may see numerous images, graphics, pictures etc. and generate multiple hits. (http://www.opentracker.net | no date | HERE) ...

Some must think we do all this just for our own amusement. Well, you're not too far from the truth. We have three readers who have been faithful for the duration of MooPig Wisdom from 2006 to now. We have no idea who they are, but we keep the ruse alive for them.
However, it turns out our page view numbers are down now as compared to our page views two years ago. Upper management here at MooPig Enterprises set up a task group called the MooPig Page Views Department, who have advised them of the down turn in page views.
Google has provided the blogspot for MooPig free of charge, and as yet MooPig Enterprises has not paid for any of the related amenities of their generous offering. If we did have to pay for this, well you know, it would be like paying for music today, not happening.

On the other hand we do pay for our wireless Verizon sudden-link that is not cheap.
Upper management asked the Page View Department to propose a solution to our waning status. They immediately summoned their chart making buddies and came up with the stuff blogs are made of.
As you can see we are in a decline. How do we amp up our page views? They said, "We tried to measure by running articles about trends, MooPig Trade Show Department :: "Reviewing CES 2013" -- HERE, ... and by evaluating articles that have out shined all the others, HERE -- At the Message Leave a BEEP, Please...."
Our newer post has 26 page views and 5 comments; -- the older post has 31,306 page views and no comments.
We think this photo is why the older post is viewed so often:
This photo is lifted from that year's Google Images, 2009. Back then we did not know how to attribute sources for photo's. Since then we have learned how to do that. But we don't have the technology to find the source, so it is unknown for now.
Only browsers can find that sort of needle in a haystack. Google Images has once again answered the SOPA-type conflagration of making the Internet less free, by changing formats of how its images are played with.
We searched ... "alligator, girl" ... in the new Google Images and found the photo above. It led us to this site HERE, in PhotoBucket, where it cannot be copied. That is not where that photo came to us from in 2009. This is just the work of another blogster, like us, who tagged this image into his collection of pirated photos. And, we are not sure how that is going to pan out when all the Internet's Mother Lovin' Images are sorted out for the web indexing crowd.
We are certain that MooPig Enterprises does not know how it does what it does. It is a mysterious enigma. Our readers, all three, God bless them, would be sorry if we were gone.
What we don't expect anyone to care about is, whether we find all the sources for every thing we quote in MooPig Wisdom, or in the other fifteen blogs we are associated with. But we will make our best effort at calling out all sources. We suspect no one is doing research that uses MooPig as a source.
Therefore, we will conclude that our purpose is to be viewed, and page views will be our metric for now.
MooPig Wisdom is a developing thing, and it is tiny. If it grew over time, we would be amazed.
