Don't count publisher views in the total views statistic, at least not every page load on the same computer
I noticed as I was preparing some new panos that each time I loaded the page, my view count incremented. It doesn't seem fair that the person publishing a pano should be logging new views each time they load the page. Shouldn't the publisher of a pano be excluded from increments to the view count? Especially while logged in.
I'm pretty sure that's the way flickr works, or at least they don't increment the view count from repeat loads from the same computer.
We plan to implement your idea. Thanks a lot for sharing it with us.

Yes, it is poor when your own views are counted. This needs to be fixed! Anyway, the statistics are depressing! Comparing them from 360cities with the rates I get from Street view, there is a HUGE difference. The party happens there, this here is the graveyard for panoramas!
Some clever marketing could do a lot .... Having 50 percent of my panos at Ghetty, i never have earned one penny with them.
