How come some questions on Stack Overflow reach a huge number of views in a couple of minutes when some others keep a miserable number of views in the same amount of time?
I wanted to post a screenshot but I don't have enough reputation. So I will describe the scenario:
- User John Magnolia with 303 reputation asks "Opencart modify SQL in getBanner function" with tags php, sql, opencart and got 0 votes, 0 answers and 2 views after 27 minutes.
- User Goz with 24.3k reputation asks "Converting an FFT to a spectogram" with tags c++, fft, spectrogram and intel-ipp and get 7 votes, 6 answers and 2k views in 28 minutes.
- User Abid Qasem with 6 reputation asks "Auto complete in ComboBox windows forms" with tags vb.net, winforms, autocomplete and combobox and gets 0 votes, 0 answers and 4 views in 29 minutes.
If the vb.net tag has a small number of followers, php still has 23k+ when c++ has "only" 17k+. I won't even talk about the number of followers for the three other tags of the 2k views question. So how come? Can it be related to the reputation of the guy asking?
I read the post Why the difference in the number of views?, but it's not relavant because in my case there's nothing specific about keywords or tags, and this one, but this second one deals more about "after a couple of days", here, it's a couple of minutes...
