This has probably been asked over 9000 times, but here it is:

What is the best way to get watches on your FA page?

Thanks, No Problem, and That's Not What I Meant in advance.

Best ways to get watches:

  • Draw lots of free art for people
  • Draw porn
  • Draw with a reasonable amount of quality
  • Whore yourself out and fav and comment on everything
  • Draw porn

Naw you can draw porn you just can't look at other peoples. (If I remember right)

I can attest to how a couple pieces of porn I drew (well, as far as I'm willing to go with it in public) got more views than my other pieces. And yet less views than just filling out a meme. The three big things for attracting views seem to be porn, memes, and hilarious clever awesome stuff (like the "Shaun of the Dead" character as a cat).

I recommend improving your art quality through lots of free art and challenging yourself to do new things - memes are good not just because people flock to them, but because they force you to try new things, so your skill will improve. But I think the best thing you can do aside from that is just be yourself. Draw stuff, don't care about watchers. If they like your stuff, they will show up. Seeking attention and trying to be popular might backfire.

Make a journal implying you like to... ah... "play" with dogs. That will get you LOTS of attention. >:3

I can fix it!
Leave lots of comments (good comments, mind you, not spam), and have a crop of a really well-drawn picture that you drew as an avatar. The well-drawn avatar is what gets me to click out of curiosity, and seeing that it was drawn by the user themselves is what gets me to not close the tab in disgust.

Maybe even your very own ED article.
Enjoy your army of white knights.

Yeah, that doesn't work. Logout does though. Usually :3

It's must be some botched referer check rather than an actual fix then.

Bastards. That was my favourite FA toy. Why do they remove the best features :[

That's what I do too...

Which I used to, until that one commission which blew my interpretation out of the water. Now I keep the commission version more as fursona identification. It seems quite common with other artists, having an avatar of their fursona but drawn by someone else. It ceased to bug me since everybody else does it, and... to be honest, half of the artists I check out are based on their avatars. If they didn't look good or weren't something clever (or Dragoneer currently using an adorable avatar of Daggett), I might pass them over.

Hey OP, some friendly advice from one artist to another (if you're serious about being an artist) - don't work yourself up over pageviews at online sites. If you're really serious about art, you will keep doing even without the e-fame. jw, Zed, zydala and Arshes will tell you much the same.

Ugh, I cringe whenever someone asks this question.

Did no one notice the point he pretty much implied he diddles pooches?
