This looks odd: Massive number of views

This may be correct but it seems strange that a thread with 34 replies has got over 36,000 views. That is the sort of number that a long-running discussion might get.

Where can I buy a hang drum?

Fistly, you do know that thread is from 2009, right? That means it has had 6 solid years of internal forum and external Google keyword searches, clicks and views.

Secondly, why the heck would you even care enough about this to make a thread?

I guess the six years may account for some of it

About as much as you did to check the thread and reply. I'm just curious really

Re: This looks odd: Massive number of views

If you sort by descending hits even only on that forum you'll see others with a lot more, including one with just 11 replies but 191,314 hits! I never knew golden retriever puppies were so popular.

But yeah, it means very little, as others have pointed out, and is likely to just be a result of google searches, as evidenced by a 2014 thread on Cleaning Nespresso coffee machines with 110,873 hits.

+1 view, but I still am not sure what a hang drum is

Re: This looks odd: Massive number of views

I guess people who are interested in them would just google Hang Drum and this thread would pop up so they take a look at it. It's on the first page of a Google CH search.

Re: This looks odd: Massive number of views

Do not believe I commented on the thread. Have viewed it a few times and is one of the threads I have subcribed to, so anytime something new is posted I will take another look at the update.

Not sure yet if I have an interest in Hang Drums, but I do have interest in Hand Drums, something a bit different.

Re: This looks odd: Massive number of views

Well Daniel used to play hand drums before he discovered the HANG.

I'm surprised you are surprised DeepP- there is a huge following for this new instrument, and many, like me- get really hooked on it's sound from the first moment they heard it. I know I am. Discovered only in the last few days what a massive following Daniel Waples has- almost a cult- and I have to say I just can't wait to see him 'live' here- with a shower of meteorites in the background. I'll probably buy a HANG myself this year.

It wasn't the overall number of view that surprised me as much as the ratio to the few posts.

I was impressed when I saw one being played in Lucerne last year
