On ArcGIS online a user can see how many ratings, comments, and views a layer gets. We are trying to establish some sort of metric to keep track of what data is popular among our users. I know an application gets a view for every time the application is loaded, but how is a layer view counted?

Does it count as one view once the layer is projected on the map on the open data site, or does the layer actually have to be downloaded?

Hi Adam,

Dataset views in Open Data are not captured in ArcGIS Online. You can track your metrics including dataset views, downloads, search terms, etc through Google Analytics. There are instructions on how to do this here: Configure your Open Data site—ArcGIS Open Data | ArcGIS.
