Yay. Only 8 044 472 to go!!
i think we should all split the money... everyone gets 1/1000th of a cent... not a bad deal...lol
And we`re in second place for the most referals behind ebaumsworld. I think its a kind of cool idea realy. I mean, he isn`t going to get to 1 billion any time soon, but the page might become famous or something along the way.
And he set the cookies to exprire at 1 hour.
The second outcome is he`ll reach his goal, but it will take a long time, probably after he dies and the page becomes derelict and the bet forgotten.
The last and least likley outcome is that he will reach his goal but it will be his decendants that recieve the money, wich will be worth a lot less in the future due to inflation.
He seems to be at a hit per 2-4 seconds. Just under 70k now. Anyway, pple might help him by rotating their ips and refreshing the page constantly, he`d get there a lot faster but it wouldnt be fair.
Hes probably going to spend a lot more keeping that domain name than any prize he statistically wount win. He could make a fortune in ads
ANYTHING is possible and it`s not like his bet has a time limit of when he has to have the hits in. So years down the road his buddies owe him $1000. Big deal! If it happens, it happens. If it doesn`t, it doesn`t. I`m sure he`s doing plenty of promoting etc, but I doubt it`s his entire life.
It`s a fun, quirky challenge. Participate or not. But you don`t have to insult people because their ideas are not as realistic as you`d like them to be.
Good luck to him though.. hope he`s not dead by the time he gets there.
I posted a link to it on the Main gamespy forums, OotS, AQ, 8-bit, and a bunch of other forums.
You have to imagine: even if he gets a million views, he`s still only 1/1000 of the way there. It`s not impossible, as many people are saying, just improbable. I`d be very impressed if he won the bet.
Besides, those who want to actually help can add 1-24 hits a day...It may take a while, but it`s possible.
It would be funny if the guy had to pay 1000pds. if he didnt get it, say, in a year. heh. His site would have to become as popular as google to do it.
You make a good point.
"Hits counted by statcounter.com, as there are only 6 billion people on the planet, I have set a cookie time between each persons counted hit to 1 hour"
Still, admittedly it`s highly improbable that it`s not going to happen. Not impossible, but looking at the statistics that Peaks drew up it`s going to be a heck of a long time till he achieves his goal - and besides, people will lose interest, so the amount of hits per second will decrease over time. So yeah, highly improbable.
That site has both total PCs and total internet users for the world, and broken down by country.
Wow, in the 7 hours between our posts, he got over 6,000 more. He might actually get this.
Refresh the page, your isp has simply cached the page...

By the way, there are a few stalkers following us around so warning you well in advance: http://www.onebillionpageviews.com/blog/... 8-)
anyway, its still interesting to check back and know the progress.
I`m pretty sure that`s not over-protective in any way, shape, or form.
In my experience, it should be up by tomorrow when they have all the links for the new day up.
That`s if they choose it, anyway.
No, it logs your IP. They want unique hits each time.
