Very strange stats for this photo, any clue?

It certainly could happen @amayii0 weird that image is the one that gets it, I wouldn't have thought that many people were interested in a hotel bed. I wonder if its been embedded in a hotel search website or something like that?

Thanks for tip @PaulPavlinovich, I haven't found any obvious places where this picture could have been embedded. From me certainly none.

That must be some magical dust from Tinkerbell :)

 

Cheers

As far as I know there is no way to embed an image from Google Maps, if it's not a 360 image!

Anyway, something strange is happening on view count these days; frozen for 13 days, now count seems updating, and I've lost more than 2 million of views.

@PaulPavlinovichObvious this photo is set under Disneyland Paris. It is strange that you do not know how one photo is getting more views.

@LucioVThere are too many ways to reduce number of views count. Do not be surprised! This is quite normal at Maps.

Hi @Rugjer I'm sure Googlers could find out but remember many of the moderators (such as me) are just Local Guides like you we don't have any special super powers on Maps :).

 

@LucioV I'm not going to pretend to know how they do it, but you see photos from Maps on hotel sites and search sites quite often.

Hi @PaulPavlinovich embedded or just downloaded and uploaded on another site? Please, if you find one, let me know, I'm curious ;)

Maybe Russian bots..They seem to get blaimed for every else.
