Check how many people viewed your image on Google Plus!

Did you know you can see how many people viewed each one of your photos on Google Plus? It's super simple to check, and can actually provide some powerful insights regarding different aspects of your Google+ page or profile's performance.
How many people viewed your image on google+
The view count stats should appear a few minutes after you upload the image. All you need to do is click on one of your images and right at the bottom of the image you'll see the view count. Here's a screen captured example of an image uploaded two days ago (click to view full screen):

Google Plus Screen Capture of View Count Statistics

In many ways this is similar to the view count of videos uploaded to Youtube. 

After uploading a video, the uploader can analyze how well his video is performing based on many factors such as the view count, likes and comments the video receives.

As the Google+ platform develops we might be seeing more advanced built-in analytics tools, which offer more in depth analysis for each post. Perhaps it will be somewhat similar to the Youtube Analytics tools.

Why else should (or can) these stats be important for you?
1. You can analyze different parameters related to the type of images you upload and the related +1 / shares it receives.
2. You can get a general idea of how many people see each image you upload.
3. You can check which of your images is your 'all time most viewed' image.

Note that you can check statistics for any photo on Google+, not just your own photos! After clicking on an image in a Google+ post, the view count will load within a few seconds.

Above your profile cover image you'll find a button which allows you to switch your page view between Yourself, the Public or a Person from your circles.


What do the different views show? 

Yourself - All editing features and page management features are visible to you.

Public - See your page as the public (people who haven't circled your page) sees your page.
